Two more food projects. I made significant progress organizing my craft supplies the other day. And I’ve also subscribed to the Dover Publishing coloring newsletter which means lots of free coloring pages. So more crafting-crafting should hopefully happen soonish.
Project Name: Chocolate peppermint banana bread
Brief Description: I used this recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie. I’d been craving something minty, so I subbed 1/4tsp peppermint extract for some of the vanilla extract. Going for a quick bread rather than a cake, I didn’t add the extra white sugar or the chocolate chips. I did include a bit more cocoa powder than listed because I overestimated how much was left in the container The mint plus the chocolate definitely made a “nice as-is” treat even more delicious.
Project name: Pizza perfection
Brief description: No true recipe, but I used two pop-cans/tubes of store-bought pizza dough, mozzarella cheese, half a bag of baby spinach, half a drained can of pineapple tidbits, about a cup of sliced white mushrooms, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Basic pizza making process of greasing pan, stretching dough onto it, brushing dough with oil, adding cheese and toppings, and then baking. I’m not a huge fan of tomato sauce, so I left it out. With all the washing, chopping, and other prep work this did meet the 30-minute time requirement.
