Fresh Squeezed Lemonade
I recently started reading She Knows Food and Recipes. She has some fabulous recipes for summer lemonade and lemon desserts. To me, lemons are summer. Even though we are not officially in "summer," our temperatures are! Today we topped off at 92 degrees and are expected to hit 97 degrees tomorrow! If this is any indication of what August will be like in the south, we are in for it.
The last couple of days have been so hot that I have already started searching the Internet for new summer salads and desserts.
Lemon Thyme Bars
These Lemon Thyme Bars are on my list to try. They sound delicious. Even though I am often intimidated by Giada's recipes, these seem be something I could handle.
After being outside in the heat, my desire to cook seems to vanish.
Last year we snacked on Ree's cucumber sandwiches many times. These are super easy and ridiculously yummy!
I am looking forward to trying these, too.
Grilled Chicken and Pineapple Quesadillas
This recipe is also by Ree. The ingredients are simple, but the combination sounds fantastic.
What are your favorite things to "cook" in the summer?
