End-of-Summer Recipes

As Summer Comes To An End…

End-of-Summer Recipes!

With the scent of newly sharpened pencils floating on the breeze, we know that the last days of summer are upon us. Even though the weather may still be warm and wonderful, the kids are either already back in school or headed there soon. So, I thought it would be nice to share a few Pinterest Pins for End-of-Summer Recipes.

I hope you enjoy!


Lavender Lemonade … How refreshing! What an incredibly nice way to cool down and relax. This PIN is from Centsational Girl, check out the Recipe Here.
UPDATE: If you’re having trouble with Centsational Girl’s network, try Kelly at Eat Yourself Skinny. She has this lovely Recipe too! (Centsational Girl’s recipe used 3/4 cup sugar and no agave or honey. Can be made with frozen lemonade.)


End-of-Summer Cobb Salad … What a great idea to add fresh fruit to a Cobb Salad. I love it! Check out This Recipe PINNED from PaleOMG.


The Best Ever End-of-Summer Berry Cobbler … Yum-O! Serve with the melty lusciousness of vanilla ice cream, and you are in heaven. Find this PIN from Willow Bird Baking and the Recipe Here.


21 Great End-of-Summer Recipes … This fun compilation of culinary goodness even includes a super cool Salt-Dough Starfish! This PIN came from Tatertots & Jello. Peruse the 21 Recipes Here.

Do you have any favorite Summer Pinterest Pins?
