Whisking Wednesdays #17


Welcome to Whisking Wednesdays! 

Ahh another week gone.  Where does the time go?  We've had tons of fun in the kitchen lately making cookies and homemade pasta.  My kids both love helping me.  My 1 year old's new word is "dough".  He comes into the kitchen and when I pick him up he sees dough on the counter and points and gets so exciting saying "dough, dough".  He loves to get his hands and my kitchen dirty!  Hope you all had a wonderful week as well.


Thank you all who participated in this week's Whisking Wednesdays and hope to see you back again this week!

Not only does this pie look beautiful I love cherries, love, love, love em'.  I have never had a chocolate cherry combination (nope never had a chocolate covered cherry!) before and this just really looks so pretty and I love dark chocolate in anything.  Milk chocolate is good but dark chocolate is awesome.  You can tell the crust is homemade and it just makes it so homey. I love making pie crust.

Like I've said a million times, I LOVE cinnamon!  Everyone loves cinnamon rolls and the flavors that go with it.  Plus the presentation really is cute.

Banana bread is just such an American classic.  The smell of banana bread baking just fills the house and puts a smile on everyone's face.  I too use yogurt in mine and it makes such a moist delicious bread.  This one looks so good.  Makes me want to tell the kids to stop eating all the bananas and let me make some.  I love banana bread the day after for breakfast with my coffee.  Ahhh, the simple pleasures of life!

  1. Hi! Thanks for hosting and thanks for featuring the banana bread that I made. So cute about your 1 year old, things like that will be things you will never forget. My daughter loves playing in anything doughy and I just let her!

  2. Thanks so much for featuring my dark chocolate cherry pie - it really was tasty! I don't have any little ones, yet, but I can't wait to spend time in the kitchen with my kids when I do - some of my best childhood memories were made there!

  3. Thanks again for hosting!
