With a book deadline and the Hearts at Home cruise, I missed my monthly contest in June, but I’m ready to go in July!

For those of you who are new to my blog, my contests are designed to be an online moms group of sort. I put out a question and ask you to share your ideas. At the end of the week, I’ll randomly pick three winners from those who have submitted their ideas throughout the week.

I’m going to introduce something new in this contest. It’s called “Mr. Linky” and it will help us not only share our ideas but it will allow us to easily connect to other “mommy bloggers” if we so desire. If you don’t have a blog or don’t want to use Mr. Linky, you can still participate by posting your submission in comment form.

July’s contest will be a Summer Recipe Swap! Every one of us has family favorite summer recipes. This week I’ll be posting one summer recipe each day that the Savage family enjoys. And I want to hear about your favorite recipes, too! Each submission will count as one entry into the contest through Sunday, July 7. On Monday, July 28, I’ll randomly select three winners. The winners will win a Hearts at Home Recipes From The Heart Cookbook which is packed full of easy mom recipes for hungry families!

Do you want to participate? There are two ways:

If you have a blog: You can use the Mr. Linky prompts below. You can fill in your name and put the name of your recipe. It might look like this in the name field: Jill — Lemonade Pie. To make it easy for all of us with hungry families to find, be sure to link the specific post that contains your recipe. After you post your recipe or recipes on your blog, please put a link back to my blog so people can easily come back here to find links to more great recipes! So that you are entered into the contest per recipe, please put in a link to each recipe.

Upload the image to your blog, highlight it again, and then use the link button (if you are in blogger it’s the world with a paperclip) and paste in the link to this post in the box that pops up. The picture will have become an active link!)

If you do not have a blog: Write your recipe in the “comments” section below. You can get to this box by clicking on the word “comments” below. Please leave your name and email address in your comment so we know who you are so we can give credit where credit is due! I need your email to also notify you if your name is pulled out of the hat and you win a cookbook!

Here’s my first recipe. It REALLY is a summer favorite of the Savage Family, plus it’s VERY EASY!

Lemonade Pie

6 oz frozen lemonade or limeade
1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
12 oz Cool Whip
2 graham cracker crusts

In a bowl blend the frozen lemonade, Eagle Brand, and Cool Whip with an electric mixer. Once smooth, pour mixture into the 2 graham cracker crusts. Put in freezer for at least 4 hours. Serve frozen. Cut and serve frozen pie as needed! Because this makes two pies, you can serve one for dessert and keep one in the freezer for unexpected company! Enjoy!
