Summer Sweets

One thing that I didn't get a chance to do very much at college was bake. Over Winter break I was able to bake a TON for the holidays. I love looking at Food Gawker which is a website introduced to me by my friend Maura. It has soooo many great recipes with amazing pictures detailing each step of the process. It has everything from elaborate main dishes to miniature desserts. These are just a few recipes that I found that are perfect Summer sweets! Enjoy!

This recipe for strawberry shortcake is a classic. There are so many variations and personal touches that can be added, making it perfect for a party! The light whipped cream and fresh strawberries make this a perfect summer dessert. 

Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite desserts and have been since I can remember. My mom used to make the BEST (I'm not exaggerating) chocolate chip cookies with Flicketts chocolate chips.  They weren't too chewy or too tough and they had the perfect density. Even as a six-year-old I could appreciate the perfection of her cookies. When I saw this recipe on Food Gawker I knew I had to post it. These cookies look exactly like the ones that my mom used to make until they discontinued the chocolate chips. I'm so excited to try this recipe!

Could this recipe be easier? A strawberry-banana sorbet sounds complicated, but even without an ice cream maker this dessert is the perfect treat for a hot day. Yum!
