I know what you’re thinking…it’s almost the beginning of fall—popsicles? Yes, popsicles! Why, because it’s still 90 something in Florida and will be until mid-December.

Summer fun always includes cooking with fresh fruits and vegetables. For me, raspberries are high on my list of delicious seasonal fruits. They’re right up there with strawberries and watermelon.

When I was little my mom grew raspberries in her garden (along with a lot of other fruits and vegetables). I used to love going out on summer mornings to pick berries to add to my cereal or a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Raspberries taste good in almost any dish, but Raspberry Skillet Cake is simple, easy, and delicious.
Raspberries always feel like such a delicacy with their delicate appearance and feel. Also, they go bad rather quickly—they only stay fresh for 2 or 3 days in the refrigerator. Raspberry Skillet Cake is a tasty way to enjoy your delicious summer raspberry bounty.

As Florida winters go, it’s been a cold one this year, and the past few days have definitely been a bit chilly. When it’s cold outside I need the three S’s: sweaters, scarves, and soup. Of course, I usually need these things year round because even when it’s very hot outside, my house and office tend to have the air conditioner turned down so low that I’m always cold no matter what. Easy Broccoli Soup is perfect whether it’s cold outside or just cold inside.
Easy Baked Onion Rings are a quick and simple snack to make when the craving for something crisp, crunchy, and sweet takes over. I like to eat them by themselves, but they’re also tasty as a side dish for soup or salad. They go great with my Easy Low-CalorieTomato Soup. Since they’re baked instead of fried they’re healthier but still feel indulgent and satisfying. Best of all, they’re one of those dishes that I almost always have the ingredients for on hand in my kitchen!
