We don’t know about where you live, but here in Georgia the heat in August can be down right sweltering! The sun shines down and the humidity is simply off the charts. It’s all you can do to try and stay cool, and air conditioning becomes your best friend.
In heat like that the last thing we want to do in the Test Kitchen is cook up a hot meal or really eat anything hot at all. For some reason we just aren’t as hungry in this heat and it seems the only food we can stand eating is something cool. So, if you share these same feelings about eating hot food when it is too hot out to stand it, try one of these “cool” menus for those hot summer nights.
As important as air-conditioning in August, we just love ice cream or any frozen dessert. So much so, that sometimes we may just skip a meal all together and have dessert for dinner. Heck, in August we will try any recipe with the word frozen in it! So treat your family and cool off after dinner with one of Paula’s best frozen desserts!

Paula, I used to watch your show on Food Network a lot when I still had the TV and cable many year ago. You weren't even that big a star back then. I always love watching you cook on Youtube after I ditched my TV and cable and read your recipes on Food Network Magazines. I hope one day you can return to Food Network and the Food Network Magazine. I stop buying the magazine since you were gone.
