Yesterday when I got into my car after a round of interminably long errands, the car’s temperature gauge said that it was 116 degrees outside. I think that Death Valley has a world record high of 134 degrees and here in southern Arizona we are (give or take) just a few degrees short of that record. I believe it might be time for me to take the welcome sign off the front of our house and instead replace it with one that says, “Welcome to hell.” Um not that my house is hellish and all……
Anyways, today to beat the heat I hit my favorite online idea factory, Pinterest, and I found a whole bunch of fun and easy recipes to help beat the heat! So if you too are feeling like the skin on your face just might melt off, have I got the perfect list for you!

Stay cool and thanks for stopping in!
