Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 52
Hello and Happy Saturday!
Let’s start this weekend on a good note by trying out these simple recipes and finding the ones that make your heart the happiest and your stomach the fullest.
It’s no surprise to some of you, but I have already started experimenting with creating mouthwatering desserts in my workshop.
So far, so good, according to my family, who are my taste testers, but in the end, they will eat almost anything made with flour and sugar!
These Valentine’s Day desserts are here for you to make that special Monday the best day of the week. Instead of buying a box of chocolates, bake some brownies chocolate cake or create one of those breakable chocolate hearts.
The possibilities are endless!
A Personal Note from Janine
My favorite thing to do is have The Great British Baking Show on while I bake in the kitchen.
If I made it on the show, I wouldn’t survive the first round. But I love to imagine myself tackling the baking challenges.
My recent baking included my mother-in-law’s brownie recipe. And I ended up making the brownies three times. Don’t they say, third times a charm? With each failure, I learn new baking techniques, like you can’t cheat using butter that’s not quite at room temperature.
Well, the new recipe is finally on the blog, and I hope you have a chance to check out these yummy brownies!
This weekend my husband and I are starting my monthly Cake ChallWeek’s
I’m excited about Valentine’s monthly project. I want to challenge myself and you to bake some cool cakes. I hope it will inspire you to bake in the kitchen and then if you can send me your cake photos.
And I plan to share your photos on my blog and in my newsletters.
Cheers to creating some fantastic desserts! Here’s to building a fun baking community.
Off to make a Chantilly cake with my husband.
