Summertime treats!Posted by Mosquito Squad

Isn’t it funny how great recipes seem to surface at different times of the year? I get it and all, it gets cold – we want to be warm so outcome the crock pots and roasters. We hit 65 degrees and then its corn on the cob and fruit salads.
That got me thinking so I thought I would ask about your favorite recipes or thoughts on seasonal foods that you enjoy during the summer months.
One of my favorites is a Fruit Parfait of sorts. The recipe can be doctored however you like but here’ are the main ingredients I roll with for roughly 5 servings. Fruit (lots of fruit!!) I go with Raspberries, strawberries, black berries – any berry, Yogurt (strawberry or again any berry), a package of similar flavored Jell-o, whipped cream/topping and lastly cookies. You can use Nilla wafers, pecan sandies, oreos, or whatever you like. I tend to go with one of those three – but graham crackers are also a good choice. Mix Jell-o, yogurt and whipped topping together (now called the mixture). Break cookies into little bits (little smaller than bite size). Then I do a layer of the berries, a layer of the mixture and then sprinkle on some cookies and then repeat . Voila!!!
It is a simple quick and easy treat that people love!
Let me know what you think & send me your suggestions!
