Peach Dutch Baby

Summer is winding down and I am trying to indulge in all of the summer fruits that I can before they are out of season.  It’s been quite a while since I made a dutch baby so I decided it was time to share another  recipe for one on the site.  The first time I made one, it was chocolate with raspberries. With peaches in season I decided to do a traditional dutch baby and add a peach topping.  This…

Cherry Buttermilk Ice Cream

Who’s ready for the easiest ice cream recipe ever? Look no further than this no churn cherry buttermilk ice cream! In full disclosure I have to admit I couldn’t wait to get an ice cream maker a few years ago, but I’ve only used it once. Why? It takes up way too much room in my freezer because my dad insists on giving me a cooler full of meat every time I go home to visit my parents. I refuse…

Blackberry Cobbler with Lemon Biscuit Topping

Summer is here and you know what that means.  Time to bake with all of the fresh fruit that’s in season.  So many fruits to choose from, it’s hard to decide where to start. I decided to go with one of my favorite berries, blackberries.  I love making cobblers and they are one of the most easy and delicious desserts to pull together during the summer. I added a refreshing touch to the biscuits by adding in some lemon zest.…

Blueberries and Cream Scones

A few years ago I had a slight obsession with baking scones. Who am I kidding? I still do. I have had my eyes on a version that included cream instead of buttermilk and butter, but kept putting off making the recipe. After my friend Linda gave me those freshly picked blueberries a few weeks ago, I knew I was finally going to make these cream scones with those berries. I was really pleased with how these turned out and…

Blueberry Peach Galette

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I did a sneak peek of this galette over the weekend. I was so excited to share this recipe because it includes a whole lot of local ingredients. The honey I used was harvested here in Georgia  and sold at a tiny farmer’s market on my way home from work.  The blueberries were picked by one of my good friend Linda’s cousin and the peaches were grown here in Georgia as well.…

Blueberry Muffin Cake

I’m a huge fan of blueberries or any berry if I’m really honest. My mom loves blueberries too and she visited last week so I wanted to make something for her that I knew she’d really like.  I ran across this blueberry muffin cake recipe a few weeks ago and I kept it tucked away until my mom came into town.  I made this cake the day before my mom arrived and we enjoyed it for breakfast the next day.…

Chocolate Sugar Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

If you didn’t already know, I am a huge fan of ice cream. I eat it all year long and in the summer I probably eat more than I should to keep cool. I love a good ice cream sandwich too,  so I decided to combine on one my favorite cookie recipes with ice cream. I made these chocolate sugar cookies for the first time in the early days of Jem of the South and it’s been my go to…

Mixed Berry Crumble

Summer is in full swing and that means that all of my favorite summer fruits are at their peak! I’m a huge fan of just about any type of berry, peaches, plums and cherries. You name the fruit, if it’s in season, I’m typically eating it as a snack or in a summer dessert.   What I love about using fruits in baking is that when they are in season they are at their sweetest. I love allowing the natural…
