Summer Nectarine Cake

Summer Nectarine Cake

I love to use fresh fruit in cobblers and crisps during the summer because they’re so easy to make and are also a great way to showcase in-season fruit.

Honey Cornbread Muffins

Honey Cornbread Muffins

Although cornbread can be a fairly hearty food, I find that I often bake it during the summertime. It is easy to make a batch of cornbread – so you don’t need to spend a long time in the kitchen, or have the oven on for hours – and it can be served with just about anything. I like cornbread a little bit on the ... Read More »
