I had my first sip of Mountain Dew at our family’s cottage during summer vacation. Who hasn’t melted marshmallows, made smores, roasted hot dogs or cooked burgers on the grill during those warm sun-filled months? It was always a big treat when mom made breakfast for dinner. This book captures the flavors and smells of summer vacation cooking. Some lighter meals, some based on farmer’s market shopping, some attached with just good memories. The first edition of this book was called the Summer Cottage Cookbook. I’ve added dozens of new recipes to create a second edition of a summer cookbook. The cover photo is a thank you to Bruce Brown. He was the director of “Endless Summer,” a movie that captured the spirit of summer like no other film.
