God, I love Summer foods. It's not even just the tastes but all the colors and variety and how everything is cool and fresh. I love all the produce I've never used before that I discover every year and learning how to use it. I love incorporating fruit into savory dishes. I love cold pastas, frozen treats, and grilled everything.
