Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Biscuits

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Biscuits

Sweet Potato…..where do i start?It is one of those very good for you kind of root vegetable but somehow my taste buds doesn’t seem to  agree with it.Well,its not only me..my husband and kids didn’t like sweet potatoes in the forms we have tried it so far.That is until now. ..Different occasion has different dish associated with it.Sweet potatoes and Thanksgiving goes hand in hand.I know it is hot Texas summer here and thought of Thanksgiving is not even close in horizon.But during one of our recent grocery trip,i couldn’t ignore the ‘sweet potatoes’ lurching side by side as i picked up 5 lb bag of potatoes..i picked just  ‘1’ sweet potato..yes 1 is what i could bring myself to buy.. I came across Paula Deen’s sweet potato recipe in Food Network magazine (Nov 2011).Simplicity of ingredients,lack of shortening and buttermilk convinced me to try the recipe  sooner then later..So in the weekend,as what looks like a new tradition in our home,breakfast for dinner is becoming a norm.I have...

Nutty Banana Apple bread

Nutty Banana Apple bread

What do you do with overripe banana? Easy answer,you make a banana bread.That’s what I did.My husband loved it with coffee and our little boy was eating it all day. I followed the recipe from Food Network Magazine(May 2011).Recipe was meant to be the common recipe which can be customized for different fruits and nuts.So i picked the ingredients which suited my needs. I added wheat germs for health kick. Recipe asked to use only one kind of fruit such as grated  pear, apple, banana, carrot, zucchini.However,i couldn’t help but combine apple and banana together and it tasted just fine. I didn’t glaze the bread,i was lazy.Also i didn’t think my family needed another coating of sugar.Pretty sure they didn’t miss it.Yon can use brown butter,vanilla bean,cream cheese,chocolate based glazes. I preferred yogurt over sour cream and vegetable oil over butter.You can use either. I felt it was tad sweeter for my taste but noone complained(Yeah really,does that happen?).I may experiment with little less sugar next time. Choices of...

Toby’s Pancakes

Toby’s Pancakes

We read a book called ‘Pancakes for Supper!” by Anne Issacs, illustrated by Mark Teague.I think food tastes better when you have tales to go with it,more so if kids are the diners.So the title seemed appropriate enough for us to check it out. Story is about a little girl named Toby who is on her way to Whisker Creek,once upon a morning in March wood with her parents… As the story takes scary turns and Toby lands in jungle where she encounters wolf, cougar, skunk, porcupine and bear one after another.She outwitted each one of them and saved herself from getting devoured.She enjoyed  one hundred and sixty nine pancakes with fresh maple syrup for being as tired as she had been and the brave girl that she was. It just so happened that on past Saturday evening,as weekends kicked in,i was not much in a mood to cook.Pancakes are always in our house.Toby’s pancakes sounded perfect.It is little more work then my regular pancakes but it was worth...

Vanilla Bean Doughnuts

Vanilla Bean Doughnuts

We had a playdate this week with two of my friends,whom i hardly get to see .They came with their sweet little cuties to love on.As if,taking care of  9 month old was not enough to keep you busy,my friend Amanda brought us all this very aromatic,sweet and delicious homemade Vanilla Bean Doughnuts. As i took the first bite to it,next thing i asked her,as you would have guessed is,”i need the recipe”.And the sweet friend that she is,she promptly messaged me the link for the recipe .She followed the recipe as it is for the most part but that may not have given the aroma,i am talking about.She added  less then 1/4 Teaspoon of Clove powder less then 1/4 Teaspoon of Cinnamon powder Let me tell you,that made all the difference to elevate this sweet deliciousness to ‘Oomph’ level.She also saved us from sugar indulgence by not dipping and coating each doughnut in icing. And,since we do everything bigger (and better)in Texas,she doubled the size of doughnuts.More per person...

Frozen Fruit cups

Frozen Fruit cups

This past Saturday,I watched Pioneer Woman making frozen fruit cups for her kids.More then being healthy,those little frozen cups of fruit looked so cute,I just couldn’t wait to make it. I would have preferred to use peaches like PW but I was pushing my overflowing,loaded grocery cart and two tired kids at the tail end of grocery shopping,which seemed  never ending to me, and literally grabbing what I could passing by the frozen fruit aisle.Easier to grab from the aisle is what made it to my recipe.Did I mention I do not like grocery shopping?Why?It takes too much time and at times I feel like I am running around the circle.Anyway,i will stop griping now,so you can read on what went to this yummy and healthy cup of goodness.

Tumbleweed’s Sticky Rolls

Tumbleweed’s Sticky Rolls

Since i am too lazy in the morning and turning the oven on is certainly not the part of my daily breakfast routine.I made an effort to put this sticky rolls together..yup “really big effort”.It was not sticky but it was sweet goodness which my kids and i enjoyed for breakfast.Coffee is bonus. Continuing on the culinary adventure of Mrs Marmalade…this is what happened at one point (The Potluck Adventures of Mrs Marmalade” by Patsy Swendon and Debbie Little) Before long she saw a squirrel carrying too many nuts.”It would be easier if you carry less nuts nuts,”advised Mrs Marmalade.As the squirrel turned to see who is speaking,the nuts he was carrying fell on the ground. “Now look what you made me do,”mumbled Tumbleweed. Well,Tumbleweed sped away in hurry without saying ‘Thank You’ to Mrs Marmalade,in helping him pick up the nuts.But we are thankful that we tried her sticky rolls.I also like how the ingredients are in 2s,makes the measuring easy.
