How is everyone's weekend going? Mine has been good so far. The weather here hasn't been the best, but it was nice to just relax yesterday due to the rain. I did some baking, actually I should call it recipe testing since I was trying out new recipes looking for some new favourites, which was fun. What can I say, I really enjoy baking, especially when it involves trying something for the first time.
I made this.
And after a little mixing...
There were these.
Which were named "the best peanut butter cookies ever!" by my Mother.
I got both recipes from Smitten Kitchen and you can find them here, and here. I highly recommend trying them out. The blueberry crumb bars are a great way to use up either some fresh blueberries or frozen ones from last year, which is what I did. And like I said, my Mother thought the peanut butter cookies were amazing, so those are definitely worth a try! I had to leave four out in a baggy for her to snack on while I froze the rest because she said if I didn't do that she would eat them all.
On another note, today was Elizabeth Zimmerman's birthday, and according to The Yarn Harlot's page-a-day calender, it is a knitters holiday. I'm very excited, because I've never had a knitters holiday! Yay me!! "What do people do on knitters holidays?" was the question I was asked by my Mother when I told her about it. "Oh, you knit of course!" is what I said in reply, as if I've been enjoying them all my life. Honestly though, I really don't know what you are supposed to do. I mean I just assumed that knitting would be the thing, but what if it isn't? Is there anyone out there who knows what I am really to do? Maybe I should do some research...
P.S. This is just a little something to put a smile on your face. How's that for spunk??
