Our Start to 2020 Summer – the New Normal

Summer 2020 is sure not a normal one, but despite it all, we are trying to enjoy this extra time together. We have been cooking/baking tons and spending lots of time playing in our yard, with the addition of a few small and hesitant trips. What does summer 2020 look like for you?

Simple and Amazing English Muffins!

These homemade English Muffins are so fluffy, golden, and amazing! This is not a sourdough English Muffin recipe however, but that is the reason they are so quick and easy to make. Scratch baking isn't as difficult as one might think, and I think these English Muffins are proof! Plus, did you know that English Muffins aren't baked, they are actually pan fried? That was a fun fact I learned making these too. Enjoy this English Muffin recipe!

Lemon Blueberry Loaf with Lemon Glaze

This lemon blueberry loaf is one I make every summer. These is nothing better than picking fresh blueberries and enjoying them in a home-baked bread! This loaf is particularly easy, and you can dress it up even more by selecting a special pan. This floral one is a Nordic Ware pan I found at Williams Sonoma, but they have tons of other fun ones available on Amazon too!

My Favorite Monkey Bread Recipe

Trying new recipes is the thing to do right now, apparently! But honestly, why not? For us non-essential workers, we are no longer commuting and have hours of extra at-home time right now, even if working a full day at home. So why not take that extra time and turn it into something delicious, like this Monkey Bread recipe? I know you guys have that Costco stock of bulk yeast and flour, haha! Have fun!
