  I have really missed baking so today I am making a dozen jumbo cupcakes, lemon cake with cream cheese icing flavored with lemon zest.

 Today it is overcast, rainy and a bit foggy. I want to bake something that makes the house smell good so I decided on cinnamon rolls. I had some cream cheese icing left over from the cupcakes I made last week, that should go well on the rolls.

 Anyone that knows me well, know that I love pie pans, I have collected them for nearly 65 years. I love baking pies and will once in a while give a pie as a gift in one of my pans, if the recipient love old kitchen items as do I. This past weekend I received a cast iron pan, it is not an old piece but it is something I have not seen before, so today I am baking a fresh apple pie. I am so anxious to see and taste the results.

   Results---this pan made the best apple pie I have ever baked! It reminds me of pies bake in my Grandmother's big iron stove, the crust was baked to perfection both top and bottom, it was golden brown, I was a bit worried about the crust sticking, but it came right out when sliced, for me it has put a whole new perspective on baking pies, I really like this pan and have purchased another.

 Woke up this morning and was craving a custard pie, we have not had one for ages, I made one for us and one for our neighbor that has not been feeling well and I know she likes custard pie as well. Pie is good medicine wink

    Another overcast and rainy day here, a nice day for baking. Today I decided to bake some chocolate chunk cookies, I have a bag of the small semi-sweet candy bars from the holidays that no one seemed to like, so they will be rough chopped  along with some pecans and turned into cookies.

 Today I am baking rhubarb pies, one for our neighbor and one for us. I love rhubarb and have had a time growing it but this year we finally had a good crop.. I think it must have something to do with all of the rain we had this Spring. I have picked and vac-packed and frozen enough for 6 pies in the future, I hope to bake one for Christmas and be able to have my two favorite pies, mincemeat and rhubarb. In the markets around here rhubarb is selling for about $5 a pound. I remember back when the farmers around here couldn't give it away, I guess it is one of those that folks are rediscovering, like so many items that used to be everyday fare but are now labeled as gourmet foods. Remember when chicken wing were priced for very little?wink

   This morning I naked a Hummingbird cake, had bananas that needed to be used, as soon as it cools I will frost with cream cheese icing, such a delicious cake and so easy to bake.
