Our Favorite Summer Recipes...
For when it's too hot to cook
With temperatures creeping up into triple digits over the last few weeks we thought it might be a perfect time to bring you a roundup of some of our favorite summer recipes.
We've all been there. It's hot outside, the A/C (if you're lucky) is working overtime to keep the house to a moderate temperature, and you're faced with the age old question... what the heck do I cook when it's so hot out?
If the idea of turning your oven on fills you with dread, you're in luck! We've collected a handful of our favorite summer recipes that are sure to please. And just to sweeten the deal, we've taken the liberty of also including our recommendation for which Bella Vida wine will pair perfectly with each one!
