Tonight's blog was an easy one as for the past few days I've been baking a whole series of first-time recipes and having a great time. Some of them have come from email cookbooks and some, I've got to say, from good ol' Facebook. Regardless of whence they came, they sounded good and have proven to be just that and that... was the inspiration for this blog.
BAKING UP A STORM
By Patty Lynn
I don’t know what’s got into me, I’m baking up a storm,
I’ve come across these recipes, I’m dying to perform.
With flour, sugar, eggs and oh, the chemistry’s compelling.
The more I bake, I just can’t take the lusciousness I’m smelling!
This time of year I’m prompted by the apples and the pumpkin,
The cinnamon and cloves combine, the taste is really sumpthin’.
From applesauce to Apple pie, dessert breads by the score,
Bread pudding, crisps, that just can’t miss, such sweet things they’ll adore.
Zucchini is a real surprise, an addition that’s incredible.
You can make it like spaghetti or instead of bread, quite edible.
And oh, how that reduces carbs and calories too boot!
I tried it for some bread sticks, a fantastic substitute!
And yesterday I made a bread with sweet potatoes mashed
That got some rave reviews and oohs and ahs, quite unabashed.
Next I’ll make this recipe for healthy breakfast “muffins.”
They’re small & made in cupcake tins, if good, there’s no discussion.
They’re filled with turkey sausage and an egg, so each has protein.
If we can keep our figures & stay healthy, I say, “Go team!”
But soon I’ll have a house guest who I know loves CC cookies
I’m sure that you have figured out that’s chocolate chipper goodies.
So I will absolutely make a batch to feed the craving,
And if the baking that I’ve done succeeds, there’ll be some raving.
But bottom line I’ve had a ball just trying out these recipes
And hopefully I’ll find that some will grow to be my specialties.
