One week after the birthday celebration, the carrot cake seems to taste even better 😄 Maybe it’s because this is the last of it...?

Seriously though, when you use primo ingredients, sometimes the product ages well. I learned that this is definitely true for pound cake: even slightly stale, it is buttery and divine

English Muffins. I love how bread dough is so forgiving. Froze some leftover whole wheat dough, then left it on the counter to thaw, 2 days ago. Kept punching it down because I wasn’t ready! Then finally just decided to bake it on the stovetop. Voila!

Fruit & Nut Bread -- this started as overnight oats that was left over. Oatmeal with honey and lots of dried fruit and nuts, yogurt and milk, cinnamon. There was about 1-1/2 cups left, so I brought to room temp, added yeast, flour, oil and salt.

I'm calling this lunch--Vegan Corn Muffins, spiked with whole kernel corn, garlic & onions, plus a little cayenne pepper, cumin and nutritional yeast. Egg substitute: aquafaba! My first experiment with it. instead of 2 eggs-- 6 tablespoons of the water drained from a can of garbanzo beans. Amazingly, the texture mimics eggs. This was for one bag of Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Cornbread Mix. Sub'd unsweetened soy milk for the dairy. So, vegan AND Gluten free.

I saved a bit of dough from the Angel Biscuits I made on New Year's Day, and put it in the freezer. All I did today was let it thaw and rise, then baked off the biscuits. Dough is so easy like that! Yummy warm biscuits - mmmm!

Biscuits don't have to be round, and if you're in a hurry, just cutting the dough like this is quick and there's less waste. I simply patted these out - no rolling. Also, they're mostly whole wheat flour, so not as light but substantial and flavorful

Cake Mix Pie Crust

Definitely going to try this, but won't use Duncan Hines cake mix. I will try substituting an organic cake mix, such as Immaculate Baking Co. or Dr. Oeteker's.

Make a Chocolate Cake With Avocado Instead of Eggs and Butter

Hm....this seems worth a try, for sure

If you know me, you know I love some chocolate cake. Chocolate frosting is the only kind of frosting I’ll eat–everything else just tastes like sugar. So it came as the biggest surprise to me that I fell in love with this vegan, egg-free, butter-free
