Baking to stay (semi) sane

Yesterday I needed to do something to take my mind off things. So I decided to bake. I used to be an incredible baker, but not so much anymore. I prefer to cook vs. bake. But I knew I had some mixes that I had bought to try so I did just that. An eclectic mix of peanut butter cookies (from Target Market Pantry mix, oh so good and easy), Mocha orange cupcakes (using Trader Joe's chocolate orange cake mix + espresso powder) and Beer, garlic, cheddar bread (concocted from a mix as well).


  1. mmm...yummy... I am starting to find lots of comfort being in the kitchen too. For me anything productive away from the laptop sometimes do, I suppose:)

    Happy baking!

  2. I too find comfort in baking and cooking.. so many reasons. Those cookies turned out perfect.. and pray tell, what's in those little silver cups! >-)

  3. Jen, they are Trader Joe's Chocolate Orange (cup)cakes that I added a little espresso powder to. They went straight in the freezer, I'm pulling them out this weekend, will let you know how they are.


Tell me what you think...
