Mom Cooks: Summer Living Recipes

Categories: Cooking, Food, summer living


Today I thought I would do something a little bit different. I have bookmarked a few recipes over the past week that sound so good, and so easy that I thought I would share the love today and point you in their direction. I haven’t made any of these myself yet, but they have all made my short list. If you don’t have a short list, start one with these.

The first three are perfect summer recipes. Nothing to warm up your house and make you get all sweaty before serving the meal. The last one is a good anytime of year meal. And you could use those bags of frozen vegetables to hold to the back of your neck and cool you off while you are standing at the stove. Or put them on top of your head, like a cooling hat. Not that I do that.

CityMama posted a recipe for Vegan Coconut-Chocolate Ice Cream. Oh sorry, I think I just fainted from the sheer unparalleled deliciousness of it. I don’t have an ice cream maker so we are going to use the ziploc bag method to make this tomorrow.

Foodmomiac posted a recipe for Chicken Salad that is as simple as it is delicious.

101 Cookbooks has a fabulous Broccoli Pesto and Fusilli Pasta recipe. Pasta is always an easy meal and I am constantly on the look out for new ways to dress it up.

Belinda of Ninja Poodles fame, posted a recipe on her other blog she called Some Kinda Crazy Chicken and Rice Thing that sounded yummy and easily adaptable. A one skillet type of meal made from things you probably already have in your freezer.

I’ll be back on Thursday with my own kinda crazy chicken recipe. So fire up your grill, or at least make sure your propane tank is full. You will be wanting to make this one.

  • Just want to attest that I’ve already made the Chicken Salad from Foodmomiac and it was great!

  • I thought of you when I was in the liquor store last week. FYI - They now have gluten free beer.
