Hey Friends! We’re back with another edition of Good Food Reads. I think one of my favorite things about this whole blogging thing is discovering all of the fun, creative, cool things people are doing out on the ole internet. While we often focus on a certain theme or ingredient, sometimes I just love to highlight my favorite foodie finds from the last few weeks. In this week’s Good Food Reads: We Got That Friday Feeling, I’m sharing my latest inspiring finds from across the web! Need some inspiration for your weekend? Read on!

I recently took my daughter to New York City and it was SO fun to see the city through her eyes. Vibrant and alive, New York City is one of my favorite places to visit. So many iconic sites, so much amazing diversity and of course THE FOOD! Although we barely scratched the surface of the dining scene, let’s talk about a few of our most recent experiences, from the kitschy to the iconic to the out of the way.
Hello Summer, beautiful Minnesota Summer! After surviving the months of frigid cold and snow, Minnesota shows it’s amazing summer beauty with gorgeous temperatures, amazing greenery and sunny days. And ya you betcha- these long Minnesota summer days come with glorious Minnesota summer food! Grilling, farmer’s markets, backyard gardens…all of the fresh flavors of summer!
I decided for this one I would get a little help from my friends. Read on for a sampling of Minnesota summer food, highlighting some amazing summer ingredients. All of the recipes in this Good Food Reads are from fellow food bloggers based in this amazing state!
In my family, the Fourth of July is a thing. Each year, we gather at my grandmother’s cottage on a lake in northern Minnesota for some of the best days of the summer. We fill our time with family, boating, swimming, and of course, good food. On the day of the actual holiday, the whole family pitches in to make a huge spread of amazing, classic summer time food.
Are you ready for some Egg-citing Chicken Recipes? Yeah, I went there. And I don’t care. After a long day at work, I’ve been trying to come up with a fun title for this week’s Good Food Reads, which is all about great new recipes for that kitchen staple: chicken. As it turns out, when you are tired and start playing around with chicken puns, it rapidly degenerates into fits of laughter about bad, kid-style chicken jokes. Good times, friends, good times.
Chicken puns aside, I really do have some great new recipes for you all this week. I always keep a variety of chicken in my freezer, ready for last minute dinners or recipe experimentation. It’s inexpensive, relatively healthy, and generally quick to prepare. What’s not to love? My biggest complaint with chicken is that it can easily get a little boring so I’m always on the lookout for recipes to spice it up (both literally and figuratively)….
The gorgeous weather is heating up! Minneapolis hit 100 degrees on Memorial Day Weekend and it has been beautiful ever since! Since so much of what we decide to eat is tied to the weather, that must mean it’s time for some cool treats! Welcome to Good Food Reads: Popsicle and Sorbet (Part 1) featuring some delicious recipes for homemade popsicles and homemade sorbet. This is part 1, only because I found so much great stuff out there, that I’m positive that before we move into August, I’ll have to bring you a Part 2!
And since I know so many of you make so many of your own homemade popsicles and sorbets, leave us a comment below and tell us your favorites! (we may decide to feature your recipe in Part 2!)
I don’t know if it’s the warm weather or the abundance of fresh veggies, but in the summer I have a serious need to eat salads just about every day. More often than not, I just chop up whatever I have in my fridge at the time and toss it into a giant bowl with a handful of lettuce or spinach and call it a day. Recently, I’ve been inspired to up my salad game and have been slowly collecting new recipes for salads of all kinds. This week’s Good Food Reads: Summer Salads is my new salad to do list!
It is a bit hard to believe that the unofficial kickoff to summer is almost here! Since we had nearly two feet of fresh snow here just over a month ago, it still feels a little strange to be sitting in the 90 degree heat on my porch today. Don’t get me wrong, I am loving every minute of this heat wave, but it was definitely odd to go from snow boots to sandals so quickly!
The weather has turned in Minneapolis! Finally we have nice temperatures and sunshine. That can only mean one thing…summer grilling! We’ve cleaned off our grills and our patio tables. We’ve taken out the deck cushions and are getting the planters ready for flowers. Finally, we’ve gone in search of some fabulous summer grilling recipes from our blogger friends and we can’t wait to share them with you! Good Food Reads: Summer Grilling is your guide to the best of this summer’s grilling recipes!
