JanuaryBerry Powerful Bars
I love this bars and my kids get super happy every time I make them. It's so much cheaper than buying them in the store plus you have total control over ingredients. No BHT, unless you really want to add it.
FebruaryValentine's Checkerboard Red Velvet Cake
For the amount of kitchen time and recipe juggling this one took, the checkerboard cake wins. It looked stunning and tasted wonderful, plus it was a learning experience, my dress rehearsal for The Wedding Cake
An honorable mention had to go to the Double Decker Creme Brulée, though. Delicious!
MarchSiren Peanut Butter Cookies
Cookies + peanut butter = fabulous! Need I say more?
AprilPeanut Butter Whoopie Pies
Not only were these finger-licking delicious, I even got a special request from a friend to make these for her daughter's school's bake sale. She said they were gone in a flash.
MayChococlate Cherry Brownies with Chocolate Ganache
Really, the name says it all.
JuneStrawberry Macaron Pops
A fun twist on a classic macaron, and oh so cute!
JulyEden - ain't she purdy?
Although the Lemon Icebox Cake was pretty wonderful, the birth of my granddaughter was much more amazing.
AugustMarionberry Honey Pops
What's better than a popsicle? Making it yourself!
I was so pleased with how well these turned out. They looked elegant enough to serve at a luncheon, but we just pretty much scarfed them down because they were delicious, too.
OctoberSalted Peanut Brownies
In looking through my old posts I realize I have a brownie addiction. But seriously, how can you turn down the combination of chocolate, peanuts, and salt? Not happenin'.
NovemberWhite Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Generous chunks of white chocolate make these irresistible!
DecemberTruly I've Been Good Cookies
I loved the taste and texture of these cookies. Dense, moist, and with a taste that draws you back for just one more. Or two.
As you can see, it's been a great year. And looking back over all my baked treats, I've come to one conclusion - I need to go work out! See you next year!
