By Miriam Rossow, Communications Coordinator
This is the third post in our Summer Recipes series for desserts. Each blog has featured a different item. The first week we featured ice cream and last week for the 4th we featured berries. This week we will be featuring desserts with lemon and lime!  Enjoy and share pictures of your desserts in the comments or on our FB page.

Lemon-aide or Lime-aide just screams summer from lemon-aide stands to a refreshing popsicle. The tangy and tart flavor along with a little bit of sweet is so refreshing on a hot summer day! This week we will be hot with temperatures in the 90's all week! Enjoy a new recipe as you enjoy the sun and summer with friends and family!
