When your household is small people wise and someone decides to do a cookbook challenge, and it comes down to what to do with all this food? All I can say is thank the good lord for coworkers!
I had bought all the ingredients to make all the remaining recipes from Ree’s Come and Get It book with the intentions that I would make one or two of them on some random weekend to have at home. Life on the other hand has other plans and the random weekend breakfast thing didn’t work out. What did work out serendipitously was the fact that I had made the remaining breakfast recipes the Sunday before Christmas. Nothing in my mind is more of a gift than food. Yes, there is some expense to it but more than one person is benefiting from what you have made. Especially those who have missed their breakfast, or those who go without for one reason or another.
My Mom’s Muffins — Recipe No. 80
I didn’t know what to expect when it came to My Mom’s Muffins [Come and Get It, page: 24]. Personally I am not a big fan of any nuts in my bake goods. It’s goes back to my early childhood. Nonetheless if there ever was a muffin to rave about it would be Ree’s Mom’s muffins. My coworkers raved about them and I only got to eat one.
Orange Blueberry Muffin Tops Recipe No. 81
The Orange Blueberry Muffin Tops [Come and Get It, page: 30] may not have turned out to be actual muffin tops but more like crepes or pancakes. The flavor is phenomenal! So far this is one of my favorites, even if they didn’t turn out like muffin tops.
Granola Bars — Recipe No. 82
If there was ever a recipe that could feed the masses happily it would be these Granola Bars [Come and Get It, page: 4]. If you have some health conscience coworkers like I do this is one recipe that will fit into their morning routine without skipping a beat. The one thing I did differently with this recipe is to add dried mixed berries.
Amish Baked Oatmeal — Recipe No. 83
The Amish Baked Oatmeal did not make it into work with the other breakfast items. I kept this one at home for us to have in the morning. It wasn’t bad. I learned not to over heat it in the microwave too long or the sugar will burn. Instead of all the creams such as half & half or whipping cream, I learned with this recipe that plain milk worked best. One more thing. This recipe called for a vanilla bean. Which isn’t a bad thing, however, when you go to the spice isle your going to be in sticker and quantity shock. For one vanilla bean in a jar the price ranges from $11.00 to over $16.00. So be prepared my friends be prepared. Personally, I skipped out on the bean all together and this bake turned out just fine.
Thank you for stopping by!
Go about life Victoriously!
