Rainy day = baking day. The little man wanted muffins so I found a bunch of things I wanted to use: 1 Brown Banana, applesauce, apple, and these beautifully colored carrots I just picked up from Trader Joes. Continue reading
Talk about a sweet little lamb!
There seems to be a huge home made pop tart trend out there in the blogosphere of foodies. When I saw that someone had made them with nutella, I was sold. My husband loves nutella… his favorite: a small spoonful on top vanilla ice cream. I was hoping these would be a nice surprise for him to take on the train to work.
So I sought out for a good recipe… there are tons out there. But I settled for one on the healthier side since, well, I’m days shy of having baby #2 and my weight gain has been kind of out of control! What with all the donuts, cookies, and cake I have been making lately for the blog… who can blame me?
This recipe uses 100% whole wheat flour, yogurt, butter, and salt. Thats all, pretty simple really. But it was absolutely disgusting. To describe how yucky these duckys were, there are still 2 sitting on the counter in my house and I made them 4 days ago… AND they have frosting on them, AND sprinkles, AND they are filled with nutella!
On a brighter note, they look awfully cute and the frosting was delicious, I made it with powdered sugar whipped up with a little milk (add sparingly until you get the right consistency). Then I actually used turmeric powder to get the yellow color! I couldn’t taste the turmeric, it was a surprisingly good choice, one that I will do again since I understand turmeric has some pretty awesome health benefits.
