Triple Chocolate Cherry Kahlua Ice Cream #SummerDessertWeek

I thought about making this no churn chocolate cherry Kahlua ice cream for #SummerDessertWeek with just one layer of chocolate, using cocoa powder. However, after perusing my baking cabinet and seeing all half full bags of chocolate chips I had (yes, time to organize my cabinets), I decided to go all out and turn my recipe from a decadent chocolate cherry Kahlua ice cream to a super decadent TRIPLE chocolate cherry Kahlua ice cream! Is it so wrong? 😉

Lovely Lemon Cheesecake with Lemon Curd Topping #SummerDessertWeek

I made this Lovely Lemon Cheesecake with Lemon Curd Topping to bring to a friend’s bridal shower. I thought it would be a pretty addition to the buffet table, and it would have a nice summery feel to it. I wish you could have heard the oohs and aahs when I walked in with it. I’d never made such an entrance before, but then again, I’d never walked into a party holding such a showstopper cheesecake before, either! LOL!

Chocolate Chip Dessert Loaf with Coconut and Pecans

I’m not usually one for dessert after dinner, nor do I have a large sweet tooth. However, I’m a complete sucker for anything with coconut and pecans, so a small slice of this Chocolate Chop Dessert Loaf with Coconut and Pecans is definitely one of my favorite after dinner treats.
