Strawberry and Cream Scones

Strawberry and Cream Scones

These Strawberry and Cream Scones are among my favorite scones ever. I made them frequently in 2012 when I first tried them. It’s been such a long winter this year. I figured that if spring weather wasn’t going to arrive and stay, I should take […]

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cake was one of my favorite recipes of 2010. It was #74 of my 365 recipe challenge that year. I made it a few more times while we still lived in Illinois, but I began to focus on trying other […]

Sprinkle Scones

Sprinkle Scones

One of my goals for 2018 is to make fun weekend breakfasts. I’ve done this most weekends so far. One breakfasty thing I’ve missed has been scones, which I used to make all the time. So I knew that I had to make these Sprinkle […]

Perfect Blueberry Muffins

Perfect Blueberry Muffins

The last time I made my usual blueberry muffin recipe, I wasn’t as happy with it as I remembered. Those muffins overflowed and flattened out, more of a mushroom shape than a nice, mountainous muffin shape. It was about then that Alton Brown published an […]

Quick Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Quick Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

My intermittent weekend baking continues. While Alex took weekend nap duty with the baby, I whipped up a quick and easy chocolate chip coffee cake for him for Father’s Day. If you just have one coffee cake recipe in your rotation, this should be it.

Whole Wheat Raspberry Ricotta Scones

Whole Wheat Raspberry Ricotta Scones

Alex got me the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook for Christmas, and although I’ve only read a little of it, it’s a great cookbook so far. I already talked about the Maple Bacon Biscuits that I made from it. My second recipe attempted from it was Whole […]

Maple Bacon Biscuits

Maple Bacon Biscuits

Alex got me the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook for Christmas (I’m sure you’ve noticed that I link over to Smitten Kitchen regularly), and the first, oh, dozen recipes I read in it were all things that I would really like to make. Definitely a sign of […]

Cinnamon Rolls from The Bread Baker’s Apprentice

Cinnamon Rolls from The Bread Baker’s Apprentice

Bread 46 was the Cinnamon Buns recipe from The Bread Baker’s Apprentice. I had planned to make a different cinnamon roll recipe but didn’t have the ingredients I wanted for it. It surprised me that I hadn’t noticed this recipe from the book sooner, despite making probably […]

Cinnamon Bread

Cinnamon Bread

I’ve fallen behind on my bread project for this year, unfortunately. Life has a way of making that happen. I had great momentum starting out this year, and I even managed to mostly keep up with it during a hectic summer. In fact, I’ve even […]

Vanilla Chai Donuts

Vanilla Chai Donuts

This weekend, it finally began to feel like fall! I had the windows open both yesterday and today to let in the refreshingly cooler air. This is St. Louis, so we may still have some hot days in the future, but I hope this weather […]
