2/16/16 Trying Chicken Steak-umms for the first time!

I have been having some issues so I was trying to cut back more... I really tried but I can not with this bread. I am not vibing with it. I SO wish another company would come out with a yeast free bread that does not cost $10+

I tried a different wrap this time. They were on sale at Heinen's... I like them!

The texture of the chicken was a little different than I expected so it didn't quite come out as planned, it was good.

Attempt #2  2/18/16
OK!... I tried again with the chicken steak-umm and I got it!!! This was excellent!!!!! looks the same but the taste was different!

Blueberry Muffins with a twist!

Yes, I've made Blueberry Muffins before and I've posted it but... I made the Bob's Red Mill Blueberry Muffins again but this time with a twist.

I didn't have any Bob's Red Mill so I used Pillsbury GF Flour for the first time (I was nervous).  I didn't have any Almond milk so I subbed Coconut Eggnog from SoDelicious. (yea, I still have it left over from Xmas & no it hasn't gone bad...Yay nondairy)
The batter was really gluey, globby, & weird.

To my surprise these turned out GREAT!!!!!!! & normal

Quick Catch Up! 1st Time For Everything 2/14/16

There's nothing better than a homemade coffee frappe!!! 2/14/16
This is the second time I've made the copycat Frappuccino recipe, this time I switched it up. I only had pumpkin spice coffee this time so that's what I used. I also decided to use some of the SoDelicious Pumpkin Spice Drink I had left over from the holidays. It's not gone bad, it's nondairy. I, as you see mixed french vanilla, Samoa cookie, & pumpkin spice together. It turned out great!!! The original post is below.

Valentine's Weekend Breakfast Mommy/Baby Style 2/13/16

Mommy/Baby Style! So for Valentine's Day I attempted to make us Heart shaped GF pancakes. The pancakes turned out great (The Lil Chef ate 5 pancakes! & said they were so good she didn't need syrup. Ok I had 4 myself) I can't duplicate what I did because I mixed the end of 2 pancake mixes together. I'll just have to create something else brilliant at another time! :D 
Crazy Hearts!

The Perfect Pancakes as The Lil Chef called them.
