Hi All - 

The vacation is almost over, but before it ends I can direct you to my guest post with Jill, over at Dulce Dough, who is taking a vacation of her own. So head over and check out my recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Muffins!

Key Lime Tart

Ah, vacation. Hope you're not too jealous of my fabulous tan and my oodles of free time. To make it up to you, I'm sharing one of the best desserts I've made in a long time. We're talking about a top contender for best treat of 2011. And it's so easy.

Guest Post - Rhubarb Cake

So, while I am enjoying my vacation I'm putting others to work for me. I asked the lovely Jill over at Dulce Dough to guest post here, and she graciously agreed. In fact, since she's going on vacation later this month, I"ll be able to return the favor soon! So read on, and visit her site for more delicious recipes! I'll be back later this week with a previously created dessert - this is one you won't want to miss, I promise.

Hello, I’m Jill from Dulce Dough. When Amy asked me if I would be willing to do a guest post at Baking and
Mistaking I was honored and excited. I knew exactly the recipe that I wanted to share. In fact, right before I
received Amy’s email I had been out in my garden pulling rhubarb to make one of my favorite recipes—my
grandma’s rhubarb cake.

Homemade Apple Chips

Are you ready for a recipe with one ingredient? Yes, one. I promise. One. And no special tools. No fancy techniques. But really: deliciousness.

Fruity Pillow Cookies

A cookie inside a cookie? Yes please! I didn't say no before, and I certainly wouldn't say no now. Plus these are delightfully colorful, and oh-so fruity. The last time I made cookies with "pillow" in the title was quite an adventure, so I figure these would be the same.

Tropical Loaf Cake

Do you like pina coladas? And getting caught in the rain? While I'm more likely to answer yes to the second question than the first, I can certainly get behind this tropical loaf cake made with fresh pineapple and fragrant toasted coconut. Sorry, I'm missing the rum.

Pink Lemonade Bars

I didn't wear a jacket to work yesterday. I planted my vegetable garden. My bedroom window has been open for a week. Ladies and Gentleman...I think it's spring. And what tastes more like spring than a big glass of lemonade? A big glass of pink lemonade.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Is there such a thing as a grown-up cookie? If there is, these cookies certainly qualify. With the extra flavor of whole wheat flour, a toned-down sweetness and the 'adult' taste of semi-sweet chocolate, these cookies would be perfectly at home at an elegant dinner or cocktail party - events I am obviously never invited to.
