Pinterest is great for inspiration to answer, “What should I make for X occasion?” But just as quickly as it can suck you in for hours, it can also deliver a speedy, often sharp kick to your ego when you try to recreate that gorgeous rose-petal-covered chocolate lava cake and wind up with something that looks like a pile of...you know. And who wants to eat that?
Next time you want to create something that impresses both in taste and presentation (and is pretty healthy to boot), try one of these summer recipes. While some take a little more work than others, anyone can make every one of them. Pinning a food porn shot before you dig in is totally up to you.
