Baking Day

IMG_0730 IMG_0720 IMG_0723Saturday was baking day and I was able to spend the entire afternoon in the kitchen alone, making delicious treats for friends and family. While in the supermarket on Friday I found a huge container of strawberries that looked so fresh and seemed to call out an early spring that I had to turn this fruit into a delicious bread for our weekend breakfast.

IMG_0708 IMG_0732I have done many variations with this brownie recipe since my mom first let me bake at the wondrous age of 11. I can still remember how thrilled I was when she gave me these simple instructions to see if I could follow the guidelines in order to make a dessert for our evening meal many years ago.
