5 Farmers' Market Tips

Shopping at a farmers' market is a little different than shopping at a grocery store. Check out these tips to guarantee you get what you're looking for! 

Baking Challenge: Carrot Cake Cookies

I’ve made cookies before. I’ve made carrot cake before. How hard could it be to make Carrot Cake Cookies? Feeling confident, I collected my farm fresh carrots and got ready to take on this challenge! 

Baking Tip: Draining Vegetables for Pies

Avoid soggy pie crusts with this tip for veggie pies! 

Baking Challenge: Zucchini Bread

I was a little skeptical going into this Zucchini Bread challenge because I couldn’t help but worry about taking a savory (GREEN!) fruit and turning it into any type of sweet baked good without possibly messing it up. Find out how I did with my first ever bread baking experience! 

A Trip to a Farmer’s Market

September wouldn't be farmers' market month on the blog without, well, a trip to the farmers market, right? 

Baking Challenge: Peach Cobbler

This recipe challenge was bound to be kind of a tough one because it marked my big return to traditional baking. When I saw that it was Peach Cobbler, I felt a little encouraged. Cobblers are supposed to look a little messy, right? 

Happy Labor Day

Why not bake something on your day off? :)

Interview: Kristine de la Cruz

Kristina de la Cruz co-owns the adorable Crème Caramel LA Custard Dessert Sweet shop in Sherman Oaks, and writes for the shop’s beautiful blog. She is a great example of how baking can allow you to stay connected to your roots, create your own future, and share both with your community! 

Recipe Challenge: Peach Pistachio Ice Cream

Finally, the recipe challenge I've been waiting for all month: ice cream! The popsicles were cute, the granita was tasty, the sorbet was refreshing, but let's face it, nothing beats wholesome, authentic, homemade ice cream. And not just any ice cream, Peach Pistachio Ice Cream! 

The Challenge

Want to bake from scratch, but don’t know where to begin? You’re not alone! Bake along with C&H® Sugar’s Confectionista Project as we challenge a newbie baker to try a different recipe each week and blog about her experience. Say goodbye to #bakingdisasters and hello #bakingfun.
