Hello Fall!

As another season approaches, the market begins to change.  Although, I feel like I am not quite ready for fall, so I am baking with all the summer that's left.  So, here's what's new!

For the weekend, I decided to go a little crazy at our Saturday market.  I had to stop myself from buying  every little "pie" pumpkin, and go enjoy every last piece of produce that was left from the summer.  This lead me to fill my bag with corn, peppers, roma tomatoes, nectarines, plums, and (my absolute favorite) zucchini.  Now here's what came out of the kitchen.  With the corn and jalapeƱo peppers, and a touch of green onions, I made fresh off the grill Corn Cakes.  They were FAB-U-LOUS!  To top it off we used a little bit of our local maple syrup to drizzle them with.  Then came the Nectarine and Plum Tarts.  These were out of this world!  Although, they weren't my personal favorite, everyone seemed to love them.  And out of the oven came 6 lovely loaves of Zucchini Bread.  Tops off to summer!
