A big thank you to Jen, for hosting me today on her fabulous blog!
Hello, my name is Jenny, homeschooling mama of seven children, and blog author of Planner Perfect and Planner Perfect Meals. I hope to inspire you today on some baking tips I have up my sleeve, and to share some of my yummy fall, dessert recipes!
One element to keeping organized with your meal planning for your family is to plan one baking day in each of your weeks. I love getting out my planner and looking though my favorite food magazines and write down all I’m going to bake on my baking day with all of the ingredients needed; along with my main meal planning and I’m set for the week, full of delicious meals and the ingredients needed to bake up some amazing baked goods. These baked delights compliment all of my meals and snacks for my family and it is comforting to know that my family is eating well with foods I prepare for them using quality ingredients, and that I’m saving money not buying processed snacks and breads.
Here are just some of my favorite baking day, items, I like to bake-up. I’ll usually stick to 3-4 different baked goods/breads each week, changing it up each bake day.
Muffins. I’ll change it up each week: banana, blueberry, cinnamon sugar
Whole grain bread/muffins
Homemade white bread
What makes you organized with your baking day, is not only the fact you are setting a day aside each week to bake them, but you can bake extra and freeze; ready to pull-out for any meal. You’ve got muffins that freeze quite nicely for breakfast, my breads are to eat all week long for our sandwiches for lunch and the cookies are a treat that can be frozen and of course ready to eat straight from the oven!
Here are some of my all-time favorite fall recipes…
Chocolate Molasses Cookies
These are the most yummy, moist, fall cookies you’ll eat. When I found these in, Country Living Magazine, I knew that I’d love them! The molasses imparts such a wonderful flavor and creates such a moist cookie. They even have a dusting of brown sugar on top! I love making these every fall, pack them in wax paper sacks, along with a thermos full of hot apple cider and take them with me to the pumpkin patch with the kiddos.
Believe me, they’ll be your new fall favorite!
