During the summer months, I try to do as little cooking as possible. Many of the items on this sampler platter can be made and refrigerated ahead of time, which makes assembly a simple and delicious snap.
We are nearing the triple digits this summer in Indiana. It’s hot, it’s humid, and the last thing I want to do is actually turn my oven on to bake anything. Thankfully this no-bake banana pudding recipe hits the spot.
If there is one temptation I can’t resist, it’s donuts. Specifically: blueberry cake donuts. Unfortunately, they can be hard to find. Thankfully, this slightly healthier recipe hits the spot.
This simple stir-fry gets a lot of flavor from a few ingredients that are typically on sale during the summer months. The heat level can be dialed up or down to suit your tastes; although people who (unfortunately) think cilantro tastes like soap should probably steer clear!
I am a fan of big lemon flavor, and this bread has plenty of it. It is best made with fresh juice and berries at the height of summer, but bottled lemon juice and (thawed) frozen berries could do in a pinch if you find yourself yearning for those seasonal flavors.
