Baked Goods: The Kitchen Never Closes

This Summer the kitchen has been in full operation twenty-four hours a day. Most days I feel like a short-order cook with all of the different dishes that I’ve got to get made.

I’ve been baking so many breads, cookies, cakes, and pies. I’ve been trying out a few new recipes too.

Dinner Rolls are a staple around our house. I think I make these at least four times a week.

I love baking fresh bread. It makes the best grilled cheese sandwiches.

I made a batch of snacking bread for Thade. That kiddo could eat these for breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, dessert, after dinner snack, and whenever I say it is time to go to sleep and get out of the kitchen, but he thinks it is time for another snack.

I decided it was time to make a Turkey, so that called for a Pumpkin Pie, and a double batch of Dinner Rolls.

I’ve been making icing from scratch, and I found a fantastic recipe for Vanilla Buttercream. It tastes just like wedding cake icing. The kids loved it too.

We’ve had so many tomatoes growing in our little garden, I wanted to try something new with them. I made a Tomato Pie, and it was amazing. Dylan and I practically ate the entire dish all by ourselves.

With school around the corner I hope to have a little more time to bake ahead cookies, snacks, breads, pizza rolls, and other homemade treats. I would love a break from the kitchen for a little bit, but I don’t think that is going to happen any time too soon.
