When it comes to BBQ’ing, full days out by the pool, or the 4th of July, the easier the dessert or snack prep is, the better. That either makes me super lazy or slightly genius (when it comes to being a pro at relaxing, that is). I’m not sure which yet, but regardless, this funfetti dessert chips recipe will definitely be all the rage when it comes to curing a quick sweet tooth after a day in the sun. The bonus part is you can use half of your bag of Kettle Brand chips (our personal favorite brand, especially the sriracha!) as a traditional side for burgers, and the other half of the bag for whipping up what might be the easiest dessert of all time.
Of course, if I’m going to actually
cook make something, I have to go big on the delivery, so I took it a little step further by making dipped waffle cones holders for the dessert chips. Because you know, I have to make it as crazy looking as possible for added effect, of course…
Sometimes I tend to be (un)fashionably late with things, and National holidays are no exception. In this instance, it was just to make sure we didn’t miss anything extra special that some of our favorite bloggers might’ve whipped up for National Donut Day, and of course, we want to take everything into strategic account before pulling together 10 recipes and DIY’s to celebrate donuts.
We wouldn’t want to lead astray on your sugar treasure hunt, and these projects and recipes do not disappoint!…

You may be asking yourself “how in the world is this a unicorn cake, and why would someone make that?”. Well, that’s a great question, and technically I have no idea other than the fact that every time I look at this cake that we created with Monica from Paper Flour Ink (and based off of the amazingly talented Katherine Sabbath‘s designs!), is that it looks like unicorn food. So naturally one should just roll with that, right? To bring it back down to earth a bit I am sharing a classic strawberry cake with coconut buttercream icing to go with, so don’t just me too much! Or do, and I’ll just eat my feeling in unicorn food in the meantime.
But seriously though, who wouldn’t love a cake with a little bit of everything on it? I think if you made one of these bad boy’s and sat it in front of your kid for their next birthday they might actually pass out from excitement (or maybe I was just that kid..). Either way, macarons on top are always a good idea….

We all know when it’s the thick of summer, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven. However, one of my favorite desserts, EVER, is a cheesecake. So what is a girl to do? Make no-bake cheesecake of course.
This riff off of a classic pb&j sandwich is the perfect, creamy treat for a hot summer day. Eat one or two for a snack, or eat a bunch cause this recipe is just that darn good! Did I mention it’s also quick and simple, can’t beat that…
