You know it’s been a while since you last baked something when you can’t unscrew the cap to your vanilla extract.
It’s been a couple busy days around here since my last post, but I’ve managed to squeeze in some bake time.
I got home early Tuesday morning, took the day to regroup & reorganize, then early morning Wednesday I went to Cali to visit my grandpa for the day and made it home just before midnight.
Then I spent yesterday studying for midterms and making some funfetti
cake pops cake balls for my sister’s golf team. They were supposed to be on sticks, but for some reason they wouldn’t stay on the stick when I was dipping them.
They’ll still taste the same though!
I don’t use box cake mixes all that often, but since funfetti is my sister’s favorite I made an exception.
Plus, it’s so pretty. Even when it’s all crumbled up.
Confession: as processed and sugar laden as it is, cake mix tastes pretty darn good.
After dipping the cake balls into chocolate, I decorated them with Halloween colored sprinkles because Halloween is just around the corner! Who’s excited??
I love Halloween and seeing all the decorations and everyone’s costumes! Some people can be so so creative. When I was a kid there were some pretty fun houses in my neighborhood to go trick-or-treating at. Some of them even made their own haunted houses! Now, I’m content with just passing out candy. It’s my favorite part
Today, I managed to sneak in a quick break to bake some muffins.
The only adaptations I made were:
Peanut flour in place of coconut flour, since I didn’t have any coconut flour, and I reduced the maple syrup content by a little bit and replaced it with more almond milk.
These muffins are so gooood!
I’m still loving muffins. Not over that phase yet.
Something that has been unusual lately though is my breakfast. It’s been more on the savory side. If you don’t count the fruit plate I usually have on the side.
It’s been alllll about the eggs lately. Poached eggs, to be exact.
I think I’ve pretty much got the whole poaching process down pat. I actually think it’s the easiest (and quickest) way to cook eggs.
I have a feeling breakfast will soon be heading back to the sweet side though. Especially now that I have some pb chocolate muffins on hand
Are you dressing up for Halloween this year?
What’s your favorite way to eat eggs?
