20+ No Bake Desserts

Hi folks. A bunch of us rad bloggers joined forces to bring you a monthly round up. Why? Because we love you, and don't want to worry about you all sweating your butts off. Keep cool. Leave the oven off. No bake for the win! If you are like me you avoid turning the oven on at all costs during the summer months. My house is brick and I swear it retains heat like an oven.
