One of my favorite magazines of all time, is bake FROM SCRATCH.
Oh my heck . . . it’s loaded with the most beautiful, mouth watering pictures. If you can’t find inspiration and endless baking ideas after reading through it, then you must be dead! It certainly inspires me to Get off my butt and BAKE. It’s one of those magazines that you could never ever throw away. It feels like Christmas, when I open the mailbox and it’s arrived in all its glory.
The only other magazine that makes my heart race a bit is Magnolia. If I had to choose just one though . . . it’s hands down going to be the bake one. These feather light, delicious buttery rolls called my name!
I’ve found the perfect recipe, and I’m here to show you how to make the most delicious 5- star pizzeria pizza you’ve ever tasted, right at home. Just follow these simple steps . . .
It’s a rainy, chilly day today. I like the rain, it brings out the bread baker in me. As I look over this blog, two of my favorites are these pull-a-part breads. Oh so delicious, and fun to eat!
When tart lemon and sweet blueberries merge together . . . magic happens! Today, I spent a good portion of the day looking through a huge mountain of cookbooks. One of the perks that this blog has blessed me with, is an array of beautiful cookbooks that pop up at my door.
As one year ends and another begins, I want to thank you for sharing a little part of my life. This crazy baking blog is a happy space for me and getting to know you through comments and emails brightens my days. I appreciate the ideas you share, your subtle nudges for help and also those of you who just silently lurk behind the scenes. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your lives, in and out of my kitchen. I’m excited for a fresh new year and the opportunity to put stacks of saved recipes to the test.

My wish for each of you in 2016, is peace of mind and a happy heart!

Hello fall . . . I adore you.
Please wrap your arms around us and stay a long while,
Drop your gorgeous leaves and let us play in the piles.
Gift us with your colors and humble us with your chill,
Grace us with your calm, your quiet, that peace that we feel.
Hello fall . . . I adore you.
We have a love hate relationship with muffin-tops. One seems to be the cause of the other!
Today . . . I think I’ll talk about the one we love. Warm, sweet berry filled muffins. These are so good, they’ve been requested twice this week.
The treadmill will be your best friend in order to avoid the other muffin!
I can’t think of anything better, than the aroma of homemade bread baking in the oven. It gives you that all is well feeling. Today, I’m sharing two of our favorite bread recipes with you.
This little black book has made me re-think some things . . . many things actually. We HAD chosen our favorite Banana Bread. It WAS a hands down winner. THIS banana bread CHANGED our minds!
Winter does give us a few perks. I believe that we don’t need to stress out quite as much, when it comes to our wardrobe.
1. We can just throw on a nice winter coat & a stylish pair of boots and we are set.
2. Toes don’t need to look perfect . . . nobody sees them.
3. Legs aren’t shaved quite as often, and we don’t seem to care.
Lastly . . . for me . . . the best perk of winter . . . a husband who is home earlier in the evening. Summer seems to kidnap him and forces him to work 16 hours a day. I have to be careful not to let myself sing the summer b-l-u-e-s. If you are or have been a farmers wife, then you can also relate to this feeling.
Dancing with a little pre- summer b-l-u-e-s . . . what should you do?
Make Orange rolls or Orange Coconut Pull-Apart Bread!

Lately, my mouth has been on the sore side. I’ve spent more time in the dentist chair than in the kitchen. If you’ve ever had an implant, then you know what I’m talking about. Soon, it’s coming to an end, and I’m very happy about that. Oh the price of trying to look pretty. Trust […]
Let’s talk about HARD THINGS and over the top delicious Lemon Blueberry Crumble Topped Muffins.
