Recipes for Summer Vegetables

Every season is special in its own way, and each has its own offerings of fresh produce. In this day and age, we can get most foods all year long, but seasonal produce is usually tastier and less expensive. That seems especially true of summer vegetables. I have chosen the most popular summer vegetables that can be found anywhere, such as tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash, beans, corn and cucumbers. I listed some of my favorite recipes for utilizing the produce in delicious main dishes, side dishes and other presentations in which they are the main or key ingredient. Most of the recipes are quick, easy and healthy, so take a look and give some a try.

Southern Recipes

I moved to North Carolina years ago and discovered that many southern foods are very similar to my family's Pennsylvania Dutch cooking and some are identical. That is not surprising since the heritage of both cultures is deeply rooted in agriculture. However, each region has some of its own unique ingredients and methods. This is a personal collection of southern recipes, some of which came from southern friends, others of my own creation based on southern-style cooking and typical ingredients. Additionally, I included a section for recipes shared by visitors to the site. I hope you will enjoy southern cooking with these recipes as much as this transplanted northerner.
