18 Summer Recipes To Help You Make the Most of the Season

Labor Day is almost here, but we don’t want to let go of those summer recipes yet!  We help you decide what to eat for mains, sides, snacks, and dessert…oh and what to drink with those meals as well…so you can make the most of the last long weekend of summer!

Sticky Spicy Ribs are packed with flavor and fall-off-the-bone tender. Put down your shame and pick up your wet naps - this is gonna get delicious.

Everyone knows that Labor Day weekend is the beginning of the end of summer.  Even if it’s not officially fall, the days are creeping that direction.  Days are getting a little cooler (unless you’re in Houston), a little shorter, and a little more packed with ordinary work or school activities.  Don’t get me wrong, I love fall, but I think summer deserves a good send-off.  We had a good run!

And to help you celebrate, we put together some summer recipes to help you achieve those last-minute summer food goals.  Barbecue, frosty cocktails, and a s’mores-inspired dessert are just the start of your menu!

Here are 18 summer recipes we’re thinking about enjoying this weekend…

Welcome to Ready to Yumble!

We would like to share our love of cooking (or maybe more accurately, eating) with you, so we plan to use this blog to present you with recipes that pass our rigorous testing standards. You know, is it tasty, I mean REALLY tasty, and stuff… (Does anything else really matter?)

So pull up a chair.  Grab a relaxing adult beverage.  To kick things off, this week we offer you a full fall feast, composed of some of our favorite seasonal recipes:

After that, we hope to roll out a recipe or two every week to keep you entertained and well fed.  Happy eating!  Now… LET’S GET READY TO YUMBLLLLLLLLLE!
