So this baby thing has really been killer on my baking. If I’m honest, I was usually too busy to get much baking done anyway. But now, I decide I’m craving fresh homemade bread or chocolate pudding… no sooner do I start than Mr. Froggy Pants decides that he’s also craving goodies, of the sort that only I can provide. Fortunately for me, my beloved amnachaidh has always taken over for me, leaving tummy satisfied, if not creative impulses. I only flipped through this book on the new book cart, but I will be checking it out as soon as it’s available:
The Weekend Baker by Abigail Johnson Dodge This book features yummy recipes for people who are really too busy to bake. It includes tips on baking faster, and how to stash your weekend-made goodies so you can enjoy them throughout the week. The recipes are divided into three sections: Section 1, recipes that can be made in a hurry, including Blender Cupcakes, for when you discover you need them for tomorrow morning at 10 pm. Section 2, recipes that can be made in stages, in between your errands and chores. Section 3, for when you have a little more time and want to make something Really Impressive (but still, she assures, not too difficult.)
I’m still drooling.
