Summer is well and truly here .... I find we tend to eat lighter meals at this time of the year. Fresh fruit often replaces vegetables as our sides - a very popular substitution too, I might add :-)
I love browsing through recipes ..... Pinterest has made this so much easier and more enjoyable. My recipe board is choc full of delicious, eye candy, that I'm systematically trying to work my way through.

That being said, I hit on two gems last week. When a recipe is requested twice in one week in our home, it's a winner !!!
Brittany found the first recipe ...... she eats virtually no meat. I try to get her too occasionally, but more often than not, it's a no go. Vegetarian recipes can be a bit bland and boring a lot of the time, so when we come upon a goodie, there's much rejoicing.

THIS POTATO PIE RECIPE was outstanding !!! Layers of potato, scallions, parsley and swiss cheese, sandwiched between layers of puff pastry, and then moistened with a creamy, garlic and nutmeg sauce ...... Oh yes ... heavenly, for sure :-) My family argued over the leftovers .....

Next up .....

GARLIC CAPRESE BREAD ... what's there not too love? The balsamic glaze that you pour over this, is yummy !!! I could have eaten it by the spoonful.

I can highly recommend both of these recipes - so worth it too give them a try.

For me, it's back to Pinterest ..... Let's see what culinary delight I can find for us to have for dinner tonight :-)


  1. Both dishes look delicious. I always have a hard time deciding what to make for dinner in the summer.

  2. Those look tasty....I'll have to go check them out.
