Are you team sourdough or team banana bread? With the world staying at home right now I think baking bread has become the most popular activity and I’m not mad about it.

This weekend I put together even more amazing recipes to make when you need a project. Whether you’re looking for a new cozy dinner recipe or a baking project to impress friends on Zoom, you’ll find some of my absolute favorite, slightly more challenging recipes to try.

Wondering what you should make over the weekend? I broke these baking and cooking projects down into:

  • Breads & Rolls
  • Dinner Projects
  • Pizza Recipes
  • Creative Snacks
  • Homemade Cakes & Pies
  • Bars & Cookies

Pick a few and try these right at home! They’re truly the perfect weekend recipes to make while we’re staying safe indoors. If you make any of them, be sure to head to the recipe to comment & rate it so I know how it turned out! You can also use the hashtag #ambitiouskitchen on Instagram so that I can see it. Enjoy, xo!
