I'm not sure about you, but I feel like I blinked and July was gone!

We're charging through the dog days of summer here, and trying to pack in as many adventures as we safely can.

This month, you all were still (!) making banana bread, but also trying your hands at a delicious Puerto Rican dessert.

You were grilling and dreaming of Maine lobsters, too. We're with you there.

Did you miss any of these recipes? If so, it’s not too late to join in the fun.

    This became an instant favorite, and we can see why! It comes together quickly, has bright flavors, and cooks up in one pan which means fewer dishes. It's a giant dinnertime win.

  • Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps

    Low carb lettuce wrap with sliced steak, mint, radish, cucumber and peanuts wrapped up on a plate. A dipping sauce is on the plate as well.

    You get a two-fer on this one! The steak marinade can also double as the dipping sauce, which saves a lot of time. These are easy to serve as well. Simply place all the ingredients on a platter and let everyone assemble their own lettuce wraps.

  • Gluten-Free Banana Bread

    Summer days begin and end with lobster rolls. You can get uber fancy if you'd like, but when it comes down to it, we prefer to take the simple route. The filling takes only a handful of ingredients, mix it together, and pile it onto a toasted bun!
