Rating: 3.5 stars 1833
There are certain days during the summer when the last place anyone wants to be is in a hot kitchen. But that's when kids can come to the rescue, making a delicious dessert for the whole family without ever having to ask their parents to turn on the oven. This no-bake cheesecake is sure to please with its creamy center. 

Lemony Angel Food Cake

Rating: 3.5 stars 136
Remember Mom's heavenly angel food cake? Ours has the same ethereal texture (due to egg whites) but with a bright burst of lemon flavor, thanks to fresh juice and zest. Fluffy citrus cream frosting and pretty candied lemon "daffodils" make it an even more memorable dessert.

Basic Chicken Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars 377
Everyone has their own favorite chicken soup recipe, but rarely have so few ingredients added up to so much comfort. This version has classic flavors and, thanks to a simplified method, cooks more quickly than traditional chicken soups (the dish is ready in a little over an hour). There's no need to make a separate stock; the vegetables and meat form their own satisfying broth.

Basic Potato Salad

Rating: 3.5 stars 156
Combining the potatoes with the vinegar mixture while they're still hot allows them to absorb it all for a more flavorful salad.

Peach Crumble

Rating: 3 stars 786
For an even sweeter summer, take advantage of the season's perfectly ripe peaches.

Lemon Cake

One-Pot Meals That Are Perfect for Summer Dinners
Summer often means grilled meals, and while there's nothing wrong with that, one-pan dinners are a good option for warm weather meals, too. Whether made on one sheet pan, in one skillet, a saucepan, or in a Dutch oven, these summer one-pan dinners are lighter and brighter than the casseroles and stews that are our go-tos in fall and winter. They're still filling and nutritious, but feature plenty of summer produce. Don't worry, we're not telling you to put away the grill altogether. We use the grill (or a griddle pan) as our one "pan" in a few recipes. In addition to grilled dinners, you'll find main-dish salads, plenty of pasta, and maybe even a creamy chowder or two. There will also be some broiling, because it's quick and has very tasty results, but we're not as focused as we are in cooler weather on using the stovetop or oven to get dinner on the table.
