So it was late last night but I had been craving pumpkin bread for days. It won’t take long to bake up a batch right? Unfortunately I only had a small can of pumpkin, but I have some home baked apple…maybe that will do. So I don’t have to half the recipe.
Did I already say it was late? I started with this Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread recipe…decided to half it, then decided not to. So what I ended up with was I halved everthing except for the fruit…Oops! What I ended up with was 3 mini loaves that rose and browned beautifully, then fell a bit. It was quite yummy though still quite sweet and very fluffy and moist. I guess I’ll have to try again.
I was inspired with this Chinese Ma Po Tofu recipe. Unfortunately I only had time to go to Trader Joe’s and they don’t sell ground pork, so I went with ground beef. Then I didn’t have time to make it for a couple days, which was the fortunate thing, because my MIL came to visit and showed me how to make the real thing family style!
To contribute to the first TweakedPalate Challenge: Lemon, I made lemon cookies. RC gave me a little baking kit for Mother’s Day (more on this later) which included some Lemon Juice Powder. Instant inspiration to do something fun with it!
I started with this Sunshine Lemon Coolers recipe, and made some …you know…tweaks…
