I have lived most of my life in areas where summers reach the 100's on a regular basis. I HATE IT! I do not like the heat and the last thing I want to do is cook over a hot stove or oven. So a few years ago I came across old fashioned ice box cakes and desserts. They are mainly no bake or bake for very little time and are so easy! Here are some of my faves that you must try out. Once you make these you will wonder why you go through the hassle of regular desserts at all! The only thing I change is to use real homemade whipped cream instead of cool whip. They are basically inexpensive so enjoy being thrifty!
