While I haven't had any recent made-from-scratch baking fests, sans the cupcake frenzy for a recent birthday, I have been baking and stuffing myself (and others) with Trader Joe's bread mixes: Pumpkin Bread, Gingerbread, and Spiced Apple Bread. I can't pick a favorite. They are all delicious and easy. EASY. I suggest you try some! And if you're really feeling daring, add a pat of sweet cream butter. . .dangerous!
