It Was the Worst

I wish I had good things to say about the microwave flax and chia seed muffin. Granted that some of it was my fault. I altered the spices, and I should also of used ground flax seed. I had had used a chia seed and flax seed mix. It looked cool, but the texture was a dry sponge and it did not taste good at all.

New Year's Breakfast - Quick Cinnamon Rolls

For New Year's day I made up these cinnamon rolls for my husband and myself. Do you know what is great about these particular rolls? It is a small batch and made up in about an hour.  I initially went to Pinterest to find a small batch recipe of cinnamon rolls, I got rewarded with not only a small batch recipe but on that is quick. There are days that you want to make cinnamon rolls for breakfast, but don't want to wait until lunch to eat them. This is now my favorite recipe for cinnamon rolls and you can find them here on Pinterest.

Improvised Stir Fry Rice

It did not suck!
This dish has rice scrambled eggs, rice, carrot, peanut butter, soy sauce, brown sugar, peanuts, and ginger. I love peanut butter. period. I had to do a little searching to find a Thai peanut sauce recipe. I found a simple recipe, but I did not have sesame oil. It turned out good for something I just whipped up. I wish I had sesame oil, I did feel it was missing something. All I did was cook up the rice, mix 1T peanut butter, 1T brown sugar, 2T soy sauce, and a little ground ginger together in a bowl, scrambled an egg in the fry pan, added shredded carrot, the sauce, and some peanuts. This is something I would try to make again.

More Posts in the New Year

Happy New Year everyone! One of the new resolutions I would like to do is to try to do more posts. This would be difficult to do since I have more than one blog.

Yesterday my husband was in the mood for Mexican food. I don't cook much Mexican food, that usually involves taco ring. I kept it simple and made tacos. Going to Pinterest for inspiration, I heated the tacos in the oven. I got the taco shells that can stand up, put a layer of refried beans, taco meat that has ground beef, canned tomatoes, and taco seasoning, and topped with shredded cheddar cheese. Put the taco in the oven until the cheese melted, about ten minutes. My husband enjoyed it. I have leftovers, so I will make more for lunch today.

This is not the best image of bread pudding, I made this a few days ago. I found a recipe for pecan pie bread pudding on Pinterest. The link can be found here:

All ì can say is that it was tasty. Most bread pudding with the sweet crunchy pecans, I wish I had caramel or whipped cream to put on top.

Raisin Spice Cookies

My husband hinted that he wanted raisin spice cookies.  I originally did a post seven years ago and posted the recipe. This was a cookie that my mother-in-did and the recipe is written down on a recipe card. I mentioned in the original posted that recipe give the flour portion as 4 cups as 1 1/2 batches. It still fells crazy that the recipe doesn't give the amount as a single batch. So I thought I would figure the weight, so I went with 320 grams.

Making Cookies With My Granddaughter

We usually have grandchildren over after church and usually involves making cookies.

Most of the time it is chocolate chip cookies, however I didn't have chocolate chips. I undead up making sugar chocolate chip cookies. Making Cookies With My grandchildren makes baking that much more enjoyable.

Coffee Cake in Mug

It was one of those mornings that I was in the mood for coffee cake, but I really did not want to make a full pan of coffee cake. With one three of us in the house, I thought it would not all get eaten in a timely manner or I would just eat more than I wanted to.

So it was off to find a recipe on the internet for a coffee cake for one recipe. I was willing to bake it.
So I found a recipe that could be made in the microwave and included all the ingredients I had on hand...or so I thought I had.

I could not find the vanilla I needed. Search everywhere in the kitchen for it, could not find it. I found maple flavoring and used it instead. Good choice, I may continue to use maple favoring for this recipe in the future.

The recipe link is in with the picture and can also be found here.
There is no egg in the recipe, I might try substituting egg for some or all of the milk in the future.
