The weather dictates the desserts we eat. In winter, we like like hearty warm desserts that soothe our bones from the biting wind outside. Something heavy, like the clothes we bundle up in, is encouraged. In summer, we like desserts that are light, for those sweltering days where anything hearty is our worst enemy. Light means cool, refreshing, and not too filling -- you know, so you have room for s'mores later on.
