One Final Summer Bake – MB Recipe 36

As summer comes to a close, I though it would be a good idea to take one last advantage of all the delicious berries available. Strawberry season is long gone and the drop in flavor is almost immediate. So I stayed clear of strawberries this time. For this recipe the star was blueberries.

“Dirt Bomb” Muffins – MB Recipe 35

This past weekend I was FINALLY able to get in the kitchen and bake something. It had been quite some time since I had enough down time to bake, and frankly, I’ve missed it. Sadly, my life has just been too crazy the last couple of weeks. Even though I was looking forward to baking, I still wanted something simple. That meant cakes and cupcakes were out. But, muffins seemed like an excellent idea and there had been a recipe calling out to me for some time.

August 2022 Round Up

As August comes to a close, I find myself sitting at the keyboard trying to form this post. You would think that for a month where I didn’t have a lot to say, it would be easy to compile a recap. That isn’t always the case. Today is one of those days.

Move Over Carrot Cake, I’m Coming For You! MB Recipe 34

July 2022 Baking Round-Up

This month, I made a huge dent in the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook project. (I’m kidding, of course. I only made one recipe!) But, July also saw the return to a time when this blog was just beginning. I made an Ina Garten recipe.

As we enter the dog days of summer, I have decided to return to the Magnolia Bakery cookbook for this week’s recipe. But, this time there was very little actual baking involved in the end product.

Barefoot Contessa 54 – Chocolate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I can’t believe it’s been over six months since I last made an Ina recipe! Wow, time sure does fly!! This is also a quick post because things have been quite busy for me the last couple of weeks. But I did get a chance to get some baking in. I needed something quick and easy and thanks to streaming services I found the perfect recipe!

A Small Twist on a Coffee Cake – MB Recipe 32

There are few things that I enjoy more with my breakfast than coffee cake. Though, for obvious reasons, I don’t often get the chance to have it. Well, a couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to experiment with a new coffee cake recipe. Is it really a surprise that it came from the Magnolia Bakery cookbook? I think not.

A Quick and Easy Strawberry Treat – MB Recipe 31

If you’re a newer reader of my blog, you may not know that I have a love-hate relationship with scones. Unfortunately for me, the cookbook I’m baking through has 10 scone recipes that all have to get made at some point. It isn’t something I’m looking forward to with this project. However, I think I found a way that makes things easier for me to make these delicious treats that also makes them taste better too!
