Hold On To Summer With These Recipes

Hang on to summer with these delicious recipes.

Summer is slowly winding down. Some of us just don’t want it to go, while others are more than ready for pumpkin all the time. But if you’re one of those trying to hold onto summer with all you have – I’ve rounded up a few recipes to get you through the next few weeks with some flavorful cooking.

Try them out and let me know what you think!

It’s still plenty hot out, even when fall starts lurking around the corner. Nancy of Skinny Kitchen has a Gazpacho recipe that both, looks and sounds just perfect for when you’re in the mood for soup but don’t want to have to stand over the hot stove for too long.

This perfect Summertime BLT Sandwich from Susan of That Susan Williams looks so amazing. I don’t even eat bacon (I know, y’all. Some of you are straight-out GASPING out loud right now.) and I’m eyeing it for my end-of-summer menu. Just look. See?

And if you’re really looking to avoid cooking, I recently shared this No-Cook Overnight Oats recipe for you to enjoy. Trust me on this one. It might seem weird, because you’ve always cooked your oatmeal, or at least prepped it over the stove (or, let’s be honest, in the microwave), but this is just as good – and just as customizable.

This sweet and delicious Homemade Strawberry Pie from Caryn of The Midlife Guru looks amazing. And what better ingredient to hang on to summer with than strawberries?

And don’t forget that smoothies are perfect no matter what the season. While you might opt for them in warmer temps, giving them a try when it’s cooler is totally permitted. So this round-up of 13 Smoothies is perfect for you. Be sure and bookmark it or pin it – ASAP!

We’ve spotlighted this Greek Chicken Pita recipe from Gaye of Calm. Healthy. Sexy. and it looks phenomenal. No reason you have to stop making this once the weather cools a bit.

These simple Shrimp Tacos from Kate of My Mommy Brain is one that’s super simple and quick to put together. The burst of flavor will surely help you hold onto summer! And honestly, avocado anything is perfect any time of the year.

And FINE. If you honestly cannot wait for fall – well – head on over to my post of 22 Incredible Soups and make sure you save it for the coming months. It’s a resource you won’t want to lose. I’m particularly fond of the crockpot corn chowder (it’s my own!).

Happy prepping, cooking, and, most of all – eating!
