For round three, we’ve got a fruity mashup – strawberries against pineapple-rosemary. In retrospect, I wish I had added some basil to the strawberry mallows for a more exotic flavor, but oh well, shoulda coulda woulda.

With spring just around the corner (finally, am I right? I feel like this winter has been particularly Narnia-esque, before Aslan saved the day), I decided to roll these in pastel sanding sugar to give them a nice crunch. Like Peeps, except way, way better.

In a fit of stress baking thanks to the longest and worst week so far of 2013 (and it’s just three weeks in, which does not bode well for the rest of the year), I turned my freshly made rosemary walnut butter into cookies. Which made the week a tiny, microscopic bit better. At the very least, baking them in the toaster oven at work gave the office some serious aromatherapy, which turned out to be instrumental in preventing me from actually exploding this week.

I’m kind of over peanut butter. That’s right, I said it. Yes, it’s delicious, but I think I’m going to give it a rest for now and explore all the other options for nut butters – specifically walnuts.

Of all the nuts, I feel like walnuts kind of get shafted. Almonds are great for snacking, peanuts are for peanut butter, pecans are kind of fancy, and walnuts are kind of the middle child that everyone forgets about. They’re delicious and healthy in their own right, but I feel like they get overshadowed by all the other types of nuts out there.

Don’t worry, walnuts. love you. I love you so much I’ll toast you in the oven and grind you up into a paste. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is. It’s funny how quickly sentiments can descend into serial killer territory.

The first thing I baked in 2013 was this bread, and I promptly ate half of it. While I don’t make resolutions, I do plan to eat more carbs this year, so I’m certainly off to a good start. Here’s to a delicious 2013.

My first savory muffins! Because while I do love starting my day off with sugar, sometimes, it’s nice to mix things up a bit.
