In the summer time I sort of move away from baking as much. I'll still bake bread and an occasional cobbler, but for the most part I like to move away from the heavier foods and on to the "no bake" variety. This is obviously a natural reaction as our bodies avoid foods that way us down and instead indulge in colder, crisper foods, made mostly of the huge variety of fresh summer produce. With this in mind I thought it prudent to come up with a list of some of my go-to summer no-bake desserts. While they are all very different, you'll notice they all obviously don't involve baking and they have very few ingredients. This way you can actually taste the subtlety of each individual flavor.
