So this happened today. I baked a batch of the King Arthur chocolate chip cookies recipe that bethzaring had raved about a few years back. I made the huge size, each one needing 1/4 cup dough, making 20 cookies. By the time I finally got them mixed, I just wanted to get it all over with. I am so not a cookie baker.

BTW, they are delicious.Click image for larger version

Yesterday, I baked a couple of loaves of dark sourdough rye, to make some sandwiches with some corned beef that I finally cooked! (it was still good - had a "sell by 5-27 on it, even though I bought it before St Patties day).

My first strawberry-rhubarb pie for my FIL's birthday. I should have told DH to get refrigerated pie crust instead of frozen. It fell apart when I tried to make it look all fancy Oh well, it was delicious anyway. Click image for larger version

That looks and sounds delicious, GG. I haven't had strawberry rhubarb pie since my grandma made them back in the day. LOVED them then, and am sure I'd love it now.

Nice breads, pepper. And GG, the pie looks just fine and fancy. Taste is important, though, so you nailed it.


In my quest to use up supplies, I did more baking yesterday. I made a pan of from-scratch cornbread that is now almost half-gone. I also tried a new bread machine recipe from a book I bought (but had not yet used) a long time ago: Betty Crocker's Best Bread Machine Cookbook. The loaf is a multigrain style and includes a cup of 7-grain multigrain cereal (I used Bob's Red Mill) in the recipe. Haven't tried it yet, but it sure smelled good when I baked it yesterday.

No baking today, so I won't have to listen to Himself laugh and, once again, say "I thought you said you didn't bake?".

Thank you My MIL always made a strawberry-rhubarb pie for my FIL's birthday and he hadn't had one since she went into the nursing home in 2015 (you may remember she passed away last year). He loved it and that's the most important thing.

I've said it before and I'll say it again GG, you are one outstanding daughter in law.
