Monday Morning Review: 5 Perfect Summer Desserts

Yes, I’ve made a great deal of dough from my fiction, but I never set a single word down on paper with the thought of being paid for it … I have written because it fulfilled me … I did it for the buzz. I did it for the pure joy of the thing. And if you can do it for joy, you can do it forever. ~ Stephen King


I never in a million years thought I would be quoting Stephen King. I couldn’t help myself; his words express exactly how I feel (except the making a lot of dough part, sigh…) .  Seriously though, I absolutely am in love with what I do.  I get a thrill creating, gardening and taking photographs. I then have the privilege of putting it all down on paper and sharing it with you. I am pretty sure nothing I have done in the workplace has ever given me this much satisfaction.

I am thankful for the talents God has given me and watch in amazement as He brings everything together. In gratitude I desire to give back to the beautiful community I have been allowed to participate in. Starting today and continuing every Monday I will be sharing some of the things I have appreciated in the bloggy community from the previous week. Recipes, gardening, crafts, diy; everything will be on the table.  

Monday Morning Review: 5 Perfect Summer Desserts

I am excited to get started so here we go! 5 perfect summer desserts!



Monday Review: Grown-Up Mixed Berry Shortcake

Grown  Up Mixed Berry Shortcake from Erica’s Recipes is not only beautiful, it opens up new ways of thinking on what a berry shortcake could be. I love how she poaches the fresh berries in wine. Two thumbs up for this perfect summer dessert.

Monday Morning Review: Lemon Italian Ice

What could be more refreshing for dessert than a Lemon Italian Ice from three kids and a fish. Sweet and tart all at the same time. It is sure to please on a hot summer’s day.

Monday Morning Review: S'moreo Ice Cream Cookie Sandwhich

Oreo’s, chocolate, marshmallows and ice cream… oh my. Step away from my S’moreo Ice Cream Sandwich! These beautiful and tasty treats come from This Silly Girl’s Life. I think I want to hang out in her kitchen for awhile!

Monday Morning Review: Rustic cherry Tart

Cherries are in season and what better way to put them to good use then with a lovely Rustic Cherry Tart  made by About a Mom. Add a scoop of vanilla and count me in!

Monday Morning Review: Coconut Raspberry Ice Pops

No self-respecting review of 5 perfect summer desserts would be complete without an icy cold treat. What better way to represent summer than Coconut Raspberry Ice Pops from Mama’s High Strung. I love the use of coconut water and coconut milk in these pops; adding raspberries, Genius!

Monday Morning Review: 5 Perfect Summer Desserts Thanks for stopping by Pure Grace Farms today and following along with the Monday Morning Review. It’s great to see all the  beautiful things around the neighborhood. Who know’s what lies ahead in the coming week. Whatever it is I’m sure it’s delicious.
