    Everything sounds great! And even though it’s only 9AM… I’d dive into those nachos if they were in front of me:@)

    I would eat those nachos for breakfast! Lots of great dishes to choose from here, thanks Jenna.

  5. Do you know, I actually had plans for Christmas in July, but it got away. Boy, does time fly by. You stopped me in my tracks with the mention of Blooming Onion Bread. I can’t wait to see this post.

  6. Leslie Anne Tarabella says:

    To be so organized! Can’t wait to see what you try. Especially interesting is the Corn Carbonara.

  7. Mary says:

    As usual you’re cooking up a storm in your painted apron Jenna! I’m trying to turn the oven on as little as possible and I need some Inside Out Berry Pie to cool down. Summer is sailing by but I’m already dreading the August heat and humidity. Hope you’re staying cool 🙂

  8. Jenna, you are truly organized! The peach basil flatbread is calling my name! I have fresh peaches and grow basil, sounds so summery and fresh! Thanks for all your cooking inspiration!

  9. Kim says:

    You had me at Nachos! They look so good, even though we just ate Mexican last night. That Parm Roasted Cauliflower looks great, too.

  10. Jenna, you have some wonderful recipes here. I shall be checking them all out for inspiration. Loving Mexican food always. Nanchos make a woman happy! Thank you for your sweet visit.

  11. The peach basil flatbread sounds extra yummy. Peaches are so good right now. Especially Chilton County peaches.

  12. Sandra Garth says:

    Peach & Basil Flatbread, Southern Fried Yellow Squash, 4 Cheese Caprese Mac & Cheese,
    Baked Coconut Chicken, and No Bake Lemon Jar Pie with Breakfast Nachos thrown in for good measure.
