No Cook, Refreshing Tropical Torte

The heat of the summer is starting to wear on me a little. How about you? I am definitely looking forward to fall! But it is still summer, and I needed a little after dinner dessert for a party I hosted last week. The entire meal was grilled, and I didn't want to heat up the kitchen with the oven, so I made this No Cook, Refreshing Tropical Torte! I used some fun fruit, like carambola (star fruit), kiwi, and mango, a favorite pound cake, and some yummy whipping cream. Sprinkle it with a bit of toasted coconut and dessert is in the fridge!

Apple Streusel Bundt Cake / #BundtBakers

It is beginning to look a little like fall! Well, ok, not outside, but here at #BundtBakers, where this month we are baking bundts with apples! This Apple Streusel Bundt Cake has streusel mix on the top, and cooked apple slices in the middle. I drizzled the cake with melted caramel to get a bushel of flavor in every bite!

The BLT sandwich is pretty much known to everyone, but this Restaurant Style Double Bacon BLT is the original, only elevated! It starts with a homemade garlic aioli, is topped with two types of bacon, a squirt of mustard for some zippy flavor, a piece of creamy swiss and it's all held together with tasty, thick Texas toast! Homemade BLT's will never be the same!

How to Make Mini Lemonade Icebox Cakes

How to Make Mini Lemonade Icebox Cakes ~ I am planning a dinner party at the end of August, and although the menu has been set for a week or so, the dessert has been giving me a headache. I want something special. Something that is amazing, but simple, tasty, and beautiful. I browsed some cookbooks, read a lot of blogs, and checked out restaurant menus, looking for inspiration.  Finally, I came up with the idea of making a lemonade ice box cake, but making them small and individual. I think you are really going to like these!

Grilled Tri Tip and Roasted Corn Salad / #SundaySupper


    Have you had roasted corn this summer? It is definitely my summer food obsession this year. I just can't get enough of the flavor that comes from roasting corn on the grill, letting the flames lick the kernels of the corn. It's such an incredible, over the top flavor! 
    I used tri tip to make this salad, but the meat is certainly interchangeable. Chicken and pork work really well.
