Fave Summer Recipes

I know my blog is mainly about writing but our characters have to eat, right? And one of my characters is a chef so I love to discover interesting recipes that she can create. Below is my new, favorite burger: Green Pepper Chili Burgers 2 lbs. lean ground beef 1/2-3/4 white onion (chopped) 1/2 green pepper (chopped) 3-4 T. chili sauce Mix all together in a bowl, make patties, and grill. Yum! These are great. Here's one more: Chocolate Mint Ice Cream Pie 1 carton softened chocolate mint ice cream (I use the sugar-free Splenda kind) 1 Oreo pie crust Spoon softened ice cream into pie crust. Smooth top with a spoon and freeze. Thaw about five minutes before serving. Everyone loves this pie and always thinks it's grasshopper pie. If they only knew how easy it is! You can substitute your favorite ice cream and use a graham cracker crust as well. Do you have an easy peasy summer recipe you'd like to share?


  1. Here's on of my specialties.

    Brown Hamburger
    Add one Box of any Hamburger Helper.
    Follow recipe on box.
    Let simmer.

    It's so easy, an idiot can do it!

  2. Here's my favorite summer salad. Easy to make, very few ingredients.

    Thinly sliced low fat mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced cucumbers, thinly sliced red onion, cherry tomatoes, lots of fresh basil and Trader Joe's brand basalmic viniagrette. Very good. A little black pepper too.

    Plated individually to your liking.

  3. Shirley, you're a hoot. What a chef. ha

    JarieLyn, that salad sounds great. I'll have to try it. My husband would love it. We don't have a Trader Joe's here but I'm sure I can find it online.
