Super Summer Weekend Recipes

Honey Roasted Plums

Honey Roasted Plums with Fresh Thyme and Greek Yogurt

This weekend I want out!  Out of the kitchen and into a pool.  Out of these clothes and into a bathing suit.  Out of this computer and into a poolside book and cocktail situation.

I want you out too.  I don’t want you in the kitchen all weekend.  Don’t you think your time would be much better spent in sunglasses and a big floppy hat with your feet up by the pool!?  Good.  I’m glad we agree.

If you’re celebrating the 4th of July this weekend, be sure to say things like “Go America!” and watch colors explode in the sky if you can.  It’s fun.

If you’re not celebrating America’s independence… well heck… I think a weekend by the pool is still in order.  You just don’t have to scream things like “Go America!” unless you really want to.

Here are the recipes that will keep you out of all day kitchen adventures and magically keep your bellies satisfied.

Let us explore.

  1. …Deeelish! I think I’m gonna go for the S’mores Brownies to take to a bbq this Saturday – thanks for the recipe! :o)

    …Have a happy and safe July 4th Joy and thanks for having such an awesome site!

    …Blessings too… :o)

  2. Well, as I’m on the other side of the world and it’s the middle of winter here, I won’t be doing the pool thing!
    But there are definitely still recipes here for me – cookies are good in any weather!

  3. Dear Joy,
    I just don’t think there is any further need to look at Martha Stewart magazines or other food info sites. You seem to have everything right here at ‘Joy the Baker’. Every recipe you post I want to try. Your photos are incredible and the thoughts you share are fun and quite enjoyable to read. Thank-you!

  4. This summer weather is just perfect for pool laziness :) And with a tall glass of some of your delicious looking Raspberry Lemonade – who could resist? Happy Fourth of July :D
