giving a little chat about the #vintagebakingbook and my collection of booklets later this afternoon at the @sharonhistoricalsociety and have a tiny bit of a nervous stomach, FYI. thinking about these glazed yeasted donuts is kind of helping(ish).
recipe for devil’s food sheet cake with sea foam frosting (aka seven minute frosting made with brown sugar rather than granulated) from the #vintagebakingbook is on @designsponge (😍) AND there is a giveaway . . . link in profile.
first slab pie of the season. not sure what took me so long. blackberry lime with a cream cheese crust. recipe for the 9-inch version is in the #vintagebakingbook and the recipe for this slab one can be found at @taste and is linked in profile.
recipe for everything cream cheese biscuits with roasted tomatoes is #onthenlog (link in profile). was inspired to bake with tomatoes by @squaremealroundtable and @whatannieseating and am so glad i did. check out the hashtag #wesaytomatoes for all of the other gorgeous and yummy tomato treats that my fellow peeps have made. 🍅❤️
home-made cinnamon sugar donut holes peeps. the one home-made treat my 12-year old prefers to its store-bought counterpart. read all about it and grab the recipe on @little.sous - link in profile.
PSA for peeps who are into make-ahead treats and being excessively praised by house guests: this blueberry baked french toast was assembled A WEEK AGO and frozen. yesterday, it was transferred to the fridge and then baked off this morning and it was PERFECT. link to recipe in profile.
butterscotch pecan curls from the #vintagebakingbook. house guests were pleased.
apple pie in august = #wwllt
banana pudding. new favorite thing. #recipedevelopment
mile high s’more pie. #recipedevelopment i can get behind.
buttermilk pound cake saturday.
chocolate-marshmallow-walnut fudge with sea salt from the #vintagebakingbook - the “newsworthy” capture. recipe linked in bio. 📸: @deblindsey for the @washingtonpost.
no-bake chocolate cheesecake: posting this a day late for #nationalcheesecakeday due to my ambivalence about food holidays.
#latergram of the birthday boy’s cake. not my best work (weirdly curdled frosting, anyone?), but certainly my best cake stand. @aheirloom = ❤️.
my oldest (not permitted to tag him - 🤣) is now 15, and yeasted glazed donuts seemed only fitting (not to mention the fact he requested them). happy bday, my sweetest. ❤️
dreamy cream biscuits for a dismal day. #recipedevelopment
. . . and we have another morning in which the recipes being developed for work are (miraculously) enjoyed by the children that require feeding: white sausage gravy and cream biscuits for the (almost) 15 year-old’s breakfast. also, how come no one told me how f’ing delicious white sausage gravy is??!!
