Summer is just around the corner, and I don't know about you, but—bring it on! This past winter seemed especially long, so I am ready to step into the season early. Moving away from cold-weather soups and stews, I am ready to make foods in my kitchen that embody the summer harvest. After looking through our magazine archives, I found these three refreshing recipes that I am most eager to try in the coming months. Check them out below.

Basil Limeade

Summer Drink: Basil Limeade

Every summer deserves a signature drink, and this herbal limeade is destined to be 2013's signature drink. Now that the weather is starting to warm up, it's time for me to fill my container garden with summer herbs, including fragrant basil, and what better way to use it up than in this refreshing libation.

Chicken and Spinach Pizza 

Summer Pizza: Chicken Spinach Pizza

Come summertime, there is nothing easier than washing and chopping your summer harvest, tossing your favorite ingredients onto a scrumptious flatbread, and heating it all up in the oven until it's ready to serve. This pizza combination tastes great and is easy to make. Whip it up for a simple weekend lunch, or serve it to impress house guests during social get-togethers.

Honeydew Melon Tarragon Sorbet 

Summer Dessert: Honeydew Melon Sorbet

As soon as the weather heats up, you will be so glad that you kept this recipe handy. Delight in the flavors of honeydew and tarragon with this homemade sorbet. Melon and tarragon are a striking flavor combination, and with little more than sugar, water and herb sprigs, this desserts is super easy to prepare.
