Unfortunately I'm not going to have a TWD post this week or next. I'm in the process of moving into my first home, so everything is boxed up for the next couple of weeks. I'll be back & ready to go on the 8th though!!

TWD - Applesauce Spice Bars

Ahh Tuesday...how I love thee! This week's TWD recipe was chosen by Karen from Something Sweet by Karen, & she chose Dorie's Applesauce Spice Bars. Let me just tell you right now...these babies made me soooooo ready for fall! Fall is my favorite season, & the bars reminded me of everything wonderful about fall. The apples & spices in this were just fantastic, & I will definitely be making these again.

Check out Karen's blog for the recipe, & the TWD blogroll for everyone's amazing bars!

TWD - Classic Banana Bundt Cake

It's Tuesday again, & that can only mean one thing...Tuesdays With Dorie!! Oh how I love Tuesdays! This week Mary of The Food Librarian chose the Classic Banana Bundt Cake. Ever since I was little, my mom has always saved any leftover "too ripe" bananas by putting them in the freezer. This is a habit I have picked up, so I was more than excited to have a reason to use a few of my little frozen banana friends. I love recipes that are easy to throw together, & this was no exception...I had it in the pan & ready for the oven in no time flat. I followed Dorie's suggestion & covered it with a loose foil tent about halfway through, & it came out just perfect. I had every intention of making the glaze until I realized that I was out of powered sugar. Say what?! I always have powdered sugar on hand, so I was sad because I love glaze. Ah well...I knew I wouldn't have a problem eating it plain. I definitely didn't have a problem chowing down on this baby, the cake is so moist & lovely...I ate 2 pieces today, & I'm planning on having another in the morning. I'm not ashamed!

Another amazing Dorie recipe under my belt. What will they come up with next?! Head on over to Mary's blog for the recipe, & the TWD blogroll for everyone else's creations!

New Blog!

Welcome to my new blog! I've been at this blogging thing for well over a year now, so I thought it's high time that I make myself a "grown-up" blog. Thanks for coming along for the ride!
