Summer is the perfect time to enjoy activities such as cooking and baking that are difficult to do during the busy school year. One of my favorite places to find new recipes is Pinterest. Pinterest provides cute, simple recipes that are always accompanied by enticing photos. I have provided a list of 10 recipes found on Pinterest to try this summer. Don’t stop when you try some of my personal picks for summer recipes, because Pinterest has thousands more to explore.
It’s no secret that I love Mexican food. When I saw this recipe I knew that I had to try it. This salad is light and perfect for summer. It only has 323 calories and takes 10 minutes to prepare.
These raspberry sorbet lemon bowls are adorable. This is the perfect dessert for a summer party. The sorbet is refreshing and using lemons as bowls is a cute and innovative way to serve the sorbet.
Cheesecake is my favorite dessert. Make this chilled recipe to cool off on a hot summer day. Plus, a no-bake recipe give less opportunity for mistakes for anyone new to baking.
I had to include some refreshing drinks on this list. I have always struggled with making my own lemonade, so I am looking forward to giving this recipe a try. If you are trying to keep a healthy diet, tweak the amount of sugar in these recipes.
There is no denying that this recipe sounds and looks absolutely delicious. This shrimp recipe is ideal for an appetizer or as part of the main course. Be creative with the presentation. The recipe gives several alternatives for the way the shrimp is served.
These cupcakes are the cutest things that I have ever seen. The recipe says that the kids will love making these cupcakes. I’m not sure if I’m a kid or a college student because I can’t wait to make these cupcakes during a fun girl's day.
I found this recipe to be very unique. I have recently started incorporating quinoa into my diet and these rolls are something that I haven’t seen before. This recipe will likely be hit or miss, but don’t be scared to give it a try.
This recipe is a great twist on the typical chicken salad wrap that you might have for lunch. I love the way fruit, which isn't traditionally found in a wrap, is incorporated.
Making your own pizza is fun. Instead of ordering pizza on a Friday night, I like to try different pizza recipes to keep things interesting. The asparagus pesto pizza is unique and doesn’t seem extremely unhealthy. The recipe even suggests wine pairings for those of you who are 21.
These frozen strawberries covered in yogurt are a delicious treat. We occasionally make these at work, and I admit that they are addicting. Luckily, they are nutritious too.
