Honey Wheat Bagels

2014-02-25_HoneyWheatBagels-600px-2

We’ve had an unusual number of chilly, snowy days this winter.  In the last few years, I have often designated snowy days as my baking days in the kitchen. Preheating the oven just seems to take the chill out of the air… And, a few freshly baked treats don’t hurt either. While I don’t quite…

Molasses Banana Biscuits (Munching with Maddie… And Yellowdog!)

It’s been such a busy few weeks… I am feeling the crunch of a late Thanksgiving and fewer days between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Even though we’ve pulled back on gift giving and spending over the past few years, I feel as though the hype of the Christmas season continually makes it all crazier and more…

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting (Munching with Maddie)

I am still having trouble accepting the fact that Maddie’s first birthday has already come and gone.  I know that every parent says that. Cliché or not, it seems like yesterday that we were bringing her home from the hospital and introducing her to Yellowdog. Now that she’s well on her way to toddlerhood, I…

Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars with Chocolate Chips

Pumpkin season is officially here. Can I get an amen? It has taken me a while to get around to the pumpkin baking this year… Normally I am chomping at the bit, finding reasons to bake pumpkin bread in July.  This year, though, I held off until October. I’m not sure what to attribute my…

Multigrain Pancake Mix (Munching with Maddie)

I’m sure no one needs to tell you that parenting is tough. No matter how prepared I thought that I was, I’m not sure that I realized how much of a challenge it would be at times. For me, the biggest challenge comes at mealtime.  I expected the sleepless nights and the tantrums.  I was ready…

Whole Wheat Blue Cheese Crackers

When it comes to snack foods, my hubby is a chips guy. He loves his kettle cooked chips in a variety of flavors.  While I enjoy chips (though, not flavored ones that leave my fingers all messy… yuck!), I am more of a crackers girl. Specifically, I really love cheese crackers. Strangely enough, with all of…

Trail Mix Cookie Bars

I’ve been making a lot more cookie bars lately… And brownies. It turns out that baking cookies with an infant isn’t quite as easy as I once thought. Previously I thought that cookies were a given in the kitchen… How hard is it to bake cookies? You just slap some dough on a sheet pan…

Coconut and Dark Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Friday nights aren’t what they used to be at my house.  For a while, Friday night was date night, and my hubby and I would go out for cocktails and dinner on Friday nights.  But, as you might imagine, we don’t go out nearly as much as we used to these days. Ok, we don’t…

Spiced Plum Jam Bars

Can you believe that I have never made jam bars before? With all of the canning I do, you would think that they’d be a regular in my kitchen, but I only just recently decided to give them a try. And, let me tell you… I am glad that I did! Over the summer, we…

Kitchen Bootcamp Roundup – Yeast Breads

Kitchen_Bootcamp_Logo.jpg

For this Kitchen Bootcamp challenge, I asked everyone to spend some time in the kitchen getting familiar with yeast breads… Many of you know that I love to bake, and baking with yeast is pretty high up there on my list.  While a new baby has kept me from doing as much baking for this challenge as I…
