February always seems to be baking month for me

Usually it's cold and blistery during February, so while we're usually stuck inside, I get busy baking (and warming up the house with the oven). Even though this February has been unseasonably warm, my body seems to sense that it is still February and so, I've been baking. I tried to go off of sugar for the month of February (barring Valentine's Day), but that was a joke considering my need to stir, swirl, knead, and melt. And now I know why people have bakeries. They enjoy baking so much they can't possibly eat everything they make. I have got to start giving things away or else when it does get cold we'll be so insulated with frosting and sugar, we won't need to turn on the oven to stay warm.

Ha! I too tried to go off of treats, not sugar though, for February. I did not make it. Not only did I just not make it, but I made donuts, cookies, cakes, etc. (all before Valentines' Day); but I figured it may be fun to celebrate Lent this year. Wish me luck. ;)

correction: observe Lent. Do you celebrate Lent? What do you think? I just think it is a cool concept.

Wow. Those look amazing. I think you should post how your made your foccacia bread. I made some recently that did not turn out nearly as airy as I hoped. I'm really getting into baking breads so I've decided to learn more about the science behind it so I can make amazing bread. I love your blog, so much fun to read!

Those look really yummy. It makes me wish I'd been baking more during February.

Those all look so delicious. I wish I was there to share in your baking delights. Maybe you can send the recipes?

That cake needs to make it to the agreeable recipe book somehow... or is it already there?
