During the summer, family-friendly recipe ideas are abundant and the options plentiful—we’ve compiled five recipe favorites to celebrate another season of great eats.
In the sweltering heat, nothing cools us down quite like ice-cream. Don’t worry about buying ice-cream, making it is the way to go. Especially for this ice cream recipe. Roll up your sleeves, invite the little ones, and create this blueberry and honey filled treat together. Don’t forget the crunchy waffle cones, because these cones are the only thing that could make this treat better than it already is!
Can’t shake the nagging feeling of being parched? It’s important to hydrate with plenty of water, however, once you’ve done that there’s something to be said about home-brewed peach iced tea. With Homegrown’s famous organic peaches and your preferred blend of tea, you’ll have the ideal setup for a relaxing summer afternoon lounging on the porch with a glass in hand. If you’ve never tasted real, homemade peach tea, prepare yourself for the taste of summer in a glass.
Hearty doesn’t begin to describe this filling omelet. When you’re looking for an empowering, filling breakfast (or brunch) to start the day, this ingredient-packed omelet will satisfy even the hungriest tummies. This is the type of meal meant for the important days—like the first day of school or before a business meeting. The kind of meal a parent makes because the timing is perfect, and there’s a buzz of importance in the air. The red onion, sweet pepper, zucchini, tomato, and mozzarella together make a combination we would like to see more of. We think you’ll agree, just ask your taste buds.
While this muffin is more than suitable for people of all ages, it comes with the added benefit of presenting zucchini and carrots in an acceptable way for picky eaters.

As far as muffins go, this applesauce based recipe is power-packed and ready to improve your day.
