Taking on Mountain



For several months I've debated whether or not to host a challenge. I mean there are tons out there and I'm one meager college student with lots going on, but how would I know if I could handle it, if I didn't try. So here it goes ladies and gentlemen. If all goes well this might become a monthly thing.

Summer Flavor
As HOT days come upon us, markets open and bring in fresh produce. Nothing is better than a peach from the farm or a watermelon from the garden. There is no limit to your imagination from ice-cream to cupcakes to grilled fruit. Whatever makes you salivate you can post. However, it must be local and it must be fresh produce. Here's general guidelines.
1) One must be centered around some local fruit (veggie if you really like) from your farmers market or own garden.
2) It must be a dessert!
3) Must be posted by July 21st and there will be a round up on July 22nd on this here website. Send me information with name, blog, and dish. And don't for get pictures!
Good Luck and I'll be picking a winner and sending a goodie!

A challenge, dessert, a prize? Oh, boy, now you've got me thinking. I've been on such an ice cream binge lately that might be it....or not. We'll see. Thanks for the fun idea!

I'm shocked I've never come across your blog before, not only because I spend hours going from foodblog to foodblog, but more importantly, because you're from Austin too! I've been wanting to make something with blueberries lately, but it seems it's not quite blueberry season yet. Hopefully I'll get some other inspiration and enter your contest. Good to know another Austinite out there...

Your challenge concept sounds very inspiring!! - I've been pondering on wether to host one too at my blog... obviously something to do with cakes &/or chocolates...

Sounds like a good idea to me. I've been blogging about my trip to Chicago and the food I had while I was there. Think I'm going to try a raspberry ice box treat this weekend with some berries I picked at a local farm recently--does that count?
