Seriously Tempting No-Bake Desserts to Try This Summer

July 29, 2015 11:02 am

If you can’t even imagine turning on the oven during the summer heat, no-bake desserts are the perfect alternatives to your usual fresh baked cookies. These oven-free desserts are just as delicious as more traditional options, and they’re often much easier to prepare, which leaves you with more time for lounging by the pool! Here are three no-bake dessert recipes to try at your next potluck dinner.

7-Layer Ice Cream Cake [marthastewart.com]
Cool off after a summer dinner with this colorful ice cream cake. Pound cake creates a sweet, dense base stacked between layers of tasty vanilla ice cream, while thick meringue is a wonderfully fluffy replacement for the usual heavy icing.

Creamy Layered Lemon Squares [snackworks.com]
Swap out your usual lemon square recipe for something much quicker — and cooler. Basic graham crackers create a crunchy crust, and the addition of ripe strawberries makes this dessert perfect for the summertime.

Hawaiian Cookie Balls [kraftrecipes.com]
The kids will adore these fun and tasty cookie balls made with sweet, crushed pineapple and flaky coconut. You can also decorate them with colorful gel icings and sprinkles to turn them into fun ducks or chickens for a child’s birthday party.

Nick and Sam’s Grill: Brunch it Up in Uptown

July 22, 2015 11:40 am

There's nothing quite like brunch at Nick and Sam's Grill. The restaurant may have been inspired by a steakhouse of the same name in Dallas, but locals seem to agree that dinner takes a backseat to brunch at this offshoot on Fairmount Street. That's largely thanks to the creativity of its head chef, who transforms familiar comfort foods into even more delicious (and gourmet) versions of themselves.

The Captain Crunch French toast, for instance, delights brunchers. Crusted with the popular childhood cereal, drizzled with maple syrup, and crowned with a dollop of cinnamon whipped cream, the treat is enough to appease even the biggest sweet tooth. You can also opt for a breakfast burrito, biscuits and gravy, or even a brisket scramble with eggs and bearnaise sauce. Just don't forget to order a mimosa to wash it all down, as customers give the cocktails high marks, as well.
