I am so not a desert maker… though I love eating it lol.

But my Future Mother-In-Law makes a KICK ass fruit salad. She adds grenadin and rum rum to it and it just tastes amazing!

Early summer – strawberry rhubarb crisp (this is seriously amazing – PM me if you want the recipe)

Late summer – peach cobbler (yum!  reminds me of my grandmother making it when I was a kid…)

@hilsy85: Why not go with a simple strawberry shortcake and whipcream? That is my favorite and it’s so delicious and light. Tis the season for delicious strawberries. ๐Ÿ™‚

Fruit Trifle.

I use pound cake as some of my layers. It doesn’t need the cream on top obviously. My brother is allergic to milk too, so my Mom always used non-dairy pudding instead.

I also make a super yummy twist on apple crisp. I saute granny smith apples in butter and Amaretto until they are super soft and gooey. Then I do a brown sugar, oatmeal, cinnamon and butter crumble on top. If you use cute ramikans then you don’t need a heavy crust either and the top crisps in about 15 minutes or so in the oven.

I freaking love pineapples, mangos and bananas on the grill. So fresh and so yummy!

My favorite summer dessert is Key Lime Pie. And I’m so excited because my husband and I are going to Key West in a month and I’ll get to have it where it originated!

 

@mwitter80: Yum!!! That picture looks heavenly.

I make an orange granita…about 3 oranges (or 2 cups orange juice), 4 tbsp simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water, boiled until sugar dissolves), a dash of vanilla extract and lemon juice. When I use the fruit, I pureer them in the blender then strain. I usually only add enough of the syrup to give it a little sweetness, but every now and again I want something really sweet and add more…and spike it with lemon juice. 

Pour it into a shallow glass or ceramic pan and freeze for 2 hours, strirring to break up the crystals every 30 minutes. It’s slushy and crunchy with ice crystals when done. So delicious and refreshing.
