Summer Project #1: RELAX

In our little corner of the world on Cape Cod, the month of May is the official kickstart to the summer season. The open flags start popping out at shops and restaurants, the mini golf place gets the waterfall going, and all the inflatables start swinging in the wind in Wellfleet - don't know what we are talking about? Come visit us!

Summer means dreaming of a quiet time on the beach with a good book, or maybe it's all about get-togethers and BBQ parties. For us summer means stocking up those shelves in anticipation of your visit, and getting excited about all the new tips and tricks we learn from our fabulous customers each year. In the meantime we wanted to share some of our favorite recipes for the summer. 

Arugula-quinoa salad is very easy to put together and it can be the perfect starter or side dish. Throw a protein in there and it becomes a whole meal! 
One can never go wrong with an antipasto misto platter as the combinations are endless - prosciutto, salami, olives, marinated mushrooms, artichoke hearts, etc. (bonus: those might already be in your pantry). We love drizzling some olive oil and sprinkling some basil on our ciliegine cheese. 

Soup might not be on your summer menu, but this chilled avocado lime soup will quickly make you reconsider. It is smooth and well balanced - and you don't even have to turn on the stove for this!
Meat lovers rejoice! These ribs have just the right amount of sweetness and will fall right off the bone, while these party wings will be crispy, and insanely good!

Roasted cauliflower or zucchini can be a delicious meal on their own, or delight your taste buds as a side dish. We love za'atar on our cauliflower, while a little herb mix and parmesan cheese is all it takes to make mouth-watering zucchini chips. Experiment with different spices for these dishes and see what will become your new favorite!
And for a meal to be complete, one cannot forgo dessert. Count to five. That's how many ingredients you need for this amazing strawberry-mango sorbet. And you only need your trusty food processor for it. Yes, it does get better than this - when you try a bite! 

We don't think there's anything that screams summer more than a s'more. Even just talking about it brings back memories of family and friends, gathered around the campfire. But let's face it, the mosquitoes have been pretty bad these last couple of summers. And getting the fire going, setting all the items needed for making s'mores, making sure your toddler does not think he has superpowers and can touch the flames - that's all a lot of work. While we love making memories, sometimes all we want to do is get our hands on that ooey-gooey chocolatey special treat! So go ahead, try this recipe for s'mores dip. You won't regret it. 
However your summer turns out this year, we hope it is filled with lots of good times and amazing food! If you need help turning your summer dishes from 'just ok' to a crowd pleaser, you can find what you need 24/7 on our website, or reach out for some culinary advice Monday-Friday 9am-5pm EST
Happy Summer!
