Summer Barbecue Recipes

With barbecue season finally arriving, I wanted to share some of my favorite recipes with all of you. Keep reading if you want to see a typical summer barbecue for my family!

Main Dishes

I try keep the meats and main dishes more on the lean and healthy side when I can. We usually prepare lean hamburger patties with barbecue sauce, turkey hot dogs, and baked barbecue chicken. 

Side Dishes

Some of our favorites are simple to prepare and tend to pair well with the main dish options. On this day we served macaroni and cheese with a cheddar sauce, mashed potatoes, and steamed glazed carrots.


This is cherry limeade that can easily be made either with or without alcohol. All you need are frozen cherries, sugar, fresh lime juice, and water. It is light and very refreshing.


The perfect citrus blend dessert. This is a fresh lemon cheesecake with a strawberry flavored crust.
