Happy Monday! Can you believe that later this week will be July? And more importantly July 4th! We are officially past the mid point of the year which means the holiday season of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas is creeping closer and closer!

When did that happen!? Sheesh!

Before we start to get carried away with halloween candy and jingle bells lets bring it back to the fact that we are almost in July shall we?

When I think of July what comes to mind is fireworks, fun summer bbq’s, pool time, popsicles, and family reunions or gatherings! It’s the time of the year that everyone makes time to get together, slow down, enjoy the weather, stay up way to late and stuff their faces with s’mores! It’s what makes summer so magical!

Growing up I made so many memories during summer. I can remember playing kickball in our swimsuits, riding around on our bikes till the sun went down, walking up to the ice cream shop near our house for a cool treat, and smelling the heavenly scent of my mom grilling dinner in our backyard. Summer was the best!

No school, just fun! Sure it probably stressed mom out to have us home and running around all summer, but the memories we made were priceless! Family get togethers are the best, I just wish we had more cousins that were around our age. My brother and I were the youngest of all the cousins so we spent alot of time playing with each, which we were already familiar with! 🙂 But the food was incredible because of all the “wanna be chefs” in our family!

Todays recipe is all about celebrating fun, summer, and family! One of my favorite desserts growing up was strawberry shortcake. You know.. the angel food cake cups filled with macerated strawberries and topped with fresh whip cream. THE BEST, right!

  1. Your childhood summers, sound so much like mine did! They were simplicity and innocence at the best (and yes, tons of great food!) I love that you took what I think of as a Christmas treat and turned it into the perfect summer dessert–it is the best way to have Christmas in July 🙂

    1. Simplicity and fun is the best kinda summer in my book, glad you had that same experience Kristen AND that you enjoyed my fun twist on a classic recipe! 🙂 These grilled peaches are no joke.. so good!

  2. This is such a cool twist using the shortbread bars. I love it! And you’re right, summer time fun was always the best. I often ponder on my childhood summer memories and hope I can give that same experience to my future kids some day.
