Can we talk about how hot it is?

I’m SO over it. Currently burning all my fall candles and loading my Forever 21 cart with sweaters.

I need snow in my life.

Anyway, I got together with a bunch of my favorite food bloggers to share this epic list of no bake desserts. Because who wants to heat up the oven these days?

Not me.

I mean, I still do it. Because a girl needs pumpkin muffins in July sometimes. But I don’t want to.

Enjoy all the yummy desserts that won’t make you sweat to death!

Oh man y’all, when I left San Francisco on Friday, I was in a sleeveless shirt. And then I stepped off the plane into 3 degree weather. It was painful.

And yeah, that move to Texas isn’t looking so bad right now.

I was in a soup mood all weekend because of the weather so I thought I’d put together a list of my favorite soup recipes across the interwebs. I divided them into chicken, beef/lamb/pork, seafood, and meatless because long lists without categories makes my brain go all fuzzy.
