Summer Recipe Round-Up

It’s that wonderful time of year when we are all grilling and pot-lucking, and always looking for some new inspiration.  Here are a few of my recent summer faves — I dare you to try to share!  They are all really easy and fast (the only way I cook and bake!).  Click on the links for the recipes.

Fail Proof App: Bobby’s Pimento Cheese

This recipe is from one of Paula Deen’s sons, Bobby.  I love serving it with water crackers and pita chips.  Delish.

So Yummy Salad: Pizza Panzanella Salad

Salad with pizza crust?  Yes please.

Mouth-Watering Main Dishes:

Grilled Turkey Burgers with Goat Cheese Spread

This is a Cooking Light recipe, so you can eat 2 and not feel so bad!  The burgers grill up so tender and moist — they are divine!

Chipotle Sloppy Joes

Although this isn’t made on the grill, it’s easy and super yummy.  We actually eat it on hot dog buns — it’s less sloppy and equally as tasty!

Delish Desserts: Frozen Lemonade Pie

One of my BFFs recommended this pie for our Memorial Day barbeque and it was a smashing hit.   It is amazingly easy, refreshing and fabulous.  You must try this!

Banana Split Cake

A to-die-for Paula Deen dessert!  I top this one with maraschino cherries and chocolate sauce.

What are your go-to summer recipes?

Crazy Sexy Good

Last night we made this cake:

named Better Than Sex from Paula Deen’s Savannah Country Cookbook (recipe pretty much like this one).  Lemme tell ya, it almost lives up to its name.

P.S. Here is another variation by Paula on the same theme with pineapple and coconut.
