The Weekend Dish: 4/22/2017

Thumbnail for 9660
Hello and happy Saturday to you! I hope you had a fantastic week and that your weekend is off to a wonderful start. Nothing big planned for our weekend; I have a little baking I’d like to do, and am planning to pick back up with my purging in the kitchen. I’ve been going a drawer or cabinet at a time when I have a few extra minute [...]

Friday Favs 4/21/17
PARENTAL NOTE: Best keep the little ones away today. I think this is mostly safe for work, though. Mostly. [evil grin]   Some of my favorite new submissions this week: I’m sensing there’s a story here: Just me?   And I kinda love how this bakery advertises that they’re 50 years old – so mature! so establis [...]

Amish Ham & Pea Salad

Not That Long Ago, In A Bakery Far From Okay…
In case you missed it, Jen and John just built something insane, which they ROCKED at Star Wars Celebration last weekend. I feel like a Star Wars theme is appropriate.   Quick, Luke, use the 4rth! (It was then Obi Wan realized getting braces was a bad idea.)   “It’s as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, [...]

The Basket Case

The Basket Case
Ahh, those pesky unsold Easter cakes. I feel your pain, bakers. Or rather, I *see* it: And that IS quite the pickle. But never fear. I AM HERE TO HELP. Listen, like everything in life, this problem can be easily solved by a little thing called re-branding. So. What do you see here? An evil lamb cake? Or is it an evil CLOWN cake? Hmmm? Righ [...]

Boston Cream Pie (II)

Thumbnail for 9649
This Boston Cream Pie recipe features a simple vanilla cake filled with homemade pastry cream and topped with a chocolate ganache. Six years ago, I made my grandma a Boston cream pie for her 91st birthday when she requested something that involved “white cake and pudding”. It was the first time I had made Boston cream pie from scr [...]

Dental Training
Hi, I’m here to pick up a cake? It’s the “Happy Birthday Brittany” one. Ah, no, see, that second “Birthday” should be “Brittany.”    No no, this has Brittany twice. I need “Happy Birthday” on it. Ok, now you’ve just combined them into one word. There shou [...]

Strawberry Pie

Thumbnail for 9646
This fresh strawberry pie sits on my favorite pie crust, is held together with a delicious homemade glaze, and adorned with the best whipped cream. A perfect summer dessert! Anyone who hails from Pittsburgh most likely holds strawberry pie very close to their heart. Our hometown diner chain has sold strawberry pies for as long as I can rememb [...]

Salted Dark Chocolate Granola

Thumbnail for 9644
Salted Dark Chocolate Granola is a deliciously crunchy ice cream topping, a rich addition to your morning yogurt, or just a good chocolate snack for your afternoon pick-me-up. I really love granola but until recently I only thought of it as breakfast food. I might occasionally pull out my Chunky Tropical Granola recipe for a snack, but more [...]

These Bakers REALLY Hate Drawing

These Bakers REALLY Hate Drawing
Tracee asked her baker to write “Good Luck at Regionals” and then add a volleyball. Which, technically, is exactly what the baker did: ::facepalm:: (Anyone else wonder what would have happened if they’d had an actual volleyball in the bakery? Because these are the mental images that bring me joy.)   Jordan just wanted [...]

Happy holiday weekend to you! Are you dying Easter eggs, hunting for Easter eggs, making deviled eggs or engaging in other egg-related activities today? We’ll be dying them here at our house, and I’ll be prepping desserts for tomorrow! I’m planning a Boston cream pie (new recipe!) and a fresh strawberry pie. I’m also m [...]

The Great Easter Fleecing (aka, Better Run, Buns)
Oh, how the Easter tables have turned, sweet cheeks. That’s right, while you bunnies were off terrorizing chicks, someone bigger and badder moved to the top of the bakery chain.   So now it’s YOUR turn to face eggs-termination. Not to mention more of my Easter puns.   PREPARE… …for the LAMB-ENTATION. MWAH [...]

Sausage Cheese Balls

This is post is sponsored recipe development on behalf of Fisher Nuts. Thank you for continuing to support the brands that make My Baking Addiction possible. Have you ever made [...]
