Fresh Summer Recipes...Features from The Scoop #73

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Fresh Summer Recipes I am having so much fun as the new host of The Scoop linky party! It gives me a chance to see what all of you wonderfully creative people are up to this summer! I will be featuring some of your creations here on my blog, as well as sharing them on Facebook here and on Pinterest here…so be on the lookout! This week at The Scoop #73, I was inspired by your recipes using fresh summer-time fruits and veggies!

IMG_2605 Aren’t these veggies beautiful? Fairhope Supply Co. reminded us of the bounty of freshness that is available at our local farmer’s market!

spiced corn on the cob 031 And head over to Happier Than a Pig in Mud for some fun ideas for kicking up your corn on the cob!

Avocado Egg Salad I love egg salad and I love avocados so I am trying this recipe from Posed Perfection…sounds yummy!

Camping Guacamole 083 And my heart skipped a beat when I saw this one from Rustique Restoration! I think they serve guacamole in heaven!

7239f6654459e114977ca12fea646211_thuI loved this one from Make Mine Lemon…pineapple buttermilk sherbet! My dad was a big fan of pineapple sherbet…and of buttermilk…so this one has me feeling very nostalgic.

071712092324 I am a huge fan of blueberries. To me they are summer all rolled into one little berry! So you know I loved this recipe for cheesecake with homemade blueberry sauce from Creative Ideas who reminds us that July is National Blueberry Month!

Trio of Dips with Strawberries 1 Fresh strawberries are another summer favorite of mine! The Kitchen Is My Playground gives us a trio of dips to go along with them!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Strawberry Tunnel CakeAnd finally, I am sneaking in my own recipe here…my no-bake strawberry tunnel cake all decorated for the 4th…but really good all summer long!
