I've been at college for several months now and I did manage to make a few things before I left and then I baked quite a bit during this vacation so I do have a lot to post today! And possibly more after this weekend as a few of my friends want to bake with me.

32. pumpkin nut muffins
Last week I went to San Francisco for a few days and wanted to make some muffins to eat for easy breakfasts while there. We also didn't have any butter so I wanted a muffin recipe that used oil instead. These were a success! At first I thought they were a bit bland when I tried one after it had cooled for half an hour or so, but I changed my mind after that. I might add a few more spices next time but it was fine. And I added walnuts instead of pecans, as we had no pecans in the house. But the walnuts were great, too.

33. oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

I LOVE oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, so this recipe looked great for me and I decided to make it before heading off to college. Unfortunately, I discovered that I do not like applesauce as a big substitute. I thought it tasted strong of apples and gave it sort of an odd texture. I also did not have dark chocolate chips so I used milk chocolate instead.

34. zucchini and feta balls
I love zucchini and I love feta, and these were delicious! I'd never really fried anything before so that was an interesting experience. I used fresh mint from my garden and dried dill for the spices suggested. I also thought the peanut oil was quite strong in the flavor it gave the balls. I might have to experiment with different kinds of oils. Definitely eat this fast! An hour and a half later I had a few left and they had gotten a bit soggy by then, though they were still very good.

35. good morning muffins

I didn't like these at all. It was a bit time consuming to make although not very difficult, but the main problem was that I didn't like it with orange juice and orange marmalade. That was mostly my fault, though. I don't mind orange jelly but I had forgotten that I disliked orange marmalade as I hadn't had it in a while. Fortunately my sister's friend liked it so I was able to give the batch to her.

36. snickerdoodle chocolate chip cookies

These were so good! I love snickerdoodle cookies and I love chocolate chip cookies, so when I got home after months of not baking I thought why not make a recipe that combined both? Again, I did make some very minor changes. The first was that I did not have toffee chips and I don't like them very much, so I just added a few extra chocolate chips. The second is that my oven might not be as strong as hers, so I ended up having to bake them an extra 10 minutes or so. I only made a half batch, too, as I had just enough butter for that. I think I ate all 8 cookies in less than 24 hours! And then I used the extra cinnamon sugar to make cinnamon toast.
