    Also @kagesstarshroom I would love for this to be a monthly thread! I have thrown myself into my hobbies to keep myself sane over the past year, and I love seeing what other people are working on!!

  • I agree, @kagesstarshroom, I like the idea of this being a monthly thing! I'm all for recipe sharing, too. :) I have some pictures of stuff I knit that I can post later on.

    Thanks @shamrocandroll! It's not great for my waistline (or my participation in the healthy habits thread LOL) but it's fun, it takes up a decent amount of time (less time to spend thinking about my temps, ovulation, etc.) and it tastes great. I use Cake By Courtney's recipes, they're always amazing!

  • @emeraldduchess Yay! I copied the idea from the one you'd made earlier in the year, but it felt weird to reply from it so far out? I'm glad people are on board with making it a monthly!

    @mvt2003 Gorgeous--looks delish!!

  • @mvt2003 that cake looks wonderful! Very pretty blanket as well! Is that knitted or crocheted? My mom taught me to knit forever ago, and I really should try it again!

    @bluetickgal Thank you!! The blanket is knit, it's a really thick yarn and I'm working in garter stitch so it's difficult to tell! I'd love another knitting buddy on the board along with @emeraldduchess !

  • I made this dark chocolate zucchini cake over the weekend and it was great!  No pics, though. :(  I skipped making the ganache and just put some Cool Whip on top instead. If you have a ton of zucchini to get rid of and don't want to make zucchini bread, I highly recommend this!

    I'm feeling the urge to make a summer fruit galette, but I want the crust to be sugary - does anyone have a go-to recipe? I'm thinking peaches and blueberries (my local orchard opens for business this week!)

  • I have never made a galette, but Sally's Baking Addiction blog might have a good recipe.  Her site is my go-to for most baked goods! Her chewy chocolate chip cookies are amazing!

  • Y'all are making me hungry. T_T
    My new recipe of the week: Fresh corn (cut off the cob), green beans, cherry tomatoes, all cooked in a basil butter/balsamic vinegar sauce. Tastes delicious cold or warm!

    Holy moly @begging4abump that is gorgeous and you did a TON of work!! That totally counts! 

    @emeraldduchess thanks! I'll start hunting her site! I have a very specific vision, I'm hoping someone else had the same vision so I have to do less leg work on it :D

  • @begging4abump I'm just here lurking at all the delicious cakes and then bam, at the bottom is that door 😍. My partner and I made a great attempt recently at repainting our house and then we came to a stall! All the doors need work but you have inspired me to get stuck into my bay windows, if they were stripped back to their original timber they would be so fab!

  • @whattheavocado Good for you, painting everything! That’s no easy feat! We’re working room by room since everything is connected to each other, so four years in, we have three rooms completed...minus needing minor things like repairing a small patch on the ceiling and adding trim around one door. Hopefully in the next couple months we’ll have the front hallway/stairs completed. I love before and after photos if you have any—of the painting or if you take on those windows!! (We NEVER remember to take before photos. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
