Do you enjoy baking?

Any favourite recipes in your collection?

What do you like to buy from the bakery?

Any family favourites, homemade or otherwise?

Do you enjoy baking? Yes! Must learn to make cakes and cupcakes from scratch since I like eating them so much. ;)

Any favourite recipes in your collection? Banana bread (also works as zucchini loaf) and blueberry muffins.

What do you like to buy from the bakery? I'd love to buy pastries, so that's why I avoid the bakery most of the time. In the summer I tend to buy muffins rather than bake and make the house hotter, but the recipes tend to be high in fat and sugar compared to homemade. :(

Any family favourites, homemade or otherwise? The boys love blueberry muffins. I'm not sure what flavour is Hubby's favourite but he generally eats up what I make! Banana and zucchini loaves go fast around here as well. And I really like carrot muffins, but I'm still looking for the perfect recipe. ;) (The current one I use is good, but it's not quite like ones from the store...)

Flat apple pie sounds great!

I've been alternating between banana bread recipes depending on what I have for ingredients - I don't buy sour cream often because of my dairy issue, so I have a one-loaf recipe that calls for buttermilk instead (and I just sour the milk I have with a little vinegar, almost-instant buttermilk!). I do think the original recipe is my fave, though, and I'm so glad I got it from you! Easy to make and yummy!

Ooh, both the cheesecake and the Reese-like cake sound awesome! And I've got to find a buttercream frosting recipe for cookies and such!

Must keep an eye open for bakery discounts around here!

Unfortunately, the bakery discounts are hit or miss for me. They don't have certain days they mark those down they like do the meat.

I do enjoy baking. I usually bake with the kiddos.

We like to make cakes, breads and cookies.

I usually avoid the bakery...but I do love croissants.

I love pumpkin bread, banana bread and my mom's sugar cookies.

I hit a bakery markdown at Walmart yesterday. It was a really good one for me. I was able to get the kids donuts with chocolate frosting and sprinkles, Mickey Mouse cookies, some cheese rolls, and some jelly donuts all on clearance. :)
