Farewell to Summer

The end of summer is near and today I am saying goodbye with a few photos from Salt Lake City’s farmers market.

What were some of your favorite summer memories? Of course some of ours revolved around food. Here are a few of our favorite summer recipes.

Peach Scones
Lemon Raspberry Bars
Strawberry Mango Jicama Salad
Strawberry Rhubarb Galette
Gianduja Gelato
Black Bean and Mango Tostadas

I hate saying farewell to summer, but I am excited for the fall. I am looking forward to football, crisp air, apples, sweatshirts, colorful leaves, and fall baking.

Now for some updates-I recently attended a blogging trip with Sam’s Club. I posted a few photos from my trip on our Facebook fan page. Check them out! It was a great time. Thank you Sam’s Club for inviting me. Make sure you are a fan of Two Peas and Their Pod, I have a giveaway coming up for Facebook fans soon:)

Also, some exciting news to share-we are teaming up with Thermador! I will be contributing posts to the Thermador blog on an ongoing basis. Check out my first post about our kitchen remodel. We are happy to be a part of the Thermador team.

Have a great weekend! Come back Monday for a new sweet treat. I have a good one for you:)

Get the best of the best!

  7. How exciting for you to be teaming up with Thermador! Can’t wait to see your finished kitchen. Yes, it’s sad to see summer go, but fall and winter are exciting, too. And summer will be back!
    I only made it to the Downtown SLC Farmer’s Market once. It was really fun, huge and lots of yummy things to see. I didn’t buy too much because it was a long walk back to the car and I only had four hands (my son was with me.) Great photos!

  8. congrats on pairing up with Thermador! that’s something i could only dream of…can’t wait to read your posts there too!

  9. Beautiful photos! They are making me excited because summer is just around the corner down here. It has been a long winter!!

  10. Those raspberries look incredible!! I’ll miss summer and all its tomatoes and berries, too, but I’m excited for apples; squash; hot coffee, tea, and cider; and pumpkins, too!!

  11. It’s such a bittersweet time of year. I will miss summer, but love the pumpkins and apples of fall, and the citrus of winter. Beautiful photos and congrats on all your new gigs!

  12. These photos are beautiful. I’m sad to see Summer go, but I’m really looking forward to Fall too!

    BTW, that quesadilla sounds so good- I think I’ll try it with apples. yum!

  13. I miss that change in season. Even though I’ve been away from that region for two years now, I always think about the weather and seasons. I probably would be packing up for a weekend trip in hopes to see golden aspens and a light dusting of snow on the higher peaks…but I’ll just have to suffer w/ the TX heat for another month or so. :/
