Day 7687 of the quarantine…or maybe it just seems that way.

I hope that you are keeping yourselves amused.

I know many of you are baking right now that is for sure.

Which I will admit I love to see.

Keep in mind that I have had this blog for going on 15 years in June with thousands of recipes on this site.

So if you go and explore I bet there is a recipe or eight that you might want to make on here.

Now is the time. 🙂

While I know many of you are experiencing hard times finding some ingredients, I’m going to give a few suggestions to you for places you might not be thinking of.

While many of you try and flock to places like Costco or Sam’s there are places in many larger cities that sell bulk to restaurants.

Some that do not normally sell to the public are now since so many restaurants are closed.

Now, just like Costco that means you will end up with a 25 pound bag of flour.

But hey, you are getting back into baking and you will need all that flour.

Let me assure you as someone who bakes all the time I can go through 25 pounds of flour in a month no problem.

Every time my husband has gone they have had all the supplies we were looking for.

If you want smaller scale baking items you may want to look at the pharmacy.

Until I found a good amount of sugar elsewhere I was buying mine at my local Rite Aid.

They have a little grocery section, like most pharmacies, that were stocked because I’m guessing most were not thinking of getting flour and yeast there. 🙂

Normally when I bake my husband and I sample a few cookies.

Or a slice or two of cake.

And then send it off to work with him or it goes to hockey.

Since most of my husband’s work, including him most days are working from home, and there is no hockey that is not an option.

So we have extra food that we have to eat over and over if I make too much.

Some I freeze, like most of the soups I make.

But baked goods can sometimes be tricky about that.

Enter these Orange Glazed Almond Muffins.

They make 6. Which is just perfect for us.
