We are full speed into the middle of the holiday season. There are family gatherings, company parties and everyday menus to plan. And I don’t know about you, but around here there is more eating being done.

Lodge cookware and bakeware from Market Street

Lodge Bakeware

Each event brings a new menu and delicious foods to eat and enjoy. With my Lodge Bakeware from Market Street, I have plenty of recipes to bake and share.

In fact, the Lodge Bakeware encourages us to try recipes we may never have thought of before. Especially the ramekins.

They are actually quite fun to be adventurous with. I wanted to try a crème brûlée but didn’t have a torch.

So, I guess Colby was feeling a bit nostalgic and wanted a Molten Chocolate Lava Cake like the one he had on the cruise this summer. If it gave me a reason to use these awesome small ceramic bowls, I was all for giving it a try.

After all, the Lodge Bakeware is perfect for everything from every day entertaining to special occasions. Dessert was going to be fabulous.

A quick trip to Market Street to grab the five ingredients for the chocolate cake and we were ready to bake.
