the weekly treat

SONY DSCLately, I’ve seen a lot of daily/weekly/monthly challenges and was feeling a little inspired. I know I just recently became domesticated, but I have a lot of family and friends who love to bake and are always showing off with their awesome pictures of their awesome food.

So, I decided to start “The Weekly Treat,” a group on Facebook where we share our equal love for baking and all things sweet. Every Monday I will post a sweet treat. One week, it could be cookies…the next, cake. Who knows, it’s a crazy world.

Then, you can do whatever you want with it. For instance, if you are a beginner, you could find a relatively easy recipe to follow. If you’re an avid baker, this could be your chance to revisit a classic recipe or maybe challenge yourself to make something different.

Since I’m on this health kick, I’m going to challenge myself to find a healthy alternative to everything I make. I’m trying to keep all my treats below 5 Weight Watchers points per serving. I know…life is super fun over here.

We’ll all post the recipes we’re using and I’ll share any recipe I can find to provide a little inspiration for everyone. At the very least, you might find some new recipes. You could also find some new blogs to follow or even some new friends!

So, whether you’re a baking addict or you’re just getting started, feel free to join our group! You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter for more recipes and baking inspiration.
