Summertime Favorites

Today I wanted to pop in and post some of my favorite summertime meals to help you come up with ideas for 4th of July picnics or just to get you through the sweltering summer!  Here goes!

This Quinoa Salad recipe is by far my most popular and most requested recipe.  It's healthy, light and flavorful.  The flavors are uncomplicated but they just work.  Quinoa salad travels very well and is ideal for picnics on the 4th of July!

These Loaded Deviled Eggs are a family favorite and packed with flavor.  Eating deviled eggs without bacon will no longer be acceptable after you try these.  These will be the hit of any party/picnic/potluck.  Trust me.

Even though this Shrimp Scampi with Linguini is served hot, it has amazing summer flavors.  This is one of Wor's favorite meals and he doesn't like to share!

If you're looking for a baked good with summertime flavors, look no further than these Blueberry Scones with Clementine Glaze.  These delightful treats are moist and delicious with just the perfect amount of sweetness.  Looking back on the pictures makes me want to bake these right this minute!

Talk about another perfect summer salad!  This Tomato Salad is one of my personal favorites.  It works well as a side dish along all your grilled meats but I especially love it leftover with some eggs and toast.  These days I don't bother hunting down green tomatoes, but they are a delicious addition if you have them!

I can't pick just one or two summertime desserts to list so I'm going to give you a quick list.  They are all delicious and I don't think you would regret a single one of them.  I certainly wouldn't!
