  • Recipes provide cool relief on hot summer days

    I hope you are surviving the heat. I also hope everyone has finally been able to get their gardens planted.

    Our tomato plants look like they have been beaten to death from all the wind and rains, but we are hoping they will come back to life with a vengeance and produce fantastic fruit.

    I have some very cool and refreshing recipes to give you, some I printed some time ago, so you will get a little reminder. Sometimes we forget about some of our old recipes, so it’s time to get them out and use them.
