 When I share on my own blog, {i love} my disorganized life, I try to share the kinds of recipes that taste fabulous, but aren’t completely time consuming. This No-Bake Lemon Chiffon is one of those recipes.

Now, I love chocolate, but there comes a point, namely when the temps here in Southern AZ reach 100+ degrees, that I just need something light and refreshing. Lemon fits that bill 10 times over.

Summer. Can I be honest with you? I sort of have a ‘love-hate’ relationship with this season. Let’s look at the pros and cons. We’ll do the cons first, since they’re the negatives, and I just want to get those out of the way.


  • it’s hot as Hades
  • there’s no school, so the kids are home all day {aka, from the moment they wake up until they go to bed, I don’t get a moments peace because my 17 {yes, seventeen} year old daughter is constantly asking me to make her food}
  • it’s hot as Hades
  • my kids get bored and want me to entertain them
  • it’s hot as Hades
  • Did I mention the heat?


  • no school=no getting up early to make lunches or to drive the kids to school
  • no helping with homework or science projects {can I just say that I hate homework?}
  • the kids stay up late watching TV, so they usually don’t get up until 2-3 pm
  • I love my pool, so any chance I get to take a dip and layout, you know I going to jump on it
  • vacation
  • no-bake lemon chiffon

Taking a closer look at this list, summer isn’t so bad after all- except for all that heat.
