|Turkey Burgers with Kale Chips and heirloom tomato and cucumbers|
1.5 lbs ground turkey (organic)
For the salad I used chopped tomatoes, one cucumber, a red onion and a splash of red wine vinegar and olive oil with a shake of garlic salt to finish.
|A Day At the Beach cocktail|
One thing that the Summertime Anytime cookbook takes seriously is the art of the cocktail. On the pages, there are inventive versions of classics and fresh takes on tried and true recipes. One I love to serve is A Day at The Beach. After one sip, I'm instantly transported to my favorite island.
A DAY AT THE BEACH
1 oz coconut rum
1/2 oz Amaretto liqueur
4 oz orange juice
1 oz grenadine
What I also love about The Summertime Anytime Cookbook are the playlist suggestions, the tips on hurricane lantern uses and, above all, ways to create a vacation atmosphere at home. Yes, the food and recipes are excellent, but there is so much more to this Shutter's original by Dana Slatkin— the topics outside of food are the most enticing. If you don't have a copy, I highly recommend it! You can buy one online, but my wish is that you will visit this quaint hotel and browse the gift shop just as I did. You never know who you'll meet...
