During the pandemic, it’s been easy to miss dessert. As restaurants streamlined their menus for takeout and delivery, even those that previously took pride in sweet dessert menus pared them down to one sad budino that would travel well in a deli container — the loneliest pudding cup, as it were. Don’t get me wrong, this writer ate many of them, while sitting cross-legged on the couch, and they certainly helped to soothe some of the despair out of lockdown.

The only trouble with the crimson stone fruit, also called pie cherries or tart cherries, is that their season is fleeting. For only a few weeks each summer, fragile pints or quarts of bright red sour cherries can be found at markets in most cities in the continental United States — unless you live in or near Michigan or Wisconsin, where the majority of the country’s sour cherry varietals, including Early Richmond, English Morello and Montmorency, are grown.

We all know food is a virtual transport to past times in our lives, so when I can create a dish that resembles the look, feel, and flavor of something enjoyed abroad, memories of happy adventures flood my mind. It’s almost as good as returning to my beloved homeland.
My family hails from Calabria, and I adore visiting that region. But during my last few trips to Italy, instead of staying in one location, I
Before this week, the last time I ate at Serendity3 was probably in the early 1970s, when my grandmother took me, and I think my friend Patrick, to eat some sort of overwhelming sundae.

Though co-owner Hakim Halum said he wasn’t able to include a taco counter like he has at his Westway Plaza store, which has been open since December 2019, he’ll offer something sweeter.

No celebratory meal is complete without dessert, but, on blisteringly hot days, the mere thought of turning on the oven can make you wilt. (If you’re lucky enough to have central air, or don’t mind the heat, here are some summer fruit pies for you. Bake on!) These 16 no-bake recipes are for those sweltering days. A handful of these dishes require a little stovetop or microwave work, but the majority need no heat source at all, so you can stay cool while whipping up something sweet.
