Let Them Eat Cheesecake!

Happy First Day of August, everyone! For July’s challenge, Sally picked ‘no bake’ cheesecake jars. I saw this as the perfect opportunity to make a low carb version of one of Sally’s challenges. If you remember way back in the early days of my low carb baking, I converted Sally’s Greek Yogurt Pineapple Bars into…

Piece of Cake

This month for Sally’s Baking Challenge, Sally chose Angel Food Cake. I was pretty excited about this for the month of June because Angel Food Cake is my Dad’s favorite cake and Father’s Day is this month! I actually had plans to move last weekend (on Father’s Day weekend), so I was kind of pushing…

Gluten- Free Orange Cake

Hello Bakers and Bloggers! Long time no see! My posts have been very infrequent because life has officially caught up with me. I recently moved to a different city and started a new job. As if that wasn’t enough, I’m staying with family while I transition, so most of my belongings are hanging out in…

This is How I Roll

Hi everyone! I apologize with how long it’s been since my last post. Life has been really chaotic lately and I’m having a hard time finding the time for baking. This is a strange concept for me since baking is what I do when I’m stressed. But lately, I’ve been too stressed out to even…

Sun’s Out Buns Out!

It’s time to talk about April’s baking challenge for Sally’s blog. This month she picked Soft Dinner Rolls. I was a little surprised that she picked something that seemed so simple for a “challenge”. But hey, that means an easy month, right?! April is already filled with a lot of spring activities and family gatherings,…

Piggies in A Blanket

Welcome to my little corner of March’s #greatbritishbakeoffinternational challenge. I really enjoy doing these challenges with my baking friends. I learn so much by baking a new kind of food and by seeing other’s successes and failures. For this month’s challenge, we picked “Pigs In a Blanket”. However, the dough was not a crescent roll…

Baking Super Heroes

Woof, it has been a long week. But let’s jump back to this time last week. Have you guys ever had a daunting project looming ahead of you that you weren’t sure you could achieve well, much less execute perfectly? This is how I feel about cake decorating. I am not a perfectionist, but when…

Chocolate Pecan Macarons: Take Two

Happy Moanday Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today I’m posting about something I made a few weeks ago. I’m really behind on my posting because I didn’t have internet that one week. However, that means I have so many bakes to share with you. Some of you will remember that the…

Mustard & Cheddar Loaf

So for the month of February, the British Bake Off International Challenge was to make a Mustard and Cheddar Loaf. I have had some successes with making bread in the past, so I was pretty excited about it. For our challenges, the admins of our little group are choosing recipes from “The Great British Bake…

Chocolate Pecan Macarons

So a few weeks ago I stumbled across a baking blog group that hosts their own monthly baking challenges. They pick the challenges from “The Great British Bake Off: Big Book of Baking”. Have any of you watched the Great British Bake Off on Netflix? It’s the best. One different thing I noticed about this…
