Standard Fare

If you focus on getting in all the servings of produce you need everyday, as well as healthy protein, meals are beautiful, nutritious and delicious (and pretty easy too).

Bûche de Noël

My sister-in-law knows that we do a Bûche de Noël every year, and so she sent me a photo from Bon Appetit, and I just had to make their version for this year. Here's the recipe online, and I especially love the meringue mushrooms!

Baking Away...

Pie, pie, me-oh-my... Smitten Kitchen's pecan, First Prize Pie's cranberry dream, Joy The Baker's sweet potato pie filling done for Wednesday. And some loaves of "stuffing bread," that I'm recreating with inspiration from a store-bought loaf that Karen introduced me to a couple years ago (but that QFC no longer carries). Bread with stuffing spices. 

I still need to make apple crisp for Joel and pumpkin pie, and some cranberry-orange breakfast rolls for Friday (and as a hostess gift). And, maybe some pretzel rolls if I go crazy. (Oh, who am I kidding? I'm totally making the pretzel rolls...)

Such a pretty little cake...

made by Erik and me for Bea's birthday. It's a fantastic white cake recipe from Glorious Treats called "Perfect Vanilla Cupcakes." Paired with my usual simple buttercream, and some sprinkles and sugared nasturtiums, it was the perfect cake for a wee 2-year old. We baked it in my 4-inch mini Bundt pan, and this one is two layers since we had enough batter for this and Modi's cake too.
