I made croissants for the first time. It really IS a lot of work but oh so worth it! My arms hurt after rolling out the dough. I added a little bit of sourdough to them too…


They turn out beautifully brown and flaky.


We celebrated John’s birthday with homemade cupcakes and an open house party. Expecting around 40 people, I ended up baking 100 cupcakes with 5 different flavors—chocolate with mocha frosting, yellow with cherry frosting, chocolate with peanut butter frosting, red velvet with cream cheese frosting, and dark chocolate with vanilla frosting. Yeah. They were good.
