Happy 4th of July!!

How are you celebrating? We’re headed to a neighborhood bbq later this afternoon, and I’m bringing these red, white, and blue lemon buttermilk cupcakes along to share.

It’s probably too late for you to bake these cupcakes today (though they’re actually pretty quick and easy), but I figure they’re super yummy and Summer-y regardless of the holiday, and thought I’d leave you with the recipe anyway.

Baking is a lovely sort of therapy. The even, precise measuring, the sweet aromas, the satisfying way a batter or dough comes together…

And when there are two plumbers upstairs, ticking away a bajillion dollars with every hour that passes, it’s the perfect time to escape to the kitchen, stick your head in the sand – well, flour, and sugar, and butter – and bake up some damn good lemon blueberry muffins.

Blackberry Chocolate Fig Bars

Sweet berries, mission figs, and dark chocolate come together in sweet harmony in these blackberry chocolate fig bars – an indulgent treat that’s gooey in all the right places and bursting with complex flavor.

While I typically think of fresh figs as an end of summer/early fall treat, I spotted some at Whole Foods this week, and naturally a dainty basket of delicate, deeply purple Mission figs made their way into my cart.

While those plump, fresh beauties were destined to be stuffed with soft goat cheese and wrapped in translucent prosciutto before baking to caramelized nirvana, they inspired me to dig through the back of my baking cabinet for some dried figs, which I combined with fresh, juicy Marion blackberries, deep dark chocolate, and a sweet oat cookie crumble to make these indulgent blackberry chocolate fig bars.
