Lemonade Icebox Cake

Lemonade Icebox Cake

Icebox cakes are an excellent summertime dessert because they require no baking – and, thus, don’t heat up your kitchen – and they are served cold, which makes them a delightfully cool treat on a hot afternoon.

Strawberry Banana Bread

Strawberry Banana Bread

Bananas seem to ripen extra-fast during the summer. I use them to make smoothies, popsicles and I even simply pop them into the freezer for later use in baking.

Whole Wheat French Toast

Whole Wheat French Toast

French toast recipes usually call for rich, eggy breads like challah and brioche. These breads make for a rich breakfast dish that is a bit of a blank slate for the flavors of your syrup or toppings.
