Summertime Fun! A Round-up of Previous Posts

Although I have a summer of blogging ahead of me, I thought it would be fun to dust off some of my previous summertime posts, for those looking to get a head start on the fun! 

1- We've rented another cottage for a few weeks this summer, and I can't wait to make some S'mores.  Last year, we made them with Kinnikinnick S'moreables

2- Looking for a place to cool down from the heat and indulge in a summer treat?  My take on two popular cafés is here: Caffe Demetré and La Paloma

3- Want to grow your own local produce rather than buy from someone else, this product may help you get started!  Groorganic Garden Planner

4- A traditional dish that I had never tried before meeting my husband, that I now crave regularly.  A little squeamish using raw fish?  Now that I'm pregnant, I bake the fish first, chop it into chunks, and then put everything together.  It still tastes great!  Ceviche

5- A traditional French salad, that can be served warm or cool.  Tons of protein, plus fresh veggies make this a filling, but simple dish:  Niçoise Salad

6- I imagine we'll be eating some version of this recipe at the cottage, although probably with bass instead of halibut!  Oven Baked Halibut

7- My thoughts on the cottage we rented last year. Golden Beach Resort Review (Rice Lake).  I'll write a review of the new place later this month.

8- Looking for a place to go in the United States?  We spent a few days here: Atlantic View Hotel, Dewey Beach, Delaware Review

9- Speaking of cottages, this is what was for dinner when we went last year.  Still looks yummy! Last Year's Cottage Menu Plan

10- In the Pittsburgh area and would rather go out for dinner than make your own on a hot summer's eve?  Last summer we checked out Lidia's, and weren't disappointed!
