I absolutely love entertaining, especially during the summer. All the fresh produce makes meal planning a cinch since so much of it can be served with little to no prep, and warm weather means we can enjoy being outside all evening long.

When I do have dinner guests I try to keep dessert super simple. One of my summer go-to’s is an easy loaf cake with whipped cream and fresh fruit. It’s light, easy to prep in advance, and it always gets rave reviews. >> More

I feel like I’ve loved strawberry shortcake my whole life. It was always one of my most favorite summertime desserts growing up and to me nothing quite says summer like a paper bowl filled with yellow cake, whipped cream, and sliced strawberries. One bite and I’m transported back in time: I’m in my grandparents’ back yard where my cousins and I are playing tag and climbing trees while our parents play a game of croquet. So long ago! >> More

Few things make me happier than when I see the return of affordable strawberries at the store every spring. They’re my favorite and I eat them every single day when I can.

Then just last week my grocery store started stocking rhubarb again.

Hooray! It’s strawberry-rhubarb season and I’m just so darn happy about it that I could do a little dance. Or bake a cake. Or both! >> More

Are you a frosting person? I’m totally a frosting person. What’s under the frosting is important too, of course, but I definitely can appreciate a big pile of billowy frosting.

And for me that’s exactly what frosting should be like— light, creamy and cloud-like.

I’ve developed this vanilla buttercream frosting recipe over several years and too many cakes, cupcakes and cookies to count, and I feel pretty confident calling it the very best. Because it is! >> More
