Even more perfect -- Pounders beach

Happy summertime!  It has been hot hot hot here – too hot to do much of anything besides lie around on the couch complaining about the heat.  I decided we needed to get the kids out of the house Saturday, so we made a trip to the library and then discovered a local ice cream parlor that  makes its own fresh fruit frozen yogurt.  I also discovered the joys of raspados – shaved ice layered with fresh fruits and condensed milk – SO refreshing on a hot day!  It’s fortunately cooling down going into the fourth of July, so we’ll be able to get our celebration on!  If you’re planning for parties this week or next weekend, here are some of my favorite summer recipes to share!
