Weekend Cooking: In a Baking Mood

Weekend Cooking: In a Baking Mood

Apr 10, 2009

Between the holidays and the spring weather, this is feeling like a baking weekend to us! We can't think of anything better than getting out the flour and puttering around our kitchen for a few hours. Maybe we'll even be able to open a few windows and let in some fresh spring air! Do you have any baking plans in the works?

We're in the mood for something tried and true, something we've made a million times so we can just relax and cook without worrying how it will turn out. It's been a while since we made sourdough bread, so we think we'll refresh our starter and make a few loaves of that. A batch of cookies would also really hit the spot!

If you're in the mood but are lacking inspiration, here are a few of our favorite go-to recipes:

Mini Blueberry Lemon Muffins
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Monster Cookies
Brownie Cookies
Ginger Applesauce Cake
Mom's Rosemary Focaccia
Farmgirl's Oatmeal Toasting Bread
No-Knead Bread

What are you baking?
