12 Tasty Ice Box Pies

YOU GUYS…summer is the worst.

It’s hot, muggy, and literally impossible to turn your oven on without heating up your entire house. This, of course, makes it near impossible to enjoy a yummy cake in the summertime…unless it’s an ICE BOX CAKE.

Made almost completely in your freezer and featuring such delicious foods as whipped cream, ice cream, and fruit, ice box cakes and pies are an awesome summertime staple. They’re great for summer birthdays, BBQ’s, or just to cool down on a hot summer afternoon.

Often inspired by delicious cocktails (like pina coladas and margaritas), ice box cakes make it slightly easier to enjoy the bright summer sunshine!

15 Sensational Strawberry Recipes

We’re (finally!) coming into some warmer months here in the Midwest…which means berries are in season!

Whenever berries are on sale at the grocery store, I usually stock up. I love adding them to granola and yogurt, plus they’re just a healthy snack as is!

Strawberries are great for cooking and baking, as they retain their sweetness even after they’re cooked, baked, sliced or dunked. They’re durable and most of the time you can get a great 2 for 1 deal if you shop at the right time.

If you’re looking for some delicious and tasty ways to eat strawberries this summer, here are 15 sensational strawberry recipes that will have you ready for warm weather in no time!
