Freezer Baking

Whew! What a day. I've haven't been doing much baking lately. I've just needed a break. I've made the occasional batch of cookies and granola bars but nothing like today. Yup, my family has been eating bread from the bakery store. I've been able to get the $4.50 loaves of good bread for a dollar per loaf. So I took a much needed break. But alas the prices are going up and my Husband has really needed some home baking.


His favorite, whole wheat chocolate chip cookies. He really likes the with dark chocolate. I used to make up 14 dozen raw cookie dough balls and freeze them, but I found that we(I) like to eat frozen raw cookie dough.hmmm


A small batch of whole wheat banana chocolate chip muffins. I want to get some millet ones done and coconut.




Bread rising in the background and breakfast biscuits.


Here's a list of everything I accomplished:

7 dozen chocolate chip cookies

1 1/2 dozen banana chip muffins

6 loaves of whole wheat bread ( about a 50 cents per loaf)
2 dozen gigantic breakfast biscuits with homemade turkey sausage

16 1# whole wheat hot pockets (Italian and cheeseburger)


I'm done for today, but I would like to get in a couple dozen granola bars and oatmeal cookies before craft day.


What are you cooking up? Any favorite recipes?
