I {heart} baking

This is what I’ve been up to for the last couple of days. My grandpuppy, Sugar, turned 1 year old (in people years) yesterday, and my daughter invited some of Sugar’s doggie friends over today to celebrate. Of course, I had to bake some treats for the doggies, so I whipped up a batch of these yummies. All kinds of good stuff in there – banana, apple sauce, carrots, whole wheat flour, spelt flour and oats. Honestly, there’s nothing in there that I wouldn’t eat. But I didn’t try them. The dogs loved them, though.doggie-treats2I packaged them up like this:

And we must have some goodies for the people, right? What could be better than some pupcakes? Got the idea from the Martha Stewart website. Very time consuming, but sooo cute! And very yummy. The ears and eyes are made of chocolate, and the noses are Raisinettes. pupcakes

And because this past Monday was my son-in-law’s birthday, I baked a little something just for him – a Beer Batter Bread with Gruyere and Rosemary. It smelled divine when I baked it this morning, and I’m sure it will taste just as good. I got the recipe from the Bake at 350 blog, here. Super simple. Here it is in all its glory:

I just love the way my house smells when I bake. I do NOT like the way my kitchen looks afterward. I need somebody to stand next to me and clean up as I go. Any volunteers?
