It is hard to believe it’s already the middle of August. Since summer is coming to a close, I wanted to round up the best recipes of summer. And as much as I am looking forward to the flavors of fall, I’m still holding onto some sweet summer recipes for the next two weeks.
Peaches are one of my favorite fruits, but especially this time of the year when they are in season. As with most families, there are quite a few recipes that have been passed down through the years in mine. My southern great grandmother’s peach cake is definitely one of our favorites. My aunt and cousin were down in Virginia visiting my mom and dad this past weekend and we thought it was the perfect opportunity to make one of my great grandmother’s recipes: Southern Peach Cake.
The summer temperatures are heating up and I think it’s safe to say we all are searching for a cool and refreshing treat to beat the heat (see what I did there?!). Rosé is a summertime favorite and in the last few years, frosé (frozen rosé) has take the world by storm. I wanted to come up with a new and different way to enjoy this summer drink and then realized rosé popsicles would be the perfect warm weather treat.
Once the weather becomes warm, I start craving s’mores. There is something about the combination of s’mores in the summertime that I always look forward to. But, honestly, half the time I shy away from making them in the summer because it’s way too hot to stand by an open fire. The weather has been ridiculously hot here lately, so I thought I would try a spin on the traditional s’more. These frozen s’mores are a new favorite.
Happy Tuesday! Continuing the Fourth of July themed posts today with an easy, make-ahead dessert that’s perfectly patriotic. I’ve wanted to try my hand at icebox cakes for sometime now and thought that the mixture of berries and cream would make for a delicious summer treat. And with the added flag design out of berries on the top, it will make for a delicious way to end your Fourth of July celebrations next week.
Summer and key limes are the perfect warm weather combination. Key lime pie is one of my favorite desserts, especially on a warm day. It’s cool, light and refreshing making it the ideal summer dessert. Although, making a key lime pie every hot day is a little unrealistic — mainly because I would probably eat the entire thing! — but this key lime chex mix is a great way to taste this summer flavor with a lot less calories…and portion control!Read More
