I hope you had a nice Labor Day! These past couple weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind with work and some leisure travel. B and I were actually in Napa during the earthquake…kind of terrifying. Excluding “napaquake”, the trip was just what I needed to relax and recharge. (Especially because it involved the above (insert dramatic pause) chocolate-dipped salted caramel macaron from Bouchon Bakery…you guys…omg.
Given all of the recent travel, I haven’t been baking up as many treats (but I still have some coming this week), so we are going to do the round-up out of order this week. Given that we are entering the best part of summer (in my mind), which is to say the part that is about to be fall, some of these recipes are just begging to be made in order to soak up the last bits of the delicious summer bounty.
Weeknight Cobbler for Two from Joy the Baker
Good-NESS this looks delicious. Plus, it’s individualized, which means I can’t say that I’m making dessert and that I will “bring it in to work”, but really just hoard it all myself.
Mojito Ice Cubes also from Sugar and Cloth by way of Lulus
Because porch-sipping and weekend day drinking don’t only happen in the summer (Plus, gives you the taste of a mojito without the alcohol, if that’s your jam)
Cherry Preserves with Honey and Rosemary from Food in Jars
Canning and preserving was one thing that I really wanted to get into this summer, but still haven’t. Maybe it’s going to be on my agenda for the weekend because I want to do is spread these preserves on toast with some really good, really fresh goat cheese. Yum!
