Needed an excuse to turn the oven on to heat the kitchen so there is a blueberry pound cake in the oven. It is so cold in the kitchen , my hands are like ice.

Oh and I suppose I should contribute what I am baking today. Marbled chocolate banana bread and chocolate sheet cake, both from a Cooking Light book, for a sleepover with my gals from school for tomorrow night :-D

I just made a blueberry orange coffee cake. The price of blueberries hasn't been awful the past two weeks; and we love them so.

It's a nice big bundt pan cake, too...Plenty to have in bed with hot coffee tomorrow morning.

About the easiest cookie I know of:

CONGO COOKIES

2/3 Cup Butter
1 Pound Light Brown Sugar (about 2 1/3 cups)
3 Eggs, Beaten
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 Cups Sifted Flour (Sift, Then Measure)
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Chopped Nuts (Walnuts or Pecans)
6 Ounces Chocolate Chips

Melt butter, add to sugar and cool.

Add beaten eggs and vanilla to sugar mixture.

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt; add flour
mixture to butter mixture, stirring well.

Mix in nuts and chocolate chips.

Spread in buttered 13" X 9" X 2" baking pan.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 to 30 minutes.

Cool on rack for 10 to 15 minutes, then cut into about
36 bars; leave in pan until completely cool.

Just pulled two loaves of 5 minute Artisan Bread and have eaten three slices all ready smothered in butter.

That is so funny because I intend to make Shirley O Corriher's Blueberry Whipping Cream Pound Cake once my water is turned back on. The weather has been so bad and I have been so tired that I put this baking off but I have everything in the house and I do not want anything to spoil before I get to it.

I did a really stupid thing, too. I made three banana breads and gave two away but I have been so stressed that I forgot to put mine in the freezer. It was wrapped and left in a different room (part of the house that is cooler that I don't use often) and forgotten--yes, you guessed it. It molded by the time I remembered where it was. I tossed it out, tin foil pan and all.

I can attest to the fact that stress can indeed make one forgetful. Sometimes I think dementia is catchy. lol
