In summer’s wake, don’t make the mistake to bake. Instead, counter the heat with a treat that’s not oven-tweaked. Okay, we totally get that it’s not the right time to rhyme! But we don’t lie when we cry that we do try but God knows why this habit refuses to die. So sorry for the trouble, and before it becomes double we’ll just begin with the dishes everyone wishes to savour in summers. For in summers, sweat and heat take away all the fun in the kitchen and since lengthy dishes drive you mad, everyone considers baking bad!
