Catching Up

First off, i'm loving the produce I get to pick from my garden everyday. I usually get a few tomatoes everyday and today I found a monster zucchini in there and a hidden cucumber, our first one! It's a little difficult finding stuff in the garden because we have a raspberry bush that is taking the area over.

With that out of the way, we had Landon's baby blessing the weekend before last and I meant to take pictures of everything. It was a lot of fun but with all the commotion I didn't get around to it. So instead of posting individual recipes i'm just going to post photos and recipe links.

The first thing I made were oreo brownies. No recipe needed really. I just made brownies and added about 12 chopped up oreos to the batter, then drizzled them with melted white chocolate after they cooked.

Next up are baby blueberry pies from Dinner With Julie. I didn't make the maple vanilla ice cream but I did make them in a mini muffin pan and added a lattice top to some of them with the extra dough I had. The ones with the top looked a lot cuter, like tiny little pies. I've also made mini cherry pies since as well.

Then there's vanilla bean cupcakes from My Baking Addiction. If you're into the classic vanilla on vanilla, this recipe is for you. I also made these ones mini. With several different dessert selections it's nice to have mini versions so you can try more things.

Last weekend we had a church dinner so I took a Reese's peanut butter cup cake. I've been wanting to make it for a while but needed the occassion. I don't get to make cakes often enough.. I was thinking this cake would be a lot bigger than it was and was slightly dissappointed that it wasn't. I was only thinking that because on the site I got the recipe from the cake looked huge! But they must have doubled it for theirs or something.. Anyway it was still really good! Can't go wrong with chocolate and pb, right?

Recipe for the cake and frosting can be found on Annie's Eats.

These recipes really deserve their own post seeing as how wonderful they all are, but I think i'm pretty caught up now.
