I know what you're thinking..."These cinnamon buns look good". And they do. But I have to be honest. It took me 3, yes 3 tries to get these darn things right. The first batch, I forgot to add the sugar and added it later which was a big failure. Second time, I don't know what happened they just did not turn out. I didn't even bake them.
The first batch...FAIL!
Third time was definitely a charm with these babies! I even had a cheering section on Twitter for these cinnamon buns. @Tati22 AKA Gina and @LidiaLF were my cheerleaders!!!! I was not going to be defeated by these cinnamon buns. Thanks ladies for the motivation...Success!!!!
Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins(pg 42)
Just call me the "Muffin Lady". I have made every muffins in the Happy Herbivore cookbook and like the previous muffins these did not disappoint. I followed the recipe exactly. They were very moist and mouthwatering...Hubby says that I should show the muffins' insides to show the moistness...
Can you see the moistness???
Eggnog French Toast(pg 25)
Well, I made these for the Hubby and he said that he could not tell the difference between these and the other HH french toast I made. I could tell the difference. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out tasty. Again, I did not wait the required 3 minutes before the first flip and I ended up with a messy piece of bread...one day I'll learn my lesson...Be Patient!
Baked Tofu Parmesan(pg 139)
Look closely and you will see that this is not tofu. When I mentioned to Hubby that I would be making Tofu Parmesan his first response was "yuck". So I figured I needed to come up with an alternative to tofu. I decided to use Eggplant and it turned out Amazing! I followed the recipe exactly just switched the tofu with eggplant. The seasonings mixed the breadcrumbs(pg 284) created a delicious dish. Very flavorful! I just didn't make enough of it. I will make this again very soon!
This is the marinara sauce I used. It has great flavor!
Carrot cake cupcake(pg 213) Cream Cheese Icing(pg 223)
What can I say, this cupcake was everything that a cupcake should be: moist, low calories, low fat and most important scrumptious!!!! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. The icing was a little runny, I added too much milk. It didn't even matter. This cupcake melted in my mouth! I will soon become "Cupcake Lady". 38 recipes complete!
Make it With Love
P.S. This is some kick ass Chocolate Sauce
