Zucchini Recipes:

Did you know zucchini makes the best, moist baked goods? This chocolate zucchini bread recipe is to die for. Oh and chocolate cake made with zucchini? Yes, ma’am! Your dreams have come true. Oh and don’t sleep on zucchini noodles.

Blueberry Recipes:

One of my most popular recipes on Modern Honey is my blueberry cobbler recipe perfect for fresh blueberry season. My lemon blueberry cake is a crowd favorite!

Raspberry Recipes:

One of my favorite ways to use fresh raspberries is to bake them in a perfect lemon raspberry cake with cream cheese frosting. If you are looking for a frozen treat — check out my creamy raspberry cheesecake bars with a graham cracker crust. My chocolate berry lovers need to make my chocolate raspberry cake.

Summer Salad Recipes:

When you don’t want to crank up the oven, salads are your answer in the summer. Many of these salad recipes can be made ahead of time and can sit in your refrigerator for a quick lunch or snack.

The Best Ambrosia Salad is a fluffy salad made with fresh pineapple, mandarin oranges, maraschino cherries, coconut, marshmallows, fresh whipped cream, a touch of sour cream, and sugar. This is a nostalgic, classic side dish or dessert recipe.

Blackberry Recipes:

I love going up to the Northwest and picking berries in the summer and bringing them home to make beautiful blackberry desserts. Blackberry galette is an open-faced, rustic pie and so much easier than making a classic pie.

Homemade Ice Cream Recipes:

I grew up making homemade ice cream all summer long. There’s nothing like making ice cream with all-natural ingredients like fresh cream, milk, and sugar.
