GBBO – Tarte Au Citron

GBBO – Tarte Au Citron

Pastry week! So, fun fact – this is the first time I’ve ever made pastry. I wasn’t a big fan of pie growing up and so as I started baking it was never on my list of things to bake. So we’re what? Seven years into me baking regularly and this is my first pastry. Should be a fun challenge! First things first, this is Mary Berry’s recipe. Naturally. I do not own a big tart tin, because like I said, I don’t make pastry so I’m not well supplied….

Blueberry Lemon Lime Mint Scones

Blueberry Lemon Lime Mint Scones

Remember in my Mimosa Scones post when I said I actually hate scones, because I find them bready and dry and blah? And that those mimosa scones were a total exception because they were fruity and moist and crumbly and delicious? Well these blueberry lemon lime mint scones follow suit. I know, I know, that name is a mouthful. I got the inspiration for them from this blueberry smash cocktail. Sorry booze hounds, there’s no alcohol in this recipe, but it’s packed full of flavor. The lime, lemon and blueberry…

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Berry season continues! Seriously, how great is berry season? Honestly, for the last couple years I haven’t been baking much in spring/berry season because I have spring time SAD (it’s a real thing! It’s not just winter), and I lose all motivation. But not this year. This year I’m a berry baking fiend. So I bring you this super easy Lemon Blueberry Bread in honor of blueberry season. One of the partners at my agency told me a story about how someone he’s related to worked as a blueberry picker….

Blackberry Bramble Cake (Blackberry, Lemon and Gin Cake)

Blackberry Bramble Cake (Blackberry, Lemon and Gin Cake)

A Blackberry Bramble is such a refreshing summer drink. It’s made with blackberries, lemon and gin and is light, refreshing, fruity and delicious. And given the surplus of blackberries I currently had from the farmer’s market, I thought why not bake this into a delicious summer take on a rum cake, a blackberry bramble cake. As a base I used Sweet Pea’s Kitchen‘s rum cake recipe and got rid of the rum, instead using gin, adding lemon zest, lemon juice and mashed blackberries, then folding in chopped blackberries and changing…

Limoncello Lemon Chiffon Pie

Limoncello Lemon Chiffon Pie

Carolyne is back to bring you the final recipe of the Drunken Girl Scout project. And honestly, it looks delicious. To quote her email to me “this pie is stupid good. highly recommended even without the limoncello.” I hope you all enjoy her lemon chiffon pie! Before this recipe, I had never actually tasted a Savannah Smile. Debuting in 2012 to celebrate the Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary, it’s a crunchy, powder-sugar coated, wedge-shaped cookie that is not at all subtle about its lemon flavoring. Each cookie is like an entire…
