My Baking Issue

0 cover 


13 pumpkin pie bars  

Well it has taken me a year and half (I say with a red, embarrassed face), but I finally have a second issue of my petite-magazine. It is a baking issue. It all came about because my girls were saying, there is all this wonderful information on your blog but we do not have a book. Since baking seems to be one of their favorite activities, I decided to do a baking issue. It is a compilation of recipes from the blog, but not all of them. I did not want the issue to be too big, but it does have some of our favorites. I also included any of the post were I talk about the recipe. So you have the information, as well as the recipe. I did add four new recipe that are not on the blog. An Over-night Blueberry Breakfast Cake, Sweet Potato Biscuits, Cider Cake and Scottish Oat Tails. There is a total of 21 recipes and the issue is 35 pages. I did a PDF file, you can download and also an actual soft-covered book. Which I have ordered and am really happy how it turned out.

I wanted to say something about the price of the book, after a conversation with a friend. The book is much more expensive then the PDF but this is not my cost, but the cost of actually printing. Believe me, I tried to do this book as cheaply as I can. I hope you enjoy this baking issue and it inspires you to bake more. I hope I have fixed all the grammar problems. Grammar is not my strength, as you know reading this blog. I had a few friends help me and look it over. Thank you Mom, Paula and Angie for all your help. But if I missed something, please forgive me. There is a preview of the petite-magazine at my store. I would love feed-back xoxox

I'm partial to "real books" myself.

Clarice, this is so NICE! So nice!
What a great "cuddle" you have given us to cozy up with this winter season. :)

Thank you!


DO you keep copies of your book ...the printed one at your home ( or a neutral place)....just wondering IF it would be possible to just buy one in person...I have some birthday $$$$ left....
