  • Maple Blueberry Coffee Cake

    I love when Lisa gets on a “I’m gonna bake treats” kick.

Perfect! [donotprint] Chris […]

Lisa says: “With a Frosty Top”? What […]

  • Taste & Create VII: Whole Wheat Potato Bread

    I’m not sure how this happens, butevery single Taste & Create event ends up with me baking. This month I was paired with the truthfully-titled Heaven is Chocolate, Cheese, and Carbs, a relatively new food blog featuring a bunch of baked breads and treats. I was really close to making the awesome-sounding Double Chocolate Caramel […]
