Today, during baby's (haha) nap, froguar and I made brownies from a box. They are pretty good. Froguar did all of the pouring, cracking eggs, and most of the mixing. Baby helped by eating a brownie.

We made chocolate chip pumpkin bread today. It is delicious, if I do say so myself. The boys were quite helpful, even though Baby spent most of his time dumping things in the mixer bowl that had to be cleaned out before we could do the real mixing. I learned he could open the salt shaker to pour.

They love baking!

Last Saturday the Mor-man and I went to a Butter Tart Festival.

I have to say I was pretty disappointed. All the samples we tasted at the various vendors tasted like commercial/packaged tarts you would get at your local grocery store or bakery. Nothing tasted homemade, not one tasted buttery and the pastry on most was heavy like the tart could be a door stop or super pale like barely baked.

The winning vendor in the competition had an hour line up to purchase their tarts and they weren't giving samples so we lined up with the others. They brought 7800 tarts with them and were sold out by 1pm.

After the hour+ in line in the hot sun, I will admit, they were the best tasting tart I had at the event but still really commercial and no with buttery flavour.

I promised to bring my new Mor-man-in-law some tarts back, but I just couldn't honestly give her these tarts in good faith.

So this weekend I am baking butter tarts. Hopefully they will turn out great and I'll score points with my new MIL :nod:

Baked these this morning. Homemade filling, frozen pastry shells. They do taste very good, certainly not commercial or mass produced. Not perfect though. Need to keep hunting for ultimate recipe.

I'm not really much into sweets usually, but dang, those look good.

You're not going to eat ALL of those, are you?
