Labor Day Sides and Desserts

By Sandy Hu
The latest from Inside Special Fork

Special Fork’s summer vacation comes to an end next Tuesday. After Labor Day, all bloggers will be back with more delicious recipes and food ideas to fit the 30-minute prep limit that we’ve set for ourselves, to ensure that no recipe is too time-consuming for busy home cooks.

Meanwhile, I wanted to leave you with a last look back at recipes from previous blog posts. This week, I’m showcasing side dishes for your Labor Day get-together. You’ll find recipes for salads, salsas and desserts for your end-of-summer enjoyment on a special Pinterest board.

To give you a preview of the collection, I’m featuring Cardamom Shortbread Cookies, a photo by Ben Mims. His accompanying recipe and blog post, along with other easy recipes for your Labor Day menu, are pinned to our Labor Day Sides Pinterest board.

In our family, Labor Day grilling also includes a gift exchange. We’ve already drawn names for our Labor Day gift to each other, a wacky family tradition started when Chris was in elementary school.

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend and see you back at Special Fork on Tuesday, when Ben kicks off the week with a new post for cooking newbies.
