Empty The Cupboards

Well my loyal friends, the friends who have subscribed to my blog despite me only putting out posts every couple years, big new update- we bought a townhouse. Super excited, and the kitchen has a hood and we can have a grill, craziness. But this came with a problem for ethos of hating waste, and not wanting to pack up every little thing in the kitchen.

So I have been baking like mad.

I have made THESE giant sixlet cookies (note these aren’t the prettiest cookies, but very tasty).
I have made strawberry cupcakes from a store bought mix, with THIS frosting.
I have made a mix from Monticello (the place, you know, Jefferson’s home) of lavender, lemon scones.
I have made Paul Hollywood’s ciabatta. (Conversions and all)
I made THESE coconut, pecan cookies.
I attempted hot dog and hamburger buns, but I am not linking as I am not sure I love that recipe. I will try out a new one.
I made waffles from the mini-waffle maker recipe book.
THESE delicious garlic knots (although I might add more garlic next time).
And I made flatbread from HERE.

You know what this has taught me?
The same thing I have known for years, baking isn’t hard, it’s about pulling up the recipe and making the thing, seeing how it goes, making it a little better the next time.  Most of these recipes took less than 2 hours, some were super quick like 30 minutes quick, I made them along with dinner- oh yeah, I made dinner too, #emptythecupboards is for all my cupboards.  So, if a girl with a full time job, gym schedule and dog to walk can make it work.  Take the chance, bake the things. Your co-workers will eat all the leftovers.
