What’s Up With All The Baking?

asked my darling daughter yesterday afternoon.  It must be the holiday season that is upon us, I replied.   Or at least, that’s what I was thinking.  I think it is more likely that I actually said, umh hmh, and thought that the cold weather is finally here, and baking goes with cold weather.  But she is right – we have been baking every day since Thanksgiving.  We began the long weekend preparing pumpkin muffins with crystallized ginger, and two apple-currant-walnut pies.  Friday, we made a pumpkin pie.  Saturday, I made a loaf of that delicious Bittman bread.  And on Sunday, we had popovers for breakfast, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for a snack, and blueberry crisp for dessert after dinner.  As we move into a normal work/school week, I know that the baking can’t continue at the same clip, but I will note that on my menu plan for the week, both banana bread and pumpkin pike make appearances.

For those of you longing for some blueberry goodness – and a little taste of summer – blueberry crisp recipe is below.  Just follow this link:

Cookies: Key to Family Foodie

So all of us have nights when cooking doesn’t seem like so much fun, when work has been a drag, and the kids have mountains of homework, and all we really want is a beer and chips….so a great solution for our family is to order out (PieTanza – our favorite pizza purveyor) and then bake cookies – after we’ve all eaten and showered and finished homework.  Now sometimes we’ll bake from scratch, but tonight we had some Betty Crocker cookie mixes that we bought on sale with coupons, and the kids were up for making them.  Of course, they’ll all be gone within 24 hours, but they were yummy while they lasted.  A cooking sequence below:

First, crack the egg and add some butter (or oil depending upon the cookie):

Then, the mixing begins:


Next we need to put them by rounded teaspoonfuls on the cookie sheet:


And then they cook, and the kids eat:
