Bake Like a Beekman is Moving

After much thought, Bake Like a Beekman will be moving to a Facebook only group.  By moving to Facebook, it allows our bakers to post their own photos without having to submit them via email.  We believe this will allow for greater interaction between group members. 

If you're interested in keeping up with our bi-weekly recipe selection, join us on Facebook at

We hope to see you there!

You Chose... You Made!

It's always a pleasure to see what our Beekman Bakers decide to make when we do a readers choice recipe.  Have you found your favorite? 

Sue from NJ selected the Strawberry Shortcake with Balsamic Syrup.  "What an amazing dessert to serve to my family after dinner on a beautiful Sunday evening.  I was able to bake and assemble dessert easily after dinner using strawberries I picked earlier in the day at a local farm allowing 'pick your own.'  Another awesome recipe!"

Going Bananas!

Our recipe for this two week time frame was a throwback to childhood:  Banana Pudding with Vanilla Wafers.  I remember my Mom making this family favorite and it was oh, so good!  Let's see what our Beekman Bakers did with this classic:

Sue from NJ
When Sue submitted her photo, the banana pudding was in the fridge chilling. 
"I can't wait to try this later!  It's in the fridge chilling.  Taste tests on the vanilla wafers indicate it will be a hit!"
