I'm going to start trying to keep track of the things I cook and craft throughout the week. I do a lot of stuff that isn't worthy of its own blog or is such a close copy of someone else's idea that I don't feel right posting my version of it (unless I can add to the discussion).
Candied Orange Peels: http://www.brighteyedbaker.com/confessions101/diy-candied-orange-peel/
Thoughts: These are wonderful. I also rolled mine in powdered sugar while they were still warm just to keep them from being sticky. I had seen where other recipes suggested rolling them in regular sugar but I ran out of sugar (gasp, how did that happen!??!) so I grabbed the powdered stuff.
Vegan Breakfast Sausage: http://www.food.com/recipe/vegetarian-sausage-patties-388968
Thoughts: These are terrible, seriously, nasty. They have a poor texture and taste absolutely nothing like Morningstar Farms breakfast sausage patties.
Happy Baby Breakfast Cakes: This was a recipe I made up on my own. I think I'll post it later this week just to get it in writing. They were very strange but proved to be perfect for the little guy who still only has 4 teeth and an ever-growing appetite.
Bowls of Goodness: Another one of my made up recipes, this one was for dinner. I'll post the recipe later in the week. It was a stir fry sort of meal but so easy and contained ingredients we always have on hand.
As for projects outside the kitchen, I've started planning our our garden and placed a couple of hearty orders for organic vegetable seeds. This year I'm using SmartGardener to plan out the garden. If you're like me and don't have confidence in your gardening knowledge, this is a great site. I was able to pick all our seeds out from very extensive options. It helped me create a garden layout based on good companion plants, shade, etc. It also created a calendar for me so I know exactly when I need to start seeds indoors, when others go in the ground, how and when to amend the soil for ideal growing conditions, etc. I'm really impressed with this free website and am really eager to get our garden going.
Thank you for reading,
