What'cha Workin' on Wednesday...Leads to Cooking Up Some Summer Fun

I have the exciting opportunity to share 
some of my favorite summertime recipes.

I will be preparing a refreshing cool beverage and a couple of side dishes 
every Thursday in Langs beautiful demonstration kitchen.

Meanwhile, in my own kitchen,
I am organizing the ingredients...
measuring...
chopping...
a little "Mise en Place"

Because the First Day of Summer is this Saturday,
I think my Golden Punch is a perfect choice.

Reminds me of sunshine!

And my absolute favorite go-to summer dessert 
is a no bake Chocolate Cheesecake.
Everyone knows that I don't like to use my oven when it's hot outside!

A fabulous finish to any meal.

I also plan to make an Herbed Pasta Salad,
using fresh basil from our garden patch.

My helper cat knows that she is not welcome in my kitchen,
so she was a lady of leisure on the couch.

Stop back for recipes and more photos...
or better yet, if you are a 'local' friend,
stop out at Langs this afternoon.

Take care,
~Natalie
