Best Summer {Sweet} Treats

June 28th, 2013 § 2 comments

So…. I live in a basement studio apartment in Hell’s Kitchen. There’s a gay bar across the street and a frozen yogurt shop around the corner, so I’ll go ahead and be the first to admit that I’m not making many cute cocktails or whipping up lots of cool, sweet treats this summer.  {Instead I’m sipping on $4 frozen cosmos while watching Beyonce music videos and eating the occasional pistachio froyo with coconut flakes.  Yes – my life is super hard.}  While my first summer in New York City is nothing short of wonderful, I can’t help but feel nostalgic for the days when I used my kitchen for storing something other than Raisin Bran and chilled water.

So for all of you with a little more space in your homes, here’s a roundup of my favorite sweet treat recipes from last summer – from homemade strawberry sorbet to rose petal cocktails to frozen banana pops!  All of these are perfect for sharing with family and friends during the upcoming holiday week {or just enjoying on your very own}!
