The warm weather is finally here and for me that means eating outdoors as much as possible! Living in an apartment building in Brooklyn, NY we don’t have a backyard, but we do have an amazing rooftop with grills and tables to eat outside. If you have been following me for a while, you know I am all about creating healthy and delicious recipes using fresh, simple ingredients that are also easy to prepare. This Summer Recipe Roundup is a collection of summer time recipes that your whole family will love.
