Finally... may the long Labor Day Holiday weekend begin! If you're in the US celebrating the Labor Day holiday, what plans do you have in store? Hopefully something delicious will make it to your holiday table! For me, it's a relaxing weekend with family, friends and food - what could be better than that? I'm quite excited since family and friends are coming from out of town to celebrate with us! Some things I'll be highlighting in my blog in the coming weekend include:
In The Kitchen Session: Brunch - Friends are coming over Sunday morning to cook brunch with me. I'll be sharing recipes for some brunch time favorites that are great any time of day.But on to more important business... this week's Foodie Freebie Friday giveaway! I know I'm be doing my share of baking this weekend and I really enjoyed reading what readers love to bake. Everything from breads, cookies, cakes and cupcakes - all the them deliver such sweet smells from the kitchen. As the weather cools for fall, I look forward to baking some of these things up even more and getting some baking inspiration from fellow food bloggers.
Pre-Labor Day BBQ Dinner - Family and friends are coming over Sunday evening to enjoy a Pre-Labor Day BBQ dinner I'll be preparing.
Labor Day Omelette Bar - To start the day for my overnight guests, I've got an omelette bar planned with a few sweet pastries I'm baking up.
Labor Day Grill Out - This is one last attempt before the outdoor grills on our rooftop deck are put away for the season. Let's hope we can beat the rush of others who'll be using the grills!
To give us a kick start in fall baking mode, I'm giving one reader a subscription to King Arthur's Flour Mix 'n Magic Baking Club! For the month of September, a lucky reader will receive King Arthur mixes and ingredients needed to do some delightful baking–in one special package. This month's package will include whole-grain baking mixes including:
Whole Grain Buttermilk Bran Muffins - "These golden buttermilk muffins are enriched with a healthy hit of fiber."
Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies - "Oatmeal-cranberry cookies feature the sweet, nutty taste of oats, and the tang of dried cranberries."
Soft Molasses Cookies - "Old-fashioned molasses cookies are delightfully chewy and nicely spicy."
Date Bars - "Rich, moist, sweet date filling spooned onto a tender oatmeal crust, topped with streusel–now THAT’S comfort food!"
