Jaxson’s Ice Cream Re-Treat

It’s the hot, hot summertime, and that’s when we like to head up to Dania Beach and have some ice cream sundaes at Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlour and Restaurant. The trip has been a Bay Oaks tradition, just as Jaxson’s has been a tradition since 1956.

Everybody’s getting ready to tuck in.


Foreground: Mr. Luiz Melo and Ms. Anita Leon


Everyone extends a special “thank you” to our benefactor Mr. Luiz Melo for treating us to our sundaes.


Bay Oaks’ Tea Cake Recipe

A new addition to the desert menu is the Carrot Loaf. The Miami Herald Cook’s Corner featured the recipe in this week’s column.
