All stocked up

Its funny how most people stock up for their trip by buying things for themselves to prepare for the journey ahead. I stocked up my mom today for my Quebec trip. With baked goods. Specifically banana bread and muffins.

They are now all chilling (hehe) in the freezer until she deems fit to pull them out, defrost them, and proceed to devour them without me around.

She sweetly asked me last night, around this time, of how she will have to manage with me going away. Not with regards to how much she’ll miss her one and only offspring. But rather that I won’t be here to bake healthy breads and healthy goodies any more.

Isn’t she sweet? Haha, I kid of course. But still. It hit me. I was leaving her stranded here! So of course, this morning after my workout. I squatted my butt in the kitchen and baked for about 2-3 hours and got everything done! Cooled it for the rest of the day, and just popped them in the freezer not too long ago.

We’re all good here now.

Baking up some yumminess!

I went to a family birthday celebration this weekend and I had baked some Oatmeal Molasses Bread for the birthday man. 🙂 He loved it. Which is pretty awesome!


Recipe from Food Coma

Then tonight, I had a bit of an itch. An itch to bake. I turned to my trusty toaster oven and asked him what he would like. He in turn replied “Almond Muffins, please.” (Yes, my oven is very polite.)

So I complied.


Recipe adapted from Elana’s Pantry

And I baked up some Almond & Raisin muffins (without any sweetener added). I’ve been playing with this baking with almond flour business. So far? I’ve been LOVING it. Granted I don’t think I could ever adapt a fully Gluten-Free or Paleo lifestyle. But I feel its beneficial to expand my horizons (especially with food & nutrition) and experiment with new things.

Why not, right? You’ve only got this one life. You gotta make it really count. 😉

Fin.

Finished product. 🙂

I have to say, my tastebuds are plenty pleased.

I think this makes me feel much better about something I did (or rather didn’t do) this past friday. I had baked all the goodies for a bake sale, which included several types of cupcakes (both regular & mini), peanut butter chocolate chip cookies (which is the first time I’ve EVER made cookies by myself), and triple chocolate brownies.

Guess what?

I didn’t take a single picture.

Damn it.

I made to make all of these things in one night because I had a morning class Friday and the bake sale was going to be right after my class. Which meant I was elbow deep in mixing and baking. Oh, and of course screwing up because I botched the first batch of cookies.

Oh well.

I’m sad that I didn’t take any pictures. However, I’m very proud of myself for having baked all those goodies independently for the bake sale.

Yay. Go me. 🙂
