Let's talk about dessert today. It's been far too long since we've had a good chat about dessert, and given it's the middle of June (WHAT?!) there are surely countless barbeques, birthdays, picnics, potlucks, and other celebrations on your calendar that may require a special sweet treat.
Personally, I've got dessert on the brain because next week is a big celebration week in our family. We have two birthdays and a wedding anniversary squeezed into a four-day span, so the last week of June always features at least one chocolate cake (for my dad) and a batch of strawberry shortcake (my favorite).
If you are looking for some dessert inspiration, here are some of my favorites from the archives.

(Psssst: top it off with some maple ice cream)
Happy celebrating, happy eating!
