Summer officially begins June 20 ... but most of us already are enjoying outside warm weather activities. And looking forward to kicking back and relaxing!
Except for two of the "June is Dairy Month," recipes, no cooking is required in any of this month's offerings. In fact, you barely need to follow a recipe to be successful!
Enjoy! Happy summer!
Cook It Quick's Goal
Our goal is to make you "hungry for healthy food" by offering tips and delicious, quick-to-prepare, inexpensive recipes.
Preparing these recipes and using the tips will help you increase consumption of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. At the same time, you will reduce sodium, solid fats, and calories. Food safety tips are included.
