20 New Favorite Recipes [Summer 2012]

This past weekend we made the official transition from summer to fall. The days are getting shorter, the air is getting crisper, and the food is getting warmer. I make so many new recipes over the course of a month, not to mention a season, that some are bound to fall through the cracks. Since January, I’ve gone back at the end of each season and put a little star next to the 20 recipes I made during that period that were especially memorable. Maybe you missed a few of them, or like to see which ones were my personal favorites; below are my favorite recipes from this past summer!

1. Baklava

2. Banana Split Ice Cream Cake

3. Beer-Battered Zucchini Fries

4. Blueberry Jam

5. Blueberry-Lemon Buttermilk Bundt Cake

6. Buckeye Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

7. Chocolate Cream Pie

8. Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars

9. Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

10. Filled Raisin Cookies

11. Homemade Choco-Bliss Snack Cakes

    Ooo a pretzel dog is always a favorite for me, but I am a sucker for peanut butter chocolate – so those buckeye cookies and peanut butter cheesecake bars top my list!

    I’m so glad the peach coffee cake made it into your favorites. I have loved it for a few years now. I can’t wait to try the baklava. The best things I made this summer were your Blackberry Pie Bars and my Caramel Blondies (The link if you’re interested: http://piesandplots.net/caramel-blondies/) which are totally insane and perhaps the best thing I’ve ever made. Hopefully fall will bring tons more baking inspiration for everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

    How in the world did I miss the homemade Klondike bars the first time around? Those are so getting made this week!
    This year my favorite summer recipe was my mom’s old fashioned strawberry shortcake. But who am I kidding? Strawberry shortcake is my favorite recipe period. http://bakeeatrepeat.blogspot.com/2012/07/strawberry-shortcake-cottage-pudding.html
