Yes, deviled eggs are a summer-time must! I love that everyone has a slightly different recipe too. I have a friend who puts a dash of Tabasco in hers and another friend who makes them with cajun spices. Simple or spicy, they're a great summer recipe. Thanks!

Leesa, thank you for the wonderful recipe! I love ideas that come from the garden. I have tomatoes and several kinds of herbs that are almost ready. Can't wait to try this one! Thanks!

My favorite is Spanish Tomato Rice. I take about a pound of hamburger, a green pepper, onion, and chili powder or cumin. Brown that and add fresh tomatoes, and spanish spices and 1/4 cup of white rice. add some brown sugar and salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the spices, ( add whatever fresh herbs you have in the garden that are tasty, such as cilantro) cover and simmer for at least 15 minutes, until the rice is completely cooked. Add water or tomato juice if the juices boil dry before the rice is cooked. Best total fresh garden recipe I can cook in the summer in Ohio! If the timing is right, we have corn on the cob with it!

My all time favorite summer dish is deviled eggs. Just mix the yokes with some mayonnaise, yellow mustard and pickle relish and stuff the eggs. Sprinkle with paprika and you're done! Always reminds me of home.

Caroline, thanks for sharing! Your dressing sounds both delicious and healthy!

My new favorite recipe is actually a salad dressing. My neighbors introduced me to it. All it contains is olive oil, chopped cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper. It's such a light and refreshing salad dressing that is perfect for the summer heat!

Sounds delicious! And I love the mustache glasses!

This recipe for sparkling bourbon lemonade was in the paper recently--I tried it last weekend, very refreshing! Also good without the bourbon! http://www.parade.com/19399/bobbyflay/sparkling-bourbon-lemonade/
