Must Try August Long Weekend Recipes

Updated: Aug 1, 2023

It's the last long weekend of our beautiful summer so I've picked some of my favourite must-try summer recipes for you.


Somehow we are already at August Long this year, but we'll just blow past the fact that this summer has blown by and find some great recipes that you have to try this weekend. This is a small collection of some of my favourite summer recipes.

Pick and choose the ones that look good or the ones that seems a little different than what you usually enjoy and try them out! I promise, I wouldn't share anything that wasn't great.

Whether you're getting together with friends, going camping, or hanging out at home this long weekend, I hope you'll be enjoying some amaaaazing food. What else are long summer weekends for?? With that, here are my favourite summer recipes that you have to try!

Get the recipes by just clicking on the pictures.


Blueberry Sheet-Pan Pancakes

These pancakes are the classic fluffy breakfast goodness covered in syrup that you're used to but all poured in a pan, baked, and cut so you don't have to spend an hour standing at your stove flipping pancakes. Enjoy your weekend and bake these up for everyone. They're so good!


Whipped Goat Cheese with Candied Bacon & Jalapeños

This Whipped Goat Cheese with Candied Bacon & Jalapeños is one of my newest favourite appetizer recipes. The creamy dip is topped with sweet bacon, jalapeños, and thyme honey all spread on toasted ciabatta.

Enjoy this with a glass of your favourite sauv blank or chardonnay and it's sure to become one of your favourites too.


Hot Honey Dill Chicken Skewers with Southwest Salad

This Hot Honey Dill Chicken Skewers recipe with Southwest Salad is a quick, easy one for a day this weekend when you only want to spend 30 minutes or less making a lunch or dinner. You can throw it all together easily and everyone will love it. That sweet, charred chicken is addicting!

Easy Beef Burritos

As an alternative to the grill recipe, these barbacoa (shredded beef) burritos are an easy slow-cooker meal with minimal prep required and a delicious result. It's the perfect low-effort dish that makes a great family meal.


Date Night Skillet Peach Cobbler

Soft, syrupy peaches, crispy but soft cobbler topping, and creamy vanilla ice cream - how can this Date Night Skillet Peach Cobbler not be a summer favourite? If you want to make this dessert more than 2 servings, feel free to use a large skillet and multiple the recipe accordingly. Trust me, this one will make you a pretty popular host.


Classic Aperol Spritz

There is nothing like a cool drink on a warm weekend day. This Aperol Spritz is perfect for just that. Like how fresh and beautiful does this look? Fresh oranges, zesty aperol, bubbly prosecco, just enough ice to keep it cool for sipping. I mean, it's literally summer in a glass.

Cheers and have a great long weekend!
