This bread. THIS BREAD. My goodness.

Probably one of my most favorite recipes of the year. I ran across this recipe in an issue of Cook’s Country magazine, as they were attempting to recreate a spicy cheese bread sold at a bakery in Wisconsin. While I’ve never been to said bakery (and unfortunately the page the recipe was on didn’t have the name of the bakery!), I’ve never met a combination of cheese and bread that I didn’t like, so I immediately tore it out of the magazine and filed it away.

As far as yeast breads go, this was incredibly easy to mix together and get baked with a minimal amount of steps and time. To say that we loved this bread would be the understatement of the century.

Samoa Icebox Cake: A classic no-bake dessert that features all of the classic flavors of one of the most popular Girl Scout cookies - Samoas!

Icebox cakes are one of my very favorite summer desserts. They are completely no-bake, which means no turning on the oven during the ungodly heat and humidity that’s ravaging most areas this time of year. Furthermore, they’re kept chilled in the refrigerator, which makes for a totally refreshing when it’s a bazillion degrees outside.

I recently got a copy of the new cookbook No-Bake Treats, which is 100% up my alley. Complicated, time-consuming kitchen projects really do not jive with my season of life right now (i.e. a toddler running around who is down to one nap, and being 7.5 months pregnant), so I am totally embracing delicious, easy recipes. Enter this Samoa Icebox Cake. All of the awesome flavors of a Samoa cookie – chocolate, caramel, coconut – in an icebox cake!
