In the summer, the one fruit that comes to mind is a ripe peach. The sweetness is the best part of the summer. In these peach white chocolate cookies, the sweetness comes out and makes these soft and chewy cookies a summer staple. The cookies take no time at all to prepare and bake within 15 minutes. The cookies also make a fantastic ice cream sandwich with vanilla ice cream pressed between two of these cookies.
There is one thing in Minnesota that every get together has, it is a classic bar. A classic shortbread cookie crust topped with typically a soft and chewy batter baked firm. It's a classic desert that every one loves and these chocolate almond bars do not disappoint. The classic shortbread crust is topped with a fudgey chocolate batter that is set perfectly on top with almonds throughout. They are full of rich goodness that everyone will love.
As life is getting more and more back to normal and being a lot more busy, it seems like I am always looking for a snack that will get me going and not packed with sugar and salt.

One of the things I love is cornbread muffins right out of the oven. They are packed with a rich and buttery flavor, however what is even better is these honey blueberry muffins. The muffins have a slight crunch and savory flavor of the cornmeal make a perfect backdrop for blueberries, which burst as they bake, creating pockets of juice that keep the muffins tender. They are extremely simple to prepare, about 15 minutes to mix everything up and under 30 minutes to bake.
As spring is here, one of the first things that come up in the garden is rhubarb. I feel like rhubarb gets a bad reputation, but I think its a great ingredient that adds get flavor and texture to sweets and desserts. In these raspberry and rhubarb muffins, each bite is packed with flavor from both the raspberries and the rhubarb. The muffins come out with a great red speckle throughout the muffins making them look delicious. Making it a great morning breakfast or snack throughout the day.
As this spring has been cool and rainy so far this year here in MN, there is nothing like a smell of cooked cinnamon to warm you up.

The bread comes out soft and packed with raisins and cinnamon sugar all throughout the loaf. The bread is amazing toasted with just butter, honey, or peanut butter spread over it.

In these blueberry and lemon sweet rolls, the rolls come out soft and packed with sweet blueberries and lemon flavor. Then on top of that, it is covered with a sweet lemon infused cream cheese frosting that oozes down the sides of each of the roll.

All topped with a creamy cream cheese frosting.
In these carrot cake swirl bars, it has the classic flavors of a carrot cake, but with a orange infused cheese cake batter swirled throughout the bars.

If you are a fan of the peanut butter cookies, you will love these sweet and fun sweet pretzels. They are packed with peanuts in and out.
