Favorites: Summer Berry Recipes

Greetings to all the foodies out there!

It’s hard for me to believe that there’s only about a month until the calendar once again turns to Autumn. To help me celebrate the offerings of the current season, I’ve decided to periodically post a collection of favorite recipes that I adore and I hope you will too. 

To kick things off – I bring you the Summer berry edition. Enjoy!

Strawberry Cake

Strawberry Cake

I’m still waiting for the day that a strawberry recipe is going to disappoint me. Even this low-key strawberry cake got rave reviews when I baked it up for an Easter family gathering. Ever since that meal, it’s been put on the permanent list of items I MUST bake again!

Quinoa Breakfast Cereal with Fruit 

Quinoa Breakfast Cereal with Fruit

Some of my favorite food items are from breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day after all! Even if I was skeptical how much I’d enjoy a quinoa breakfast cereal at first, the taste of this dish won me over. Plus, it’s low-fat, gluten-free, lactose-free, and a very healthy oatmeal alternative.

Fresh Fruit Tart

Fruit Tart

This fruit tart has a special place in my heart. You see, I was on a mission when I started baking them and only until my third iteration did I taste success (quite literally). A couple of years later, this is still my go-to recipe for a lighter dessert for fruit lovers. It’s a show stopper and the compliments always flow!

A New Beginning

“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” – Albert Einstein. 

Maybe mistake is a little harsh to describe my situation.  Back in February of 2012 I started a blog for Project Baking and nearly one year and five months later I have to bid it adieu.  It was a picture blog, or plog as I called it, and I created it with the intention of allowing the pictures of my baked creations to speak for themselves.  At the time I just wasn’t prepared for a traditional blog. I am now! I find myself going forth and setting up Pixel Baking where it should have been in the first place.

My hope is to get settled in over the next few weeks with recipes, tips, and stories from the kitchen for all of you to enjoy!
