I really enjoyed this Focaccia. I am a sucker for melted cheese and bread so this was right up my alley. I am also happy with my result. A lot of times Focaccia is hard or too crunchy. This version … Continue reading
I think I have made this before but to be honest I am not sure. This time around my final product wasn’t “pretty” by any stretch. The pudding like frosting was tasty but really thick. The cake it self was … Continue reading
These muffins were good. They weren’t the best thing Baked has put out but I enjoyed them. The best part, they weren’t that labor intensive. I shared them with my parents and they enjoyed them for breakfast. That really is … Continue reading
Fried bread with bananas. Delicious. I did run into a small rock solid problem. My dark brown sugar was hard as a rock. Hold your collective eye rolls. Yes I know the slice of bread trick or the sliced apples … Continue reading
Sweet. Smooth. Chocolate. I wasn’t sure how I felt about malt. Growing up “Whoppers” weren’t the go to Halloween candy and other than the Christmas Story I had never heard of Ovaltine. The process was pretty painless. I strained it … Continue reading
Not exactly sure if I did it right but happy with my result. They were too “white” for my liking so I added chocolate. Who am I kidding? I wanted chocolate on them from the beginning. Hope everyone else had … Continue reading
This weekend I have baked: Red Velvet Cupcakes (gross. but Santa requested them) Chocolate Crinkles (traditional Christmas cookie. A must. might be my favorite) and This Holiday Spice Cake with Eggnog Buttercream. I can’t express how happy I am with … Continue reading
I won’t say this was a disaster nor will I say that it was a pure success. It was some where in the middle. I followed the directions as close as one can. Everything was going great until the last … Continue reading
Me and Baked are getting into a groove. These brownies were amazing. I spent the weekend baking and left these for last and it was worth the wait. The chocolate (Wegman’s trail mix bar rules) was sweet enough not to … Continue reading
This cookie might be my favorite from the Baked Books so far. Easy, classic flavors and fun to make. After my disaster of a baking experience on Thanksgiving these cookies came into my life to pull me out of my … Continue reading
Trust. In. Baked. I loved the result of these grits. Creamy, gooey and tasty. This is the first time that I didn’t have to go out and buy a bunch of ingredients to participate in this club. I had them … Continue reading
This time around our assigned recipe was, Caramel Coconut Cluster Bars. (point of order: its CAR-mel, not CARE-A-MEL or any other goof ball pronunciation, now that we have that sorted we can carry on) Carrying..On… I joined this confection club … Continue reading

This morning my Mom and I took a walk about half mile up the street to watch our neighborhood Veteran’s Day Parade. The parade is small, short and perfect. Complete with Santa coming in to start the holiday season on … Continue reading
My fourth (Fifth if you count the amount of times I tried to make the Burnt Sugar Bunt Cake) in the “Baked Sunday Mornings Bake Club.” I admit to not being a “custard” guy. I am not a fan of … Continue reading
My first brittle. Not as tacky or sticky as I thought it would be. The hardest part was finding the Pumpkin seeds and getting enough for the recipe. Wegman’s saved the day. Hope everyone else had a good Baked … Continue reading
Not incredibly difficult cookie to make. I found the dough to be sticky and regretted I didn’t read through the recipe last night. If I was going to do them again, I would take the time and let the dough … Continue reading
