So following yesterday's cooking-nesting-fest, I present you with today's baking-nesting-fest!
Now, my ability to remember things during pregnancy has gone down drastically. Recall the unfortunate "Un-cinnamon rolls"... And the more recent "I think I'll make chicken pot pie for dinner and NOT buy chicken at the grocery store..." So by the time I decided I wanted to post pictures of my baking extravaganza, it was too late, as the baking was done and the kitchen was a flour covered war-zone.
Fortunately, I chose my baking recipes from some of my favorite baking blogs, and the women who write them are fantastic at documenting the baking process.
So I present my two delectable baked goods for today:
Maple Pecan Pumpkin Bars (which I made without maple...)

Apple Pecan Muffin Cake

I was also going to make a pumpkin quick bread, but the pumpkin bars were kind of a mix between a pumpkin bread and a pumpkin pie so I decided to hold off. AND, who the heck is going to eat all these treats? I, of course, devoured a good portion of both recipes "trimming off the ugly edges no one wants" and making sure neither was toxic... however, Bob doesn't like sweets... and unless I go into labor REALLY SOON, the remainder will probably go bad and I'll have to throw it away. :(
