Seasonal Saturday and Fresh Food Friday!

So many wonderful food bloggers, so many great recipes, and so little time to prepare all of them . . . which one will you share today?  Each and every week, I’m so amazed at the passion for and talent in cooking that this community of bloggers brings together!

The abundance of our gardens and local farms is just amazing this July.  Everyone appears to be enjoying seasonal cooking, baking, grilling, freezing, and canning.  We’re so busy, busy, busy doing what we love and sharing that love through our cooking for those whom we care the most about.

Welcome to anyone new to this food/garden get-together or if you are a regular participant.  Both new and returning bloggers are featured each week.  And here are 8 super recipes for you to enjoy.  There weren’t any garden posts shared to feature.

The Featured Posts from last week are:

Marguerite from Cajun Delights shared this mouthwatering and delectable Blueberry Bread Pudding with Lemon Sauce.  Don’t you just feel the Bayou?

Cathy of Wives with Knive’s Chicken Vesuvio – - Chicago Style can’t be resisted with this chicken in a garlic and wine sauce studded with fresh peas.  Yum-mo!

MM from Ms. Enplace shared these luscious Amaretto Figs.  How lucky is she to have fresh figs . . . and adding amaretto to figs is food for royalty!

Small, but packed full of citrus flavor, these Key Lime Pies were shared by Kirsten at The Sweet Swiper. Welcome!

Welcome to Kristi from Veggie Converter 365, who shared this over-the-top, summer-fresh Lemon Ricotta Pound Cake with Peach Topping.

Dressed Up Potato Salad really possesses the “wow” factor in this beautiful presentation, thanks to Sheryl at Lady Behind The Curtain.

And just how gorgeous is this Tomato Tart With Gruyere that was shared by Lizzy from That Skinny Chick Can Bake!!  So gorgeous, Lizzy!  And welcome to one of my own home-town girls!

The talent of Amy at “u try it”, shines through with her Meyer Lemon Curd with Vanilla Sugar.  This could be used in so many cakes and more!

All of the shared recipes were so tempting and picture-perfect.  Many thanks for linking up each week.  You are truly appreciated!

    Thanks so much for hosting! I shared a nourishing Peach Ice Cream recipe with a dairy-free option. Summer peaches are a favorite in my house. We look forward to making this simple peach ice cream every summer. (I’m not sure why it posted 2 times! Yikes, how do I remove the one post, or can I? I tried to find where to contact, but I couldn’t. Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance!)
