Banana Cream Pie
This deliciously creamy pie uses a store-bought graham cracker crust, premade whipped topping, and an instant pudding mix for the ultimate easy-to-make pie.

How To Make Key Lime Pie
Step 1: Make The Crust
Combine the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Stir with a fork first, and then your hands until the mixture is well combined.
Using your fingers and the bottom of a measuring cup or glass, press the crumbs firmly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-in deep-dish pie pan. The crust should be about 1/4-in thick. (Hint: do the sides first.)
Bake the crust for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Then let the crust cool a bit while you make the filling.
Step 2: Make the Filling
Begin by zesting the limes.
It’s best to use a rasp grater, which is a long, skinny tool that works well for grating hard cheeses and zesting citrus.
Juice the limes using a citrus reamer, then combine the juice with the sweetened condensed milk, yogurt, and lime zest.
Pour the filling into the cooked graham cracker crust.
Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the filling is almost set.
Let the pie cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, then place in the refrigerator to chill thoroughly, about 3 hours.
Step 3: Make the Topping
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or beaters), beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add the confectioners’ sugar and beat until medium peaks form. (Alternatively, the cream can be beaten by hand with a whisk.) Top the chilled pie with whipped cream and decorate with lime slices and zest.

No celebration is complete without a sweet treat, but when it's hot outside even the keenest baker would prefer not to turn on the oven. Our recommendation: Keep the kitchen cool by making one of our no-bake treats, such as the No-Bake Chocolate-Crust Cheesecake that's pictured here. You'll find that once you master a delicious dessert you can make without the use of your oven, you'll reach for the recipes time and time again. And they're certainly not just for summer: Whether your holiday dinner is monopolizing all of the precious cooking space or you're simply not in the mood to bake on a Saturday night in, these no-oven-required recipes are easy and tempting any time of the year.
Some of these no-bake desserts can be made quickly and served immediately. Others require making ahead, a boon for the host as this means the work is done ahead of the party. Delicious crowd-friendly options like icebox cakes and tarts and no-bake cheesecakes can be taken out of the refrigerator when it's time to dig in. The versatility of these no-bake desserts makes it easy to find something delicious based on your schedule.
Cheesecake is one of the most popular no-bake desserts. Traditional cheesecake requires oven time and a water bath to bake in, but the no-bake variety is much easier. The recipes leave out egg yolks for food safety but keep the richness intact. Try our No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake, which is topped with a gorgeous syrup cherry topping, or wow your guests with Individual No-Bake Cheesecakes.
If you're hosting a dinner party and want to serve a showstopping dessert, consider crème brûlée—it won't be the traditional baked custard, though. Instead, we suggest opting for one of our no-bake versions: The custards for both our No-Bake Chocolate-Eggnog Crème Brûlées and No-Bake Espresso Crème Brûlées set up in the refrigerator, rather than the oven, but you'll find that they still maintain that luscious, creamy interior. The only heat needed is a final swish of a blow torch to achieve a thin sheet of caramelized sugar just waiting to be cracked into.
All of these recipes are easy to make, easy to enjoy, and completely oven-free!
Silk-skinned and sunrise-colored, splitting deliciously along a ripe seam to reveal a pit neatly nestled in velvet, apricots are an ephemeral highpoint of summer's sequential stone fruit season. Their appearance at market is close to fleeting if you are enjoying regionally-grown fruit. Pay attention, then pounce as soon as they arrive.
At their best, apricots are tender, sweetly juicy, and perfumed, with a gentle but tongue-edging sense of acid. If you do discover apricot perfection (your nose and tongue will tell you), you should simply sit down quietly somewhere and eat them one by one, with no embellishments. Savor every drop of juice. It is a precious thing, this moment of apricot ripeness, and you will remember it.
When harvested and eaten too early, apricots are more crisp and sour, but they can be transformed by cooking: So, if your apricots are tart, plan to use them in desserts or to make jam. Even disappointingly insipid fruit, bred less for flavor and more for appearance and for enduring refrigerated journeys across the continent (or from another hemisphere), can be redeemed. Who has not been seduced by their vivid, supermarket curves as an interminable winter stretches on? It is always fun to cheat and buy apricots from climates whose summers coincide with our coldest months (and darkest thoughts).
Whether you are fortunate enough to celebrate an apricot glut, want to honor a coveted ripe handful, or have succumbed to out-of-season treasure at the local supermarket, here we have curated our best fresh apricot recipes to offer you snacks, drinks, bakes, broils, and more.

Joanna Gaines’ No-Bake Strawberry Pie Recipe Tastes Like Summer And Is So Easy To Make
This berry-sweet dessert has us wishing for warm weather!
Summer is around the corner and it’s time to start whipping up your favorite seasonal treats. Joanna Gaines has a recipe for an amazing no-bake strawberry pie that will instantly transport you to a warm and sunny day, even if it’s still cloudy and gray in your neck of the woods.
Although it looks fancy and tastes divine, this super-summery dessert comes together in just 20 minutes — and then it needs to set in the freezer for about six hours or up to overnight. Throughout much of the country, peak strawberry season arrives in June, so if you’re having trouble tracking down a fresh pint, you could also sub in frozen strawberries.
Because there’s no baking required, it’s perfect for making on a hot day when you don’t even want to think about turning on the oven. All that’s needed is some sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, powdered milk, strawberries, lemon juice, vanilla extract and a graham cracker crust.
Gaines’ new cookbook, “Magnolia Table, Volume 2,” was released on April 7.
In celebration, the “Fixer Upper” star has been sharing tutorials for some of her recipes on YouTube.
On March 19, she posted a tutorial for making her chocolate chip cookies, sharing that her family baked them while home together during quarantine:
Although she was set to go on tour for her new book, her plans were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Instead, in a YouTube video entitled “Magnolia Table, Vol. 2 Book Tour (at home edition),” the Gaines family celebrated the launch in their own “unique, stir-crazy kind of way.”
Aww! Since Gaines was not able to greet fans across the country, her kids and husband subbed in as her customers coming to get their books signed, complete with kooky costumes and some impressive acting skills. They sure know how to make some lemonade out of lemons!
Speaking of lemonade, if you need a tasty seasonal beverage to wash down your strawberry pie, Gaines also has some great recipes for infused summer lemonades. Blackberries, watermelon, peach and more are all great flavors to accent this classic summer thirst-quencher.
