I’m always the one that shows up to the barbecue with a dessert in hand. Savory sides are fine, but sweets are where it’s at. I love experimenting with new recipes, but sometimes it’s nice to pull out my grandmother’s cookbook and whip up some crowd-pleasing classics. If you’re a fan of the old-school favorites, then you’ll love these new twists, too.

I found out a little late that today is National Chocolate Chip Day which means I didn’t get to aggressively eat chocolate chips all day. (I can’t decide if that’s a good thing or a bad thing yet.) But it has given me plenty of time to browse some drool-inducing recipes for later. Tonight may be a dessert first kind of night. Here are my favorite picks, with first place going to the chocolate chip banana bread. That glaze — I can’t stop staring.

I love any day that gives me an excuse to eat sweets, including today, National No-Bake Dessert Day. No-bake desserts are my favorite because 1. they’re delicious, 2. they’re easy to make and 3. it frees up the oven so you can make other delicious food for guests. I’m sure everybody’s tried Sarah’s ever-so-popular no-bake peanut butter pie recipe, but here are a few other recipes that are worthy of trying.

We added a fall twist to this classic Italian dessert with pumpkin puree and espresso. Yum!

Today marks the start of the 2012 Olympics!  Every four years, I forget that I’m not into sports and glue myself to the TV for event after event. Which dark horses will topple the favorites? Will the US win the most medals? Who will be the Michael Phelps and Shawn Johnson of London 2012?  Also: What can I snack on while I ponder these important questions from the sofa?

I’m no sports analyst, but I can help with that last one. Here are some (adorable!) Olympic-themed treats to try for tonight’s opening ceremony or anytime during this athletics-filled summer.
