    Count me in as well, please! I'll probably do something again from the Violet Bakery Cookbook -- either the raspberry-pistachio friands or the apricot kernel upside-down cake.

    Hi Simmie22 and izzy! I'll start a wait list, but I think we'll be able to squeeze in a couple of more people, depending on how long the wait list gets.

    I think I need something that can be done in advance b/c of Pitchfork that day!

    So let's say Black Pepper Ice Cream from Fleming's The Last Course for now.

    Hi,

    I regret I need to cancel.

    If you still need someone to give some thoughts on your plants, let me know. I can come by and offer some ideas.

    Cathy, sorry you won't be able to make it. Thanks for offering to come look at our yard. I'm going to try to call a couple more referrals, but I might take you up on it if they don't work out. I think there's not much we will do for the summer, but I definitely still need help knowing what to do with the plants at the end of the growing season.

    Simmie22, you're in! Izzy and Elaine, I'm going to leave the wait list up, but I still think we'll squeeze in 2 more for sure.

    My + 1 is making a lemon blueberry cake.

    I have a lot of peaches. I reserve the right to bring something else instead of black pepper ice cream this round. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Peaches! I vote something with peaches :) I'm planning to try toasting sugar in the oven to make angel food cake (a la this post http://www.seriouseats.com/2017/05/how- ... -cake.html). I am also making Jeni's Backyard Mint Ice Cream from mint in our yard. I'll send an email soon with info for Sunday.

    Laura, I am going to have to cancel. I am still fighting high blood sugar issues from eating too many desserts on my vacation. Hopefully will catch dessert exchange at a later time. Thanks.

    I will be bringing either a crumble or cookies not sure what it will be exactly. Laura is there anything that you would like me to bring for the dinner so it will not be too crazy for you?
