Fall weekends are for baking. I have gathered up some of my favorite weekend baking recipes, they are sure to make your Saturdays and Sundays extra special.
I love those cozy fall days when my house is filled with the scent of something baking in the oven. Weekends are the perfect time to tackle a new recipe, and maybe to even make something that you can enjoy throughout the week ahead.
I wanted to cover all the bases with this collection of recipes. Some are quick and easy, others are more substantial projects. Some are sweet, others are savory. I’ve got muffins for breakfast, biscuits to serve with lunch or dinner, and pies and cakes to have for dessert.
