Cinnamon Star Bread #bakealong

Cinnamon Star Bread #bakealong

One of my goals for this autumn was to do two of the King Arthur Flour bakealongs. Each month they post a recipe and invite folks to bake the recipe and then post a picture on social media. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, and I finally got in the kitchen and did it! The recipe for November was Cinnamon Star Bread, and it looked WAY too complicated! My mom taught me that I can cook anything…

Savannah Bananas – The Nachos

TBB Asks – August 2017

Today I’m having fun with The Blended Blog! Pool, lake, or ocean? Lake for kayaking.  Ocean for listening to the waves and just resting.  Pool on occasion for laying out and swimming. Camping, cottage, or hotel? Tent camping when it’s cool enough.  Cottage in the mountains in the fall.  Nice hotel anytime.

I know I say it every month, but I LOVE this link-up!  It’s fun to see how everyone interprets each month’s prompts and what they’re up to!  Here’s what I’m CURRENTLY…   snacking (on): Dark Salted Brown Butter Chocolate.  I discovered this chocolate bar at Publix yesterday, and it jumped into my cart all by itself.  I don’t usually eat chocolate, but this bar apparently thought I’d like it.  It’s right.
