Baking Experiments and Other Thoughts

As you know, I’ve been an a cinnamon sugar quest recently. I posted about it a couple of weeks ago. Since then I have made this new-to-me recipe for coffeecake: More of a marbled effect, the recipe called for mixing the strudel ingredients with some…

Monday Musings

Monday Musings

I’ve been wearing a sweatshirt for two days and I couldn’t be happier about it. I’m going to go get apples and apple cider this week and bake some apple cakes and I’m going to enjoy this afternoon’s rain and I know summer isn’t quite…

Cinnamon and Sugar

Labor Day Monday

Labor Day Monday

Yesterday was Labor Day and I had a very low-key day. Delivered some baked goods, had breakfast out, went for a drive, intended to pick raspberries but then didn’t, intended to nap but then didn’t, intended to start a new knitting project and gave up…

Citrus Currant Muffins

The reality of baking for inn guests is that, if I’d wanted to, I could have pretty much made the same two breakfasts over and over and over. Most guests only stayed for one or two nights. We did have a number of repeat guests…

Monday Went to the Races

The end of this summer is roaring along at full speed – whew! Parties! Weddings! Theater! Dog-sitting! Running! Library event planning! Baking! I did actually read some things that I wanted to share with you yesterday morning but somehow I’ve hit the ground running this…
