Hi guys! I’m back from the beach and feeling incredibly rested and excited to be rocking a nice beachy glow. I’ll be sharing photos from the trip later this week but in the mean time, wanted to pull together a few recipe ideas for you for Labor Day. I mean, it’s all about the eating, isn’t it?

Hosting a brunch? I’d definitely make some of Ina’s Blueberry Coffee Cake, paired with this Asparagus and Shiitake Mushroom Quiche, and washed down with my killer iced coffee. Yum!

Having friends for a midday feast? Your guests will go gaga for these spicy Fried Green Tomato BLTs. You could make mini ones and then serve them alongside a pile of these Summer Squash and Feta Cakes (you can make them ahead!). Serve a salad of mixed greens with my irresistible Balsamic Vinaigrette, and polish off the meal with some Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Hosting an afternoon or evening BBQ? These Buttermilk Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches would be insane on the grill. Serve this Roasted Tomato Panzanella on the side and round out the meal with some Oreo Lover’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream or Brown Butter Rice Crispy Treats if you’re without an ice cream maker.

Enjoy the long weekend guys, see you on Tuesday! xx Clara
