Welcome to Friday Baking with NotQuiteJuneCleaver! And HAPPY 17th to Rachel!

Welcome to Friday Baking with NotQuiteJuneCleaver! And happy 17th birthday to our baby girl, Rachel!  We are not doing anything today but enjoying  her supper of choice – salmon patties, mac n cheese and cupcakes.  Since Husband will be home next weekend (though briefly) we will have a family party and cake and the works.  Our gift to her this year is a tickets and a trip to see Unwigged & Unplugged in Dallas. We are all HUGE fans of Christopher Guest.  So this is going to be a treat.


Her oldest brother, Zach and Hannah will be escorting her to the Nokia Theater tomorrow night to enjoy the concert.

Now back to Friday Baking! This first week we are going kick things of with a choice of recipes.  You can make either or both and get your name in the jar twice! I chose the first  recipe for a couple of reasons.  One: Rachel asked for this cake for her birthday this year. Two: I have never made it so it puts us all on equal ground starting out.

The second recipe is an old favorite that I have not made in FOREVER and will be making this week.

Now here is what you do.  Make either or both of these recipe between now and next Friday, when you will receive a new recipe to try.  As you try these recipes document your progress/outcome with photos posted to your blog.  Make a post about this “challenge” with the recipe or recipes and photos, link back here, let me know your post is up and I will take a peek, leave you a comment saying I have be there and drop your name in the mason jar for Saturday’s drawing.  This will happen EVERY week…so you have to stay tuned!  Now if you have any questions please ask!  Are you ready?  Then follow the link to the recipes!  (more…)
