Not sure what to eat when the temperatures keep rising? Chow Town’s got you covered. These recipes will satisfy your appetite and keep you refreshed, the perfect combination for those hot summer days.

Chow Town contributor Jasper J. Mirable Jr. has a recipe for Melon and Prosciutto, a popular Italian dish that’s both sweet and savory.

If you need something to wash the pasta down, try one of these five lemonade recipes, which go above and beyond the store-bought powder and bring a fresh, flavorful take on the classic summer refreshment.

Nothing says summer quite like ice cream, which can become a family activity when you make it yourself.

Try Jasper Mirable’s Butterbeer Ice Cream, which was inspired by a trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Fla.

If you’re looking for a more healthy summer treat, scoop up some raspberry sorbet with fresh blackberries.

And as long as we’re bringing fruit into the conversation, the Star’s Citrus and Strawberry Chicken Salad is packed with natural ingredients to satisfy your taste buds.
