Six Things I Must Bake

My intention was to write up something working out, maybe the must-haves that can make a workout exciting.   What really happened:  I worked out, came home, started watching the presidential debate and started thinking about food.  Totally natural for stress eaters, right?  I joke.  The debate didn't make me think about food, it was the blustery clouds rolling across the sky, the fresh smell after the rainstorm, the colorful leaves blowing around.  For me, and probably for most across the nation; cool weather = turn on the oven.

I want to bake.

I was in Rochester for a wedding last week, where I found myself eating a lot of biscuits and corn bread (hence my reason for hitting the gym).  While baking is completely unrelated to records, unless you listen to records when baking, this list of six inspired me to collect six recipes I've come across and have categorized as things I must bake.

These recipes come from my favorite food blog, Smitten Kitchen.   Deb is a charming writer, a great photographer and incredibly creative in the kitchen.  Her first book is about to hit the shelves and while you can search the web for recipes, nothing beats a solid book on your counter top.  Every time I use one of her recipes, I'm the hit at the potluck.  Seriously, you can't lose.
Spiced Applesauce Cake, Gingersnaps, Whole Wheat Apple Muffins, Sweet Potato Biscuits, Homemade Wheat Thins, Apple and Cheddar Scones

I hope to successfully bake these items over the season, especially the apple cheddar scones.   Are you too planning on baking this season?  If so, what's top of the list?

I want to eat. Please invite me over once the Apple and Cheddar scones have become a consumable reality.
