5 recipes to give from Lara Katsov

Summer is usually associated with holiday and recreation. Someone goes to the sea - lying under a palm tree, and someone likes to spend time at the cottage with family and friends, proud of their harvest. I love spending time outdoors and I really enjoy cooking of the products, which raised my close friend in the country in the Vladimir region. You go out, to thwart what you need, and you go to cook. No nitrates, pesticides and excitement for their own health. Conversations and laughter in the kitchen, your favorite TV series on the "Home", sitting up in the morning ... In short, a fairy tale.

Therefore, the parallel preparation of breakfast, lunch and dinner does not take all my time and energy, but rather a pleasure. And when friends gather on the veranda, smacked his lips and praise, then I'm on cloud nine.

Meet my favorite summer recipes!
