Weekend Baking {Menu Plan}

We may earn money from the companies or products mentioned in this post.

I’ve never spent quite so much time in the kitchen as I did this last weekend. Maybe it was because I finally got some major cleaning done during the week, or maybe I was just really excited about some of the ideas I have cooked up for you. I don’t know. I do know, that by the end of the day yesterday my feet were killing me!

Here’s a little run down of what I made:

Sourdough bread.  I made my first starter ever last Sunday, and was itching the whole week for it to be ready to use. Unfortunately my bread machine decided it can’t sit still anymore, so it pulled it’s own cord partway through rising. Thankfully my mom taught me bread making as a child, so I easily adapted and oven baked it.

Mini Apple pies. I tried making these a month or so ago and they failed. They failed again. I don’t think I’ll be attempting apple pie with phyllo dough anymore. It’s just too tricky to work with.

Chocolate Butterflies. These were so fun to create, and turned out so pretty. Although Mark’s reaction to the books in the fridge will be right up there on things I will never forget – “Umm, did you know there’s a couple of books in the fridge?” Yes honey, I put them there.  Find the tutorial at We Lived Happily Ever After.

Chocolate chip Banana Muffins and Yogurt Oatmeal parfaits.  I’ve made these before, and whipped them up quick Saturday so I could do a little photo shoot. I even bought some pretty flowers just for show (and really I love having fresh flowers in the house!)

Nutella Banana Fudgesicles. This happened. It oh so happened. Mark bought our very first jar of Nutella and I went wild! Last Sunday it was nutella no-bakes (just switch out the peanut butter in this recipe with nutella). This week it was fudgesicles and sandwiches. The girls loved their Nutella and Honey sandwiches.

  1. Oh my! That butterfly is so cute~
    I have not dare to step into the baking world though I've baked cupcakes and one, just ONE mini cake. Too much hard work 😛

  2. I'm very impressed… as a non-baker I can't get over your determination. The butterfly is amazing and I'm still laughing about how your husband is probably thinking you have really lost your marbles putting books in the freezer.

    1. Thanks Diane. I find I can be more creative in baking, as long as I have a base recipe to go from. Glad I could make you laugh a little.
