2016 was the year that I seriously began baking. It started with the desire for homemade zucchini bread and grew from there. 2017 is going to be a year of many more new adventures for me in the kitchen, (I’ve never made a pie before!) so I thought I would honor the best recipes of 2016.
- Cream Cheese Cranberry Bread
- Lemon Blueberry Bread
- Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Moist Pumpkin Bread
- Molasses Cookies
Oh, did you think you were safe from pumpkin recipes since it’s long past Halloween? Well dear reader, you don’t know me very well. I will push the pumpkin all the way until Thanksgiving.
These were delicious sugar cookies, however the pumpkin didn’t really come through. Despite that, I would definitely make them again.
I didn’t realize until I had mixed all my ingredients together that I was supposed to be baking these in glass loaf pans. I don’t have any so I used regular loaf pans and began checking the bread after about 35 minutes. My total bake time ended up being around 50 minutes. I also skipped the pecans.
This was divine. The flavor was a perfect blend of pumpkin and banana and the texture moist. Perfect to bring as an addition to any holiday party this season.
I haven’t made homemade cookies since I was little and I would make them with my aunt every time I came over to her house. So I went with something simple for my first go in oh say, 15+ years. Chocolate chip cookies.
Now these tasted fine, but I’m not a huge fan of cake-like cookies. So if you love soft cookies, this is just the thing for you.
Rainy Saturday mornings shall fear my BFF and I for the rest of their rainy lives. You will not deter us from our funzies! We cannot be stopped. We are not well behaved women.
First, we had a show down with the Bag Book Sale at the library. $10 later, those books didn’t stand a chance.
