I made the Spinach/Feta/Peppadew muffins from this month's "Bon Appetit". I don't like feta, so I subbed some fresh chevre. They turned out really great, and so pretty, too! The recipe made a dozen muffins, so most are going into the freezer.

Just pulled a few whole wheat loaves from the oven and have dough rising in the fridge that I made with some fresh rosemary, basil & garlic from the garden. It will be baked into a 12" bun for a muffaletta for the Steelers game on Sunday.

Well now that the weather has turned cooler I will be baking a lot more. Today I baked Peach Cobbler from fresh peaches, along with Black Bean Brownies and a nice loaf of banana bread. I had the very ripe bananas in the freezer. It seems that when I make my bread from frezer bananas the bread gets a lot moister.

This afternoon I baked some darling little chocolate Madeleines, the most delicious, moist French tea cakes of them all. They also taste ace with morning coffee. I made an a** load - 60! In my house there are many gannets.

That is my favourite way to "pay" for help.....with food! Sounds like a yummy deal. But sorry to hear your DH is on disability.

I actually didn't bake this today - it was an order last weekend but I thought I would show a picture. The birthday boy (and his Mom) were very pleased. They took them to a Vancouver Canadians minor league game (hence the C).

Today I am decorating a 6" heart cake I had in the freezer from a canceled wedding cake order. It is still nice and fresh and just needs some fondant and decorations for My MIL's birthday.

Edit - the picture is of the baseball cupcakes I described in the first paragraph.

Actually, those are the baseball cupcakes - they are chocolate. But thank you so much for your compliment.

The heart cake is one that I am just working on decorating now and will post a picture later. It is cappuccino with a mocha buttercream filling.
