A BAKER'S BABBLES - Sophomore Jenna Stanbrough shares recipes and results


Strawberry JELL-O Poke Cake

My mom asked me to make a dessert for an event she had to attend, so I didn’t actually get to bite into this one. However, I have had it before and know it is a keeper. It’s quick and easy to make, and it looks (and tastes) delicious. You ...

Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes

Over Easter weekend, I was dying to make these cupcakes I had found. What’s better than combining cupcakes, chocolate and a little Easter candy? Not much.

Oatmeal Cake

Recently I visited the Baldwin Diner for some dessert. Although I chose a slice of carrot cake, my friend chose a piece of oatmeal pie. I had never heard of oatmeal pie, but after trying it I decided it wasn’t too bad. When mentioning ‘oatmeal pie’ to my mom, she ...

Lemon Brownies

As the weather gets warmer, I’m beginning to get in the mood for some summer treats! One of my favorites is lemon bars, so I found a recipe similar to these but with more of a cake texture.

Mini Pancake-Sausage Muffins

Once again, I was searching Pinterest for baking ideas and came across an interesting idea. What was posted was a Mini Corn Dog Muffin, using cornbread and hot dog slices. I was determined to try these. After discussing with my mom, we came up with the idea of making a ...

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

As I was looking around the cupboards at home for a snack last weekend, I decided there was nothing that would suffice. I was in the mood to make something. However, it was almost 10 p.m. and I knew I shouldn’t be baking, or eating for that matter, so late. ...

No Bake Energy Bites

I’m always searching for recipes that call for few ingredients, little preparation and tasty results. When browsing Pinterest one day, I came across these No Bake Energy Bites and knew I had to try them. Anything that looks good and doesn’t have to be baked is awesome in my book. ...

Red Velvet Cake Truffles

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and so have my Valentine’s treats. This Valentine’s Day I was busy making several favorite sweets. I started out with heart-shaped sugar cookies, complete with pink frosting and red sprinkles. Then I made chocolate dipped strawberries with both white and milk chocolate. I ended ...

Peanut Butter Hershey's Kiss Cookies

Instead of trying a new recipe this week, I decided to go with a classic, Peanut Butter Hershey's Kiss Cookies.

Caramel Corn Chex Mix

As a big fan of white chocolate, this was the perfect treat for me. I loved how some of the mix was covered in white chocolate, but some was covered in caramel. Also, cranberries and nuts are a great combination, so adding those to something even better made it perfect!

Cornflake Christmas Wreaths

It's time to get back to baking for the holidays! This time, I decided to be festive with these tasty treats. They look a little odd because of the color, but once people try them, they can't resist them. They're like rice krispie treats, but with cornflakes--and green! Ingredients 6 ...

Turkey Cheese Ball

Rather than making a traditional cheese ball, I decided to add a twist. So this Thanksgiving, my family and I enjoyed a Turkey shaped cheese ball!

Seven Layer Bars

It's been a while since I've been on the blogging scene, but I certainly have not been away from the baking scene! Last weekend, I decided to try something I haven't had in a long time. These rich 7 layer bars were quick and easy to make!

Yummy Mummies

These Nutter Butter mummies were perfect for Halloween and very easy to make!

Pumpkin Sugar Cookies

While the title of this entry may be deceiving, I did not make pumpkin flavored sugar cookies. Although it does sound pretty good, I made simple sugar cookies frosted as pumpkins. The sugar cookie recipe I used is one that has been in the family for a long time, and ...

Fall Harvest Bars

After a great weekend filled with fun fall activities, last night I decided I'd come home and bake. I'd been saving this recipe for a few weeks now, and decided now was the perfect time to try these Fall Harvest Bars. Ingredients - 1/2 cup softened butter - 1 pkg ...

Caramel Popcorn

There are so many different ways you can make popcorn delicious. Whether it's simply popped in the microwave and topped with butter and salt, or stirred into Chex Mix, you can't go wrong. Like I said in my previous entry, it's time to start making fall treats! Well, I was ...

Sour Cream Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Fall is officially here! Besides the changing colors of the leaves and the cool, crisp air, my favorite part of fall is the numerous delicious fall treats that can be made. Last weekend while I was home, my mom and I decided to get in the fall spirit by trying ...

Homemade blueberry muffins

One of my favorite things to do is bake. So, for my first ever blog, I decided I would write about something I love doing. Another favorite I have? Blueberry muffins. So, rather than buying a box of Betty Crocker blueberry muffins, stirring in the oil, eggs and water, I ...
