The first week in September has been a chilly one here in Kansas City, making summer feel like a distant memory.

If I’m being honest, I am so excited for fall; it’s truly my favorite season.

However, there are those sweet summertime things I am going to miss and have already begun to reminisce about.

The longer days, warm breezy air, weekends poolside and those summer recipes that just don’t have the same “wow factor” outside of the warmer months. 

One of those recipes for me is this sweet and tangy Strawberry Spritzer!

Cherry Stuffed Tomatoes

FFES STUFFED CHERRY TOMATOES ORIGINAL1

My husband and I try to eat meatless at least two nights a week. Well, let me rephrase this ... I try to make my husband eat meatless at least two nights a week. I could easily be a vegetarian but my carnivorous husband isn’t all aboard that train yet, so we compromise. Consequently, I love to take meatless dishes to any get-together we are attending. For me, it’s a win-win. I bring a meatless option for myself and those who also enjoy meatless dishes while introducing the room to meatless recipes and how amazingly delicious they can be.

Let’s set the scene. You push the doorbell on a familiar, yet intriguing house. Your nose perks up because you can faintly smell a scent of spice and sweetness coming from the kitchen. You make your way to the oversized table and every step closer you feel your senses go into overload from the aromas. Your taste buds start to wake up with excitement and you find yourself salivating in anticipation for the food that is about to be served. Then, Voila! You finally touch the fork to your mouth and every morsel is bursting with deliciousness. This is what I love about cooking!
