Happy official first weekend of summer!

It always feels so weird that once we hit the first day of summer, the days actually start to get SHORTER. Ideally, they’d keep getting longer until the end of August, right?! Crazy!

I have a full day of recipe testing and kitchen work planned for today; what are you up to this weekend?

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!

Easy Strawberry Shortcake Recipe – This Easy Strawberry Shortcake recipe starts with homemade buttermilk biscuits that are topped with fresh, macerated strawberries, and homemade whipped cream. A summer staple!
