    Must be the "Summer of the Bean"

    California Bean Dip!

    Goes great with all foods- especially those Mexican types that have already been mentioned above.

    Re: What's your favorite summer recipe?

    OK, honest answer...it's not my 'favorite' recipe, since I always like to change it up, but my wife raved about a new dressing I made (our CSA share had a bunch of lettuce):

    http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Green-G...r_results_p1i2

    And...now that I wrote that I made a salad dressing, and I'm a member of a CSA, I shall go drink a beer to redeem my manliness.

    I'm just screwing with you. But in all seriousness, you might want to have your boyfriend open that beer so you don't break a nail.

    Cut me some slack, man...I've lived in iowa city for 10 years and my wife works at the hippie food store, I'm bound to pick up some of that stuff.

    Besides, the good dinner quite possibly played a role in getting me laid last night...and before you say it, yes...by my wife.

    Re: What's your favorite summer recipe?

    Chicken Burgers

    Ground Chicken - you can mix them with anything you like. We mix them with Mushrooms, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, 1/2 cup of Breadcrumbs. Also put some season salt in the burger and then put more on both sides. Have put ranch seasoning in it too which is very good, but ranch gives me headaches sometimes, so don't use it anymore. But if you like ranch and it doesn't make you sick, add it too.

    You can cook them on the grill on George Foreman grill. My wife likes to make a Sun-Dried Tomato mayo with it which is pretty good. Great for leftovers too.

    For a healtier option, I like turkey burgers. We like to mix in various things like onions, peppers, etc. Throw some panko crumbs in there for texture. Pretty solid.

    Re: What's your favorite summer recipe?

    Just FYI, I make ranch dressing and dip without using the pre-packaged mix. Just tons of dill weed, plus, garlic powder, onion powder, usually some chives, and a little paprika. So, if you like those flavors, you might try adding them in as the herbs/spices...should avoid the headaches which are probably caused by something else in the mix. Same deal to make dressing and veggie dip.

    Thanks, I will have to try that.

    Re: What's your favorite summer recipe?

    Buy an electric smoker. My husband has both both types, but the electric one is the regularly used version because you can literally just put the stuff in and walk away. He puts it out in our driveway, plugs it in in the garage. We have our office at home too, and it really works out well.

    He smokes whole chickens...those make GREAT chicken salad, chicken tacos or quesadillas...and it is super-cheap. The chicken tacos, we make with black beans, fresh sweet corn, the chicken, a little taco seasoning/salsa/guac, and jack cheese.

    Also, that smoker makes "no fail" ribs. Rub with a good seasoning mix, put them on for 5 hours at 250 (sauce and wrap about 3 hours through if you want).

    A pork shoulder takes longer (about 7-8 hours, IIRC). He uses that for sandwiches (topped with slaw of course); and a great rice and salsa verde concoction.

    Just something to think about since you are home during the day. You can fill up the smoker and have enough meat for many lunches and meals.

    Pellet grills/smokers are also set and forget, as long as the pellet hopper is full

    Difference between electric smokers and pellet grills is that the electric ones use electric for the heat, the smoke is only for flavor, the pellet grills use only wood pellets for both. Not going to bash electric smokers, since I have no experience, but my pellet grill is awesome, I use it about every weekend (would be more if I had more time to myself during the week).

    Mine is a Traeger, but Yoder Smokers is a brand I've seen too, and next on my list if I need to replace the Traeger.
