A chance meeting at a dive shop.  Who would’ve thought that when Aubrey walked into the dive shop that day she would meet her future husband?  In an age where most of the couples I talk to meet online in some way shape or form, I love hearing a classic “we bumped into each other totally accidentally” story.  If you’ve ever seen the movie The Holiday you’ll know what I mean when I say, “That was some meet cute!”

When I first met Aubrey & Steve for their engagement session the thing I noticed immediately was that Aubrey was just bursting with excitement and happiness and that Steve would grin from ear to ear every time he looked at her.  I knew that their wedding day would be filled with smiles and laughter and I’m thrilled to say that it was all of that and more. ;-)

Aubrey fell in love with the grounds at Alexander Homestead, so our goal was to capture as much of that beautiful scenery as possible on their wedding day!

Just before the ceremony I turned around and saw Aubrey’s parents sitting alone waiting for everything to begin.  My heart smiled so big, and there’s still so much I love about this photo.

This past fall I posted my top 10 favorite fall recipes, so I thought it’d also be fun so spread the food love again and share some of my favorite summer recipes.  We love to cook, so this list is constantly changing, but here are our top 10 favorite spring/summer recipes as it stands right now.

10. Southwest Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing – We love the little kick this salad has, and the dressing is fantastic!

9. BLT Spring Rolls – I started making these for lunch a few weeks ago and fell in love.  Very light, and super tasty.

8. Thai Veggie Burgers with Peanut Sauce – The peanut sauce totally makes these burgers (well, that and the amazing homemade buns).  If you need to go store-bought with your buns, get the french hamburger buns in the deli – awesome!

7. Crockpot Pork Chops with Creamy Herb Sauce – This probably sounds like a much heavier meal than it is, but we serve these chops with green peas and it’s just perfect.  One suggestion though – mix your corn starch with 2 T of water and make a little starch slurry and then pour it into your gravy.  Just dumping the corn starch directly into the gravy will give you clumps of corn starch.  I tried it her way the first time and it was an epic fail.  Made the slurry the 2nd time and it was perfection.  We also just buy boneless pork chops and they turn out great.

6. Pioneer Woman’s Black Bean Burgers – Ree suggests making these in a cast iron skillet which we love, but they are also great on the grill in the summer time.  Best Black Bean burger I’ve ever eaten, no joke.  In addition to being a great burger on a bun, they are also awesome without the bun served with creamy sautéed mushrooms and a slice of swiss cheese.

5. Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic – Brussels Sprouts get such a bad reputation, and we have no idea why.  It wasn’t a vegetable that either of us grew up eating, but today we can’t get enough of it.  Chris loves balsamic anything, and I love roasting veggies (you could also grill these), and the combination is just awesome.  No official recipe for these – we just cut the brussels sprouts in half length-wise and toss with some olive oil, salt and pepper.  Pop them in the oven on 400 for about 25-30 minutes and when they come out, toss in balsamic to taste.  Crazy good.

4. Hot & Spicy Grilled Pork Chops – Definitely our favorite grilled pork chop.

3. Grilled Pizza – Easily one of our favorite things to put on the grill!

2. Green Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette – The inspiration for this salad came from this post on Annies-Eats, but I basically totally did something else. ;-)  I wanted a raspberry vinaigrette, so I used this recipe.  In my salad I put walnuts, goat cheese, raspberries, blueberries and tomatoes.  It’s like summer on a plate!

1.  Grilled Chicken Fajita Chopped Salad – We change this one up quite a bit.  One thing we LOVE is the marinade for the chicken – we follow that to the letter and it’s YUM-O.  For the salad, I don’t like my salad warm/grilled, so we don’t grill any of the lettuce, etc.  We use romaine and then top it with some tomatoes, black beans, cucumbers and queso fresco.  The dressing is fantastic, don’t change a thing there.
