It feels like it's been way too long since I've really baked anything. It probably has been. Chris has been doing most of the cooking lately (which is awesome), so in theory that should free me up to bake more. But I just haven't been in the mood.

But today is a new day! I researched a few recipes yesterday of some things I wanted to try and first up was a blueberry crumb cake.

Everything that the recipe says is true - this is a super moist cake. And delicious. And since Chris doesn't like blueberries, the cake is all mine!
Since I was baking a cake all for myself, I thought I should definitely make something Chris can enjoy as well. I know he's a fan of sugar cookies and this frosted sugar cookie bar recipe looked like a great way to make sugar cookies and avoid actually having to roll and cut out any cookies. It was pretty easy to make and it's very tasty. I didn't have quite large enough of a pan, so mine ended up a little thicker than the recipe calls for. But that's ok. They're very sweet and very delicious.
Mark and Karen are in town on their way up north for a vacation so we met up with them for dinner. It has been a long time since I've actually gotten to catch up with them, so it was great to catch up with them. They're always a lot of fun. Hanging out with them was a perfect way to end a pretty awesome weekend!
