Summertime Sweets

Hey guys! I sure have missed you. I’m sorry for not posting as much lately, but I kind of got swept away by summer and some few things going on in real life. I am excited to say that soon, well it’s probably going to be several weeks from now, but soon I’ll have a new site for you. It’s been forever … years even … since I had this little sweet spot redesigned and I can’t wait for you guys to see it. Plus, it will finally be mobile friendly. Hands high in the air …Yay!

So with summer on the brain and my oven off this past weekend, I thought I would feature some of my fave summery sweets. If you’ve been a long-time follower you’ll remember some of these oldies but goodies and if you’re new to the site, then I hope you have fun looking through all the yum.

Let’s get started……

Banana Pudding

Some Like it Hot…
…and judging by how quickly this dessert disappeared, some like it cold, too. I’m talking about good, old-fashioned banana pudding, of course. Me? I like it cold… okay, and hot, too! My grandmother used to make a homemade one that was served warm and oh, how I wish I had the recipe for it. But, since I don’t and it’s summer… Continue Reading

Butterfinger Crunch Ice Cream

Butterfinger Crunch Ice Cream
I enjoy ice cream way too much. I think I could eat it every day. And I almost did last week when I was on vacation. Ice cream is my traveling must-have treat above all other sweets. And now that I’m back home, I already feel like I’m having withdrawal. Luckily, this no-churn ice cream … Continue reading

Okay, I almost feel silly posting this. It’s sooo so easy, but it makes me way happy when I bite into one that I can’t resist. It’s the simple things sometimes you know. I was at Bruster’s the other day getting some ice cream and this poster was staring me back in the face. Umm … Continue reading

Mom Approved!
These may not look like all that much at first glance, but let me tell you they are fantastic! They’re little lemon brownies or lemonies. My mom found them on Pinterest and said she wanted me to make some for her right away. So I came up with this version to give her on Mother’s … Continue reading

Burgers and Bees
Bzzzzzzzz. Bees first. I did these a while back. They were some of my first attempts at turning cake pops into little creatures. Since doing them, I’ve seen other variations shared by readers that are pretty darn cute, too. Some with smaller wings using jumbo white heart sprinkles that I think are just darling. I’ll … Continue reading

Mocha Brownie Milkshakes

Brownie Mocha Milkshakes
So, I’m kind of in love with this milkshake. Brownies, ice cream, chocolate syrup and a little Kahlua coffee. My Saturday night is to blame for these. With a sudden late night craving for chocolate, I went to the pantry … fingers crossed … that I had a brownie mix (aka my guilty pleasure quick … Continue reading

Snow Cones
These snow cones won’t melt. Nope. They’re not icy… but they are frosted. They’re snow cone cupcakes and they were a lot of fun to make. I decorated them in red, white, and blue so you can see how cute they can be for Memorial Day or the Fourth. When I made them, I wanted … Continue reading

Brownie Sundae Bon Bons

Brownie Sundae Bon Bons

It’s been soooo hot the last few days. Like historically hot with record-breaking temperatures in Georgia. Throw in our humidity and it’s a recipe for staying inside and enjoying the cool breeze of the air conditioner. I’ve lived without one when I was younger, but in the south, the a/c is definitely appreciated. So instead … Continue reading

Sweet Tarts
I decided I need to add a little more fruit to my diet. My pie diet, anyway. Berries. Black and blue. And raspberries, too. I think I love you. These are really easy to make. Pie crust, plus berries… Just fold and bake. This one didn’t even make it to the plate. Enjoy them topped … Continue reading
