Farm Baking

The return of cold wintry weather

gave me the opportunity to direct my attention to the kitchen.  
Baking took the place of gardening this past week.

I tried a new recipe from my favorite cookie book...
Spritz butter cookies with a dark chocolate filling.
So, so good!
I think they would be perfect for a tea party or shower.
They are so easy and quick, too!

Any time I come across "bee" items for the kitchen,
I cannot resist.
I found a pan to make this yummy almond cake...

Each honeycomb section is the perfect portion size.

The recipe is a keeper, too!

Whole grain dough, rising....


yielded three loaves of delicious bread.

This weekend three of our kids came to cook Saturday dinner.
I only wish I had taken pictures....
we had the yummiest pretzel rolls for our 
local, pasture raised beef and goat cheese burgers.

I love that bee cake pan.

I just discovered your blog and will be going through your older posts. We like similar things! Our son is getting some bees in April. We get them at our property, because he lives in town. I'm getting excited about them. Wish us luck!

We have a Kuwaiti neighbor who has honeybees. Your cookies and homebaked bread look and sound delicious. I can't believe you made those horse shortbreads. Cute! Shortbread is my favorite! Hope all is well in your corner of the world. Best wishes, Tammy

Hello Bev!
Oh yum...these treats look so good. It's nearly my bed time and I'm having trouble keeping myself from going to the fridge after reading this blog post! I have a question for you...do you have the recipe for this bread somewhere on your blog? It's too hot to bake bread now but if I don't ask now I'll forget when the weather cools. I have a mind like a sieve. Anyway...have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
