Now that summer is here it’s time for cookouts, barbecues, and picnics. I don’t know about you but I’m always looking for new recipes to try but I want a recipe that I know will be good. I’ve made recipes before and they turned out not to be good at all, which left me scrambling at the last minute to find something to take to a cookout. So, we wanted to share with you some of our favorite summer recipes. But these recipes are not just for summer they would be good any time of the year.
