Joy the Baker's Baked Polenta 5 Hot Links We're Loving:

  1. Joy the Baker says her baked polenta with tomato and basil is “as comforting as macaroni and cheese [or] splurging on 4 slices of pizza.” Seriously, how you can you resist?
  2. For all you oatmeal cookie fanatics, it’s time to try Tuttie Dolci’s oatmeal pear cookies with toffee and cookie butter.
  3. Creme brulee ditches the ramekins and transforms itself into a fabulous pie. Design Eat Play, we like the way you think.
  4. Rosemary and garlic baguette chips by Seasaltwithfood are the perfect landing place for that spinach and artichoke dip this football Sunday.
  5. How do you vamp up your banana bread recipe? Tracey’s Culinary Adventures roasts the bananas, browns the butter and adds in some peanut butter chips.
