Sweet Treats

One of the things I have always loved about the summer is the food. In particular, I love desserts. Growing up I use to bake anything you can imagine with her. With that being said I just wanted to post some of the tasty treats that I am dying to make before the summer is over. I put the site that they can be found in case anyone does read this and decides to give, making one of these a try.

Glazed Strawberry Pie 9 (cooking.com)

This is found on is literally just strawberries (the glaze is made with sugar and some other items like lemon juice) and graham crackers. One does not need to be a cook to make this pie.

Glorious Red, White, and Blue Cake (epicurious.com)
Glorious Red, White, and Blue Cake
This cake is more of a 4th of July piece but it can be made a summer with the fresh fruit. Instead of frosting between the cake layers I was thinking of doing jam or even doing it as all white cake with different jam flavors(blackberry, blueberry, etc).

Margarita Lime Pie (cooking.com)

This pie looks so good but I would not be able to eat it unless I change the  macadamia nuts (totally allergic to them).  This would be great after a Mexican dinner party.

Strawberry, Lemon and Vanilla Ice Cream Parfait (foodandwine.com)
Strawberry, Lemon and Vanilla Ice Cream Parfait
This dessert looks delicious but also it is a little healthier then some of the other ones. You can always substitute strawberry for any other type of fruit.

Anyone who knows me knows one of my life goals would be to work for Southern Living. I have been reading it since I was old enough to read. This is an adult version of Popsicles (it has tequila in it).

Fresh Strawberry Meringue Cake (southernliving.com)

I have been wanting to make this cake since I saw it in the April issues of Southern Living. I use to make meringues in high school and hopefully by the end of summer I will have tried (or attempted) making this.

If you notice, I really like fruit (in particular strawberries). I guess when it hot out I would rather eat fruit besides chocolate beside that you can eat chocolate anytime.

Until next time,
