  • 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.

    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.
