Another month has quickly gone by and now it's time to highlight one special lady as part of the Secret Recipe Club. Today it's an honor to be highlighting Karen from Lavender and Lovage. Karen splits her time between North Yorkshire and southwest France and has the most amazing landscape and food photography on her site. Just a warning: the photographs on her site will keep you there for hours.
This time of year the garden begins to overflow and the dog days of summer are in full swing. So of course I gravitated towards the garden and salad recipes. I was also in a Jane Eyre type mood. Just returning from the Shakespeare Festival where my sister in laws and I spent the afternoon watching the girly favorite "Sense and Sensibility" on stage made me crave the beautiful English countryside and food.
We could only highlight one recipe today, but these others also caught our eye as great recipes that really utilize your overflowing summer garden vegetables:
Today we're featuring her bacon wrapped chicken with goat's cheese and basil. It was delicious and great as a Sunday night dinner for friends and family who came over.
