Summer Entertaining Series: Summer Recipes by Adventures of Brad & Kendra

As part of my Summer Entertaining Series I’ve asked several of my favorite bloggers to share tips, parties, recipes, and ideas for great Summer parties. Today I’ve got one of my FAVORITE bloggers’ sharing her favorite Summer recipes. Please welcome Kendra from Adventures of Brad & Kendra to A Well Crafted Party! 

Hi everybody, I’m Kendra from Adventures of Brad & Kendra. Hopefully Jenni is having an awesome vacation and getting some much needed relaxation. Over on my blog I write about the happenings of my life ranging from recipes, DIY projects, crafts and other adventures life throws our way. My husband and I have been married for almost 7 years and currently reside just outside Seattle. In addition to my blog and my day job of being an Electrical Engineer I run the Etsy shop Simply {Darr}ling where I sell items such as scrabble necklaces, FOE hair ties, scarves, coffee cozies, and baby items.

My Favorite Summer Recipes:

Here in Seattle, summer is the perfect time for outdoor entertaining. We finally get some sunny and dry weather about mid July and it stays light out until late at night. One dish that is perfect for summer parties is Pasta & Cucumber Salad. We make this throughout the year but especially during the summer when all the produce is fresh and local.

A summer soiree wouldn’t be complete without a signature cocktail. Some examples of recipes I like to have at my parties are Glass Full of Sunshine and Strawberry Lemon Drops. I also tend to make random mixes of whatever I happen to have in my pantry (generally it is juice + alcohol + something fizzy) and pretty much always works!

Welcome to summer everybody! I’d love to get to know all of you more so come say hi on Twitter, Facebook or the blog!
