We all love getting new recipes to try out. Today our challenge is to make a card, or recipe card, or anything at all that will either hold a recipe or that we can write a recipe on AND there's one more part that's optional, but would be fun. SHARE your favorite summer recipe with us in your post -- I think we'd ALL love to get some new recipes. And it's summer -- the recipes don't need to be hard -- they can be as simple as what you throw into your favorite tossed salad, or a picnic dish, or whatever. I'd love to get some new ideas -- have fun with it!!!

My family and I tend to eat healthy food most of the year. That means not too much red meat.

However when the summer arrives we like to let loose and eat big juicy hamburgers, sausages, ribs *** You know summer meat!!!

I always make my own BBQ sauce and keep a stash in the fridge...

My recipe may look complicated but it isn't *** Just throw it all in the pot and simmer away.
My recipe card is a ready made one from Papertrey Ink... The hamburger image is from Lockhart Stamp Company, colored with Copics.. It's an inchie so it's perfect for a recipe card.


Check out Sharon's site HERE for some great inspiration and the links to the wonderful woman of this design team!!!

Great display for your recipe but I got to tell you that eating beef/red meat is really nutritious because cows eat grass ( just like a salad) and salades are good for you so re-think your take on this and enjoy a good steak. Just teasing. Pat
