Friday I baked a dozen onion bagels and a quick chocolate cake topped with a quick chocolate ganache frosting.

Just finished baking 3 1/2 dozen cake mix cookies. This time I made white chocolate chip/macadamia nut ones. Turned out great and should last us as dessert for most of the week.

Forgot to post this yesterday....I baked a banana bread using a recipe I found here on DC. I used my largest bread pan, but unfortunately it blurped over the sides and made quite a mess in the oven :(. And on the pan. It did however come out of the pan nicely after some chiseling of the the "blurped" parts to separate it from the pan. It tastes great, so I guess that's all that matters. I should have taken a picture, it kind of looked like one that another DC'er posted not so long ago that I think was his wife's debacle. I'm thinking maybe there was some baking soda that got trapped in a bubble of egg or something, instant volcano, the batter was pretty fluid too, maybe a bit too much liquid.

Yesterday a friend mentioned that another couple in the community could use some of my brownies....so they are in the oven. Not sure my friends' idea was completely altruistic but mine is...except for the corner pieces

No baking today, but I'm making ww bread and ww pitas tomorrow. The ww bread is for open-faced fresh-from-the-garden tomato on toast with homemade mayo...yum! The pita is because I'm making more hummus.

I'm not much of a baker. Dh usually does all the baking for work & home. I was in the mood to bake so I made a apple/walnut, maple cake. Made the house smell good.
