I am so not feeling like baking right now…which is really odd for me and somewhat discouraging since I still want to keep up with this little ole’ blog project of mine. I’m not even quite sure what to blame for my lack of baking zeal. My ever expanding pregnancy waistline probably has something to do with it. Watching the scale creep gradually upward is somewhat disheartening…even if it is for an admittedly noble, and adorable, reason! I’m also having difficulty standing for long periods of time…due to that previously stated adorable reason, so my kitchen fun is sadly limited.
So, in keeping with the season (as well as my burgeoning self), Becky Bakes is going to be focusing more on light and fresh fare for the next several weeks. Of course, I can’t promise there won’t be an occasional indulgence thrown in…you’ll have to wait and see;-)
While gleaning the web this morning for some healthier, but still sweet, inspiration I came across some recipes that I just had to share. So here are some delicious looking yummies to feast your eyes (and the your belly!) on.
Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble by lolfoodie – Looks scrumptious! We are still a few weeks away from strawberry season but I cannot wait!!
Strawberry Rhubarb Compote by Two Tarts – Oh goodness, again with the strawberries and rhubarb…love it!!
Iced Lemonade by Cheeky Kitchen – Love her blog and dying to try her lemonade!
Steph’s Summer Salad by Taste and Tell – This looks so healthy and delicious.
Strawberry Shortcake by Epicurean Mom – Strawberries again but how can one resist this classic summer dessert. This one looks swoon-worthy.
Hang on….I’ll be back soon with something light and refreshing of my own!
