Weekend List

What’s on your to-do list this weekend?

Mine includes some kitchen time…

I’ll be taking this out for a spin.

I’m not sure what I’m making yet.


I have so many recipes bookmarked, pinned, ideas emailed to myself, and notes scribbled on flour-stained scraps of paper lining my kitchen drawers that I don’t even know where to begin.

 I am thinking I’d like to use puff pastry.

It’s been calling out to me from the freezer: usemeinsomething, makesomethingwithme.

I’m thinking of making apple tortes with it.

Sliced apples tossed with cinnamon, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla for starters and a few more ingredients.

And then baking it all up.

I know that it will make my house will smell so good from the cinnamon and sugar, apples, and the smell of baking bread.

I may not even need to buy another overpriced but oh-so-delicious smelling Yankee candle.  I love these candles.

I just need to start cooking and let some sweet smells from baking projects waft through the air.

Ever since I made the Avocado, Cream Cheese, and Salsa-Stuffed Puff Pastries, I can’t stop thinking about what I’m going to puff with next.

Other items on my weekend list include errands to run, grocery shopping, laundry to catch up on, dust bunnies in the corners of the living room to remove, and dirty showers to clean.

I can hardly wait.

I need to gather some energy for all the fun I’ll be having.

Maybe from one of these Baked Cinnamon Bun Donuts with Vanilla Cream Cheese Glaze

They make your house smell fabulous, too.

If you don’t have a donut pan, you can make them as muffins.  They taste so close to Cinnabons from the mall that they’re a bit dangerous but that’s okay.  They’re good energy for all your weekend chores.

  1. I bet your kitchen smells wonderful! Baking with apples and cinnamon is a sure bet for an amazing dessert.

  2. I can’t wait to see what your going to make next! My weekend to do list was done, which was picking up dog food, going to Target and guess what I bought there? Peanut Butter Cheerios and Strawberry Cake Mix, I was thinking of you!! And of course my weekend visit to Trader Joe’s, where I spent way to much! So tomorrow I’ll be baking, maybe making some bread and who know what else? Have a great Sunday!
