The baking bug

Baking has never been a strong suit. In fact, let's be honest here... the smoke alarm was more like background music to my time in the kitchen. I like to keep it interesting? um, no.

But... that was OLD Julie. I am SO much better now. I was digging through my pantry before I ran to good ole' HEB today and realized that I have a lot of things that I never end up using and inevitably either let collect dust or land in the trash. So, tonight I decided to just get crazy baking and I couldn't be happier with the turnout...and, no . Not one use of the fire extinguisher. Hooray.

My favorite homemade banana muffins. So easy to make!!!
I was on was on such a roll that I decided to throw together three jars of chicken tortilla soup too. Now I have lunch set for a couple days this week. Perhaps I should start to make this a habit.

Way to go with the cooking!! That is quite a variety of items - I am impressed (esp. with the soup!)
