Last weekend, the friends and I went on our annual camping and tubing trip at Cache Creek. Cache Creek isn’t really a hard-core-hike-to-your-site-bring-only-what-you-can-carry sort of experience. It’s more of a pull-off-the-highway-and-pitch-tents-on-the-lawn-with-neighbors-five-feet-away-from-you sort of deal. I know that may not sound like that much fun to some, but I love it. Movie projected on a screen under the stars? Got it. Bathrooms and a generator? Check. Steak tips, baked beans in a dutch oven, OYSTERS, grilled corn, hot dogs, burgers, and a bacon lattice (just like last year!)? Done and DONE.

I love the summertime.

Don’t take it for granted! Here are 10 recipes that you should consider making soon because before we know it, it’s going to be Fall and we will be wishing for 100 degree weather and fun weekends to play by the water :)

  3. What a beautiful collection of recipes. Luckily, we’ve covered Sangria at our house over and over! And, I actually had seared ahi tuna at a restaurant the other night. But, I better get cracking on the rest of your menu!
