No-cook desserts for summer meal; It’s too hot to bake but not to enjoy a treat

Corned Beef and Green Beer? Must Be St. Pat’s

Homemade fudge, a long-time favorite

By Jean Redstone It’s probably one of the first fresh-from-the-stove sweets everyone remembers – the creamy, chocolate-y chunk of mouth-melting goodness your mom or grandmom or aunt gave you as a kid.
