Things I made in May

I saw this on another blog and thought it was a great idea. I wish I could give credit where it is due, but unfortunately, I don't recall whose blog I saw this on!

I kept a list for the month of May of things I baked, mostly to keep track of everything since I don't blog about it all. Sometimes I just don't have the patience or time to get out my camera and take photos as I go along (or the daylight, for that matter). I really surprised myself at how much I had written down just 11 days into the month! I was really on a roll I tell ya. A few of the items on the list I still plan to blog about but I just haven't gotten around to it yet. I've had quite the busy start to the month of June!

and now, for your reading enjoyment, I present, The List...
  • dried strawberry macarons (2 batches)

  • vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream

  • from scratch funfetti cupcakes

  • chocolate date banana bread

  • king arthur flour classic 100% wheat bread (3 loaves)

  • milk chocolate chip buttermilk pancakes

  • mini muffin bites

  • espresso hazelnut macarons

  • milk chocolate ganache

  • vanilla sugar macarons

  • orange & cream white chocolate ganache

  • violet white chocolate ganache

  • popovers with cinnamon & sugar (2 batches)

  • chocolate muffins

  • pickled grapes

  • pain au chocolat cinnamon rolls

  • chocolate hazelnut milk skin cake

  • flourless peanut butter cookies

  • apple strudel

  • cannelé batter (had to freeze the batter to make the cannelés later)

  • rhubarb sorbet

  • baked garlic fries

Whew! I *think* that was all. I was pretty good about writing everything down. Not bad, huh? I'm off to a slow start for June, but we'll see what all I can whip up in the next few weeks.
