Here in Minnesota there is a timeless tradition of going to the “cabin.” During the summer everyone heads out of the city on the weekend to fish, and during the winter they still fish, but on frozen lakes. I am not originally from around here and have not quite embraced this weekend exodus, but I have a friend who is and she lures me to her cabin, not with the prospect of fishing, but with her banana bread.Read More
Chilly fall weather calls for cozy spices and pumpkin treats! This pumpkin bread recipe is packed with both, and is especially tasty when you roast your own pumpkins. It’s an easy way to elevate the flavor, but just be sure to get smaller pie or sugar pumpkin varieties, and not the big jack-o-lantern type that is common this time of year. You can also use canned pumpkin, but I highly recommend roasting your own!Read More
Close to Thanksgiving, there are pumpkins in everyone’s shopping cart, generally in a can. If you want a real treat, that will allow you to skip the canned aisle in the grocery store, try roasting pumpkins at home. You’ll be shocked at how easy it is.Read More
These are the blueberry scones I make on season 3 episode 7 of Zoë Bakes on Magnolia Network! In this episode I prepare to go to my friend’s cabin and since wild blueberries are in season, I make blueberry bars with lattice and lemon thyme shortbread crust, along with these blueberry scones to snack on when we hit the road.
You can watch Zoë Bakes on (HBO) Max, discovery+, and the Magnolia | Time Well Spent app.Read More
This is a combination of two of my favorites, star bread and an everything bagel with cream cheese. One of the great things about a star bread is that you can play with the flavor by baking them with sweet or savory fillings. I was craving an everything bagel, which is topped with a combination of poppy seeds, sesame seeds, onions, garlic, and salt. It is everything I love on a bagel, hence the name! I had a bucket of challah dough in the fridge, a block of cream cheese, and the bagel topping mix. Why not layer them all together and create a fun version of the classic breakfast? Not only is it fun to make (get the kids involved in the shaping) and beautiful, but it’s DELICIOUS.Read More
