How are you and what are you up to this weekend? We have lots planned. We’re visiting the ski hill where my oldest son will start taking ski lessons this winter to do a little visit and view the changing leaves (and ride the ski lift!) Then we are going to try and squeeze in some passport pictures, a hair cut and our traditional post-hair cut visit to the Orange Julep.
Sunday is about swimming lessons and relaxing.
So last week I made two great recipes. I made this fantastic take on Millionares Bars. It was fantastic, vegan and gluten free. I brought it to a bunch of girls and they raved and said I should talk about it on my blog. I also made this recipe for Raspberry Cheesecake Breakfast Buns from the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook. Try both. If you are a bit more of a keen cook and are OK with spending a bit on ingredients go for the bars (I made it over two days). If you want something quick and easy with stuff you probably have on hand – go for the buns (or muffins in my case).
Can you believe the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook was published in 1999. 1999! I don’t know why but that made me all nostalgic and sad.
I’m working on a personal project taking a photo a day (or in reality several photos a day and choosing one) so I thought I’d share a few here. If you want to follow along I’m on Flickr (for just my 365 project it’s here). I also post a lot of the same to my Instagram.
What’s going on with you guys? And are you embracing the cooler weather or sad? (I’m embracing for probably the next week and then I’ll probably get all sad about it until the snow!)
