Summertime Favorites

When the weather turns warmer, our bodies seem to naturally crave lighter, healthier food.  Gone are the heavy pasta dishes and the pumpkin pies, and in come the salads, grilled meats, and fruity sweets.

Here are a few summery treats that I’m really looking forward to making in the coming months.  Enjoy!
