52 Late Summer Recipes

Summers are winding up and we are at door steps of Fall. I find this time perfect to enjoy recipes using Late Summer Produce. 

When I sat down to pick Summer Recipes you can still enjoy while summer produce lasts in Farmer's Market... I forced myself to stop at amazing 52. I have so many tasty recipes you can try, choice was really hard. 

While I concentrated mostly on corn, zucchini, tomato, eggplant for this collection.. I could not resist adding few lite Squash recipes. I'm sure you'll agree, even early September stores are full of all kind of squash. It is hard to come home without a few. 

I hope you will enjoy making these recipes as much as I have enjoyed picking these for you.

Happy Cooking!
