Summer Foods Bucket List 2014


We are steadily checking off our 100 Days of Summer Fun list and I cannot believe how motivating and focusing it has been. I am a person who can be a creative jump-starter and quickly fizzle out into a non-finisher. It is something I am consciously trying to change and the publicized summer list has been helping beautifully.

Naturally, I began to imagine all the other lists I could make and decided to share another one for this summer. You see I have recently been getting my kitchen mojo back and have so many recipes earmarked in various cookbooks and magazines that I decided to collect the best ones on a Summer Foods Bucket List.

Some of these are the it-wouldn't-be-summer-without-this recipes that I grew up with and have made for years. Others are brand-new-to-me recipes that sound delicious to the whole family (not counting Kai the picky eater of the family). I've provided links to the ones I could find on the web in case you are interested in making them yourself. As I did with my Summer Fun list, I will create a tab below my header where I will cross off the items as we go. For this list I will also give a rating by each recipe. My family has great fun impersonating the Top Chef judges after every meal so I promise the ratings will be hard-earned!
