It’s the first day of summer and also Father’s Day, which is double the reason to celebrate! Luckily for you, I’m sharing an outstanding cupcake recipe that encompasses the fresh flavors of summer and can be whipped up quickly, which is convenient in case you kind of forgot today was Father’s Day (it happens to the best of us).
After brainstorming recipes that focus on in-season produce, these blueberry-lemon curd cupcakes made the top of the list. One of the great things about summer is the abundance of sweet berries. I have yet to go out into the field and pick my own but that is definitely on my bucket list! I can imagine that working hard for your fruit makes them that much sweeter and truly embodies the concept of farm-to-table.
These cupcakes are simple to make but also look and taste absolutely amazing! I love the sweet and tart combination of blueberries and lemons, which is why I made sure they are the true stars of these treats.

The first day of summer, June 21, is right around the corner! To me, summer flavors are bright, clean, fresh, and light, and this simple lemon curd definitely embodies these things. I love the sweet and tart flavor combination, plus the creaminess, of lemon curd. It is extremely versatile as it pairs well with a multitude of baked goods, such as scones, macarons, tarts, and cupcakes, and helps cut through the sweetness. Lemons also go well with various flavors and herbs, such as mint, basil, and lavender.
Making your own lemon curd may seem scary and daunting but it is actually really easy and you probably already have all the ingredients! With just some mixing and chilling, you’ll have homemade lemon curd to enjoy simply or in other recipes, such as the Blueberry-Lemon Curd Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting recipe that will be on Celine’s Eats soon!

Last week in Baltimore, it already felt like the middle of summer with its high temperatures and humidity. I love when there is plenty of sunshine. However when it’s too hot and humid, I feel lethargic and not in the mood to cook because that involves making my apartment hotter. Am I the only one who feels this way?
But have no fear, I’ll still be adding more posts! I’m actually trying to post more frequently since I have more time in the summer. I’m really excited to try out and share some great summer-friendly recipes so stay tuned!
To combat the temptation to eat out, I made this refreshing and easy cold sesame noodle salad tossed in a flavorful, slightly spicy dressing. It won bonus points in my book for also being light and healthy so it didn’t weigh me down and helped me feel energized.
