Love how baking makes the house smell so yummy!
But before I get to what I created today need to get to the bad stuff.
Its official, DL has the flu. Up at 1am ish thinking he was going to expel dinner but thankfully it was a false alarm. Then again at 2:30ish and again sometime around 4 (both false alarms). It was then I just let him crash in my comfy chair. He was happy (as much as one could be with a 103 deg temp and drugs), kittehs were happy (someone up) and I could sleep. He has been living on toast, water, gator-aide and a mother who is constantly pestering him to drink.
Gotta love Tylenol and Advil, anti-fever wonders they are.
So after failing to take a real day off (yup – stupid me I checked my phone and logged in) and dealing with mr-sicko I gave myself a break and baked.
More pumpkin cookies but used chopped cranberries instead of chocolate chips.
to this (made 36)
Love these – no eggs!
While those were baking I cooked – cranberry sauce. Cant eat turkey without it!
May last us a week.
And finally Pumpkin-Cranberry muffins
Used the bread recipe on the cranberry bag. The bread recipe is a family favorite and to put a twist I made it into muffins. I was able to get 22 muffins from this batch.
I will be using this same recipe but replacing the cranberries with chocolate chips at a request from P. He’s also asked for a mix of cranberries and chips. Ive created a monster!
Hoping that making these home made cuts a lot of the cost of buying coffee cakes at Costco. I had thought of doing mini loafs but figured muffins would be much easier to store.
Tomorrow I hope to make banana, more pumpkin/cranberry and some pumpkin/chocolate chip muffins.
