The Dough Also Rises

Oy, bad reference. For weeks I’ve been weighing my love for all things warm and gooey and cinnamony with my ongoing battle with yeast breads, and finally decided to give in and give this lovely looking Cinnamon Pull-Apart bread that has been all over the foodgawking universe a try. And after round 1, I think … Continue reading

TWD: Citrus Currant Sunshine Muffins

Woops! Last week came and went and I forgot to post this. Oh well, better late than never! Okay, so based on ingredients on hand, my TWD recipe this week morphed into what I would more call an Orange Cranberry Muffin. No currants (I swapped out orange flavored dried cranberries), and no lemon oil. BUT, … Continue reading

TWD: Toasted Almond Scones

I’ll be short, sweet, and to the point on this one. These were 1) super easy, and that’s coming from someone who has a history of fouling up any recipe that has something about not “overworking” or “overmixing” the dough, 2) smelled really good – how could toasted almonds and butter NOT smell good!, and … Continue reading

TWD: Great Grains Muffins

As usual, I busted out the mini muffin pan for these. I just find that they are easier to give away when they are minis…the full size muffin is way more of an investment. And plus, I get to spread the wealth a little more! (And yes, I bake to give away…I could never possibly … Continue reading

TWD: Coffee Break Muffins

I am already planning to make these again. 🙂 So super easy, a delicious coffee flavor (and cinnamon too as I may have OD’d a little on the cinnamon addition…yummm), perfectly and not overly sweet. Thanks, Rhiani for a fabulous choice!

TWD: Oatmeal Breakfast Bread

Considering it has been riDICulouslyhot and humid in the greater DC area for the last, I don’t know, gazillion weeks, it was a little odd that I found myself craving oats. I’ve just had a hankering for oaty, oatmealy, cinnamony, crumbly baked goods. You’d think I’d be more about citrusy, summery, fruity things, but no. I … Continue reading

TWD: Raisin Swirl Bread

…better known this week for me as Cinnamon Swirl Bread. Just can’t quite bring myself to include those raisins! I’ll admit that I was a little overwhelmed when I read this recipe – I know that I am not alone in my general fear of anything involving yeast or for me especially, rolling out dough. … Continue reading

TWD: Swedish Visiting Cake

Three words: Easiest. Cake. Ever. Seriously, I read on other blogs about recipes that are “perfect for unexpected company showing up” and I inevitably look at them and think that before I would spend what would probably take me an hour or two in the kitchen “whipping up” something while my guests sat around, I would … Continue reading

TWD: Coconut Tea Cake

Yes, I DID put the lime in the coconut. 🙂 But, of course, I still cannot comment on the taste. It smelled delish for sure (and I love, love, love any excuse to rub citrus zest into sugar…just divine), and instead of making it into one big pan, I did two loaves so that I … Continue reading

TWD: Coco-Nana Bread

Even though I have the book at home, when I first read about our monthly TWD recipes I Google them – for two reasons, really. One is to run through the recipe and check the list of ingredients in case there is anything I have to pick up, the other is to see reviews. Especially … Continue reading
