A look back at my June BBQ-themed posts plus a round up of five more fantastic menus. There is something here for everyone!
Our barbecue-themed month on Baking Mischief has come and gone. Did you do much June BBQing? I actually didn’t do a ton, but summer has just begun. Who knows what July and August will bring! Since this month’s theme was a barbecue menu, we cooked through an entire menu over the course of the month, starting with Strawberry Limeades and ending with gooey S’mores Cupcakes.
And as I do at the end of every monthly series, I rounded up some more recipes from some of my favorite bloggers. This time I assembled them into themed menus and I had so much fun putting them together!
There is a beverage, a side/appetizer, a main dish, and a dessert for each, and the themes range from kid-friendly to vegan, so there should be something here for everyone. Happy barbecuing!
