What are you baking these days? May 2014 edition, part 1 [Through May 14, 2014]

Hi everybody!! It's May in my other favourite parts of the world, so here we go with what will probably be Part 1 for this month, since the threads have exploded recently. Lots of nice newish posters and old stalwarts contributing. Hard to believe that some months we barely hit 100 posts...
I neglected to mention that February marked 5 years of happy What are you baking? confabs. Makes me a happy little (butter) tart!
Here are the results of last weekend's goings-on -- a leek and bacon tart, based loosely on a Nick Malgieri recipe, for Saturday dinner (with céleri rémoulade); some blueberry bran muffins (Bob's Red Mill bag recipe, with 1 1/2 c bran and 1 c ww flour instead of the reverse, and TJ's dried wild blueberries, yum), and those spectacular salted nut butterscotch cookies I can't stay away from. Mine spread less than others'.
So, what are YOU baking these days?
