There is so much pretty food around the blogosphere right now - bloggers are practically swooning over sweet treats and summer fruit. Here's a taste...
L. over at the witty and acerbic Bake and Shake bakes a Banana Cake with White Chocolate-Cream Cheese Icing. It's damp and squishy and moist and looks fantastic.
Sarah at Food and Paper is making summer soups, with not one but two kinds of gazpacho: Mango-Cucumber Gazpacho with Harissa-Glazed Shrimp and Cilantro Gazpacho.
The always appetizing Traveler's Lunchbox has a lovely granola recipe.
And one of our favorite reads, Lucy's Kitchen Notebook from Lyon, France, has some marvelous photos and inspiration from the French summertime, including this perfect jam and individual Pavlovas.
