Summertime Fried Egg Sandwich
A little unconventional, but totally delicious. Just hear me out. Untoasted sourdough with a fried egg, mayo, dijon mustard, and lots of black pepper might sound like not your usual egg sandwich, but it’s a lovely combo!

Burrata + Pesto Grilled Cheese
Isn’t burrata the best? It’s like ricotta and mozzarella cheese had a baby. Add that to some toasty bread and add some fresh basil leaves and a generous swipe of pesto, and you’re in sandwich heaven.

Perfect Pumpkin Lasagna
This is my go-to dish when the weather gets cooler. Vegetarian but still incredibly hearty and filling, it’s got caramelized mushrooms, alfredo sauce, pumpkin, and tons of cheese.

Almond Pavlova
I love a pavlova in hot weather, which AZ has in abundance! Pavlovas are great made individually or large (like this one) to serve a crowd. The outside is lovely and crispy, while the inside is marshmallowy soft. Top the meringue with whipped cream and your favorite fruits, and it’s definitely time for dessert!

Fresh Mango-Cantaloupe Salsa
I absolutely love this fruity and kinda spicy salsa. Scoop it up with warm tortilla chips, have a cold beer on the side, and just try to stop from eating the whole bowl. I dare you.

Sparkling Cider Floats with Caramel Sauce
This one is debatable because it’s more of a dessert than a beverage, but I’m putting it in this category because it’s so good. Classic Martinelli’s sparkling apple cider in a glass with a hefty scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce sounds like the perfect drink to me!

White Christmas Cake
My absolute favorite, be-all end-all of Christmas desserts. Fluffy and cloud-like angel food cake flavored with vanilla and almond gets covered with a marshmallowy seven minute frosting. It tastes like Christmas! The little deer and tree decorations are totally optional, but add to the magic of this cake.
