Hello Dolly BarsI may not have had as much time as I used to for coming up with original recipes but I still haven’t lost my zest for baking! I may not spend all weekend in the kitchen anymore but I still love pinning recipes and reading cookbooks. It’s also great to know that I’m not alone (there were a few other blogs I read where they also have babies about the same age as mine). I hope that you find some great new blogs and books after reading about them here.

Oat & Coconut Bars

Oat & Coconut Bars

I’m back! I survived my first week back at work. It was a little hard to hand the little bear over to the day care on the first day. He gave me the saddest little ‘where are you going look’ but after a few days he was fine.

Vegan Coconut Pudding

Vegan Coconut Pudding
The day I went to Puddin’ NYC Alex wasn’t feeling that great and decided to stay at home. My friend ordered their vegan pudding and let me have a taste. It was flavorful, creamy and not overly sweet. It made me immediately think of Alex because he loves dessert but not tooth achingly sweet desserts. It’s also not often that he can have anything when I drag him along to bakeries. When I called and asked him if he wanted me to bring him some home he said no. He must have really felt unwell to turn down dessert.

Salted Caramel Macaroons

Salted Caramel Macaroons

This is the second recipe that I made from The Macaroon Bible. I made this right after we moved into our new house. I had my Kitchenaid and one baking sheet and that’s about it. I had to wait about two months for the rest of our stuff to arrive by boat. I hate getting used to a new oven. Our oven in London was a sleek giant German one (massive compared to the average British one). The oven in the new house is a regular electric GE one.

Pumpkin Spice Macaroons

Pumpkin Spice Macaroons

These macaroons are delicious but before I get to them I have to tell you that I’m so excited my sister and I are going to watch a taping of Maury Povich next week! I’m a huge lover of trashy TV. Talk shows, stupid girly shows, weight loss shows, I love them all. I’ve never gotten into The Real Housewives Franchise but I have always been a fan of Maury. Back when I was in college Maury wasn’t on in the UK yet and my friend would record episodes on a VCR in the US (how old do I feel now!) and bring them back for us to watch in her dorm room. We’d watch episodes of Maury and Cheaters after Countdown.
