summer no cook recipes

Simple No Need to Cook Meals (as I hang on to the last vestiges of summer)

Greens tomato basil garlic bread crumbs and pasta

Lazy Days of Summer? Still? Yes, please.

Although my family may tell you that my idea of No-Cook meals this summer has mostly relied on prepared food from Whole Foods, I have actually made some of my No Cook Meals. Look out, Family! I may continue this trend/lifestyle/into our fall if the weather holds or at least until my Mother-in-law visits. So here are some links to places with good no-cook foods (you can put together a nice dinner from Trader Joe’s, too.

From Real Simple – 25 No Cook Recipes and a bunch of Fake It Don’t Make it recipes, too.

cooking light capability momEating Well has a great list of No Cook Recipes, too. Both of these resources also list the nutritional information, in case you need to know.

Entertaining? Still don’t want to cook? Me, either. Bon Appetit has a nice slideshow of good (a bit fancier) recipes, too.

Cooking Light has my favorites entitled  Ta-Dah!

Martha Stewart has a great selection of No-Cook Recipes, of course. Thank you, Martha!

I have cooked – really – just not a lot. The above photo is of the making of the Greens Pasta dish that everyone loves. Easy, too. Boiling water is not technically cooking, or so I hear.
