C & C in the Kitchen

One of my favorite things about summer is all the incredible food. Peaches, corn on the cob, avocados...I could go on. I also love dining al fresco (a photo from a recent Saturday night enjoying our deck).

I've been trying a lot of new recipes lately with fresh summer ingredients and thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you. Put these three together and you've got a delightful summer meal.

This peach salad with tomatoes, feta, and basil vinaigrette is incredible! I substituted the sherry vinegar with champagne vinegar. It seemed to make a lot of dressing, so I put away half for my salad the following day.

I'm a quinoa fanatic. I could eat it every day. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, you name it. I doctored up this recipe for avocado, tomato, quinoa salad with red and yellow bell peppers. We ate it for dinner and I had it for lunch the following day. Nutritious and delicious.

But I can't have you just eating side dishes (that's what Dr. B tells me). These apple turkey burgers with brie and caramelized onions from my childhood friend, are TO. DIE. FOR. Even you reluctant fowl eaters will enjoy them. 

Happy cooking and eating!
