Things I Want To Put In My Face

What a week.  What a week.  Financial crisis. Bail out.  Katie Couric interviews.  Vice Presidential debates.  So much has gone on this week I literally feel exhausted by all of the news.  I do know one thing.  I need the phrase “Joe Six Pack” out of my life forever.  Seriously.  Out.

I thought I’d treat you all to some blog love.  Why?  Because it’s free, and free is a long long way from 700 billion.

Smoky Barbecue Sauce-  I know it’s not a dessert and I also know that summer is over but I could eat barbecue sauce by the spoonful.  Really?  Ok… maybe not.  But I love the idea of homemade barbecue sauce, especially if I get to use those darling flippy top jars.  Check out Cooking for Seven to figure out what they heck I’m talking about.

Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread-   Yes!  The perfect introduction into Fall.  I’m also thinking hard about pumpkin and chocolate combinations.  It’s not too early, right?

Double Chocolate Layer Cake-  Oh Amanda, you know just how to speak to my heart.  Yes.  My answer is Yes!  I’ll marry you.  Wait…. did you ask?

Sweet Cherry Pie-  Are there still cherries?  Is it not too late?  Maybe there’s something magical in Florida where Mike of Mike’s Table whipped up this pie.   Warm cherry pie with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream- I could die a happy happy girl.

Banana Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies-  Abby, what have you done?  Would these be a proper breakfast food, because I’m seriously considering these with a glass of milky coffee in the morning.  Please and thank you.

  1. I just discovered your website! I love to bake, but I am baking impaired! Your recipies look so wonder and hopefully this impaired wanna be baker can make your recipies turn out half as good as your pictures look! :)

  2. Thanks for the mention! And on the note of “joe sixpack,” I’ll add the phrase “main street” to the never-to-be-spoken again list. And those whoopie pies look awesome

  3. one thing i love about visiting sites from other countries is all the different stuff we have. whoopie pies? tee hee, that really tickles my funny bone! and I love BBQ sauce (or brown sauce as i’d probably call it), but have never thought about making my own. sounds like a plan to me, because BBQ weather is on the way. infact am waiting for the guests to turn up for today’s BBQ lunch. But, please enlighten me – what the freak is liquid smoke?????? I’d also be interested to know what australian culinary classics other people find strange.
