Mixed-Bag Mondays: Just Okay

As a heads up, this is likely the only post this week. We have a lot going on, so if I don’t get back on here, happy early Thanksgiving to my fellow American friends!

Pumpkin Bread

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.

Mummy Bread

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.

Junior’s Black and White Cookies

I have eaten these cookies, but never made them. I’ve thought about it, but it always seemed so complicated. After making the marble loaf, though, I wanted to try this.

Junior’s Marble Loaf

Today’s treat is brought to you from June. I was so excited to get this recipe book for my birthday because I had wanted it for YEARS. As in, back when the Fudgelet was a baby.

I noticed that many of the recipes make big batches of treats, so you will find me making half recipes, like I did here. Instead of making two loaves, I just made one, which is plenty for us.

Wayback Wednesdays: Milk Bar Brownie Pie

After making the liquid cheesecake again, I finally used the remnants of it to make this pie. And once again, this was me remaking a recipe from years ago.

It’s fairly easy compared to most of the Milk Bar recipes, but my brain was being a bit slow, so I got confused. I barely had enough graham cracker crumbs to make the crust, mostly because I didn’t realize I needed some for the rest of the pie. But, it turned out fine, anyway.

There was one big difference I noticed…

McDonald’s Strawberry Hand Pies

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.
