After 10 years of blogging, I’ve made more light meals for hot nights than I can count. These are recipes for your back pocket when it’s just too darn hot to cook.

Five years ago, I shared a smattering of my favorite easy summer meals…those light meals for hot nights when you need to eat but allllmost don’t want to eat and definitely don’t want to cook much because it’s just too darn hot. I can’t believe that was 5 years ago!!
