Y'all...I don't know how it is possible, but next week is July 4th and suddenly I feel like this year is passing by at an alarmingly fast speed! But regardless how I feel about that, the fourth is coming, ready or not, and that means it's time to get out your grills! I love switching up my normal burger routine in the summertime and incorporating some of my favorite seasonal ingredients to make an extra special burger! My sweet and spicy bourbon peach chutney pork burgers are so full of flavor and are the perfect recipe to make for all of your summertime grilling festivities!
Summer is right around the corner and it's my favorite time of year for produce! Tomatoes in particular are at their peak and can most definitely shine on their own during this time. I love creating simple dishes when ingredients are so good that they just don't need that much more added to them! When BBQ season and outdoor entertaining are in full swing, I love bringing lighter and healthier dishes to the table to balance out the rest of the spread. My new favorite dish that I will be making all summer long is my garlic and dill tomato salad with cornbread croutons!
Happy almost 4th of July guys! We just got back from the beach yesterday and I am super excited that this week is a holiday week to help me ease back into the swing of things. I am trying to get my mind out of vacation mode and back into working mode after a week relaxation! And while I am trying to get back into the grind around here, one thing is for sure I will be lighting up the grill for the 4th and one of my favorite recipes is definitely going to happen! My easy pork rib marinade is the perfect recipe for fail-proof delicious ribs that would be perfect for your BBQ tomorrow!
I don't know about you, but when summer rolls around the last thing that I want to do is use my oven in any capacity. The air conditioner is already running 24/7 to keep the house at a reasonable temperature, and the last thing I want to do is add any heat to the mix! I am all about easy summer salads that I can grill up a protein to pair with it and call it done-so! My spicy peach and corn summer salad is my new obsession because it's spicy, sweet, and full of textures that you are going to love!
