lemon-oatmeal lacies, and cowboy cookies (chock-full of nuts, coconut, and chocolate chunks) -- meet one clever wrapping idea: Line easy-to-make paper envelopes with waxed tissue, and seal with punched-paper labels.

If you let them, your kids would eat ice-cream sundaes for breakfast. Offer them the next best thing: sundaes made with yogurt, cereal, granola, and fresh fruit layered in tall sundae glasses and eaten with long spoons. For special occasions, such as the morning after the big slumber party, lay out a parfait buffet and let kids make their own.

Use a grapefruit knife to hull strawberries. The curved blade will cut away the stems smoothly while leaving most of the fruit intact.

When you're looking for a cool, healthy treat, think granita. Then take a shortcut and enjoy this easy version. The refreshing dessert is typically made by freezing a mixture of sugar, water, and flavorings and scraping it often as ice crystals form. This variation calls for just one ingredient and no scraping. Freeze any juice -- we used grapefruit -- in an ice cube tray; pliable silicone ones are ideal. When solid, pulse 3 to 5 cubes per serving in a food processor until shards form. Serve the granita in a pretty glass. (Or freeze it in an airtight container for a day or two.)

Surprise guests with sorbet masquerading as a favorite summer fruit. Mango sorbet has a particularly convincing color.
Scoop it into a dish, and top with a clove and lemon verbena leaves. Small mint or basil leaves also work well.
