Summertime Is Party Time In The South

In the summertime it seems as if party time escalates in the South.  There are weddings, reunions, anniversary celebrations, garden parties, picnics and so many other occasions to prepare and share food.  I have really enjoyed reading the By Invitation Only Cookbook by the Junior League of Pensacola, Florida. The book is beautifully illustrated and honestly, I think there is a menu of wonderful recipes for every occasion.  I had every intention of sharing recipes that would be good possibilities for weddings; however, I have chosen several different recipes to share with you that would be great for many different special occasions.

I love Vidalia Onions and I can imagine making this onion dip for a picnic or neighborhood block party.

I think the egg salad sandwiches would be great for a luncheon or a wedding or baby shower.


The Orange Tiramisu would be great for a family reunion and the peaches in wine would be great for just about anything.


I love the salad dressings and they would be so good for those wonderful summertime vegetables.




What about serving this pasta salad as a surprise dish for a mid-week meal.

I hope you enjoyed these recipes as much as I have enjoyed sharing them to you.  Here is North Carolina we have been having very warm days and it seems more like August.  I hope it starts to rain soon and we can have more enjoyable days outdoors.  Right now, I am just very thankful for air conditioning.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. That Orange Tiramisu recipe may be one I have to try. Have to find the best pound cake recipe though – do you have one? Junior League cookbooks have always been among my favorites. If I had room to collect them, I’d do so in a heartbeat. Hugs!

  2. Oh you have made me hungry for an egg salad sandwich!!! I love them but I will not make it myself as I do not feel it ever tastes as good as when someone else has made it…hahhaha. I have always found the best ones at church festivals. Oh……hahahaha…… tummy just growled really loud!
