the summer book

I don't know where the time goes these days--can't ever seem to find the time to update this blog (and I don't think it's going to get any better now that So You Think You Can Dance is back). But now that summer is here, I'll be pulling out one of my favorite books, The Summer Book by Susan Branch, filled with lots of easy summer recipes and ideas.
