What? We’re already almost one week into the new year? Seriously, where did 2018 go?
But since we’re already in 2019, that means that I’ve had this blog for almost one year. It’s true–the first post on Danielle’s Mixing Bowl was uploaded on February 2018! In case you’re curious, it was the . Since then, I’ve made a lot f cool treats that I’ve been honored to share with all of you. When I first started this blog, I wasn’t sure where I was going with it. All I wanted was a place to share my baking and something that would force me to try new techniques. One year later, I can still say that those are just as important as when first started out.
So to look back, I wanted to revisit the top 5 recipes from 2018. The following recipes are the ones with with the most views, likes, and comments (spoiler alert: you all love peanut butter a lot). I have some fun things in store for 2019–a new theme, a giveaway or two–but, before we get to far ahead, let’s look back at last year’s favorites.

Looking for a cookie that’s soft, refreshing, and full of lemon? Then boy do I have a treat for you! Similar in taste to a scone, these lemon blueberry cookies are their lighter, fluffier cousin. Not only that, but they have lemon throughout all three parts: lemon zest in the cookies, fresh lemon juice in the glaze, and lemon sugar. Plus, using fresh blueberries provides a burst of flavor with every bite.
Not a big fan of lemon glaze? Feel free to omit it. I promise they’ll taste just as great.
A quick note about storage: these are best kept in the fridge, or at least stored in a cool room. Otherwise, because they’re so moist, they won’t keep as long.

It’s so hard to believe that it’s already April–and Spring! I don’t know about you, but I was getting tired of snow…and snow…and more snow. Don’t get me wrong, it gave me the perfect excuse to stay in and bake, but sometimes it’s nice to have a bit of sunshine and not need to ear snow boots everywhere you go.
April also means that I’ve had this blog for just over two months–can you believe it? In case you missed anything from last month, this post is perfect for you!

Who knew peanut butter cookies were so easy to make?
I admit, this wasn’t the original recipe I’d planned on for this week, but, after a snow day/ work from home day a few days ago and a strong desire to bake something that wouldn’t take up a lot of time, these were so easy to put together that I couldn’t resist. Plus, there was no way I was going to brave the storm just to buy a bunch of ingredients.
A quick note: you can mix all of this by hand–no stand or hand mixer required. You’re certainly welcome to use a mixer, but, because there is very little flour and because you can throw these together in less than 10 minutes, it’s definitely not a requirement. Completely up to you!

I can’t believe it’s already March! Though this blog is still nee, with my third recipe already out, I thought it’s be fun to look back at how we got here. P.S.: best not look at this on an empty stomach–the photos ahead might make you a bit hungry!

When I first moved to New England, there wasn’t much for me to do. Not knowing anyone in the area and too much of a homebody to venture much beyond the local grocery story, whipping up a batch of these quickly became my go-to hobby. Always a crowd-pleaser, they didn’t take much time or effort but gave me something to do so I didn’t feel so bored.
So what exactly is a snickerdoodle? It’s a cinnamony-sugary chewy cookie that it’s impossible to eat just one. My boyfriend likes to say that eating 5 is a good number, but I’ll let you be the judge. Plus, they’re small enough to enjoy one (or that 5) without feeling too guilty. So let’s get those ingredients, pull out those mixing bowls, and let’s get baking!
