I figured it was about time I did a post on some of my baking exploits....nothing extraordinary, and I definitely need to take more pictures of what I make because I don't have a lot of pictures and it's simply because I don't think of it till after it's all gone! Then I'm like, why didn't I take a picture of that! Oh well, I can't do everything right and it takes time to remember to take pictures of everything you bake......ok, well for me it does for any of you out there that 'always' remember to take a picture.....I'm jealous, but I will get better! :)Southwest Chocolate Stack-Ups - These were very yummy and very easy to put together if you made everything up before hand. They also look pretty impressive for something so easy to make!
My first attempt at making Coconut Meringue Pie. It needed more meringue........
But it tasted amazing!
Second attempt turned out a lot better and it was still delicious!
Cherry Pie - It turned out pretty good. I was wanting to make a cherry pie that didn't just consist of "cherry pie filling out of a can". So, this was a nice change and it wasn't too sweet like a lot of cherry pies.
Oreo Truffles - So chocolaty and good!
Cake Truffles - These were absolutely amazing and I'm not kidding! Everyone who had one loved them and they are actually really pretty easy to make, so if you're wanting to make something that looks and takes amazing then you should definitely try these out!
Cookie Dough Truffles - These were good and they would probably be better if you didn't serve them with the Cake ones! :)
Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting - These are a very yummy treat and the cream cheese frosting makes them amazing. My husband and his dad like the frosting so much they like me to double it! :)
Homemade Cinnamon Bread (Pioneer Woman's recipe) - I've made this twice now and I love it! I did switch to using whole wheat flour to make it a little healthier and it is so good toasted and buttered!
Bethany's 1st Birthday Cupcakes - Nothing that extraordinary, but adding the mini m&m's was a plus and the girls loved them!
Abigail's 2nd Birthday Bear Cake - This was so fun to make and he turned out sooo cute! Hillary was amazing and helped me decorate him since she is extremely good at that and we had a lot of fun doing it. Kayla was also very helpful in holding him (before we iced him) while I did a little heart surgery due to some problems while baking him! :) It was definitely a fun time! :D

Hopefully you enjoyed looking at all my baking attempts....I will try to keep it up as I try new things out!

I really love baking and hopefully I'll have more time as the girls get older, but for now it's fun to do stuff every now and then! I'll send you the recipes on fb. You should really do a post of all the things you bake and cook because I'm constantly getting hungry hearing about all that good stuff and I'd love to see some pics! :)
