October 31, 2014

Happy Halloween!!!  Hope you are ready to have some fun tonight!

This week was another tough week in the test kitchen.  First up - a new oatmeal muffin recipe.  Yikes!  I am not sure exactly what went wrong, but the muffins were terrible.  The boys and I tried one when they came out of the oven (it was close to dinner so we shared one), and none of us could even finish our piece.  What a bummer.

We also tried a new banana bread, but it wasn't banana-y enough.  After we made those I still had enough bananas that were ready for one of two fates: be baked into something or be tossed into the freezer for future use in a smoothie. I have been wanting to make a new banana snack cake recipe but since it is Halloween I opted to freeze those bananas.  Who needs a cake in the house on October 31?

I am planning on making a new zucchini side dish this week, and there is a zucchini cake one of my sisters made that looked amazing (again, I know, who needs cake this time of year?  But it looks so good!).  Hopefully there will be success in the kitchen this first week of November!

Happy Halloween, and Happy Cooking!
