What Did You Bake This Month….a challenge

I thought I’d shake things up a little and offer you all a challenge. The holidays are over, the winter doldrums are about to descend. Why not join me in a little cooking/baking adventure?

During the month of January, I’d like you to think of a recipe using a certain ingredient that will be mentioned a few sentences from here. It can be one of your tried and true recipes, it can be a brand spanking new recipe that you make up, it can be a recipe that you have had sitting in your list of “I want to try that.” The only thing I ask is that you actually make it, write up a post about it and include a picture or two. In “What Did You Bake Today” on January 29, I’d like you to link up your recipe.

I will randomly pick one of the linker-uppers and will feature them the following week here and on my personal blog.

Now, for the mystery ingredient…..seeing it’s cold outside….and not much is really in season….it’s

(you can make a main dish, a dessert, a breakfast item, bread, or whatever!!)
I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

By the way, did you know it’s National Oatmeal Month?! good timing 🙂

Does anyone know what else Dave doesn’t like so we can plan our menus?


How funny that I’ve already scheduled one of my favorite oatmeal recipes here in the next couple weeks! Great minds think alike!

Thank the gods that there is such a thing as oatmeal scotches…

Otherwise, i was considering a cream of Brussels Sprouts oatmeal dish … with a side of two bottles of scotch…

Maybe a meatloaf also… OK, I am in
