Baking Adventures

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 8:19 AM
So, my baking and healthy food adventures continue. The banana bread turned out fantastic! All the kids like it but my pickiest. I'm having a hard time staying away from it, and so will be delivering the leftovers to my in-laws today.


The pizza turned out good, too.












The dough was a little dense for my liking, but the kids ate it up! I'll try letting the dough rise longer than the recommended 30 minutes, and possibly look at other recipes for fluffier dough.


Then (the cooking adventures continue), I fixed eggplant parmesan for the first time (Betty Crocker cookbook again.) The kids tried it under protest, but I was told "it wasn't horrible." Not a bad first response to kids who don't like to try new things. Hubby asked for a second helping, which was definitely a good sign. He's always very honest about how my new recipes turn out - and I wouldn't have it any other way!




Not sure we'll be doing any baking today, but it's hubby's birthday and since we're going out to eat tonight, I might try rolls tomorrow.
