Tasty Tuesday: Summer Treats

Last weekend I got my first dose of Summertime Brain relaxing by the pool with friends and enjoying some gelato in the park. Summer is my favorite season and I can't wait to enjoy some of these treats during the warm days ahead.

1. Ice Cream/Gelato/Frozen Yogurt: If you know me at all you know I'm obsessed with all things ice cream any time of the year but especially during the summer months. If you live in Chicago Berrymoon and Yogurtland are my picks for creating your own frozen yogurt creations with endless toppings (which let's be honest is the best part). If you're in the mood for classic homemade ice cream head over to Bobtail and enjoy my favorite Chicago flavor Cubby Crunch. And if you want a taste of Italy then make your way to Paciugo for some authentic gelato in exotic flavors such as Black Pepper Olive Oil and Vanilla Lavender.

2. S'mores: The one thing I look forward to the most during the summer is s'mores in Glen Arbor. I'm pretty much obsessed with all types of desserts that revolve around s'mores (my Pinterest Dessert board will prove that) but the real thing around a fire on Little Glen Lake is what I crave the most.

3. Key Lime Pie: I know I've posted about my love of Key Lime Pie on Project Soiree before but it's seriously one of my favorite desserts that I can't live without during the summer. My ideal summer menu would include M22 Chardonnay, fresh Salmon on the grill with vegetables from the farmers market and my mom's homemade Key Lime Pie.

  1. It's both a blessing and a curse that Paciugo & my favorite fro-yo, Forever Yogurt, are within blocks of my apartment! An at-home summertime treat...
