    but you might remember me as Janiebakes from the old Baking Circle. I have dropped in from time to time to read what y’all have been doing but was not ready to participate until now. Many thanks to Mike who walked me through all the roadblocks that Yahoo threw my way. I am heading over to “what are you baking the week of April 18th” to make a post!

    Glad we got all the kinks worked out!

    If you are still in contact with others from the old KAF crowd, we’d love to have them come join us.

    Welcome Janiebakes! I remember you from the Baking Circle. In particular, I recall some posts where you and others were baking your way through the King Arthur Cookie baking book, although I’m unsure how many recipes were baked before people got busy with other projects.

    Janiebakes, Welcome! I imagine we’ll all be enriched by your baking/cooking comments here. Thanks for joining us.

    Thank you for the warm welcome. I am not in touch with other members of the old baking circle. This blog was a comfort to me many times when I was missing the old board.
    I think we got through about a dozen of the recipes before losing interest. I think we were going through the KAF Cookie Companion. Can’t really eat like that anymore. I was in my 40s and 50s with two teenage boys in the house. We are now empty nesters and retired as well. Can’t even ship the cookies off to work. That is much of the lure of the ration baking to me. A more sparse but still tasty baked good.

    Some of those Cookie Companion recipes were decadent. I do not open that cookbook anymore because almost every recipe has copious amounts of butter, and I had to cut saturated fat in my diet. Sigh. Those soft barley cookies were one of our favorites–or maybe that recipe is in the wholegrain baking book.

    I have gotten pretty good at finding oil-based desserts or adapting recipes to use less saturated fat and more whole grains.

    I’ve only made a few recipes out of the KAF Cookie Companion, but when you already have the world’s best chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe (IMHO, at least), who needs a large repertoire of cookies?

    Hi Kimbob, good to see you again too. You were on the Bakingcircle as long as I can remember. Cwcdesign, I remember you too. Nice to be back in touch.

    I agree about the KAF Cookie Companion being decadent and not getting much use these days. I am more on the lookout for recipes that use less sugar and butter as well. I also find that I like making my old favorite cookie recipes much more than looking for new ones.
