Summer is quickly coming to a close, and I, for one, am pretty excited.  Honestly, it’s the fall and winter that I LIVE for every year! I especially love BAKING during those months.  If you’ve been coming to That’s Just Jeni frequently, then you already know about my little obsession with baking.  Let’s pay homage to the summer, and summer flavors, by squeezing in a few more baking sessions 🙂  Here are some of my favorite summer treat creations:

      I love to bake cakes, finding recipes for old fashioned cakes like ones my Grandma made, but I also like new modern refreshing cakes too!

  3. With all that has been going on I have been baking and then giving away.
    People love the blueberry muffin bread and the oatmeal cookies that I make.

    I would say my favorite of all is the simple indulgence of biting into a fresh ripe peach. Juicy and sweet, peaches encapsulate summer

    I don’t bake much in the summer, so it’s lots of no bake cookies and watermelon for treats here. On occasion I’ll make some Aloha Brownies. They are a family favorite so it’s an often requested dessert. I got the recipe from an Pillsbury cook booklet MANY years ago.

    I am a sucker for a good bowl of ice cream during the summer months. I don’t love to bake during the summer just because of the heat outdoors and the added heat of the oven. But when I do bake something, it is usually something like lemon bars or biscuits for strawberry short cake!
