At the end of each month, I think about how I already know what the next month’s Relishments Bakes challenge is going to be and that I should start the post. And then I remember that before I can post the challenge, I need to write up that week’s menu plan and the current month’s Relishments Bakes Results post. And next thing I know (because my blogging time is so limited), it’s the middle of the month and I still haven’t made a post about the current challenge. Apparently, my month challenges are just going to be posted a couple weeks late, every month. There’s still lots of time to bake though!

Relishments Bakes – July
One of the most enjoyable ways to get new recipes is from people you know in real life. When I try a great dish at a barbecue or a cookie swap (remember when we used to gather with people and share food?), I’m definitely not leaving the event without getting a copy of the recipe. It adds so much meaning to a dish when you can say “this recipe came from my mom” or “from the family I stayed with when I studied abroad” or “from my best friend”. This month, I’m going to bake recipes I’ve borrowed from people that mean a lot to me.
Who will you borrow your recipe from?
- The family of your significant other
- The library, by borrowing a cookbook
- The woman at your church who always brings the best potluck dessert
- A coworker who provides awesome work treats
- Internet friends
- One of the many Black food bloggers I shared last month
Don’t forget to use #RelishmentsBakes on your social media posts and tag @relishments so I can see your results! And share what you make with whoever’s recipe you borrowed!
