    Drink this in place of plain old water--it's so simple, delicious, healthy and refreshing! I've added fresh lemon verbena along with the cucumber and lemon, as it's so plentiful in my garden right now. But any of the sweet herbs such as lemon balm, mint, or scented geranium leaves (try rose!) would also be wonderful. Or try rosemary, basil, lemon thyme or whatever herb or combination you fancy! I keep a jug of this refreshing beverage in the fridge all summer long. Each batch lasts a day or two--just keep in the fridge, and top off with more bottled water to replenish what you drink. After a couple of days you'll need to make a fresh batch. Enjoy! Recipe is easily doubled or tripled, for events etc.

    Ginger switchel or Haymaker's Punch is a traditional nonalcoholic vinegar-based drink whose sourness was offset by a hefty dose of ginger and spices; it was named for the eighteenth-century farmers who drank it — literal haymakers. This ginger punch is flavored with lemon juice and sweetened with honey and molasses for a refreshing drink that quenches even the fiercest summer thirst. Includes chilling time. From Eating Well, July/August 2008.

    This is a delightful specialty sandwich originating in Nice, in the South of France. The Pan bagnat is a popular lunch time sandwich and also a great make ahead dish to pack in the picnic hamper along with fresh fruits, some cheese and a bottle of wine or sparkling lemonade. I hope you enjoy!

    This dessert-salad is a blast from the past! It's basically a rice pudding with crushed pineapple, whipped cream, and maraschino cherries. Serve glorified rice as a salad to accompany your holiday meal. It's also a great dish to bring to potlucks or church picnics. Enjoy! Adapted from "Mennonite Girls Can Cook".

    Recipe #453983

    These deviled eggs are very sophisticated, with zingy flavors that go well with contemporary food. One of the most addictive deviled eggs you'll ever taste! The secret ingredient is honey. Great for picnics, and also with drinks before a meal or for cocktail hour. Adapted from The San Francisco Examiner. Bay Area culinary expert Niloufer Ichaporta King, "one of the best cooks on the planet" found it in a book published in Bombay in the 1940s, under the mysterious heading "Italian Eggs". Not a classic Parsi recipe. Tips: It is important to let the eggs season a bit for the best flavor. Two hours will do it, but overnight is better. You can play with the seasonings, using more butter, lime, and/or jalapeno, as you like. Cook time is chill time.

    These are the BEST! I've been making this recipe for over 20 years now, and it's always a HIT with my family and friends! Great for BBQ's, potlucks, camping etc. Can be made in the oven or in the crockpot, and it freezes and reheats well.

    Wonderfully refreshing- serve it cold! Try this on a hot day served with a crusty loaf of French bread and glass of white wine, iced tea or lemonade. No cooking involved, if you use frozen cleaned and precooked shrimp. From The Collector's Cookbook Hearty Cold Dishes, Woman's Day Kitchen.

    Delicious, fresh tasting rice dish. The secret is to lightly brown the rice, and use fresh squeezed lemon juice. This is our family favorite Spanish Rice recipe. From my daughter. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

    Recipe #120697

    Nothing is more refreshing on a warm spring or summer day than a tall glass of iced tea, garnished with tiny sprigs of fresh mint and thin cucumber slices! Try 'Kentucky Colonel' or apple-and-citrus flavored mint varieties. Lovely! Adapted from Victoria Magazine.

    Recipe #430188

    This lovely salad would be wonderful on a bed of heirloom oak leaf lettuce with a bit of the vinaigrette drizzled over all. Recipe is an adapted one from California restauranteur and cookbook author Jesse Cool.

    Recipe #413468

    The Auld Alliance is a series of historic friendship treaties between Scotland and France, first signed in 1295, as well as a traditional cheese and whisky pâté. This is the ORIGINAL simple cheese cream recipe, straight from the historic Overscaig B&B in Sutherland. Delicious served as a cream pâté for the first course, or at the end of a meal as a savoury. From the book "A Feast of Scotland" by Janet Warren. Prep time includes chill time.

    Recipe #357814

    Hot roast beef, mature cheddar cheese, and a buttery horseradish-dijon sauce combine for this delectable baked sandwich combination that is served on soft Kaiser rolls!! A classic! Perfect for luncheons or entertaining, or packed into picnic lunches; great served warm, or at room temperature. Use as much roast beef and cheddar cheese as you like! Sandwiches are easily made up in advance and individually wrapped in foil, then refrigerated or frozen (use a freezer bag) for later use. Defrost overnight in the fridge, then bake as directed. Or, if frozen, bake at 300 F for about 1/2 hour until warm. Enjoy!

    A fruity chutney with a spicy kick! Goes great with roast meats or sausages, cheddar cheese, or as a spread for sandwiches. I like to make at the height of summer, when tomatoes are at their peak flavor. Lovely canned or frozen for gift giving.

    This tart is wonderful picnic, potluck or party food--it's great served warm, cold or at room temperature! Simple and very tasty, I often make this tart when fresh zucchini are in season. For ease of preparation, I've used a crescent roll crust, but you may use a regular shortcrust pastry if you wish. You will need a 9 or 10-inch tart tin with a removable bottom. P.S. If you don't have a tart or quiche pan, just use a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

    This syrup works with any combination of fruit; I especially like it with the tropicals. It is a light and refreshing dessert; the use of the vanilla bean makes these fruits seem exotic. Cook time includes chill time. From author and herbalist Susan Belsinger.

    An incredibly fantastic chicken salad, perfect for summertime entertaining! Also great tossed with cooked bow-tie pasta, which makes a more substantial meal. This is so delicious, one of my all-time favorite chicken salads!! Slightly adapted from a Paula Deen recipe.

    Melt-in-your-mouth baked croissant sandwiches of thinly sliced ham, Swiss cheese, and a delicious buttery Dijon and poppy-seed sauce! Perfect for luncheons or entertaining, or packed into picnic lunches; great served warm, or at room temperature. Use as much ham and cheese as you like! Sandwiches are easily made up in advance and individually wrapped in foil, then refrigerated or frozen (use a freezer bag) for later use. Defrost overnight in the fridge, then bake as directed. Or, if frozen, bake at 300 F for about 1/2 hour until warm. If using mini-rolls, you may place them in a buttered baking dish and bake for the specified amount of time (no need to individually wrap)--I've also microwaved them. Enjoy!
