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.

    S'mores Cheesecake / #SundaySupper

    When my son was small, he had a lot of favorite foods that I would make him often. He loved Fetuccini Alfredo, and Chicken Fingers, but as he grew up, I would make his little boy favorites less and less. His old favorites were replaced by new favorites, but the one favorite that never changed was cheesecake! He loves any cheesecake, and this S'mores Cheesecake is a new fave! It's sure to be a favorite for you and your family too!

    Baby Back Rib Burger / #SundaySupper

    Is there anything better than a backyard BBQ? I don't think so! It's fun to cook outside, and the aroma and flavors that you get from grilling are amazing! This is hands down, the best burger I have ever had! When you eat this Baby Back Rib Burger, all of the flavors are there. You can taste the smoked, crispy, bold flavors individually and as a group and they are awesome! This burger takes some prep, but a lot of it can be made ahead of time. Once you start to grill, it comes together quickly, and you will be so happy it does. Enjoy!
