One of the things I love about summer is the food! Barbecuing is my favourite way to make a summer meal, and there are so many great salads we can have in the summer months (winter too, but it’s just not the same). Here are some fun ideas for summer desserts that you can make while entertaining or just for the family. Click the dessert names to go to the recipes.

Summer Berry Mousse Cake

Okay, it’s obvious I like berries. This would make a great 4th of July cake too!

This recipe offers a method for both beginners and experts in the kitchen. I definitely need the  beginners option.

Huckleberry Ice Cream

Homemade ice cream is amazing. I really need to get myself an ice cream maker so I can try making my own at home.
