Well, I didn't up baking anything yesterday, just rested from the cheesecake marathon. So today I need to fill the cookie jar and make something for dessert. I am thinking snickerdoodles and apple crisp!

Well, what I cannot understand why baking, has always to be with sweet recipes, like
cakes, biscuits or whatever.
You can also bake with cooking savoury dishes, there are so many, and more healthy.

Finmar, baking is exactly as you describe it. But for the purposes of the thread, and the OP intent, we are sticking to mainly sweets or breads in this thread. Feel free to put the OTHER stuff in the daily "whats for dinner" thread.

I made the Weight Watchers Pineapple Angel Food Cake yesterday for a bbq and served it with fresh strawberries, pineapple chunks and a dollop of whipped cream. Everyone loved it. I will be trying your Pineapple Cookies soon.

Hope the weather cools for you and hope you are not near the fires that I hear are burning in the south.
the fires seem to be contained. it is again 104 as we speak. i love summer but this is a bit much. need to water plants in pots, again. probably not that hot in house but will have to turn air cond. on soon.

i love san francisco i have always gone there just for fun and food.

Yesterday I made apricot pistachio biscotti. They came together surprisingly fast and were very easy. Shame I was donating them to a fundraiser. Double decker brownies went with them.
I need to bake something for us tomorrow! Our neighbors need a baked item of thanks too.

Dear Alix, if that is the way you want it? It's ok with me.

Finmar (and anyone else who might have a question about this), we try to stick to what the Original Poster's intent was. Its just good netiquette to do so, and at DC we try to promote that for ease of navigating the boards.

I haven't baked yet today, but yesterday I baked a spice cake with a coconut topping. It is darned fine if I do say so myself. I might actually take a day off today as this weekend is going to be a baking frenzy for me. Its my oldest daughters birthday on Sunday so we will have the "family" celebration on Sunday (with Boston Banana Cream Pie/Cake) and on Saturday she will have all her friends over for a Safety Pin dinner and cake is on the menu for dessert.
