Kitchen Bonding

My kitchen and I have been spending a lot of time together lately. Particularly this past weekend. Saturday through Monday were packed with so many fun events that involved food...and of course, I can't help but make a contribution to ANYTHING involving food.

So here's a little recap of what my kitchen and I have whipped up since Saturday evening:

Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze. Made these for hospitality at church on Sunday morning...

...which were accompanied by these Blueberry Muffins.

And a girl's gotta eat dinner while she bakes. So this Goulash was our Saturday night dinner.

Sunday night we celebrated my Grandma's birthday. She requested this awesome Carrot Cake.

...which was also accompanied by Chocolate Sheet Cake. Who says you can't have two cakes for your birthday?

And of course, me being me, baking two whole cakes for my Grandma's birthday wasn't enough. I felt compelled to make and appetizer too. And what better appetizer to make than these extremely addiciting Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos.

Last night we had a yummy Pre-Thanksgiving feast with our church kingdom group. Yet again, do I offer to bring just one thing? Of course not!

Broccoli Casserole (which is a family recipe and my favorite Thanksgiving dish that my mom makes) was the side item of my choosing...

...along with Brown Sugar Cookies....

Every single thing turned out absolutely delicious and I absolutely recommend them all.

With all that said, I now need to go spend some quality bonding time with the gym.
