I'm not much of a baker. I can make cookies or cake from a box, but anything from scratch? Nope, never done it...by myself that is. My mom and I used to bake Christmas cookies from scratch when I was a kid (of course she was telling me exactly what to do). It was always so fun and she had the best recipes from this cookie book that was falling apart. I wonder if she still has it, I'll have to ask her.
Anyhow, we received this beautiful pie dish and mini pie ramikens from a family member this past week. I must say I'm really excited to bake my first pie all by myself. I have no idea which one I will do...actually...probably pecan because I'm addicted to pecan pies. Although, it would be cool to make a fruit pie like cherry or peach. We shall see!
She also gave us this really cool book with so many unique pie recipes. I love the idea of baking a mini pie in a mason jar, how neat is that? Another goal I just thought of is that I want to bake a cake from scratch this year. We now have a cake stand that can also be used as a punch bowl (totally rad) and I really want to show off my skills! Lack there of for right now, but I think I can do it.
When the time comes, I'll be posting pie and cake recipes on here. It might be awhile, I just have to warn you! We're almost two months away from the wedding and there is still lots to do. I will say that I will probably try to make a healthier version of my favorite baked goods with no sugar or refined flour. We'll see if it works!
By the way do any of you out there love to bake? Any recommendations for a delicious pie or cake?
I hope all of you are having a good weekend. Mine has been busy, busy, busy so far! We're having the family over so we have to make the house look presentable ;) Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there including my own pop! Thanks Dad, for being the coolest ever :)
