Summer Baking/Cooking List

I’ve been a lot more inspired to bake lately and am really looking forward to doing some seasonal baking projects this summer.

  1. Angel food cake {done!}
  2. Peach crisp/cobbler
  3. Jam
  4. Strawberry pie
  5. Berry crisp/cobbler {done!}
  6. Lemon bars
  7. Ice cream
  8. Coffee cake {berry or peach}
  9. Strawberry shortcake
  10. Apple crisp

I’ll be honest, summer is not my favorite time of year to cook. Come mid-July {hello!} I’m ready for fall foods. I so prefer cooking hearty meals. That being said, you really can’t beat the fresh produce available in the summer. A few of my favorite savory summer meals that I’m so looking forward to include:

  1. Panzanella!!!!! I just can’t wait. My favorite way to enjoy my favorites – tomatoes, basil, bread, mozzarella, olive oil and balsamic
  2. All the buratta – basically a caprese salad with buratta and maybe a baguette
  3. Pioneer Woman’s Smoked Gouda Pasta Salad – already on major repeat over here
  4. Grilled pizza
  5. Watermelon, feta & mint salad
  6. Bring on the BLTs {actually, I make BATs}
  7. All of the nectarines
  8. And all of the tomatoes
