Recipes from other blogs that I thought looked especially delicious and that I thought you would like too:

Bavarian Soft Pretzel Rolls (Jane Deere)
I love, love, love soft pretzels. I must make these!

Chocolate Covered Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches (Good Life Eats)
I’m pretty sure that everyone needs to have these in their life. I know I do!

Fig Gelato (Philadelphia Cooking Examiner)
I keep meaning to try some type of fig ice cream since I love figs so much, and never get around to it. This looks delicious!

Peanut Butter S’mores Bars (i d l e w i f e)
I have made s’more nut bars before, but of course I think peanut butter makes just about everything better!

S’mores Cheesecake (Tracey’s Culinary Adventures)
Genius cheesecake! Graham cracker crust, milk chocolate cheesecake, and topped with a toasted marshmallow topping.

Have a delicious and safe holiday weekend! Happy 4th of July!

      Hi Lisa, Nope, no regatta this weekend. We had some family/friend picnics to attend, and generally not a fan of the massive crowds.

    The fig gelato was made by my friend Liz! I was at her home when she served it and it was really nice. Not too sweet and very refreshing!
