To all who celebrate… Merry Christmas!

I hope the holiday is wonderful, joyous, and filled with all of the things you like. (Any Dorie recipes on people’s tables this year?)

And to those of us who don’t celebrate, have a wonderful day off.

LYL: Gingerbread Baby Cakes

Let’s see ‘em!

The gorgeous example below was baked by Karen of Karen’s Kitchen Stories. You can see the recipe on her blog.


November hosts!

Alisa of Easier Than Pie will host the Buttermilk Crumb Muffins on November 6.  (Happy Birthday!)

Woo hoo!  Looking forward to another delicious month!

LYL: Nectarine Chiffon Upside Down Cake

Aaaaaaah!  It’s Tuesday!  Sorry folks, Labor Day messed with me.

Thank you Marlise and Susan for hosting.   The recipe and gorgeous photos on their blogs!

  This is the deliciousness that was found at Marlise’s house.

 This was at Susan’s house.  My invitations must have gotten lost in the mail.

***Side note – Links sometimes take a minute or two (or ten) to show up.  When you post multiple times, Blogger assumes it is spam and none of it posts.

September hosts!

Here they are…

September 4 – Nectarine Upside-Down Chiffon Cake – Marlise of The Double Trouble Kitchen and Susan of The Little French Bakery

September 18 – Whole Wheat Bread – Michele of Veggie Num Nums and Teresa of The Family That Bakes Together

Looking forward to these!  Hosts, could you please send a photo a day or two ahead of time to our gmail account so I can have them to post with the LYL post?  Thanks!

LYL: Berry Galette

Drumroll Please – August Hosts!

I can’t believe it’s almost August.  We’re bidding a fond farewell to Marion Cunningham and celebrating what would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday this month.  Bake on!

Can’t wait to see the gorgeous photos!

They have the recipe if you STILL haven’t bought the book and need it.  Links only, please!

Hosts for July!

July 3, 2012- Hazelnut Biscotti, p. 315 hosted by Jodi of Homemade and Wholesome and Katrina of Baking and Boys

July 17, 2012- Semolina Bread, p. 102 hosted by Renee of The Way to my Family’s Heart and Anna of Keep it Luce

July 31, 2012- Blueberry Nectarine Pie, p. 384 Hilary of Manchego’s Kitchen and Liz of That Skinny Chick Can Bake

I know there was a little stress for some folks because we opted for three Tuesdays this month.  No worries everyone!  As long as you bake along with at least one of these, you are eligible to host.  And if three recipes are too many for you, do what you can.

Bake on!

July Recipes! Anyone out there anxious to host?

I am super stoked about this month. I have vowed to make one pie per week for the entire summer. This is to remedy the fact that I am an absolutely horrible pie maker. When I say horrible, I mean it. (This is Laurie, not Jules, I am sure Jules is a fab pie maker. I just know she is.) I was so excited that several pies/tarts were suggested for this month. However, we did not want to overload the month on sweets, so there is savory as well. Happiness for all!

If you would like to host one of these recipes (two needed each recipe), please throw your name in the hat by leaving a comment below.  This is a NO CHAT post.  I’ll close this post on the 22nd and announce the hosts on the 23rd.
