My Dorie Days

After reading so much about Dorie Greenspan’s book Baking: From My Home to Yours, I decided to pick it up from the library to try the recipes out before shelling out the cash for my own book. Here’s everything that I made in the 3 weeks or so I had the book. Needless to say, I ordered my own copy. =)

Pecan Honey Sticky Buns (pg. 51)

Absolutely fantastic. 4.5 stars out of 5.

Lemon Poppyseed Muffins (pg. 10)

4.5 stars out of 5.

Fresh Mango Bread (pg. 45)

I used craisins instead of raisins, resulting in a beautiful mango cranberry bread.

4 stars out of 5.

Oatmeal Breakfast Bread (pg. 44)

At the last minute, I realized I didn’t have any applesauce. I used mashed banana instead, which substituted perfectly. And again, I used craisins instead of raisins.

4 stars out of 5.

Honey-Nut Brownies (pg. 102)

I chose to use almonds as my nut.

Not enough of a chocolaty taste. 2.5 stars out of 5.

Great Grains Muffins

I finally used the last of my craisins in this recipe. Can you tell I got them on sale?

3.5 stars out of 5.

  2. Isn’t it a great book? I love it, and bake from it regularly. I just made the Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipster cookies, which are a combo of oatmeal, peanut butter, and chocolate chip cookies all rolled into one.
