5 Easy Summer Appetizers


Happy summer, everyone! It’s that time of year to give your Kenmore stove a break for the evening and whet your appetite with some cool bites. No one really wants to feel the sweltering heat from our lovely appliances mid-summer so I’ve decided to whip up some healthy and simple recipes that only require your Kenmore blender and a couple of cooling ingredients. Entertaining your guests will be a breeze. After all, I never sweat in my kitchen I only sparkle.

Enjoy a safe and healthy summer and remember, when you cook with Kenmore, you cook with love!
