Photography by Chau Vuong
Boy, it is really heating up outside! Officially, the first day of summer does not arrive until the 21st day of June bringing about shorter nights and longer days! Summer welcomes school break, family reunions, holidays and extended vacation time. Listen! Can you hear it? I can hear the ocean calling me....
My family and I live only a few hours away from the beach and we enjoy loading up and packing a big picnic for the journey. Last time, we dropped by a local supermarket and picked up premade goodies. We enjoyed it but making our own goodies ahead of time would have been much more exciting and memorable. And, this is why I got excited when I was offered a chance to review "Beach House Baking: An Endless Summer of Delicious Desserts" by Lei Shishak.
"Beach House Baking" is a well-rounded cookbook that shares hundreds of delicious easy-to-follow recipes that include wonderful photography by Chau Vuong. There are morning treats, beverages, cupcakes, cookies, pies, ice cream sandwiches, and more! Lei shares interesting anecdotes from her favorite beach spots throughout this book. Also, you will find tips, tricks, and much more.
Yes, most kids love frosted white cupcakes and colorful sprinkles but they may consider a lip smacking Surfin' P.B.J. cupcake in which every bite is filled with chocolate, peanut butter and their favorite jelly! What beach campfire would not be complete without delicious S'mores cupcakes! Do not fret! There are many recipes in Beach House Baking that are recommended for ADULTS only! There are gluten-free, nut-free, heart-healty and vegan recipes. There is something delicious for everyone to enjoy!

Yesterday, I baked up a batch of Coco Hut Macaroons. The recipe was fun to make and easy-to-do. They were a big hit with the gang! Yum! Yum!
A normal activity for our family is to pack easy access foods for our trips but Beach House Baking has proven to be a more rewarding activity which can include helping hands from the entire family. Many of our favorites are the old-fashioned peanut butter cookies, Snickerdoodles, chocolate chip, Biscotti and more.
If you enjoy baking then I highly recommend grabbing a copy of "Beach House Baking: An Endless Summer of Delicious Desserts" by Lei Shishak. I just know you are going to enjoy baking, eating and sharing these wonderful recipes with your family and friends.
