Is there anything better than S'mores at the end of a barbecue on a hot day? I think not.


The weathers been warm, and our kitchen has moved outside to the grill. We live for the warm days for summer, barbecues, and of course S'mores.


Whether we have company, or it's just us, we almost always make S'mores after grilling dinner over the hot coals. It's a great way to spend a little extra time hanging out with family, and friends. The kids always love making S'mores when we have friends over, so we can all enjoy time after dinner on the patio with a sweet treat.


The best part is you don't even need a fire pit just a grill.

Tangy Bacon Cheddar Pea Salad

Tangy Bacon Cheddar Pea Salad
I always loved a Tangy Pea Salad when I was growing up. All the sweet peas that burst open with every bite are a summer staple to me..

My kids not so much.. They love the peas and tangy dressing, but would be ok without the rest. I should have made them a deconstructed Pea Salad, with Bacon and Cheddar optional.. One picked out all the bacon, and another the cheddar cheese cubes..lol..

I always use frozen sweet peas to make pea salad, since they always retain their shape so nicely, with a soft creamy center.  I made my dressing a little lighter using non-fat greek yogurt. I prefer to make Tangy Bacon Cheddar Pea Salad a few hours in advance to allow the flavors to mingle in the fridge.

There's probably a million different Pea Salad recipes, but here's how I made the recipe:

Creamy Parmesan Veggie Pasta Salad

Creamy Parmesan Veggie Pasta Salad
The first time I made this Creamy Parmesan Veggie Pasta Salad I was worried one of the kids would point out the fact I had loaded it with lots of veggies including summer squash and zucchini. I might have even been holding my breath waiting to be called out on it, but one by one they cleaned their plates, before asking for more.

I've made some kind of Pasta Salad variation at least 4 times in the last week, and we still aren't tired of it. Colt helped me make it for my Sister-in-laws gorgeous wedding, and then she requested it again for the 4th of July... Mmm.. Plus we had it with some cold Extra Crispy Fried Chicken one night, and then once more just because.

I still could contently live on Creamy Parmesan Veggie Pasta Salad the rest of the summer for lunch, and dinner.

Make it! Eat it! You'll LOVE it!
