Summer Vacation

summersunrise.jpg

Summer's officially here in the tropics, and we've decided to give Baking is Hot a much needed vacation. After featuring almost 2000 beautiful baked goods, we need a little break from running the site, so we're not accepting submissions right now. We're definitely going to be doing some hot summer baking and visiting Baking is Hot for inspiration however - and we hope you will too!

We're also planning to update the site over the summer to make it fresher, more fun, and more interactive. We're really excited about the changes and we think they'll make the site even better.

Still we'll miss you, and if you miss us too feel free to contact us, say hi or send us a suggestion.

See you in the fall. :)

Here is another one of my grandmother's homemade secret recipes: Sticky Buns. This sweet yeast dough is swirled with a butter-cinnamon and walnut center and cooked in a sweet brown sugar and butter glaze. You can't eat just one.
