August Yummies in Maine/Elokuun herkkuja Mainessä


Pretty much every day in August we have been busy in the kitchen. Whether it has been our guests transforming our kitchen into a tempting haven full of exotic and tantalizing aromas, or the girls whipping up their famous Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookies, or the boys cooking up crayfish they caught from our lake, it is safe to say we have been enjoying all this kitchen activity.

Some of my favorites have included three-ingredient chocolate bars (recipe here), blueberry pies (recipe here), biscotti (one recipe here), crockpot applesauce (recipe here), and making soups and stews. There is something about the approaching fall that calls for pies and soups.

September and October are typically big pie months for our family, so stay tuned for more recipes.


Meidän keittiössä on ollut ahkera elokuu. Niin omia kokkaamisia, kuin vieraiden myös. Yllä kuvia ja reseptilinkkejä, suklaa on ollut ehdottomasti oma suosikkini (onkohan yllätys kenellekään??:). Syys-ja lokakuussa yleensä leivomme paljon piirakoita, joten niitä (ja reseptejä) tulossa myöhemmin.


  1. We will have to try those chocolate bars!

  2. Sharron, you should!! Healthy, too, and I think no gluten? SO easy to make.
