This giveaway is closed. Congratulations goes to Kim, Misty, Melinda!

The last school bell is ringing, the sun is in the sky creating longer days, and heat and pools are among us. What does that mean? Beach, Backyard BBQs, and summer!

Sam’s wants to kick off summer with creative recipes and baskets for your summertime fun! Sam’s Club simplifies meal planning by providing easy recipes, great outdoor items.

Sam’s Club has put together some GREAT recipes that I wanted to share with you below.

Blackberry Lemonade Cocktail

Serves 10

  • 3 cups vodka
  • 6 cups Members Blackberry flavored lemonade
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • Lime wedges for garnish if desired
  • 4 cups ice

In a drinks dispenser filled with ice, pour vodka, blackberry lemonade, and pineapple juice. Mix well and serve.

Potato Pouches

  • 2 sheets aluminum foil
  • 2lbs. red bliss potatoes
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup fresh dill chopped
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground pepper

In a small bowl mix together olive oil, mustard, dill, salt and pepper. Lay a sheet of foil on counter.

Rinse potatoes and cut in quarters lay them on the bottom sheet of foil. Pour marinade evenly over potatoes, coating well. Place second sheet of foil on top of potatoes. Gather the top and bottom pieces of foil and starting on one side, fold over the edges twice towards the center, continue until all the edges are turned. This creates a pouch for cooking the potatoes. Place foil pouch directly on the grill. And cook for 15-20 minutes until potatoes are crispy and browned.

Corn salad

  • 2 tbsp. lime juice
  • 3 tbsp. white vinegar
  • 3 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ pepper
  • ½ cup olive oil

  • 2 cups black beans
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup chopped green pepper

In a mixing bowl, whisk together lime juice, vinegar, salt, pepper and olive oil. Add the corn, beans, tomatoes pepper, and cilantro. Toss well and serve.

  70. Nothing screams summer more than rhubarb slush punch!

    6 cups of chopped rhubarb
    7 cups of water, divided
    2 cups of sugar
    3/4 cup of orange juice concentrate
    3/4 cup of lemonade concentrate

    Bring the rhubarb to boil in 4 cups of water. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 5-8 minutes until the rhubarb is tender. Mash the rhubarb and strain. Save the juice from the rhubarb. Add the remaining water, sugar and concentrates. Mix together and freeze.

    When you want to eat it, take it out of the freezer and let it thaw a little bit so that you can scrape it into slush. We put Sprite or 7-up over it.

    It’s refreshing and delicious!!

    A fun summer recipe I make for my kids is “pickle cicle pops”. Instead of dumping out that pickle juice from pickles, add water to it (50% pickle juice to 50% water) and pour into ice cube trays. Cover with plastic wrap and poke a toothpick in each or popcicle stick. Once frozen they are a tangy pickle flavor frozen treat for the kiddos.

    I love making bacon wrapped shrimp on the grill. I add in a chunk of pineapple in the center of the shrimp before wrapping. It gives it a great refreshing pop when you bite in and the saltiness from the bacon…it’s sooo good! :)

    I like to make cake infused with Jello. All you need is a box of cake mix (regular yellow or white cake mix), and a box of Jello mix (my favorite to use is strawberry, but any flavor is fine). Follow instructions on cake mix box and bake. Then make the jello, but don’t refrigerate it. After the cake has baked poke it throughout with a fork and then pour jello over the cake. Cover with cool whip. This make a delicious and fun cake for summer.

  213. My favorite go-to summer dip is peach salsa dip. In a pie plate, spread a block of cream cheese in the bottom, top it with a can of black beans (I rinse before I use them), a can of Newman’s Own peach salsa (or any other peach/mango salsa works), and finish it off with a top layer of mexican shredded cheese. Pop it in the oven for about 30 minutes at 350 – or until bubbly. Serve with tortilla crackers. Yum!

    We make something similar to the potato packets but use red potatoes, diced chicken breasts, cube up a block of cream cheese, sliced onion and French’s Fried Onion rings. Put first 4 ingredients in packet, grill or bake until chicken is done, then top it all with fried onion rings. Delicious and kids will even eat it!
    Another of our favorites is good ol’ pigs in a blanket, served with cold watermelon slices. Perfect by the pool!!
