Remember my post about things I love about summer?  I have a few more things to add to my list.  What can I say, summer is a fabulous season.

Summer Lovin’:

  • Sandals
  • Lemonade
  • Crashing Waves
  • Watermelon
  • Grilled Corn on the Cob
  • Sprinklers
  • Blueberries
  • Lightening Bugs
  • Smoothies
  • Lanterns
  • Porches
  • Bubbles

A few weeks ago I made a great summertime treat called Applesauce Refresher.  I mixed raspberry jell-o with applesauce.  Such a refreshing snack to eat on these hot and humid summer days.  Then my mind starting going and I thought of other flavor combinations to try.  Thus I came up with the pineapple orange mixture.  Go ahead, let your mind wander into applesauce space and see what combos you can come up with that are just as delicious!

You could also make this with homemade applesauce.  Because that is so easy to make too!

Do you ever buy applesauce or make your own?


How many of you are looking forward to the fall when we can go pick apples at the orchard?

    I still love,love,love your post and try lots of your recipes. I’ve made 4-5 batches of the applesauce refesher already. It’s Weight Watcher friendly and my grandkids adore it…always expect me to have some in the fridge. I will be trying the blue jello with Colts football coming as well. I too, am in a pineapple/coconut “binge” Made home-made coconut macaroons on Sat.with some dipping in bittersweet chocolate (cold out of the fridge…think Mounds candy bars) and am also doing my annual summer alcohold experiment with a fresh pineapple infused vodka ( happy pineapples taking a swim in some vodka for 2 weeks)..guess you might say you’ve struck a chord! Please keep blogging…I adore it and you!
