What’s Cooking in May

It’s May, which means Memorial Day weekend and another sizzling summer are just around the corner. If you’d like to get cooking for yourself or host friends and family at your Brookfield home, here are some tasty recipes to try.

As temperatures rise, cucumbers always keep their cool. According to TexasFarmersMarket.com, cucumbers are in season now. This cucumber and tomato salad, which includes lip-smacking vinegar and red onions, makes a great indoor snack or side for outdoor grilling. Speaking of grilling …

Nothing is more Texas than barbecuing. Also very Texas: Dr Pepper. Break out the wet-naps for these sticky, spicy and sweet Dr Pepper ribs. (Cheesy side note: The recipe’s author has also written a book on another Texas staple: queso.)

Staying on the grill, how about some amaizing grilled Mexican street corn?

To wet your whistle, mix up a refreshing Blueberry-Bay Shrub, Blackberry Bounce or Poteet Punch cocktail.

There’s always room for dessert, especially if it’s strawberry cobbler.

These recipes are just a start to filling up the rest of May and summer with good cooking and great times.
