The whole family will go bananas when they taste Margie Haen’s fizzy concoction of frozen berries and grape juice. Let’s see those smiling purple lips. —Margie Haen, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin

Grilled Bananas Foster

Grilled Bananas Foster

I worked at a Bed and Breakfast a few years back and Bananas Foster was a dessert that they often served with dinner. This wonderful version can be prepared on your outdoor grill. Once it is grilled, just add ice cream and you have a heavenly dessert without heating up your kitchen. — Kathleen Hedger, Fairview Hts, Illinois

The best time for this dessert is mid-summer, when the blueberries are thick in our northern woods. Red raspberries can be added to the mixed berries, too, to brighten up the patriotic colors.—Anne Theriault, Wellesley, Massachusetts

If you're a fan of strawberry-rhubarb pie, you'll want to try this twist on the classic. Here, blueberries provide the sweet counterpoint to the tart rhubarb, with mouthwatering results. —Steve Gyuro, Franklin, Wisconsin

This pie is a showstopper. It's very refreshing and tart. I get frequent requests from my gang to make it. Normally I am a chocolate lover, but this pie makes me forget about chocolate.—Callie Palen-Lowrie, Louisville, Colorado

Summer Harvest Tart

Summer Harvest Tart

One of my favorite bakeries makes this scrumptious tart that uses fall and summer fruit, so I created my own version. I like to serve it warm with whipped cream or ice cream and with a cup of coffee on a cool autumn night.—Sarah Knoblock, Hyde Park, Indiana

Makeover Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Roll

This dessert is so convenient to make ahead of time and keep in the freezer for company. Cake and ice cream make it the best of two worlds! The original recipe's caramel sauce was high in fat and calories. Our Taste of Home Test Kitchen makeover version tastes great—and makes a nice topping for ice cream, too.
