Snapshots of Summer

Snapshots of Summer

This summer has been filled with culinary delights! I’ve traveled all over central Ohio eating and drinking my way through some awesome menus. I’ve also enjoyed snagging some fresh and local produce, and utilizing these items in my cooking. Below, you will find a glimpse at some of my most memorable shots from my warm weather adventures. I can’t wait to see wait the remaining days of summer bring!
