We’ve been packing for weeks straight. Or well, it feels like that at least. The last few days have been the bulk of it, with a few past weekends as well. All that time (plus the fact that my KitchenAid and pans are nestled up into boxes) means that I haven’t baked a thing recently. That’s why my brain is going crazy with ideas. The produce is coming, and I’m ready for it. Here’s my summer baking wish list, featuring some fun new ideas from fellow bloggers!
June Baking Wish List
I’ll be just settling into a new kitchen, which means it’s a good time to stick to old favorites. I’ve got to test out the oven and figure out how I work. However, I won’t let that hold me back from experimenting with the early summer produce like strawberries, rhubarb, and cherries. June will be filled with some classics like a basic crumble and adventures like baking cherries into brownies!
July Baking Wish List
It’s peak season for cherries and berries, and this summer I’m thinking of trying to work with some of these in ways I haven’t before, like making a roll cake and a custard pie. I’m also expecting a boat load of zucchini to come in through the farm share, which will be a new adventure. July is the month I have the least scheduled plans, so hopefully that means plenty of time for baking!
August Baking Wish List
I am all about stone fruit for August, but in addition to peaches and plums (like ginger peach scones? yum!), I’m hoping to try a few savory dishes this month as well. I’m thinking of what I can do with tomatoes, since I know I prefer them cooked rather than raw, and a rustic tart sounds amazing. This is the month to wrap up the summer season, so it’s got to be good.
Summer Baking Essentials
Last year, I depended on some of my favorite kitchen tools to make plenty of tasty summer treats. And this year, I’ll be doing the same. Here are a few of my favorites.
