Summer Flavors Bucket List {Treats Not To Miss Before Summer Ends}

Corn on the Cob Image via Delish
Summer....we wait for you all year long for so many reasons including enjoying those familiar summer treats that were equally enjoyed in childhood as they are in adulthood! Here are five of our favorite summer indulgences not to be skipped. What are yours?

1.) Corn on the cob! Who can get through summer without savoring some corn on the cob! Since we are in Illinois, we can enjoy wonderful, freshly picked ears! Want to change it up? Delish has some unique combinations to try out including wrapping in bacon!

2.) Watermelon! A hot summer day just begs for a cool wedge of watermelon! Sitting at the edge of a dock, feet dangling in water, savoring a slice of watermelon--divine! Looking for a switch-up? How about grilling watermelon like Serious Eats did!

3.) Tomatoes! It took us awhile to experience real summer weather. Now that it is here, those tomatoes in the garden should be ripening up! Great on sandwiches and burgers and in salads too! Need inspiration? Southern Living has quite the collection of recipes including Fried Green Tomatoes, of course!

4.) Grilled Food! Doesn't matter if it is barbecue chicken, burgers or portabella mushrooms--grilling in the summer is a must! Looking for an interesting grilled combo? Delish has some interesting ideas including Grilled Chicken Mac and Cheese Pizza!

5.) Ice Cream! Enough said........

We hope that you are having an amazing summer!

Who has a sweet tooth? We do! With Fourth of July next week, we have rounded up a few patriotic desserts that we LOVE! Here are some ways to add some flare to your Fourth of July spread:

These Pom-pom Firecracker Cupcakes from I Heart Naptime are absolutely adorable:

Tastes of Lizzy T's Twizzler Firecracker Cupcakes put another spin but a different type of sparkle on top of cupcakes!

For a little healthier spin, you can make a Fresh Fruit Flag like this one by Home is Where the Boat Is.
