    If you're an ice cream fanatic, then you're totally going to flip over two new flavors Ben & Jerry's introduced, which are both inspired from popular sketches on Saturday Night Live.

    I know ... when I first heard that, I was all, "Huh?!?" too. But it makes perfect sense. I promise.

    The first new flavor is called "Lazy Sunday," and it's based on the sketch by the same name featuring Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell. And duh, since "Lazy Sunday" centers around a love for cupcakes, I'm sure you can only imagine how to die for this particular flavor sounds.

    Seriously. I'd happily gain a few pounds for a tub of this stuff.

    In my family, the summer months are all about birthdays. Me, my sister, one of my brothers, and my dad -- we are all June and July babies. While it's a great time of year to celebrate, it can also be also be tough on the people putting together those celebrations. That's because birthdays mean one thing (in addition to saying hooray to passage of time) -- baking a cake. And nothing is quite so brutal as standing in front of a oven on a hot, hot day. 

    That's where this killer 4 ingredient no-bake cake comes into play! Save yourself a trip to the grocery store, time in the kitchen, AND from having to turn that evil oven on! This cake is so good, and so easy, you might wish you had more summertime birthday friends. Even better, you might just start inventing reasons to eat cake everyday. Everyday = cake day.

    It isn't officially summer until your kids are covered head to toe in melted popsicles. Who cares about the mess? That's what sprinklers and dogs who love to lick were made for, right? Exactly. Still, keeping the house fully stocked with the icy treats can be a hassle, and you don't want kids totally wired on sugar day in and day as they run in tiny little circles banging their heads on the wall, do you? 

    I've got a solution to the sugar madness, the no-school boredom, AND the popsicle problem! Boom! I'm a problem-solving machine! Get the kiddos on board and make your own red, white, and blue rocket popsicles! Of course you can update this recipe to make any ol' type of popsicle you desire, but something about the red, white, and blue popsicles always makes me giddy with thoughts of summer. This recipe does mean investing in popsicle molds, but trust me -- they are cheap and basically pay for themselves.

    Key Lime pie is one of my favorite desserts. The only problem with it for me is that I usually want it in the dead of summer, when the last thing I actually want to be doing is spending hours in the kitchen and then even more hours waiting to eat a pie. By the time my ambitious key lime pie recipe is down I've usually already eaten my weight in Popsicles. Yes, even the orange ones.

    That's where key lime ice cream pie comes in! This icy, scrumptious take on the old favorite is the real deal. That's right -- Popsicle meets ice cream meets key lime pie with this favorite! You can whip it up in under five minutes without breaking a sweat. Well, without continuing to sweat like a beast anyway. Once bite, and you'll be chilly, lime-tasting heaven!

    One of my favorite wedding traditions is saving a piece of the wedding cake to eat on your first anniversary. Usually it's the very top tier, which just happens to be the perfect size for a couple to share. What a sweet way to celebrate a year of marriage -- and to remember the happy occasion you shared together!

    Even though in this case the sentiment means more than the actual taste, you still want to preserve as much of the flavor and the decoration as possible. Freezer burn is not delicious. So here's the best way to freeze that top tier of your wedding cake.

    Everyone is buzzing about mint juleps, the cocktail made (usually) with bourbon, simple syrup, a sprig of mint, and loads of ice -- in an elegant silver tumbler, of course. But why drink a mint julep when you could eat one? The cocktail has inspired dozens of tasty dessert treats. You don't actually have to watch the Kentucky Derby or wear a big hat to join in the fun this weekend -- try one of these mint julep desserts instead.

    Graduation season is right around the corner. As the high school and college seniors are wrapping up their studies and getting ready for their next adventures, parents are gearing up for one night: the graduation party.

    Sending out the invites, checking the guest list, and ordering food, music, and entertainment are all top of mind. But the centerpiece of the party, aside from the actual grad, of course, is the cake. It's a way to perfectly symbolize the past few years of school and shows the grad just how proud everyone is.

    Ladies, I have found the one ice cream flavor probably none of us wants to try. It's a blue Viagra-laced ice cream called "arousal." Food inventor Charlie Harry Francis created the confection for the birthday party of an A-list celeb client he refuses to name. (But we're taking guesses!) The ice cream is champagne flavored, and each scoop contains 25 milligrams of Viagra. That's about what you get from the lowest dose of the male enhancement drug.

    In his blog, Lick Me I'm Delicious, Francis says he had to sign a confidentiality agreement with his client and can't tell us much more than that. But, he adds, "I am allowed to say that they were 'very happy with the end result.'" ORLLY Francis? I'd love to learn more. I mean -- I know what Viagra does. I'm just curious about what effect this blue ice cream had on the birthday party.

    Easter is just around the corner, and Pinterest is brimming with fun kid-friendly potluck recipes to try. I couldn't resist the colorful spin on the traditional deviled eggs of these Jello flavored deviled eggs, and I quickly got to work!

    This could be a great after-school treat, a fun dessert, or even a great addition to our Easter brunch spread.

    Easter is a great opportunity to get really creative, especially when it comes to dessert. Me? I'm a huge fan of making my annual bunny cake. There are a glut of different recipes out there when it comes to making an Easter bunny cake. Some of them are fast and easy but don't look great, and others are gorgeous but will eat up the better part of your day. Who has time for that?

    The recipe I used this year is all about speed. It's also all about the wow-factor. In just under an hour, I managed to put together this life-like bunny cake, and I couldn't have been happier with the results. Not only did it look adorable (I added some Peeps and some Cadbury mini eggs to complete the diorama of the bunny and her brood), but it tasted divine. I used a lemon cake mix, but you can use whatever flavor you want. Take a look!
