This upcoming holiday weekend is a big one in my family. Each year we gather at my grandmother’s lake cottage and spend at least 3 days eating, swimming, boating, and relaxing by evening bonfires. It is heaven. And we are always looking for new foods to try out on the ever expanding family. With that in mind, here are this week’s Good Food Reads! Enjoy.
Olive Oil Zucchini Bread, perfect for that summer bumper crop of zucchini that is on the way.
Mark Bittman’s Salmon Burgers. Because sometimes you just need to mix up the summer grill. I think these sound perfect for the holiday weekend!
Momofuku’s Soy Sauce Eggs. I’m completely intrigued by these. Has anyone tried them?
I do love a good Cooking Light recipe when trying to be mindful of calories. Here’s a Sausage, Shrimp and Quinoa Skillet that looks amazing!
Speaking of shrimp, I can’t wait to make this Hot Honey Shrimp. I’ve been so into the spicy, spicy foods lately and this one seems right up my alley.
Simplest Cabbage Slaw, via Alexandra’s Kitchen. Perfect for all those CSA boxes!
And another classic from Alexandra’s Kitchen, Zucchini Bread. I love to double the batch and freeze some for later!
Loving this collection of 10 Vegetarian Recipes from Love + Lemons. I’m filing it away for Meatless Mondays! I’m especially excited about the orzo stuffed peppers. Yum.
Two Bean Summer Vegetable Chili. Because even though it’s 90 degrees out, I still could eat soup/chili all day, every day. This is a light and summery take on a classic.
Also curious about this Curried Fried Rice. Would be great for leftover rice or maybe even quinoa!
I had this post all ready to go and then I got an email from Better Homes and Gardens (random, I know) with Copycat Recipes That are Better Than the Originals. I can’t wait to try the DQ Crunch Cone dupe, the At Home Animal Style Fries, and the Dole Whip! Yum.
And finally, Layered Buffalo Chicken Dip. Because it’s a holiday weekend and calories don’t count. Right? Right.
Happy (almost) Fourth of July, friends!!
