i love baking. its instant gratification and you can have a masterpiece within thirty minutes.
my first masterpiece of the evening happened to be the most amazingly tasty sugar crusted ginger chewies. the recipe comes from a blog i like to check in on called joy the baker. she has fabulous recipes and fun anecdotes pertaining to everything she bakes.
|mix it, mix it good|
i love my kitchenaid...
|nummy balls of molassesy,|
|they taste as good as they look|
the chewies are just crisp enough on the outside and perfectly soft on the inside...a perfect combo!
my second feat was a recipe for a blueberry streusel muffin. i couldn't possibly follow a recipe completely so i created cherry streusel muffins! replaced blueberries with cherries and even split the milk, half milk, half sour cream. lets just say they are pretty tasty!
|cherries, streusal and muffin oh my!|
|these will be gone before i know it|
