End of Summer Recipe Round-Up: The Best of Summer’s Eats

This time of year is bittersweet. We’re all eager to welcome fall with open arms. More specifically, we can’t wait to sink our teeth into pumpkin-flavored everything. Plus, fall is our last taste of mild weather before winter comes rolling in with guns blazing. However, as much as we like fall, it’s always hard to bid adieu to summer. It’s the favorite season among most people. And even if summer doesn’t top your favorite season list, you can’t deny that you love the warm, sunny weather, the cook-outs, the fresh fruit, and kicking back for a bit.

Letting go is always hard, but there’s no need to be bitter about it. We’re going to say goodbye to summer by remembering the good times…and the good eats!
