Summer is definitely the season of vacations, road trips, and time spent with family. What about those of us who still have to work through the beautiful weeks of summer? One of the best ways to make the most of your summer, is to fill your plate with flavors of the season to make you feel like you’re on a vacation even when you aren’t. One of the best flavors of summer is that of a Piña Colada. Instead of just reaching for the drink, make some food that tastes like your favorite beverage as well for the whole family to enjoy.
