As you know, we are building a new deck. This means quick and easy recipes for supper! Of course this means no "new" recipes for a couple of weeks, but never fear, I dug out some old Kraft Food & Family Magazines, and I'm gonna drum up some yummy and refreshing ideas for Memorial Day, and Summer in general over the next week or two or until we get this deck finished! Some of these I have tried, and some I have not, so I will put an asterisk (*) next to the ones I have tried. Although, I have never tried anything I didn't like out of these magazines, so I am sure they are all yummolicious! I hope you enjoy these recipes, feel free to comment on the ones you try, I like to hear what you think!
