It’s the middle of summer and I know what you’re thinking: there’s no way I’m turning on the oven, not even for dessert. It’s okay, we’re all in the same boat. Here in Chicago, where temperatures have been consistently in the 90s and above for the last two weeks, we wouldn’t even dream of touching the “on” button on our ovens. It’s just too.darn.hot. So, to get our sugar fix lately, we’ve been making lots and lots of no bake desserts. We’ve tried some fabulous no bake pie recipes and some scrumptious no bake cookies. Also, icebox cakes have become our new go-to dessert for weekend get-togethers with friends and family because they’re so yummy and there’s no oven required!
As we head into what’s sure to be yet another month of soaring temperatures, we couldn’t think of a better giveaway for this week than this new cookbook full of no-bake dessert recipes.
