Beat the heat with our easy and breezy late-summer recipes.

Let the slow, simmering days of late summer keep on ticking. We’re stocked up with plenty of reasons to savor the flavors of the season. First, journey into Louisiana’s Cajun country where you’ll find a secluded bed-and-breakfast that hosts some of the most spirited celebrations of the region’s culture that we’ve tasted. The menu balances the traditional and unexpected with quirky takes like Kettle Chip-Crusted Fried Green Tomatoes and Braised Greens and Grapes. We’re feeling the heat this season and responding with no-cook summer suppers. Step away from the stove using these five fresh and fabulous recipes that’ll get dinner on the table without breaking a sweat. The Crunchy Chicken-Peanut Chopped Salad will save you again and again, we promise. We’re giving you a reason to fire up the grill, too. Try our sizzling skillet steak recipe with blistered vegetables that can be made entirely in your cast-iron skillet. It’s low on cleanup, high on flavor. Is any late-summer night complete without a classic dish with a brand-new twist? Our Best-Ever Succotash features standout ingredients like okra and basil, making it a hit at every gathering. Save any weeknight with a grilled pizza packed full with fresh summer vegetables and savory smoked chicken, while our Mini Tomato Sandwiches with Bacon Mayonnaise turns a classic dish into a tasty appetizer. We couldn’t round up the season without a perfectly chilled dessert. Serve up slices of our No-Bake Peanut Butter-Fudge Ice-Cream Pie, and you’ll be raking in the compliments. Whatever you whip up this August, make it a breeze with these easy recipes.
