Savouring Summer & Celebrations

Summer memories | Summer flavours | Summer celebrations

I was kind of nerdy when I was a little kid (I'll pretend you looked shocked). Many of my summer memories included regular trips to the safe, air-conditioned public library where I competed against even nerdier kids in cut-throat book report contests. Regardless of this stressful childhood tradition, summer has always been my favourite time of year.

My taste buds instinctively crave my favorite summer childhood flavours when the thermometer climbs over 20 degrees: juicy watermelon, sweet & salty Filipio barbeque, tart lemonade. Now, having been involved with the yumminess of Chocolates by Bernard Callebaut for over 10 years, new summer flavours compete for my attention: Saskatoon berries, creamy Coconut and frozen chocolate covered bananas. Knowing our Alberta Summers only last a couple of short months, I make sure to relish every moment I have to savour my favorite summertime treats!

Summer is also celebration time at our store : ) Anniversaries are for sure my favorite summertime celebration. Helping new and "experienced" couples choose the perfect chocolates for their anniversary gifts and hearing their stories warms my heart and reminds me to be grateful for my sweetie. And of course we wouldn't have summer anniversaries without summer weddings! I love getting caught up in the excitement of hosting bachelorette chocolate parties and helping couples choose their chocolate wedding favors. (Check out Wedding Saviours - a "pay it forward" wedding concept we're participating in this year.) Most importantly are Summer birthdays! Did you know that there are more people who celebrate their birthdays in August than any other month? I'm one of them! It must have something to do with our long, cold winters ; )

Does anyone remember the jelly roll? I have made only a handful in my baking days, but had fun each time I did. It is one of those desserts that doesn't need much fussing to look beautiful. The beauty is in the slicing and serving, that delicate pinwheel full of possibilities!
