Garden Pasta Salad

A recent trip to our local favorite farm stand had me super excited to try some new recipes. I am like a kid in a candy store when it comes to farmers markets or farm stands. I am drawn to color and just looking at all the glorious farm goods gets me every time. I tend to buy way more than I should and then wind up trying to figure out how to use it all. Well I made sure this time to use up every last bit of my haul that day. My cherry tomatoes are doing so well so I made sure to pick up some. The red ones were shaped like strawberries. They were so cute I couldn't help but buy them. 

What is not to love about this bowl of goodies?  See I told you, eye candy....

Free "Fire Up The Grill" Cookbook with Kraft

"This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Lunchbox. The opinions and text are all mine"

One of the many things we like to do in the summer is have a BBQ.  Even though some are heading back to school it is still summer right?  Luckily our schools do not go back until after Labor Day so we can soak up at least another month of summer fun. Kraft has always been a great resource to help me out in the kitchen and I love how this cookbook gives me more options for the grill. Hubby does all the grilling so I like that I have more options for him and it keeps my kitchen a lot less messy and hot.

Having a BBQ this weekend or are you planning a big shindig before summer is out?  Make sure you click on either picture and you will be able to DOWNLOAD FOR FREE: Kraft "Fire Up The Grill" Cookbook. Yes, it is totally FREE to download and you will have 15 new BBQ recipes.

All of the recipes look super tasty...from burgers and dogs to desserts this cookbook has you covered. Our daughter is really digging hot dogs right now so I know the hot dog bar would be a great addition to our next get together.

Raspberry Lemonade

There is nothing better than a cool refreshing glass of lemonade on a hot summer day. When you elevate it to the next level by adding in another fruit and oh my goodness. During a heat wave like what we are going through right now I try to keep lemonade on hand to help keep the heat at bay. 

I have a love/hate relationship with the heat. I love summer and all that goes along with it but when the heat gets excessive I struggle and have a hard time.  So when the temperature soars in the upper 90's you won't see me out and about too much. I am perfectly content to sit right here in my air conditioning and stay cool.

Taco Tater Tot Casserole

If you have been following Served Up With Love for a while then you already know how much our family eats taco inspired meals. What is funny is that when we just eat tacos for dinner we always have tater tots to go with them. I am not sure why but it just works. So for years now I have been thinking of combining the two into one dish but just never took the step to do it.
