Vacation Recipes: 5 Easy Treats to Make in Your Cottage Kitchen

For plenty of us, vacation is a chance to relinquish the oven mitt and let somebody else do the cooking. From pancakes to lobster to wood-fired pizza and ice cream, Ogunquit restaurants can cover any meal you like. Still, with a full kitchen in your cottage and the view from its screened-in porch, it can be pretty tempting to whip something up right here at The Dunes. These vacation recipes are quick and easy — each requires no more than six ingredients — perfect for rounding out a long day at Ogunquit Beach.
