Hey, y’all. Welcome back to my kitchen! When it’s hot like this, we all need something cool to bring down the temperature. This month, I’m sharing a collection of chilled recipes. Not only will they keep your house cool, they’ll keep you cool, as well.
First up is a delicious No-Bake Lemonade Pie guaranteed to refresh you. I’ve been fiddling with this type of pie for years, and I think I’ve finally gotten it down to an easy, no-fail recipe. It’s guaranteed to be light, fluffy and a little tart. This is one of my favorite summertime desserts. I hope you’ll enjoy it — not only because it’s delicious but because it’s easy, too!
We can’t eat just dessert all the time, so I love this Apple Pecan Salad with homemade Apple Cider Vinaigrette. This is a summer standard at my house since we usually have all the ingredients on hand. I like to make a big batch of candied pecans and whip up the vinaigrette on the weekends so I can throw it together throughout the week. Even though this recipe calls for you to cook the pecans, you can always grab a bag of candied pecans at the grocery store and skip that step.
This month, we’re sharing a Neighbors vault recipe from Carolyn Hill of Talladega County. Her Frozen Fruit Salad is a genius way to treat yourself at the end of a long, hot day. The Hill family has been enjoying this for years, and we are grateful to take up the tradition in our home, too! This recipe was originally shared in the March 2006 Neighbors.
Summer is in full swing at the Little house, and we’re enjoying sunshine, gardening and weekends visiting with family. I hope these recipes will help make your summer all the sweeter — and cooler — too!
