My Favorite Summertime Recipes

Blackberry Limeade
Well, it's almost summer! I can't believe it's less than a month away. I'll be off of work for two months & I can't wait! Of course I will be taking 9 credits, but they are all online, so it shouldn't be too bad. At least I won't have to worry about having to write a paper at the end of a work day during the summer months!

So yes, I'm very excited about summer & I have been counting down the days for quite some time. Not only am I excited about having time off, I'm also excited about spending time out on the Chesapeake Bay AND I'm excited about all of the delicious summer foods I am going to make.
