Pumpkin Quinoa Muffins

I know there’s no topic more boring than the weather, but it’s really messing up my baking vibes this Fall. This should be the time of year where crisp, cool breezes are coming through my open windows, a pumpkin-scented candle is burning, and I’m happily in the kitchen baking the the day away. Instead, the […]

May 21, 2017 Baked Sunday Mornings
Old-School Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I already have an Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that I love, but I was still looking forward to trying the Baked Occasions version this week. This is a pretty standard cookie recipe, with a few exceptions: Instead of adding the rolled oats whole, you grind the majority of them up in a food processor first […]

Brown Sugar Maple Whoopie Pies

Happy Easter! For the second time recently, we’re posting a holiday recipe on the actual holiday! Well, the rest of the group is, but I’m going rogue. They’re making a Mega Easter Pie (“a meat and cheese utopia” as it’s dubbed in the book), but I’m not really into it. Check out their posts here. […]

Oatmeal Raisin Bacon Cookies

Obviously this Bacon Mission was a mission in two parts for me, as I had to try to incorporate it into some form of baked good. I’ve made Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies twice in the past without success. For the first batch I roasted the bacon in the oven, and didn’t like how it was […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Heartland Turtle Bars

August 26, 2012 Baked Sunday Mornings

  It’s been a hot minute since my last Baked Sunday Morning! Mostly just because of other baking projects I’ve had going on this summer, plus the fact that these recipes tend to be so involved, and sometimes you just don’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen during a nice sunny […]

Strawberry Jam Oatmeal Squares

April 27, 2012 Bars & Squares

My go-to topic of of conversation for awkward co-worker/job interview/elevator situations is the weather. I have about 3984692 different ways to comment on it or complaint about it, and it saves me everytime. I love it. I can also branch off into fashion/accessory topics and anecdotes (rainboots, forgetting an umbrella, losing mittens or sunglasses) and health/lifestyle issues (humidity headaches, […]

Oatmeal Cream Cheese Butterscotch Bars

October 27, 2011 Bars & Squares

How do you organize the recipes you want to make? I would say I’m a bit of a hot mess in the area. I have a folder of favourites on my work computer (categories: Dinner, Treats, Breakfast, BBQ, Other Stuff), another system on my personal computer at home (categories: Treats, Pioneer Woman), a huge stack […]

Maple Oatmeal Scones

January 24, 2010 Muffins & Scones

After dropping off the Oat & Apple Crumble Topped Muffins to Lydia & Andrew last weekend, I got this text from Lyd on Monday: “Thx for my muffins! I’m having two a day!” Success! I wanted to make something else this weekend, in the all important category to new moms: Things I Can Eat With […]
