Here & There: Backwards

Here & There: Backwards

It has finally happened. I feel a little disoriented. It is almost as if a snow globe were shaken and things are disoriented and blurry before it all settles down again. You know this story…the story of the baby who does not sleep like he used to? And the part of the story where the baby gets mad at the whole wide world and is telling everyone all about it in a super loud and frustrated little voice. In new parent class they did not mention this thing. There was no warning at all, we simply landed here one day. There is very little Mom or Dad can do but to hold him super close and love him to pieces.

Baking Bootcamp Challenge: Gruyere & Green Olive Rolls

Baking Bootcamp Challenge: Gruyere & Green Olive Rolls

 

Gruyere & Olive Stuffed RollsThe third baking bootcamp challenge by Joy the Baker & King Arthur Flour was to bake up a few gruyere and green olive stuffed rolls. I am not going to drag this out – I was intimidated. So, so scared to work with yeast which is super sensitive to the environment, time and temperature. Add in a slightly cranky (yet still adorable) baby and we just have ourselves a full day of entertainment!

Sundays with Joy: Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Sundays with Joy: Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Cream Cheese Pound Cake with Blueberry Ginger SauceI have spent many Sundays weaving my way through and working on Joy Wilson’s recipes from her first cookbook, “100 Simple and Comforting Recipes.” This recipe is our last Sundays with Joy recipe from that book. Do you know something? It was hard for me to make this recipe. We have finished the final chapter in the cookbook. I have been on this virtual journey, connected with other virtual people who have a passion to try out recipes as well, for quite a few years. “I am working on a Joy recipe/ post” I would tell whomever was near, as I escaped to the kitchen or desk to get the words, experiences and pictures out into the great big wide world.

This recipe will not be the last one by any means! “Homemade Decadence” has hit the bookshelves and I cannot wait to get my hands on it! But this is the last recipe from this book, making it with these people and it is sad to see this chapter close. I paired this cream cheese pound cake with two of my favorite things: blueberries because they will forever and always remind me of my wedding and ginger because it will forever and always remind me of being pregnant! Somehow, in my mind, this was the perfect pairing for this moment in time. Come on, let me show you what a snap this was to prepare!

Baked Pumpkin Spiced Donuts

Baked Pumpkin Spiced Donuts

The title of this post should have the word fail in it but somehow I could not bring myself to go there. Maybe not the complete word, but a capital letter f. But not just a capital letter f in black and white print, no. Instead, a capital letter f written with a fine tipped red marker, or a red ink Papermate, which would make it stand out. I am here to share the not-so-good recipe I tried in an attempt to not lead you down this path. Sharing. Sharing is caring. IMG_8530
