Baking Fiend

Last week I was off on thursday and friday for the Jewish holiday, Sukkot. I had monday and tuesday of this week off due to conferences and my school did not need me to come in for those to work. So what did I do with my time off??? Aside from hanging with my family and getting to do things with them that I don't normally get to do, I baked! I love baking versus cooking. I love sugar!

Thursday Night
Special K Bars!

Saturday Night
Lemon bread! See the yummy glaze on top!

Sunday and Monday yes both nights, I baked
Chocolate chip cookies! Everyone's Fav

I have never baked the lemon bread before and I gotta say that recipe was wonderful! I loved it. It was very tasty especially with a real lemon versus the lemon juice. And the glaze was awesome! I might have to remember that for other recipes where a glaze would be lovely!

Special K bars are my old favorite. I like making them without the butterscotch chips! So much better in my opinion.

And when asking the kids their favorite cookie, they of course say chocolate chip! my hubby likes them a little crispier, I like them a little more cakey and the kids love the dough.

I hope I haven't gained ten pounds! It's been soooooo long since I've baked, I am not going to worry about it. I'll enjoy it. Then when I'm working again, I'll stick to the routine of not baking.
