    I would like to continue to take advantage of our vaxxed summer and thus I'm planning to host the August dessert exchange on my back patio in Glen Ellyn - Sunday, August 15th at 4:00 . I will serve a light summer supper followed by sharing desserts. We'll plan to be outside, but in case of inclement weather (or very hot weather), everyone who attends MUST be fully vaccinated, and I would like to have the option to come inside if needed.

    I will let you know more as I work out the details. I hope you can join us!

    So far…
    KalamazooGal (almond cake with peaches and cream)
    Simmie22 (sick :-()
    JustJoan (cannot attend)
    MisseyBlu1 - (Blueberry lemon drizzle cake)
    Pairs4Life (Peach Raspberry cardamom Crumble slab pie)
    LauraS (petite peach galette)
    IrisArbor (layered citrus cheesecake)
    Wild Rice (rhubarb galette)
    JennyIL (blueberry and maple bund cake)
    Mollyanne (raspberry & blueberry snacking cake)

    HI,

    Sadly, I will be in Kansas City, St. Louis or somewhere in between.

    i really appreciate the offer, and i'm sure she'd have a fine time, but she'll be staying in buffalo grove and probably wont have a car, so i doubt that'll work out. but i'll keep it in mind. i will definitely try to arrange to see her on saturday- she's flying in from tokyo, where she's in the foreign service and she always has a full schedule of friends and relatives to see on these too short visits...

    Hi all, it looks like the forecast is for fabulous weather on Sunday and I am planning a yummy savory summery repast before we dip into the desserts.
    We should be able to be outside and we have room for a few more to join.
    Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday!

    Well Done!

    I had a great time.

    I would love the recipe for the beans served.

    My contribution was a peach raspberry crumble slab pie. It was truly unremarkable out of the oven. The next morning however, after being completely cooled it was glorious! https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/101 ... e-slab-pie

    I agree! It was a lovely gathering. And am happy to share the recipe for celery and white bean ragout. My adds were two cloves of grated garlic and a squeeze of 1/2 lemon
