Happy Saturday to you!

I hope that you’ve had a wonderful week that treated you well and that you’re ready to enjoy some downtime this weekend.

Do you have any big cooking or baking plans?

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

The Basics: Baking Soda vs Baking Powder – Baking soda and baking powder are both very common chemical leaveners used in baking; below you will learn about the key differences between them, when you should use each, and how to make substitutions.

Cincinnati Chili – Cincinnati Chili is an easy midwestern classic and total comfort food. Slow simmered for hours and served one of five ways, it’s perfect cold weather food!

Homemade Coconut Cream Pie – This decadent Coconut Cream Pie is a classic! Made with a graham cracker crust, creamy coconut filling, and topped with rum-spiked whipped cream this made-from-scratch pie will be your go-to!
