Here’s the plan. We’re shaking things up! It’s the weekend. Not only that, it’s the first day of summer. You know what that means. Summer concerts, wine nights, road trips, pool parties, roof decks, 8pm runs, farmer’s market, neon sunglasses, and iced coffee. And more guacamole eating than I care to admit.
This time last year I was making S’more Cookie Bars and working on my cookbook table of contents. And now, one year later, I’m doing book signings and still making s’more cookie bars. If you’ve tried them, then you know.
By the way, thank you to all my readers who came to the book signing on Thursday night! Lindsay, Victoria, Daniela, Allie, Stephanie, Lauren, Samantha, Mariah, Anne, Holly, Cindy, Katie and everyone else. There aren’t enough ways to say thank you.
Today I’m going to share some summer recipes I’m dying to make right now. Since my life revolves around food and baking and finding any excuse to talk about food and baking. Here are 7 recipes you should put on your “to-bake” list too.
Wait, do you have one of those? #myweirdlife
Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies – all that caramel!
Homemade Crab Pretzels – ok, these may sound a little strange but trust me on this. These homemade chewy, soft pretzels piled high with cheesy crab dip made with fresh jumbo lump crab. This is a Maryland staple.
Apple Blueberry Pie Bars – just what you need for fireworks and 4th of July.
Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Frosting – heck! yes! Protein packed frosting.
Glazed Strawberry Bread – the moistest loaf of bread! Full of sweet summer strawberries and topped with glaze. Amazing as muffins too – reduce baking time to about 18 minutes.
Oreo Cheesecake Bites – lil’ bites of heaven.
Sparkling Fruit Sangria – wouldn’t be summer without it!
Q: Have you tried any of these recipes? Thoughts?
