Not Even Re-MOAT-ly

Not Even Re-MOAT-ly
When your kid wants a castle cake, but castle cakes are too expensive: “Why is there a beach cake in front of it?” “It’s a moat.” “With palm trees?” “… yes.” “…” “…” “So should we talk about the stairs, or …?” “You know wha [...]

This slow cooker kielbasa and sauerkraut is flavorful and made with just the addition of beer and brown sugar – easy, delicious and perfect for parties! Two major disclaimers right off the bat: #1: I have never been a fan of kielbasa. #2: I am even less of a fan of sauerkraut. Yet, I am hopelessly in love with this recipe. It doesn̵ [...]

Did You See That Ludicrous Display Last Night?
Football cake submissions are up again, which I assume means it’s football season. These accurately reflect my feelings on this matter.   In fact, bakers seem to share my general ambivalence toward sports, and have provided us with all KINDS of unenthusiastic football treats to choose from. I swear this one’s being sarcas [...]

Sunday Sweets For Puzzle Lovers

Sunday Sweets For Puzzle Lovers
I used to be embarrassed by how much I like jigsaw puzzles, but now I just brew a pot of tea, throw an afghan over my lap for the cats, and embrace it. (Yep, nights are PRET-TY wild here at the Yates household.) And since today is National Puzzle Day, we’ll need some cakes to go with this tea, right? Look at this sweetie! With the litt [...]

The Weekend Dish

Thumbnail for 8932
Hello hello! Is your weekend off to a great start? We got a little bit of snow yesterday and the forecast is calling for a little more today and tomorrow; maybe Joseph will actually get to use his snow gear that we bought him for Christmas! I’m knee-deep in getting my pantry in order and hope to finish that up today. What are you up to? [...]

Friday Favs 1/27/17
A few of my favorite new submissions this week:   Would you believe there is a gross true story that goes along with this amputated foot cake? Of course you would. Well anyway, there is. Moving on…   At first I thought this was a horse sinking belly-up into a dark pond: In fact, if that was what the baker had been going for [...]

Please Be A Joke Please Be A Joke Please Be A Joke…
A couple of eagle-eyed wreckporters found a local ad I think you’ll agree speaks for itself: “Top of the line,” “cakes start at $200,” and “no rude comments”? Yep, nothing I can add here. But in case you were wondering, “Just how long is Minnie’s chin??” It’s this long: All y [...]

No Knead Bread

This classic no knead bread recipe from Jim Lahey is easy, requires minimal handling, and is a great recipe for beginner bread bakers. Have you hopped on the no knead bread train yet? After seeing it in countless places over the years, I finally dove in this week and gave it a try. With hardly any hands-on time and quite forgiving rise times, [...]

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Do You Hear What I Hear?
We all mishear things from time to time. Heck, I still think Elton John just wanted a hug from Tony Danza. However, there are certain levels to auditory misunderstanding, which thanks to today’s bakers I can now illustrate and then make snarky comments about. WOOHOO! Level 1: The Simple Mistake This is the one anyone can make, since at [...]

Admit it, minions: every time I show you a falling-over, heinously bad wedding wreck, you judge the couple a little. You think they didn’t pay enough. You think they tried to get the moon for a plumber’s crack budget. I get it. But what if I told you this is the venue for today’s wreck: Pretty, right? And probably worth a p [...]

Top 10 List: Best Muffin Recipes

Thumbnail for 8920
About six years ago, I rounded up my ten favorite recipes in each category that I have here on Brown Eyed Baker. Needless to say, I’ve made MANY more recipes since then! Over the last few years, I’ve periodically updated the lists so that they are always current with my favorites. In the depths of winter, I love keeping a stash of [...]
