Zagat Houston: Searching for the perfect ice-cold treat to cool off with this summer? Check out Zagat Houston's list of the best ice cream parlors in Houston. Indulge in Cloud10 Creamery's twist on the classic banana split featuring caramelized bananas with vanilla bean, chocolate and Nutella with marshmallow ice cream scoops topped with brown sugar, milk chocolate Magic shell, mixed berry jam, whipped cream, hot fudge sauce and candied pecans. Or stop by Hank's Ice Cream Parlor for a traditional scoop of old-fashioned ice cream.

The Pancake Princess: After attending the Paleo Kitchen cookbook signing (and being completely starstruck by the two authors), Erika Kwee made the blueberry coconut flour pancakes featured in the book. The coconut flour creates fluffy pancakes with crispy, browned edges - just as they should be. If you can't find arrowroot powder, Erika suggests using either a blend of cornstarch and sweet rice flour, or sweet rice flour with brown rice flour - the pancakes won't be paleo-friendly though. Make it a dessert by tossing in chocolate chips instead of blueberries.
