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 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!
Since I’ve been feeding this little guy around the clock, I have a never ending craving for cookies. I froze some chocolate chip cookie dough before he came, but I had a bit of time to whip up something different over the weekend. These flourless chocolate almond cookies turned out very good, and (comparatively) healthy too!
We grilled pizza! Something we wanted to try all summer. Turns out, its not difficult at all, and makes a super tasty pizza! We made pizza dough in the bread machine, then made little pizzas with leftover chicken, bbq sauce, green peppers, onions, and zucchini.
We still have some more dough in the fridge for pizzas later this week too!
