Weekly Mix

Hello, my baking friends! Here we are again at the end of another week. Despite the rain falling outside, I am still happy to see Friday. Let’s get rolling, shall we?

It’s been an interesting week in the BoB kitchen. I had a couple of baking failures, which are always hard to take. There’s been good stuff, too. Stuff like my current favorite cookie. Plus, some things I’ll be sharing with you soon.

My I-wish-I’d-made-that sweet this week comes to us from Valerie at Une Gamine Dans la Cuisine. Her Butterscotch Chocolate Sandwich Cookies look amazing. I don’t make them that often, but I’m a sucker for sandwich cookies.

These Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars aren’t exactly from the Way Back Machine. I just shared them with you last month. But, they’ve been seeing a lot of love this past week from the social world. Remember these? They’re super easy and start with a cake mix. And that filling is so simple yet so good!

Speaking of peanut butter and chocolate, I created a new Pinterest board dedicated to that favorite flavor combo. A while back I made a collection of my favorite peanut butter and chocolate recipes, but I’ve made so many in the past 6+ years, that I thought a dedicated Pinterest board was in order. If you’d like to follow my Pinterest boards, click here.

One of my favorite things about these Friday posts is sharing non-food photos with you. I live in perhaps the most photogenic city on Earth, and I love photographing it. If you do the Tumblr thing, you can find my photos on my Tumblr. I recently caved to Instagram, so look for me there, too. I’m bakeorbreak.

That’s it for this week. Stay tuned next week on BoB for some great recipes and… a giveaway!

  1. I love that picture!!! My husband and I are thinking of moving to DUMBO – I was wondering if you’d mind sharing some of your favorite things about living there. And also some of your least favorite. I’d appreciate any and all insider info you’d like to share.

  2. Hi, Christine! That photo was taken at Smorgasburg, which is one of my favorite things so far. We’ve only been living in DUMBO for about a month, although Quinn has worked here for the last 2 years. It’s really a great neighborhood. It hasn’t yet been invaded by chain stores and restaurants, which is nice. Very walkable, too. The park is gorgeous and has a fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline. We are much closer to subway access, too, than when we lived in Manhattan. It’s just quieter and… cozier, if that makes sense. So far, I haven’t found a downside. If you want any more info, feel free to email me – bakeorbreak at gmail dot com.

  3. I really shouldn’t visit your blog when I am on a fast day. #mistake

  4. Your recipes are to die for. Especially those cookies, they will me bloat me out. But, I don’t care. Foods are meant to be cherished.
