This weekend, I'm planning on taking my baking friend and guest-blogger Erin on her first trip to my favorite Amish store, Beachy's Bulk Foods, in rural Arthur.
The cooler temperatures have me suddenly yearning for baked fall flavors.
(Although I admit, I would skip straight to baking Christmas cookies if I thought it would be socially acceptable. But it's not, we have more than a month of summer remaining on the calendar, and I'm digressing.)
My friend Erin has written so many guest blog posts that use this frosting recipe that I decided it was time it had its own blog post.
Rob and I went to Erin and Tom's house to celebrate Tom's birthday this weekend, and Erin made an incredibly delicious chocolate chip cookie cake.
This weekend's cooler temperatures have me thinking more about fall decorating (even though it's been on my mind a while).
I'm also worrying about pumpkins - my mom is usually a good supplier and she said several of her vines have died because of the drought.
My baking coworker Erin Lippitz recently made another stunning cake creation, and agreed to write a guest blog post about how she did it. She swears you can make it yourself, and even includes a trick for making the flowers stand out. (Hint: More cake.)
I keep swearing that I'm not going to blog much about crochet, and then blogging about it anyway. But this topic is at least a little more general. I'm pretty sure I'm at the beginning of a yarn habit, and wondering how to store that yarn.
When wrapping our bear hats and another gift for the birthday party we attended last weekend, I needed a way to tie together two different packages.
My decision to start crocheting again coincided nicely with our plans to attend a the first birthday party of a member of Rob's family.
