There’s only one thing I love as much as pizza…doughnuts. While I do have a small amount of willpower when it comes to refusing these doughy rings of deliciousness when I’m out and about, if I make them at home, I will eat them. It’s just a fact. And that is one of the many reasons I never make them at home.
Last year I worked up a batch of Gingerbread cookies to test my patience, and my ability to work royal icing. Truth, I failed on attempts 1-5.
I’m absolutely ok with the fact that I’ve decided to make cookies at the beginning of each week in the month of December. Coincidentally so is my husband, his coworkers, and now my coworkers.
While I’m not participating in any actual cookie swaps (not entirely sure what a cookie swap is), I am baking, and consuming a lot of cookies this Christmas season. Thankfully, the hubs likes to take them to his office to share so we aren’t eating ALL of the cookies. This recipe is so easy and the ingredients are standard in every kitchen, not just a baker’s pantry.
It’s October which means pumpkin spice EVERYTHING! While I’m not a huge fan of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, there are some pumpkin flavored things I will get behind. This recipe is a Pinterest OG Pin.
I’m on a mission to try and cut out all boxed or prepackaged baked goods.
If you’re like me, you buy bananas and eat a couple but sure enough, you have those last three or four you forget about and they just sit there getting brown. Instead of throwing them away, put them to good use. Those brown bananas are perfect for banana bread. The best thing about banana bread is that it requires things you most likely already have in your pantry.
That’s exactly what I put in the google search this weekend when hubs asked to make some scratch made cookies. Step aside cookie monster.
Yesterday was Pi Day, a day in which math and dessert collide. It’s the only acceptable time, in my opinion, math can be a general part of the conversation. I actually love pie.
Yesterday was National Cereal Day. To celebrate, in addition to my bowl for breakfast, and one for lunch (don’t judge), I decided to make some tasty Rice Krispie Treats for the hubs to take to work the next day. I didn’t necessarily have a recipe in my head, but I had the Rice Krispies, some butter, and some marshmallows. I figured that was pretty much all you needed.
