Open Up Your Plans and Damn You're Free

Everytime we get some free time around here (meaning: Aaron's home during daylight and not spending four God-forsaken hours to mow the yard), instead of running to the sewing area and working on the two three baby blankets I need to make and work on the quilt (um, yeah, hi, over-analyzing it, I know) I've been running to the kitchen instead.

To bake.

It's addicting.

I thought my next perfected gluten-free recipe would be brownies. Turns out, no, notsomuch. Can't get the baking time right with the balance of ingredients. It's damn infuriating.

And then I made my dad a German Chocolate cake and ohmyheavenlyfuck, that was awesome. But I'm lazy. So... haven't posted that yet. Argh.

But! I did do this!


Pumpkin muffins!

Yeah. We ate them all weekend long. And did puzzles. And played Legos. And made spaghetti pie (it's baked too!).

In recap: we ate like pigs and played like kids. Good weekend.

We do a cake thing in our department at work and when I had to decide what I wanted, I thought, "German Chocolate Cake!" It's what I asked for as a tiny little kid (like 4-years-old to 12-years-old ... you know, until the lazy bastards stopped making me cakes) and now I get to relive the joy of NUTS and COCONUT in my frosting. Yum!

Thanks for reminding me.

I'm with tonkelu, I love that (ohmyheavenlyfuck) and I'm going to have to make sure I find away to use it hear real soon.

I hear you on the baking thing. The almost fall-like weather we've been having in my neck of the woods is getting me in the mood to bake and cook good old comfort foods (chili, stew, etc.) I want a recipe of those pumpkin muffins. They look to die for! Pretty please.

I love German Chocolate cake. I love muffins too. I don't bake much and your post has me wondering what's wrong with me that I don't bake more often?
