Best of summer recipes!

Do you have a list for summer recipes you want to try? I do but am currently in a total funk. I think I ate salami and tomatoes over the sink for lunch and kids might have eaten some yoghurt, not entirely sure. LOL. Here are some of my annual favorites, hope you’ll like some of those!

Six Minute Seared Ahi Tuna Steak: delicious, you almost forget that its not meat. Love the sear on these, make sure to measure the marinade exactly!

These ahi tuna steaks take only 6 minutes to make! Crispy and seared on the outside; medium-rare on the inside. Healthy, fast, and easy!

Honey Lime Tequila Shrimp Tacos: make sure to make that crema, so delicious! Even the kids eat it and it’s really easy to assemble.

Grilled Ginger – Sesame Chicken Salad: this is definitely one of my favorites, I even served it for a dinner party and everybody loved it. Because its Napa cabbage it holds up better than regular lettuce would.


I keep buying apricots and peaches and often times they are too hard or lack favor, so into this Roasted Stone fruit with ricotta and mint they go or throw them on ice cream for a delicious summery dessert!

And of course, there’s nothing easier (albeit slightly time consuming but requires so little effort) than merengues, pavlovas, little egg white cookies mixed with heavy cream and any fruit – so satisfying and delicious. I’ve yet to meet a person who doesn’t love this dessert. Countless recipes out there but I’ve gone by this one from Nigella Lawson.
