The Month in Review - August 2013

OK, before we get started, can one of you please explain to me where the summer went?  I know time flies when you're having fun but I swear this summer was shorter than others.

The Month in Review  -  August 2013

But, speaking of fun, August was pretty terrific.  There was a cherry challenge that resulted in a few amazing new recipes, some incredibly talented guest posters and our annual summer vacation in gorgeous Maine.  I'm sad to see summer go but we're saying goodbye in style this weekend with a final grill fest and Labor Day party.  Now let's take a look back at the tasty happenings over the past month.  Enjoy!
