Nearly every morning, our family enjoys fruit smoothies. I use a combination of fresh and frozen fruits and blend them in myVita-mix blender (which we got at Costco a couple years ago and use daily), which retains all the fiber and nutrients that a juicer doesn't. Because "drinking vegetables" grosses me out, I add Green Superfood Powder which blends in well (translation: hides well). And, to sweeten the smoothies without a lot of calories, I add Liquid Stevia.
Try this recipe for "Baby Cinnamon Buns". I saw it yesterday on FB and KNEW it would be our breakfast today since Jason would be able to join us. What says "we're glad you're home and let's celebrate with a special breakfast" like cinnamon rolls!?!
Jason and I feel the proportions of the ingredients need tweaking a bit, but overall, the taste was so buttery-terrific! When we get it worked out EXACTLY to our liking, I will post the revised version.
So my latest challenge was Evaporated Milk. I had no idea WHAT to do with the stuff. I usually buy it when a recipe calls for it, and that is often a dessert. But, we didn't need any more desserts floating around, so I did some investigating. Here's what I found out: evaporated milk can be substituted in any recipe that calls for whole milk or half-n-half. AND, you can find all sorts of recipes for the stuff on this website: http://www.verybestbaking.com/Carnation.aspx
The recipe I chose was "Potato Bacon Casserole".
It turned out to be pretty tasty.
But, I think we all agreed that it tasted better with ketchup.
