It had been so long since I made this dish…since before the Fudgelet was born! But I remembered it being yummy, so I decided to try it…but with a slight change. I added sausage! I also had two sous chefs with me.Continue reading
The Chiplet has a Highlights Five magazine subscription. They have a recipe in each one, and most are fairly simple. This one was stepped up a bit with a pumpkin bread recipe. The Chiplet was really interested in making it, and I decided to try since I hadn’t made one in years. It actually tasted really good. I froze the second loaf for us to enjoy later this season.Continue reading
I feel like it is especially important this year to do more seasonal activities to help the year have a bit more order and fun. (Yes, order and fun can go together.) So, seeing mummy bread was perfect. It was something fun to make, but also something different. The bread turned out so fluffy and almost like a Danish because of the glaze.Continue reading
We actually had this for the start of summer, but it also works well for the Fall since it uses apples. If you’re in the mood for a slightly different breakfast food item, then this is perfect because it doesn’t require fancy ingredients (I actually skipped the lemon juice because I was out, and it was still okay). It is also pretty fast to make it.
Now, I can’t say I’ve ever had the real McDonald’s pies. I think I might have tried the apple one before, but I definitely never tried the strawberry one. Anyway, when I asked K what he wanted for his birthday treat this year, he said…”something with puff pastry, strawberry pie? hmm maybe cheesecake or cream cheese, maybe the McDonald’s pies?” and I was reminded that I had seen a recipe for a copycat of the McDonald’s pies. It turned out that the recipe was for the apple turnovers, so I took inspiration from Bravetart to do my version.
When I made this for lunch one day, no one knew what to expect from it. It ended up being quite good! I don’t even like ham that much and I still enjoyed it. The sweet potatoes are just that: sweet. Paired with the salty ham and seasoning, they go well together. Next time I would like to good the sweet potato even more and see if I can brown it more. I was worried about ruining it, but I think it could be even better with more caramelization.
