Summer Dinner Ideas

Most people get excited for cooking during the Fall and Winter, but I’m here to say I really love cooking in the Summer. I think Summer foods/recipes are very underrated. I love all of the bright and fresh ingredients often used in Summer recipes. Below are some of my favorite Summer dinner ideas (that I honestly tend to make year-round).

Pasta al Limone from Bon Appetit

This pasta is to die for! I love to have it with grilled chicken and zuchinni.

Buffalo Chicken Salad from Delish

This is a recipe I have recently started incorporating into our “go-to” meals. It’s the type of salad that feels unhealthy but is actually healthy and satisfying. I don’t follow the recipe exactly. I mostly use the recipe for the chicken marinade then toss it together with romaine, blue cheese crumbles, corn, sunflower seeds, and blue cheese dressing.

Lemon Garlic Shrimp from Delish

This recipe feels like it takes no time to make and it’s healthy. I love to serve this with brown rice and asparagus.

Summer Corn Pasta from Laura in the Kitchen

I know this recipe might sound a bit strange but you’re just going to have to trust me when I say it’s delicious. We’ve had it on it’s own but it would also make the perfect side for a BBQ get together.

Baked Cod with Panko

This recipe I actually have not tried yet but I’m confident it will be good.

Shrimp Ceviche Tostadas

Ceviche recipe from Jessica Gavin and Homemade Tostada recipe from Isabel Eats

This ceviche and tostada recipe is a match made in heaven. For the tostadas, I like to squeeze some lime juice and sprinkle salt on them immediately after they come out of the oven.

The Cutest Graphic Tees of The Season

I used to be one of those people that never wore a graphic tee. I don’t know how I did it before, because graphic tees have become a staple of my casual summer wardrobe. When I have those days when I want to be comfortable but don’t know what to wear I reach for a graphic tee, jeans, and some flats. I specifically like graphic tees because they add an element of fun and personality to an otherwise boring outfit. Below are some of the cutest graphic tees for the season.

1. Yosemite 2. Big Sur 3. Vacay 4. Playa Grande 5. Gold Coast 6. Death Valley 7. Cannes 8. Beach Boys 9. Joshua Tree

The Formula To A Perfect Salad

I’m one of those people that genuinely loves having a salad for a meal. I know some people cringe at the thought of having a salad as a meal and that’s probably because it’s not a filling or exciting salad. Over the last few years I’ve realized there are a few key components that make a salad filling and satisfying enough to have as a meal.

Crunchy Lettuce

I know there are certainly better for you greens than romaine, BUT I love the satisfying crunch of Romaine Lettuce. There is something about the crunch of a lettuce that makes it feel more filling. If you want to make it more nutritionally dense then you can mix in kale or spinach.

Extra Vegetable

I like to add an extra vegetable (something other than lettuce) to make the salad more nutritional and to add an extra flavor. For this particular salad I added edamame.


Protein is obviously a key component to making a salad filling. In the case of the salad above, I used salmon. You can certainly make the protein vegetarian or vegan.

Something Crunchy

Like I said before, there is something about a crunch factor that makes a salad feel more filling and less boring to eat. This can come in many forms including croutons, a crunchy vegetable, or in this case I used dried ramens noodles.

Something Creamy

This one took me a long time to realize it is an important component to a great salad. When I think of salads I definitely don’t think of a “creamy” salad. However, there is something about a creamy factor that makes it almost feel indulgent and not “healthy”. You can add something creamy by adding cheese, a creamy dressing, or in this case I used avocado.


I will never been that person that doesn’t believe in salad dressing. I find that the people who don’t believe in salad dressing don’t like it because it “ruins” something healthy. THIS IS A LIE. Not all salad dressings are created equal. While I still buy some store-bought dressings (blue cheese) I generally find homemade dressings to be easy to make, better for you, and better tasting. The salad dressing you buy in a store are usually made of poor quality oils and questionable ingredients.
