The Baking Society

We bake and blog (and eat). Though baking takes up a lot more of our life than blogging.

  • These Trix Are Not For Kids

    January 31, 2013 / By diana

    Nine times out of ten, I intentionally forget my iPod when I leave my apartment.  I’m not one of those isolated earbud-plugged blokes — rather, I like listening to New York and, to be frank, I love eavesdropping.  One of the best parts of living in a city is that people are everywhere.  Always.  To…

  • tarmac cookies aka oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies

    January 24, 2013 / By Matt

    I am not a terribly good flyer. I can’t sleep on any flight (no matter the length, no matter the time of day). I never know where to put my elbows. And I have this unrelenting fear that every time I board a plane, I am boarding a germ incubator (I have a section of…

  • A Clueless Vegan – Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

    January 21, 2013 / By jordan

  • Happy Juice Year

    January 11, 2013 / By jordan

    Well, friends, it’s the New Year! Happy 2013. For me, 2012 was like every year prior – awash in great rivers of chocolate and fields of pastry. And I know I will make several resolutions this month and break them by February, but I am determined to put in some effort nonetheless. This year’s big…

  • Minor Resolution – Almond and Flax Granola

    January 7, 2013 / By Matt

    I am not overly fond of New Year’s Resolutions. They feel arbitrary. They loom large and grey in an already cold and blue January. Of course, not all resolutions are constructed the same. I have a dear friend (who will remain nameless) who makes bizarrely self-serving and broad resolutions (i.e. make a million dollars this…
