As the days get longer and our schedules fill with outdoor outings, barbecues and vacations, I find myself returning to my tried and true recipes to please the masses – the ones whose pages in my recipe book are stained and crumpled with years of enjoyment and satisfaction. This year though, I promised to mix it up a bit. Rather than relying on my old standbys (delicious as they may be) I sought out a few new kitchen creations to rejuvenate my tired summer-time repertoire. I’ll be sharing the findings here with you on the blog, all featuring our raw honeys, of course.

Consider this the first of the installment of #summerhoneylove!
