Cookies From Around the World

Rob Bock

When summer draws to a close, we often find ourselves looking back at the summer memories we’ve made this year. Although holiday celebrations, convivial cookouts, and travels to new and exciting places are highlights of the year’s hottest months, we at Whisked! believe that can keep the spirit of summer alive throughout the year through the time-honored tradition of baking.

With that in mind, please allow us to take you on one last summer trip. No luggage or airline tickets are required — all you need is a kitchen, an oven, and an open mind for this virtual tour of... cookies from around the world!

The 9 Best BBQ Desserts

Jenna Huntsberger

Since before the dawn of civilization, humankind has harnessed the power of fire to enhance the quality and flavor of food. Even today, we’re hard-wired to love the smell of sizzling wood, the sight of wafting plumes of smoke, and the musky taste of charcoal that comes from food cooked over an open flame.

It should come as no surprise, then, that barbeques and cookouts are still a time-honored tradition celebrated by cultures around the world. In fact, you might have a barbeque scheduled in your calendar right now.

But here at Whisked!, we don’t believe that all glory belongs to the master of the flame. We know that the only things tastier than fire-cooked food are what comes after: the desserts. That’s why we’ve curated this list of 9 mind-blowingly good desserts that you can bring to brighten up any barbeque.
