The summer solstice has come and gone. It’s officially summer!

Those of you who’ve been following me for a while know of my rabid sweet tooth. I’ve tried–many times–to break or curb it, but it’s hopeless. I’m addicted to sugar. As vices go, I suppose it’s better than alcohol or shoplifting, although it doesn’t exactly do wonders for my waistline. Nonetheless, I choose to embrace it.

Now, any dessert connoisseur will tell you that there are seasonal desserts. One wouldn’t bake a spicy pumpkin pie in April, right?

Summer calls for light, refreshing desserts, like strawberry shortcake (I bake a good one with homemade French whipped cream). Or perhaps you prefer a fresh fruit sorbet? Screen Shot 2015-06-22 at 5.23.14 PM

No matter the season, I still favor somewhat hearty desserts. Imagine my delight upon finding this yummy creation: Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie.  Better yet, no baking involved!

My husband and kids love ice cream, so I’m positive this will be a hit in my house.

I’d love it if you’d share your favorite dessert recipe with me. One can never have too many options when it comes to the best part of any meal!
