Bread Machine Love: Peanut Butter Cookies

So the topic of desserts came up a while back and the boy did me the grave injustice of not remembering all the different cookies I had made over the course of our time together. Given, my baking output has slacked a bit recently due to calorie-watching, warm weather, and less spare time, but the fact remains — I bake a mean batch of cookies. And lots of them. So it only seems right that I make sure this blog reflects that as well. Today, another classic: the peanut butter cookie. I typically use a tweaked version of this Allrecipes …

Bread Machine Love: Snickerdoodles

This was posted in my main blog back in 2001, and I’ve been making them pretty much the same since back then. Since I’ve moved around a bit since 2001, however, I no longer have access to my mom’s industrial stand mixer. However, I found that my trusty bread machine did the same job just fine!

He tried a bit of it and didn’t mind it, which is at least a better reaction than what I get when I even suggest banana bread. Still not what I was hoping for, though. All the same, I found the applesauce bread …

Bread Machine Love: Banana Quickbread Edition

I have a slight obsession with bread machines. My parents got our first one in the early 90’s, when I was in junior high. I remember trying out many experimental concoctions (with varying degrees of success) using that poor machine, and am amazed at how long it survived despite the abuse I put it through. Noting how attached I’d gotten to it, my parents gave it over to my ownership when I moved away to university. It went with me through two schools, countless LA apartments, and finally ended up here in our little home. That trusty old machine only recently met its end …
