I generally like the end of August. The kids have started school and the weather is still warm for a few more weeks.
However, this being the last school year for my oldest son has me feeling a little melancholy, and the unseasonal grey and rainy weather hasn’t helped my mood at all. It’s fortunate I have baking to bring me out of my funk.
This month, my personal favorite recipe was the Peanut Butter Crispy Marshmallow Brownies. I can’t get enough of them. It has given me ideas for more decadently topped brownies. More on that next month, I hope.
A close second was the spiced zucchini muffins. I told Robb, who has an irrational fear of green vegetables, that you can’t even taste the zucchini in zucchini bread, and he replied, “Then why is it in there?” I told him it was a filler, and it gives a nice texture, and he said, “Nope. You can taste it.” He wouldn’t even try the zucchini muffins without a big glass of milk nearby, but I made a believer of him. He took one bite, said, “That’s really good!” (as if there were any other option, hehe) and promptly finished the rest of the muffin without touching the milk.
It was the perfect end to this awesome month.
It was fun having Em guest post again this month. Her Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookies were a big hit. Wait until you see what she has in store for next month!
You know how much we love popcorn here, right? I shared a recipe for Honey Butter Popcorn on My Cooking Spot this month. Honey butter is so delicious, and works great on popcorn.
Coming up in September… turning 40, the beginning of pumpkin season, and chocolate, lovely chocolate!!
