We went down to the Corpus Christi/Padre Island area last week, so if you noticed a lack of posting it’s because I was
lounging on the beach, relaxing playing with the kids on the beach, which included sand castles, boogie boards, kites and shell collecting. And a sunburn for Brian and me. We were diligent about keeping the kids slathered with sunscreen but we both managed to miss spots on ourselves, and ohmyword are we paying for it this week.
All in all, though, it was a really wonderful, fun trip, and it really put me in a summery mood. And in the summer, there are days that it is just hot and you definitely don’t want to turn on the oven and add to that in any way.
Icebox desserts are a lifesaver in the summer, because you end up with something delicious and you don’t have to heat up the house in the process. They’re also great to have the kids help with since there’s no dangerous heat element involved and there are plenty of opportunities for spoon licking.
Today I’ve got ten icebox cakes and pies to share with you, including:
- Snickers icebox cake from Bakers Royale. Basically a giant Snickers ice cream bar. Yes, please.
- Coconut Lime Icebox Pie – could you get any more summery? – from The Cozy Apron. I can’t wait to try this one!
