    That temperature is way too hot!

  3. Don (@foodieprints) August 3, 2010 at 09:17 #

    Favourite summer dessert is a lemon gelato.

    Though, I’ll eat rich old-fashioned ice cream during any season.

  24. wayne orr August 3, 2010 at 11:37 #

    Right now I’m so hooked on my home-made ice cream. I guess ice cream in any form is my favorite, but Tiger Tail is # 1 and I am determined to make my own.

  25. Scatteredmom August 3, 2010 at 11:58 #

    Oooo, Death Valley! I hope you’re going through in the morning when it’s not too hot yet. And watch out for coyotes. They tend to follow the car, begging for food.

    My fave summer dessert is Chapman’s frozen Yogurt, topped with fresh raspberries, blueberries, and a drizzle of apricot ice cream sauce (recipe is here…http://tinyurl.com/29erg9t)

    Have fun! Sounds like you are having a GREAT trip.

  26. Evelyne@cheapethniceatz August 3, 2010 at 12:08 #

    Pineapple Cream Pie… but then, I would welcome that in the dead of winter as well. Too tough a question; my judgement is clouded by visions of obesity. Yikes!!! I’m withdrawing from the competition. ;-)

  30. Laura August 3, 2010 at 13:33 #

    I tweeted: http://twitter.com/LauraDowns
    I would have to say gelato, hands down! I can’t even count how many flavours I tried last summer in Italy, lol. Chapman’s frozen yogurt is also a good (somewhat more healthy) treat as well.

  31. Heather August 3, 2010 at 13:51 #

    At the moment, I’m in love with the PC Tiger Tail ice cream. I used to have it all the time as a kind at my local ice cream place! Aside from them, some angel food cake with fresh, local strawberries and cream on top.

  32. Heather August 3, 2010 at 13:52 #

  57. Tonya @ What's On My Plate August 3, 2010 at 21:51 #

    I tweeted! (sounds naughty!)

    My favourite summer dessert would have to involve some local summer goodness. I’m thinking a flaky pie crust bursting with a juicy filling of local cherries. Pie isn’t complete without a scoop of ice cream so I’d churn out a batch of toasted coconut ice cream to go on top.

  58. Katherine Zhang August 3, 2010 at 22:00 #

    Chocalate ice cream with raspburry

  59. Tracy August 3, 2010 at 22:17 #

    Greetings from beautiful Vancouver Island. I am so delighted that you finally have a contest that I can enter.

    My favourite summer dessert is, hands down, a fresh raspberry cake which originally called for sour cream. I substituted low fat yogurt which didn’t alter the flavour or richness but made me feel as if I was getting away with something devilish and wicked delicious.

    The icing is a butter icing made with raspberries instead of milk or cream. Soooooo yummy. Recipe available if you want it.

    Cheers
