I’ve mentioned this so many times but in the summer I just want to make recipes that are completed in under 20 minutes – start to finish. With gorgeous weather and fun outdoor activities happening, who wants to be stuck indoors? Not me! I also look for recipes that will be served room temperature or cold to make things even easier. Hey – summer is for relaxing!
