Five Summer Meals I Almost Forgot About.
It happens. This is a reminder to myself to MAKE THESE NOW. I need dinner help!
This grilled blackberry basil smash sandwich. OHMAHGAH. Making it today.
This brown butter garden veggie pasta skillet. I welcome vegetables this way.
Hello clams casino pizza!! This is probably in my top ten as far as recipes I’ve shared on the blog. If you happen to make this… try to use fresh clams. GAH.
Caramelized pineapple quesadillas with strawberry salsa. Do you think I’m a bit obsessed with fruit? Sheesh.
Annnd these crab cake sliders with kiwi salsa. I cannot get enough.
What have your go-to summer meals been lately? I’m in a rut of eating tomatoes and burrata and basil and bread. Not that I’m complaining…

The grilled blackberry basil smash sandwich and the caramelized pineapple quesadilla are being made today. One for lunch and one for dinner. Those two meals have got some of my favorite food combos of the summer. But then so is tomatoes, cheese, basil and or bread or pasta. So obviously, tomorrow has got to be the pasta for dinner an the pizza for lunch! Suddenly I have a lot of eating to do this weekend. I have plans to make many, many foods now! LOL
Thanks for the reminder of the clams casino pizza! this was on my to-make list when you first posted it, but I had forgotten all about it. Will definitely be making it soon!
Every single one of those pictures has literally just made me drool!
For summer, I’m all about this cold tuna casserole salad that my mom has been making my entire life – http://www.iadorewhatilove.com/1/post/2013/06/recipe-cold-tuna-casserole-salad.html – I literally make it, eat it, and make it again. My hubby even loves it and he HATES tuna!!!!!
http://www.iadorewhatilove.com – Check out my blog!!
That blueberry grilled cheese?? YES please!!
Brown butter pasta?! What?! Need. It. Now.
Your pictures honestly having me drooling! I’ve just started getting into photography and hope that I can someday get my pictures to be even close to how AMAZING yours are!
That pizza with the clams is genius. I am such a seafood addict and that looks like a great dinner time meal. I love the blackberry melt, I also like to put goat cheese in mine to get that melting cheesy goodness with a bit of bite. So i am so glad you post these up
That grilled cheese looks so good! But i have to say that your recipe for Sweet & Spicy Chicken, Corn & Avocado Tostadas with Blueberry Peach Salsa from last year is my go to summer meal. We ate it so often last summer that my husband (who normally just eats what’s in front of him) actually requested it when I brought home some fresh corn the other day. We had it that night and it was just as good as I remembered! Love your recipes :)
I love it all! I can’t decide which one i want to make first! Maybe the Blackberry Basil Sandwich! I’m so hungry now! Thank you for a wonderful post!:)
I want to eat all of this!!!!
I made that blackberry basil grilled cheese several times last summer while my man was out of town and that’s how I fell in love with your blog!
We’ve been on a Mexican kick lately. It’s just so easy to make taco salad/burritos/whatever! And so delicious.
These are meals that dreams are made of! What a fantastic collection of dinner ideas.
I made your blackberry basil grilled sandwich… I LOVED it!
Pineapple quesadillas… ok, yes, thank you!
Crab cake sliders on my to make this week list.
Have a great weekend!!!
Nothing makes me want cheese more than this blog. You are the queen of capturing cheesy gooeyness in all its glory. I want that pasta. Now.
This blog always makes my mouth water. I want all the things a plate in front of me right now. Can’t wait to try and make all of these now.
oh my lord blackberry grilled sandwich!
i only have raspberries in the house right now may have to do a trial run with those before i get the real deal.
So this has nothing to do with anything, but given your love of all things sprinkles:
And there I thought I wasn’t hungry…. haha food porn in the FINEST
I’m not even hungry but I need that blackberry and basil sandwich, like right now!!!!!!!!
I just ate and these made me hungry again!
burrata is my kryptonite – can’t get enough of that stuff – it’s just so hard to find down here in the south it seems?!?!
They all look delicious.
Just googled “burrata.” Oh the things I have to learn haha
OMG…that blackberry sandwich!!!!!
my goodness…that first sandwich. oh my GOSH! Gonna go make it right now!
I neeeeed to make that pasta skillet!
Hmmm, I just pinned these! :)
I found that brown butter skillet pasta recipe on here a few weeks ago and made it – was a huge hit with anyone who wanted to sample it when i brought it for lunch at work… def a great way to get yummy veggies into my favorite staple iteams… butter, cheese and pasta lol
OMG the brown butter garden veggie pasta skillet has become a staple in my house. Favorite!!!
I want one of everything (except maybe the Clams Casino pizza… I KNOW, I’M SORRY, I just don’t care for clams.
I’ve made the smash sandwiches, the brown butter veggie skillet and the pineapple quesadillas with strawberry salsa- love them all! I had been in a major dinner rut, with summer road trips and constant (I mean, out of control) eating out. So I’ve spent the past few days playing catch up with some homemade summery goodness. Glazed chicken tostadas with roasted corn, avocado and blueberry peach salsa; coconut chicken tenders with peach honey mustard (served with pineapple cornbread topped with leftover fruit salsa); roasted vegetable mac & cheese; and a couple of fresh-picked berry cobblers. I really need caprese in my life, maybe one of your fun summer pizzas and a chopped salad or two. Also, I am fully ready to spend the next month OD’ing on watermelon , tomatoes and corn. Pumpkin and apple season (swoon) will be here before we know it!
