Mother's day is over so I have a month to think about Father's day...menu/baking.  My house, men think dessert is most important.  I don't like reservations for holidays & will rack my brain to please all pallets.  BBQ is good for a nice day but dessert menu must have several items & different ideas to transport in case we decide to have out of the house.  One year we picnicked in the park on a pleasant day.  Taking out dessert, people nosied up to our table googling desserts with few asking questions.  I felt like a momma bear protecting her cubs.  After 10 minutes we literally had to move.  The kids wanted to eat in the car, my husband wanted to eat and drive away.  With coercement, I managed a table at the other end of the grounds where no one was.  We ate, finished our day & left peacefully.  It was very funny!

In this era of quick and easy dining, my homemade desserts are ALWAYS a hit. And it's fun to watch people who usually never touch dessert, gobble up the sweets I serve.

At this house, there is always something in the oven.....breakfast, dinner, and of course, desserts (mostly the latter!).  I much prefer home-cooked meals....however.....if I have been busy cleaning, etc. and have sapped all my energy, we do make our way to a local eatery.  Right now it is "pie time".  Fruits are beginning to surface, and everyone likes pie!!  Hubby's birthday is Friday, so that calls for cupcakes....his favorite is, of course, chocolate.  This house is never without Nestle's....in every available kind....bits, cocoa, etc.  We are true Chocoholics!

I bake whenever the mood strikes me and I have time.  That's at least twice a month on a weekend.  I usually ask what they want and I get "whatever you want to make".

I usually bake at least two or three times a week to take treats to people I care about.  Now that the weather is getting warmer it's not so easy or as much fun.  It gets sooooooo hot in my kitchen and I know the air conditioner works harder than I do  Wink !!

I found a recipe for a Shaker Lemon Pie that was on Americas Test Kitchen or it could have been Cooks Country.
I am going to make the pie for desert on Sunday, a request from a friend for her birthday.  If it is good I will post the recipe and share it with all of you.
This time of year lemons seem to taste good a bit lighter than some of the other things that I have baked lately.  Not to mention after making 5 Carrot cakes I am "carroted" out.n I think my food processor is permanently stained orange.

I love to bake and create different things.  However, since the kids moved out(and don't come over as much) it does pose a problem.....making too much for just the two of us.  My husband isn't that crazy about desserts anyway, he would rather have a second helping of whatever is for dinner lol.  And now, since I had most of my bottom teeth pulled, I can't eat much anyway so baking will probably be put off for a while.  But maybe I can find somebody who would love a cake or an apple pie to take home with them lol.

During the warmer months I make a lot of crepes filled with fresh fruit and topped with whipped cream.They are fast to make and everyone here really loves them.Friut pies are also well received here.There are so many nobake desserts you never really have to turn on your oven during the warmer months.I still like my homemade bread and I do bake that all year.

Because of all the graduations I'm baking --- baking myself in this kitchen Tongue out .
Sunday night after church we're having a dinner for a remarkable young man heading off to Bible college -- he plans to be a minister.
My contribution to the dinner is broccoli salad and 5 bean salad .... but I'm making tons of cookies for the family expecting people from all over the states.
