Recipes for Late Summer Harvest!

Recipes for Summer Harvest

It’s the end of summer! I know, why do I sound a little bit excited? Well, it’s hotter than the devil down here in the south and frankly, I can’t wait for everything I eat to be pumpkin flavored. I will be sad, however, that it’s the end of the summer harvest! My husband and I grew quite a bit this summer (hot cherry peppers, green bell peppers, tomatoes, tomatillos, basil, the list goes on…), but we’re running out of ideas for recipes! As you can see from above, Foodie put out their latest app: SUMMER HARVEST! It’s free, so hop here to get it for iphone or ipad!
