As I mentioned in the previous post, we had friends visiting from out of town this past weekend. I made the Daring Bakers danish bread for breakfast one morning, but we had a few more breakfasts to go! Well, lucky for me and our guests, I got an excellent recipe idea from one of my […]

This month’s Daring Bakers challenge was definitely a challenge for me. I’m in a hurry to get ready for church right now, but wanted to post the recipe, and photos will come later. Check out the Daring Bakers blogroll in the meantime for others’ awesome photos and ideas for fillings. **UPDATE** Okay, yes, it’s now […]
If I can promise anything with a 100% guarantee, it is that you will love these cupcakes (if you like strawberries). This is another flavor of cupcakes I made for Ben’s graduation party and his cupcake tower. And, this is actually going to be the last cupcake recipe from his party that I’ll post because […]
