As I mentioned yesterday, there’s just something special about summer gatherings with friends. Those care free, lazy days of summer, where friends come together around some scrumptious summer foods, are some of my favorite memories.
Today I have the privilege of hosting a few of my blogging friends for a Virtual Summer BBQ right here at my place, and I’ve requested that they all bring one of their favorite cold summer dishes.
I don’t know about you, but I am always in need of some tried and true ideas for our picnics and get togethers, and these are perfect “Must Try” Summer recipes. We are serving them up in just enough time so that you can dish them out this Memorial Day.
Since Philadelphia Cooking Cream is graciously providing an amazing prize, and I have used the cooking cremes since the first week they came out, I am going to sing their praises a bit. As I have been attempting to create a repertoire for my soon to launch Ten Minute Dinners  site, I’ve learned that the easy to blend cooking cremes transform everyday dishes from ordinary to extraordinary. Their texture and chef-inspired flavors have become a staple in many of my dishes, so I can’t wait to try out these new recipes for more simple and quick ideas.
Now, prepare to become hungry.
I’ve been looking at these recipes for two days now and my stomach keeps growling. They all look SO yummy, but you will decide which one wins the top prize, so browse generously and vote.
I’ve invited these ladies because they are all bloggers that I enjoy and respect, so hopefully you will find some fun new reads, as well as great recipes.
Don’t they all look amazing? Not it’s your turn!
Please come join in our Virtual Summer BBQ, and enjoy browsing these amazing recipes.
