Casual Main Dish Recipes for Summer

These are some of the main dish recipes I love to make in the summer for everyday fare or casual entertaining. Most are light, easy to prepare and budget-friendly. Many of the meats and some of the vegetables are grilled because I enjoy cooking outdoors as much as possible during the summer, although they all can be made indoors. Additionally, I include seasonal foods, because seafood, summer vegetables, fruits and berries are especially tasty and usually less expensive during the local harvest. I hope that you will try some of the recipes and.....enjoy!

Recipes and Tips for Preserving Foods

Anyone who maintains a garden knows that, in a successful growing season, there are certain vegetables that produce larger yields than a single household can possibly consume. Many of us look forward to the surplus so that we can preserve it to enjoy throughout the year. Posted on my site are some of my favorite recipes for preserving, as well as those using preserved foods, such as canned, frozen or dehydrated vegetables, herbs, pickles and condiments. In addition, I share tips from my own experiences, as well as suggestions for additional sources that provide extensive information on safety procedures.
