Boo! There’s a New Theme for October

Farmers’ Market month was full of fun, fresh recipes. I've been dying to know what's coming next! Well, the suspense is over at last. I just found out what this month's theme is! 

Baking Challenge: Sugar and Cinnamon Apple Muffins

This Sugar and Cinnamon Apple Muffins recipe makes me feel nostalgic for that “back to school” excitement I used to feel as a child (An apple for teacher!). I'm sure my teacher would have loved one of these on her desk! 

Celebrate National Pancake Day with 3 Fun Ideas

Happy National Pancake Day Everyone. Check out these great pancake ideas I just read in the C&H® Sugar email. I can't wait to try leaf-shaped pancakes! 

Baking Challenge: Agave Almond Pear Tart

This Agave Almond Pear Tart recipe had me excited because it was actually something I would totally order off a dessert menu in a nice restaurant. There’s something impressive about saying, “would you like to try my homemade agave almond pear tart?”. I have to say, this is my new favorite recipe! 

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? 

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.
