500bkFor as long as I can remember, I have loved to be in the kitchen.  I find it truly amazing that you can take a bunch of ingredients that don’t taste exceptional on their own to create something that is delicious, and I have spent hours in the kitchen experimenting with new creations.  I know that they don’t always work out, but for the most part, I end up coming up with something wonderful.

This afternoon I have one of my favorite kitchen aprons on and I am baking up a storm.  There is a fundraiser happening in-town on Monday, and I wanted to donate some cookies and other goodies to the baking table.  It will be an easy way to help the community out as I won’t be able to volunteer my time for baking, and I would like to think that the event organizers appreciate it.

I’m going to make some of my favorites including chocolate chip cookies, banana muffins and chocolate zucchini cake.  I was going to make peanut butter cookies as well, but since there are so many people that have peanut allergies these days, I decided to skip making them.

I’m going to have a lot of fun this afternoon – the house smells delicious already!
