I haven't baked anything for a while; my last effort was Laurie's Coconut cream pound cake. Most excellent! Then my doctor gave me heck and put me on a very restricted diet - no goodies, not even any bread. Boo ho. So I think I'll start baking for some of the old folks in the 'hood. Just to keep busy. And for the kids where I used to work. Sticky buns, yeah!

I just made some oatmeal-raisin-nut cookies using the recipe on the Quaker Oats box. WOW!! Are they good. The recipe didn't ask for nuts, but I like nuts so I added about 1/2 cup. Yum. I'm going to have to control myself.

I am making chocolate chip cookies, but they have toasted almonds and cinnamon in them to make them a little different. I also decided to add a 1/4 a tsp of ancho chilli powder to them. I just have to bake them latter, but the cookie dough tasted delicous.

I am with you katie E, I need to watch myself. I eat way too much when baked goods are around. I mean a couple of days ago someone made biscuits at school and I ate about 8 or 9, which is a lot, but I cannot control myself.

I made gluten free banana flaxseed muffins for DH, diabetic banana muffins for my Dad, and am trying to get the energy to make myself some oatmeal muffins.

I also just got a job catering a ladies tea on April 3rd, making muffins and loaves for 100. So I am trying to figure out quantities and varieties. Thinking of lemon, banana, and zucchini/pineapple breads with cranberry/orange, blueberry, and oatmeal raisin muffins. Anyone have any thoughts?

Laurie, all those sound wonderful. Do you need to have them all sliced etc?
