Sweet Sunday Six

I started this Sweet Sunday Six feature right as summer was really warming up, and you’ll see from the changes in color of the desserts I’ve featured exactly how much the season has changed.

Not a lot of time to chat today, too busy enjoying the City of Brotherly Love with some good friends – but still plenty of time to share these delicious treats!
