Have you ever used baking as an excuse to get out of something else? I swear if I do it one more time to get out of cleaning the bathroom things are going to start growing in there. Too bad scrubbing bubbles really doesn't just do the job for me.
I have been baking though, just not much else. That includes not taking pictures, just a few snapshots on instagram. But! I tried out a few great recipes that I would love to share.
Like this one...
This is a simple blueberry cobbler and it's topped with a homemade honey-peach ice cream. I found the recipes while flipping though a taste of the south magazine. I made it for a July forth BBQ and everyone really enjoyed it. I think you have to have some kind of berry pie or cobbler in the summer it just screams summertime. I have been loving my ice cream maker this summer, and have been experimenting with different flavors. This honey-peach ice cream was delicious and plan on making it again soon.
I also made some lemon cupcakes for our 4th of July luncheon at work. I used Martha Stewart's lemon meringue cupcakes recipe for the cake and Sweetapolita's recipe for swiss meringue buttercream. (my all time favorite frosting) For the frosting, I just dyed a third red and a third blue put them all in a piping bag and swirled away, love the effect it gave them. The cupcakes were very fresh and lemony.
Now I'm off to go make some more ice cream. What's your favorite flavor?
