Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins by Baker Becky

There are a few things that most people know about me: I love my boys more than anything in the world, there is no food better than mashed potatoes, red wine is a gift from above and.....I do NOT like the heat! This past week we had 4 days straight with temps over 100 degrees (most of them 107). This may not sound so bad to most of…

Peanut Butter Cookies (Gluten Free)

Peanut Butter Cookies (Gluten Free) by Baker Becky

Over the years I've gotten requests from clients for gluten free baked goods. I always feel really bad that I have to answer no but the truth is, I don't like to sell anything that I feel isn't my best. All of those rice flours, quinoa flours, and oat flours scare me because I don't know if I can make them taste as good the wheat…

Cream Puffs

Cream Puffs by Baker Becky

About 6 years ago I took a French Patisserie baking course through a local cooking school. I learned to make puff pastry, baba au rhum, palmiers and pâte à choux. Since that time I have only ever made a pâte à choux for gougères one time. All those hours in a classroom and I haven't done a thing with it!For those of you who are not…
