I’ve been experimenting with different ferments this winter. We made a lemon dill sauerkraut that is delicious, a beet kraut that is great with potatoes, and we’ve got a spicier kraut mix still bubbling away. Now we are trying out a ginger bug, that we can add to juice to make soda. I was hoping for more bubbles, but we still have a couple more days until it’s ready to try! Have you been cooking up anything exciting??
These are such gorgeous cakes! So colorful and intricate. I know my 10-year-old self would have been in awe over the treat covered ones, and my current self loves the flower ones. Too pretty to eat! From @unbirthdaybakery on Instagram!
Me and baby B took to the kitchen last week to make our own granola! I’ve made granola before, but this was a no-extra-sugar variety. We added some cinnamon, a little honey, pecans, and dried cranberries. Pour some over plain, healthy yogurt, and we got ourselves a good breakfast! (Of course, B only enjoys watching us eat it, but loves helping in the kitchen.)
Our oven is back, and better than ever! We celebrated its return with some blueberry muffins. We are also looking forward to baked potatoes, roasted broccoli, lasagna, and of course, cookies!
My birthday is coming up, and while I’m more of a simple cake and ice cream girl, how pretty are these!?
Our oven is still being sassy. Which is the pits because it’s warm food and baking season! The weather even currently matches! Hopefully it will be fixed soon. In the meantime, we got the idea to make little microwave mug cakes! A fun evening treat to mix up after baby bedtime. (ps- it says two minutes, which is the cooking time, but then it says wait 15 minutes for cooling. So it’s kind of a lie, but still fun.) Do you have any favorite no bake or microwave treats we can try??
Have you ever tried growing micro greens? We decided they would make our food so much fancier, so we are growing them inside by our sunniest window. We are using an empty salad container filled with some potting soil to grow them, and keeping the seeds moist. Can’t wait to see some sprouts!
