Hello everyone! I'm back for another Fantastic Bake Along post! I've really been missing blogging over the past month, but I have been so busy with work that when I have had down time, the last thing I wanted to do was turn on my computer and write. I hope things slow down a bit soon...at least to the point that I'm not working after hours, and on weekends to stay caught up. But that's enough of that, on to the real purpose for this post!
I am happy to finally get posting my entry to the Fantastic Bake Along - Rosemary Muffins, hosted by Tracy at It's a T-Sweets Day. This month's recipe was chosen by Brenna at Crochet539 and the full recipe can be found at Taste of Home. When I first saw the photos of this week's bake along recipe, I was excited to make some muffins. My excitement only grew once I realized the muffins were savoury, and contained two of my favourite ingredients...black olives, and goat cheese. Yum!
It feels like it's been forever since I did a crafty post...I don't even remember what the last one was! One reason of course was my computer issues, and the other was a lack of crafting time. I finally got back into some crafting in April, but it was slow going. Back at the beginning of the month I decided to join the Spring Stitch Along hosted by The Crochet Crowd and sponsored by Joann Fabrics and Crafts. The deadline for entering into their contest is today, and while I finished my blanket a week ago, I decided not to enter the contest because I was too lazy to block my afghan when it was finished.
I have a confession to make. I have never made candy (unless you count something dipped in melted chocolate) because the process always seemed so intimidating to me. So when I saw this month's Fantastic Bake Along, I was excited to finally give it a go. The Fantastic Bake Along is hosted by Tracy at It's a T-Sweets Day!, and the recipe for this month was supplied by AJ at A Petite Slice of Life and can be found here on Tracy's blog.
I was late getting my pie filling for this week's Bake Along, I only picked it up this morning and didn't get making my tarts until late this afternoon. In fact, I just finished baking them about an hour ago! So instead of posting two separate, almost simultaneous posts, one for my Tea Advent Calendar and the other for the Fantastic Bake Along, I thought I would do one double duty post.
