Love & Lemons Cooking Club – August!

Join the Love & Lemons Cooking Club Challenge this month! It's easy to enter, and one lucky winner will receive a prize. Find all the details below.

Last fall, I created the Love & Lemons Cooking Club to celebrate our wonderful community of readers. It’s super simple – each month, I choose a recipe. You make it, and you email me a photo. At the end of the month, I randomly select one winner to receive a prize.

I love the sense of community that comes from so many people cooking one recipe each month. We’re kicking off our August challenge today with my Peach Crisp Recipe, and I hope you’ll join in the fun! Here’s how it works:

Join the Love & Lemons Cooking Club

  1. Each month, I choose one seasonal recipe. Sign up for our email list so you’ll know as soon as I share each month’s recipe.
  2. Make that recipe during the month.
  3. Send a picture of it to [email protected] by the end of the month. This time, the deadline is August 31! 
  4. For a bonus entry, leave a comment (include your first and last name) on the challenge recipe’s blog post after you submit your photo.

The Prize: A $200 Williams Sonoma Gift Card!

At the end of the month, I randomly select a winner and post all of the photos. This time, we’re giving away a $200 Williams Sonoma Gift Card!

August’s Recipe: Peach Crisp!

What better way to celebrate peach season than with a peach crisp? This vegan and gluten-free recipe is SO easy to throw together, and it’s absolutely delicious. A nutty, cinnamon-spiced topping covers a juicy, jammy layer of fresh peaches. Serve it with vanilla ice cream for knockout late summer treat.

P.S. Leftovers are great for breakfast the next day. 🙂

Last Month’s Challenge

July’s recipe was my Easy Gazpacho. Jack and I have had it on heavy rotation for the last couple of weeks because it’s been hot and humid here in Chicago. Many of you reported that it gave you some reprieve from the heat too – I’m so glad! I hope you continue to enjoy it throughout the summer.

Here are all your photos:
