There is no better season for cooking than summer. No offense fall, winter and spring, but these warm weather months are where it’s at. When my biggest problem in the kitchen is that I can’t keep up with my weekly farm share of fruits and veggies, life is good.

I don’t hesitate to turn on the oven or a burner on the stove or fire up the grill even if it’s hot outside. No surprise, these dishes go big on vegetables in the absolute best way possible. Some with pesto and others with vinaigrettes and marinades, try these approachable and simple dinner recipes.
