10 Desserts That Made My Summer Special
So last night I was browsing Pinterest, (you know, ahem, for research purposes ;)) and it was really evident that everyone's looking ahead to fall. Lots of cozy recipes for chili, pumpkin, soups, apple cinnamon, maple-brown butter-bourbon-salted-caramel-OMG-yum! I was totally dying over here.
I'm as psyched as anybody to get into the autumn swing! And now that I've baked up a recipe (or two) for pretty much all of my favorite seasonal summer fruits, I'm ready to jump in with both feet.

But first I just wanted to do a quick recap of all the yummy things that helped make this summer so special for me and my loved ones (click on the pic to view the recipe):
Strawberry Rhubarb Tarts
Raspberry Cream Scones with Rosewater Glaze
Peach Amaretto Tart
Baked Blueberry Sour Cream Donuts
Chocolate Almond Panna Cotta with Cherry Sauce
Chocolate Dipped Blackberry Buttermilk Popsicles
Chocolate Mint Cookie Bars
Blueberry Brown Betty
Plum Biscoff Shortcakes
Easy Blackberry Jam
Whew! I think I can safely say we ate summer to its fullest.
I'm sure all the other food bloggers out there can feel me when I say, my life pretty much revolves around the kitchen. Every spare minute I get, I'm happy to spend cooking/baking/experimenting with food. And not only do I enjoy developing my own recipes for this blog, but I also really love trying other bloggers' recipes as well!
Right now, I have my sights set on fun foods that make great on-the-go breakfasts for my kiddos. Big boy starts first grade this year, and he's hopping on the bus bright and early every day. Sometimes it's hard to make time for a healthy breakfast, but I'll be busily baking up all of these fabulous recipes, from some of my favorite blogs, to make sure he gets a great start every day:
1. Breakfast Pizza by Club Narwhal
2. Chocolate Zucchini Waffles by Honey & Figs
3. Honey Vanilla Parfaits by Mom on Timeout
4. Glazed Vanilla Donut Muffins by Crunchy Creamy Sweet
