America’s Test Kitchen’s Frozen Lemonade Cake

To make this modern icebox cake, the whizzes at America’s Test Kitchen mixed lemonade concentrate into vanilla ice cream for a refreshing summer dessert beyond compare. Those contrasting (and zingy) layers are made with a combination of lemon curd and Cool Whip. And the crust? Not-too-sweet animal crackers, of course.

That abstract swoosh of color on top is done by dipping a paintbrush in yellow food coloring and brushing it wherever the mood takes you.

You’ll find this and other clever no-bake frozen dessert recipes in “The Complete Summer Cookbook: Beat the Heat with 500 Recipes that Make the Most

Easy Pie Crust Recipes for Summer Desserts

The allure of a homemade fruit pie is real: Just imagine a bubbling double-crusted blueberry number cooling by a breezy window. But the prospect of rolling dough on a steamy day can send even confident cooks packing. To turn out stellar pies showcasing summer’s ripest fruit — without heating up the kitchen — you want the ease of crumb crusts and chilled fillings.

Just about anything you can crush into crumbs, you can use for a no-roll crust. Graham crackers are an obvious choice, but other crumbly cookies, salty crackers and even not-too-sugary cereals can build a tender, cookielike foundation

Android 13’s dessert codename might be Tiramisu

Tiramisu is a deliciously simple Italian dessert made from coffee-infused ladyfingers and whipped mascarpone and/or cream, but it could also be the internal codename for the next version of Android. That’s if a new commit reported by XDA Developers is to be believed. “Rename T to Tiramisu,” the note reads, in what XDA notes is the first public mention of a dessert-based codename for Android 13, expected to release next year.

Up until Android 10, each version of Google’s mobile OS had both a version number and a dessert-based name, which progressed alphabetically with each new release. Android 4

Are Full Dessert Menus Returning to San Francisco Restaurants?

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.

But now that San Francisco is one full month into full reopening, restaurants have been working hard to hire back

This sour cherry pie recipe is summer’s ultimate dessert

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. (New York, Pennsylvania, California, Washington, Utah and a few other states also produce sour cherries, but in much more limited quantities. For

Trader Joe’s Fans Can’t Stop Talking About Its New Vegan Frozen Dessert Cones

It’s National Ice Cream Month, and many Trader Joe’s shoppers are talking about these new vegan frozen dessert cones. As seen on the @TraderJoesObsessed Instagram account, people can’t get over the Hold the Dairy! mini cones. One big draw to this new treat is the serving size. Many people were flabbergasted that there are six mini cones in a single serving. With 12 cones per box, the serving size does leave some questions on the table, even though a box retails for $3.99. Still, this frozen dessert just might be the summer’s best find.

According to @TraderJoesAficado, the

The Only Summer Dessert I’ll Turn the Oven on For

When dreaming of Italy, which happens far more often nowadays, I find myself trying to recreate past trips through recipe development. 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.

Iconic, Decadent Dessert Spot Serendipity 3 Finally Reopens

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. I may have gone again when my daughters were little, but whatever nostalgia I feel about the place hasn’t really been earned by experience.

In fact, the restaurant and dessert palace, which was first opened in 1954 and at one time attracted the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol, Joan Rivers, and Jackie Kennedy, seems to have spent a lot of its creative and culinary energy
