The Year in Baking Thus Far

Kittens, I’m calling it. I’m a third of the way through this challenge to bake weekly for a year, having begun it over the 2019 Christmas holidays, but I need to press pause. I enjoy baking and I think it’s better to make your own sweets than buy them, but this is a pace I cannot continue without more exercise than quarantine measures allow. I know vanity isn’t the highest motive to claim, but as a person who requires effort to keep her weight level to say nothing of dropping, this is not conducive to my long term happiness.

But I’d be remiss in my duties if I didn’t celebrate and share the sugar goods which have gotten me through 2020 so far. I’m pivoting to healthier cooking for the time being, but I’d be delighted to live vicariously through any of you who care to try the below and share your efforts!

  1. Pear, goat cheese, and honey- what a combo! The BA early gray yogurt cake is so good.

    This quarantine I’ve made cinnamon rolls, a French silk pie, chocolate chip cranberry cookies, and banana bread. Next up is a carrot cake (half a recipe) and chocolate chip tahini cookies.

  2. Wow…you guys!!!

    I made a sour cream coffee cake yesterday (so good, easy); banana bread, blueberry muffins. With only two of us in the house, and Jose being diabetic, we can’t consume that much.
