Baking Frenzy for Father's Day

I am no master baker, 
not even a mediocre baker ;)

Making muffins (box mix) for breakfast 

I don't know that I have ever seen a "twin" egg !
There were two yolks in the large egg on the right.
The egg on the left is a regular large egg from the 
same dozen. 

I then spent the rest of the morning baking three desserts 
(and making a big ol' mess !) for the dads:

Brownies (box mix) with walnuts and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
I wanted to have the kids sprinkle powdered sugar over 
die cut letters D A D since the brownies were for their dad, 
but they wanted no part of it. I could have done it myself...

Fresh peach pie (Betty Crocker recipe) my brother in law requested.
That was supposed to be a tie on his pie,
but I don't know what I was doing - 
it looks like a fish! 
First time I've made a basic peach pie and it was pretty good! 

My dads slightly burned fresh apple pie
(Betty Crocker recipe).
I felt so bad for burning it and had no time to 
go to the store to get more apples, make another.
Despite it being burned , it tasted great and the apples
didn't get too mushy like they do sometimes !
I cut D A D into the top of it.
It matched the card I made him =) 

I did make one thing healthy to take to the family dinner: a really large salad with home made dressing,
a family favorite. Here is the recipe; it is a Roman type dressing.

It went well with the beautiful gargantuan sized home made lasagna and cheesy garlic bread my sister made. I think the dads enjoyed their meal and desserts =)

Thanks for looking !

  1. YUMMY! My parents have raised chickens for as long as I can remember and we do get doubles occasionally. I've never seen them in store bought eggs though!


THANK YOU for taking the time to leave your comments. I hope I've inspired you to get a bit crafty today ;)
