  • Baking Day

    When the weather heats up, my oven use is often determined by the temperature, and today happens to be the best day for at least a week for baking. So my kitchen is getting a workout!

    I just pulled a batch of brownies out of the oven, and I’ve got some cereal bars in there right now. And I’ve got two loaves of sandwich bread going through their final rise.

    I’m also planning on baking some blueberry muffins, banana bread, blueberry coffee cake, and chocolate snack cake, and freezing some cookie dough. Cereal deals have been a little scarce lately, so I’m trying to stock the freezer with breakfast alternatives so I don’t have to pay $1+ per box of cereal. I’m also trying to stock some after-school snacks so the kids will stop pouting about their choices!

    What’s your favorite thing to bake and freeze?
