Peanut Butter & Jelly Cake

I made this cake for Gregg’s birthday this year. I’d made his traditional Red Velvet Cake in the form of a cake roll for him to take to work with him that day, so I thought I’d change things up a bit. This was an amazing flavor – it tasted just like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but in the form of a cake! I did not not take pictures of the process, but it’s very simple.

Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Ever since the first time I used a fresh pumpkin, I’ve much preferred that over canned pumpkin. I have not yet come across a pumpkin recipe that I wasn’t able to use the fresh pumpkin in lieu of canned. This pie turned out beautifully and cooked perfectly. I used whole wheat flour and coconut oil to make the crust.

Observing a ‘Daniel Fast’

In observing the diet, I will eat only vegetables, fruits, and unleavened bread that does not contain any ingredient that is not made directly from a vegetable or fruit. For instance, I am going to make tortillas out of fresh ground flour and coconut oil (instead of shortening or beef tallow). When I make a salad, I’ll flavor it with olive oil (cold pressed) and lemon juice. I will only drink water. I will allow my kids to eat dairy, but I likely will not be preparing meat for them.

Scrumptious Cinnamon Honey Scones with Raisins

I saw this recipe on GNOWFGLINS’ blog. This is a soaked wheat recipe – you soak the wheat overnight in an acid (in this case, apple cider vinegar) so that the phytic acid in the grain is broken down and your body is able to absorb all of the nutrients in the grain. I made this to take to Sunday School for breakfast. I worried that they would be heavy, dense, but they were amazing. They were so light, and melt-in-your-mouth. The original recipe is called “biscuits” but, they seemed more like a scone than a biscuit. They were SO good. My pictures are showing me making a double-batch to accommodate the Sunday School class.

Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Chip Cookies

I stumbled upon cinnamon chips at the commissary years ago and made the recipe on the back of the bag. These things were AMAZING. Everywhere I went, people asked me for the recipe. Then one day I couldn’t find them anymore. I searched everywhere, every store, all the time for them (I will admit that I still look for them in the baking aisle.) When we moved to Kentucky, we found Meijer stores and — they carry them! So, good luck finding them. I DO intend to play around with making my own cinnamon chips, so look for that sometime in the near future. I have since adjusted the recipe on the back – and they’re even better than they were before (which seems not only improbable, but impossible.)
