I've been back in the kitchen again and really enjoying baking something new each weekend. I've been organizing a new recipe box/organizer which always helps, and gathering some heirloom recipes from my mom and grandmother. After a long, self imposed ban on buying new cookbooks, I recently picked up a few and this one was an immediate favorite...
The New England Farm Girl by Jessica Robinson is totally my style. I love the East coast vibe and enjoy recipes that are comforting and often include pumpkin, berries or maple syrup. I also feel like I have everything in my pantry to make almost all of the recipes which eliminates too much planning.
First we had the raspberry oat bars, now dubbed "Camden bars" due to where the recipe came from in the book and Camden loved them.
This weekend we had the blueberry coffee cake.
This one was a WOW. Within 24 hours, three quarters of the pan is empty (and it makes a large 9x12 pan size).
There are plenty more recipes within that I have marked with sticky notes. A lot of them are bars, muffins and sweet type treats with a few dinners and soups in the mix.
