22 Scrumptious Sorbet Recipes for Summer
Forget cake — let them eat sorbet! Yes, the sun is shining, and it’s time to think smoothies, popsicles and sorbet. And not the type that comes in those little plastic tubs. We’re talking the real thing: fresh fruit concoctions that make your tongue numb because you can’t stop cramming down spoonful after spoonful. It’s a pleasure to introduce 22 of the most delicious frozen treats you’ll eat all summer. Hey, sorbet!
4. Pomegranate Sorbet: While it’s good to have a standby sorbet recipe on file, sometimes we like to try something new. This peppy pomegranate treat wows with an unexpected tart flavor. (via Cafe Fernando)
6. Peach Sorbet: You’ve heard the saying, “pretty as a peach,” right? We never really quite understood that expression… until now. You’ll be incredibly proud of this peach treat that’s almost too pretty to eat. (via Food For My Family)
9. Three Ingredient Strawberry Sorbet: Got strawberries? We’ve got a recipe. This delightfully uncomplicated sorbet can be made in a flash with berries, sugar and a splash of lemon juice. (via Splash of Something)
10. Tart Cherry Sorbet: What’s the easiest, healthiest way to a tasty treat? Frozen cherry juice, simple syrup and a splash of lemon juice are all it takes to mix up the magic. Once you realize how incredibly easy sorbet is to make, you’ll wonder why you didn’t make it sooner! (via This Heart of Mine)
14. Berries Sorbet: This sorbet is so stunning we could eat it on the coldest of days. And we’ll crave it on the warmest. Puree the mixture for a smooth texture or skip this step if you like to bite into big, juicy berry chunks. (via Tartelette)
16. Meyer Lemon Sorbet: Lemons are used to add flavor to a variety of dishes but that doesn’t mean that they can’t stand alone. This sorbet is the perfect balance of tart and sweet. (via Spoonful of Flavor)
21. Tangerine Coriander Sorbet: Under normal circumstances, you’d have to pry our fingers from fresh, juicy tangerines. But these aren’t normal circumstances… not at all. We’d give up our fave fruit for a month just to have one taste of this sorbet. So delicious! (via Dessert for Two)

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
