July from the Archives

hot fudge sauce

I have been writing here on this site for five and a half years. Five and a half years of cooking and sharing recipes and ideas has made for a lot of content in the archives that often gets buried. So, I have decided to start doing a from the archives round up each month.

One Friday a month I will highlight posts from that same month over the last five years. Today since it is July, we will start with July from the archives.

grilled tomato pasta

In 2010 I shared about grilling tomatoes and how to use them in Grilled Tomato Pasta. Both are delicious and as soon as I have enough tomatoes coming from my garden, I will be grilling tomatoes. It is one of my favorite ways to eat tomatoes.

fresh salsa

Summertime means tomatoes from the garden at our house and Fresh Tomato Salsa is another delicious way to use them.


Between busy schedules and hot weather I have realized that meals need to be kept simple for my family during the summer. You can’t get much more simple than Grilled Nachos. My family loves them and I love how easy they are to make.

Bacon and Egg Salad Sandwiches

Another simple meal is Bacon and Egg Salad Sandwiches. Bacon and eggs together in a sandwich. YUM!

homemade-frappuccino-picturesIf you love coffee and love make at home versions, you will love Homemade Frappuccino. My husband’s office loves it when I make this up and bring it to them.

homemade tostada shells

Another homemade favorite that is easy to make is homemade tostada shells. These work great for Mexican Pizza.

chocolate angel food cake

If you have never had Chocolate Angel Food Cake you must make some. Delicious. Serve it with fresh summer berries and it is even better.

raspberry julius

Homemade Raspberry Julius anyone?! So easy to make at home and so much cheaper than buying one.

hot fudge sauce

Ice Cream is a classic summertime dessert. Serve it with hot fudge sauce and it will be even better.

I don’t know about you, but looking at all that has made me hungry. YUM!

  1. What a great list! I’ll have to try some of these!

  2. I love this idea! I liked seeing recipes from July that you posted in years past and I’m already looking forward to seeing what you have show us in August.

    • Thanks. I think it will be a fun way to highlight some things that often get lost in the archives. I am glad you are looking forward to it.
