Get Off Your Butt and BAKE Impressive Recipes made Simple Step by step pictures and baking tutorials.

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!

Today, I simply bring you some dinner . . .

Yum!
