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...
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.
