No-bake Cookies

Type: 
Dessert

It's the height of summer, and no one wants the oven on, heating up the house for any length of time. But everyone wants delicious chocolaty cookies. No-bake cookies only require the stove to be on for a few moments to bring a few ingredients to a boil. They were a favorite when I was a kid.

A delicious macaroni salad for summer picnicking.

Grilled Pizza

Summer is the time for grilling and enjoying pizza in the great outdoors. Why not do both at the same time?

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Type: 
Side Dish

At first glance, zucchini doesn't seem like the best squash for making bread, maybe because it bears a passing resemblance to a cucumber, something I can't imagine chopping up as a bread ingredient. But as a summer squash zucchini makes just as good bread as pumpkin.
