My daughter Amy, the blogger expert, and real foodie, was told that in order to make a blog effective, it needs to be concise.  Hmmm..looking at my previous blogs, concise is clearly not in my vocabulary!

Since I am so so busy in the kitchen this week getting ready for Sunday's market in Otley, this one will be very quick and to the point.

Basically, I have not stopped baking for a solid week and when I put this up as my status on Face Book, my friend Leslie asked me "if right about now I was half baked".  My reply, I am always half baked.  Just ask anyone who knows me, I am basically nuts, I take on way too much and make myself crazy, but I love every minute of it.

In the oven as I type, is my version of a delicious Golden Peanut Butter Bar.  A scrumptious concoction of creamy peanut butter, condensed milk and vanilla, sitting on a base of brown sugar, butter, nuts, flour and more, topped with the crumb topping along with peanut butter and dark chocolate chips.  Sounds and smells heavenly!

Also baking are Valentine's Day Mint Brownies with a pink fondant filling and pink sprinkles atop a deep dark chocolate ganache!

Yesterday, I made Chocolate Zucchini loaves which I split in half and filled with a decadent cream cheese frosting and put the same frosting on top.  A sprinkling of cocoa powder and icing sugar will go on right before I go.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie is done and looks mighty fine!  So good when it is slightly warmed with ice cream melting on the top!  What can be better on a cold winter day?!

My Heaven Sent Ultimate Chocolate Brownies are now cooling and I can only describe them as pure chocolate indulgence!  Over two pounds of chocolate goes into these bars of pure delight!  My customers go crazy for them!

Soon, the Cheesecake will be made, the Heart Shortbread cookies and possibly some more Rocky Road bars.  I had an order for a Carrot Cake and that is now completed and boxed.

So for now folks I will love you and leave you and get back to my very overworked ovens.  It's time to crack on and fully bake my yummies!

As always, many thanks for reading.

I remain your half baked blogger!
