Summer of Rhubarb

Summer of Rhubarb

Before this summer, I had never cooked or made anything with rhubarb. Well, the plethora of rhubarb at my local farmer’s market each week changed that! I made strawberry rhubarb freezer jam, rhubarb crisp, and strawberry rhubarb pie (twice). It was a yummy month of July!

Dutch Baby Pancakes

Dutch Baby Pancakes

Mmm, I love Dutch Baby Pancakes! Have you had these? It is like a big giant pancake you bake in the oven and then add whatever toppings you want. A little confectioner’s sugar on top is yummy. Or guild the lily and add syrup and fresh sliced bananas, too. Yum! Dutch Baby Pancake 3 eggs … Continue reading

Strawberry Bread

Strawberry Bread

I had some strawberries that were just too sour for munching on their own, so I decided to bake them into this bread. It came out yummy! (I did add a splash of milk to the recipe because the batter was too thick and dry seeming.) It was so good fresh from the oven, but … Continue reading

Winter Fun

Winter Fun

It is no secret the Wee One and I love snow and the winter. We also love crafting, which you probably guessed. And baking. So we made a cute snowman painting and some mini baked doughnuts. The snowman and large “snowballs” in the sky are drawn with oil pastels. Then the Wee One used watercolors … Continue reading

Recipe: Baked Chicken Pizza Roll-Ups

Recipe: Baked Chicken Pizza Roll-Ups

I made up a recipe this week. It was my own idea with all my own thought-up ingredients. AND it turned out deliciously! (Or so I was told, since it involves meat and I am a vegetarian. It is always a challenge creating meat recipes since I can’t taste them to see how they turned … Continue reading

Mmm! Cake Pops

Mmm! Cake Pops

Cinnamon Vanilla Popovers

Cinnamon Vanilla Popovers

When I was a kid, my mom would make popovers as a special treat for my siblings and I. (She may have made them regularly, but I remember them as being something special!) She would serve them warm from the oven with butter and jam and they really couldn’t be beat. I’m not sure why I … Continue reading

This time around I made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and bread– three dozen mini muffins and two loaves of bread. Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread: 1 cup whole wheat flour 1 cup white flour 2 tsp baking … Continue reading

Back to School: Lunches

Back to School: Lunches

School starts back up next week for the Middl’n and I have been feeling creative about school lunches. He is a major fan of food that is self-contained, i.e. hot pockets and burritos. Sure they are convenient and he likes their taste, but I thought I could make something that he would like, was also … Continue reading

Yummy Food I Made

Yummy Food I Made

Wednesday it was in the 70’s which was fantastic because it meant I could bake. I dislike the summer because it means I can rarely turn the oven on, since it makes the house too hot. (There are also reasons why I like the summer, but that isn’t relevant to this post.) When I was … Continue reading
