It's getting late, so I better get started!
Sounds pretty good to me

I plan to bake some choc chip drop cookies & make my 1st attempt at butter caramels. As I want to make a desert pudding cake with it. So when baked you'll get some lovely & warm caramel oozing out. However I need to try caramels as I've never done them before.

My first foray into "regular" baking since the start of my allergy diet. I have done some sugar/gluten/dairy/egg free stuff!

I am making several trays of my triple chocolate ganache brownies. Some will be cut in small circles before being coated with the ganache and decorated with green fondant shamrocks to take to church on Sunday. The rest will be cut into two inch cubes to be included in "Minecraft" cake for my BIL and nephew who love playing the computer game. Some will be coated with regular ganache and others in white chocolate ganache tinted green for "grass". They will be stacked to represent a scene from their Minecraft world.

Made dough for stollen today and will bake tomorrow. Almost finished eating 3 lb rye bread baked three days ago; hope to start another batch of rye bread dough a day or two from now.

Getting ready to make a batch of kaiser rolls. We bought a 7-pound barbecued pork butt from Glenn's daughter Thursday as part of a fundraiser for her daughter's soccer team.

There's nothing yummier than a huge kaiser roll piled with smoky barbecue and lots of good sauce. We're gonna have a great dinner tonight.

Save me a seat right next to the BBQ grill. If you drop a pound or two of meat on my plate, I won't complain. I will be too busy cleaning my plate.

Can you please post your recipe for Kaiser rolls. I'm not happy with my recipe. Thanx

I baked the Swedish almond cake (Recipe - Swedish Visiting Cake) again. That is one great, easy cake.
