So the baking.

The biggest baking successes of the weekend were the two things I made on Saturday, totally randomly.

The first is Joy the Baker's browned butter blueberry muffins.

I was at the farmers market Saturday morning and came across fresh blueberries and just knew it was blueberry muffin time.

Now since Joy is a fancypants baker, this recipe required browning butter. I was feeling very apprehensive about this, but browned the butter anyway and while I'm not sure how much it contributed to the deliciousness of the muffins, they were delicious, so I'm not changing anything.

beautiful blueberries
so much potential
Since I followed the recipe pretty exactly (minus 1% milk for the whole milk), I'll just link you to Joy.

and yum
My other great success (please say like Borat) was Gina's Coconut Chocolate Chip Crispies.

I just completely randomly had all the ingredients and it sounded fantastic, so I made it.

SO GLAD THAT I DID. this is going to be my go to make-in-ten snack from now on.

Gina's recipe is pretty flexible, so my variations were: sunflower seed butter as the nut butter, and white chocolate chips in addition to regular chocolate chips.

On Friday I made Bethenny's oatmeal raisin cookies, and they were just not great. I didn't feel like they had a ton of flavor, and I didn't really enjoy them.

I also made banana chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, which were good.

This was Tina's Recipe.

So baking baking all day. I can't complain.

Also, any suggestions on the blog title are VERY appreciated!

  1. I made a blueberry breakfast cake from Eat Live Run for the same reason - fresh blueberries at the market! Those muffins look great.
