Summer Recipes

In summer, people have a lot of freedom to do whatever and make whatever they want. However, with that freedom often times comes boredom and the need for something different. The following videos give some great ideas of what to make for any time of the summer day. I like these in particular because they often offer a healthier version of the recipe, as well.  The videos that I’ve collected here give step-by-step guides on how to make each recipe. Even if you don’t make these specific recipes, I hope these will spark some creative ideas of your own.

My Thoughts


These recipes are so easy to follow, and they sound delicious! I watch these youtubers all the time and can say with great confidence that they make tasty stuff. I can’t wait to try some of these recipes out for myself!


If you can, you should check out other ShowMeCute, Brooklyn and Bailey, Meredith Foster, and keepupwithliv videos. They never disappoint, are entertaining, and offer much more than just these recipes. Each YouTube channel offers something unique and different, and so I can’t pick a favorite. Each channel is great in its own way!


Out of each video listed in this article I have personal favorites in each video:

  • ShowMeCute’s Summer Drinks- Shirley Temple
  • Brooklyn and Bailey’s Gourmet S’mores- Twix
  • Meredith Foster’s Easy DIY Summer Recipes- Homemade Rice Chips
  • Meredith Foster’s Healthy Snacks for Spring/Summer- Baked Zucchini Fries
  • keepupwithliv’s Healthy Dinner Ideas- Tortilla Pizza
  • keepupwithliv’s Healthy Summer Treats- Pineapple Pops


Each recipe is unique and tries to liven up summer eating. This is great for me because in the summertime I always feel like I get stuck eating the same thing over and over again.


I hope that some of these recipe ideas help you out as much as they helped me. I can’t wait to make these, and I hope you can’t either! Have a great summer Falcons and happy cooking!
