Finding Beauty through Baking ~by Susan Baxter-Peace

Back in the Baking Saddle March 24, 2014

It feels like only a few weeks since I last posted something, but apparently it has been about four months! Time flies when you’re nursing a baby and chasing a toddler! It’s not that I haven’t had time to bake, I’ve actually done quite a bit over the last few months. It’s finding (or making, more likely) the time to write the posts and upload the pictures. Well, I’m going to do my best to get back into the swing of things.

Let me fill you in on some of the baking adventures I’ve had since my last post.

  • gingerbread housesMaking gingerbread houses for a church fundraiser during the Christmas holidays.
  • Making gingerbread houses for a fun family decorating time.
  • Making old fashioned brown sugar fudge for the first time.
  • Trying to make flavoured brown sugar fudge with molasses and spices.
  • Making no-knead sundried tomato and asiago cheese bread (super yum!)
  • Making rye bread, which totally flopped, but was surprisingly good to eat anyway.

There are several other exciting things I made that I will post about soon. Until then, it’s good to be here again, and I hope I can get my act together before too many weeks pass us by!

The Bun is almost fully baked September 23, 2013

To my faithful followers, and anyone else who pops by for a read,

mat leave (2) I wanted to let you know that I will not be baking and posting as often for the next little while. My husband and I are expecting our second child very soon, and I’m not going to try and be a superhero by still posting something every week. I will continue to post when I can, but it will not be as regular as once a week for a little while. My goal is to get back to once a week eventually, so please hang in there. I appreciate your support, ‘likes’ and comments, and look forward to when I can post more regularly again. Until then, our little guy thanks you for your patience and understanding while I give him the best start that I can!

My apologies to my faithful followers. I was hit by a bug this past week, and didn’t have a chance to do up a post. Should be back next week with gusto!

Short and Sweet March 1, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — sweetleafsusie @ 4:14 pm

At 5’1″ with a joy for baking, I can think of no better way to start my blog: short and sweet. Baking is a creative experience, whether you’re making a batch of chocolate chip cookies, or designing a cake that will uniquely represent a person. I enjoy both of these, and in the last few years I have tried to broaden my creative horizons. I hope to use this blog to showcase my creations and reflect on my experiences.
