Nasello Family Summer Food Favorites

We love summer fun with family, and celebrating with food is at the heart of our festivities. Here are some of our favorite summertime recipes – Sarah’s favorites are the Walleye Cakes, Bacon Pancakes, and Easy Potato Salad, Gio loves the Flourless Chocolate Torte Bars, the Bruschetta, and the Roasted Red Peppers, and Tony is big on the Grilled Sirloin Roast, Grilled Bison, and Edamame Salad – to name a few. 🙂

Of course, it wouldn’t be a true feast without a little homemade Limoncello to finish the meal, would it? Not only does this Italian liqueur aid in digestion, but it will leave you feeling relaxed and mellow – in other words, you’ll feel like summer.

We hope you enjoy our list of favorites, and invite you to share your summer food memories with us in the Comments section below. Here’s to great food, good friends, and summer!

    Thanks for sharing all these recipes that sound amazing! Now the question is where to begin. I think I’ll start with Limoncello for attitude adjustment. Rachel Ray always talks about it being her mom’s favorite and I’ve always been curious to try it. Enjoy your summer!!

    1. Sarah Nasello

      I agree, Deb, start with limoncello. 🙂 Thanks so much for your comments and best wishes for a happy summer!

    Your willingness to share recipes is appreciated, Sarah–and Tony. Some of your family favorites are now some of our family favorites. Nice that a friendship that started with two little girls at Montessori continues. Happy summer!
