I kicked chronic pain’s ass this morning.

I awoke as I normally do, pounding headache and aching right shoulder from the accident.  I took some vitamin V and the I conquered the world!

I made candied bacon.  I made bacon, mushroom, egg cups.  I fed the whole family and I did it all in my batgirl jammies.  (Mostly because Oliver made me put them on, as he was wearing his TMNT jammies and he wanted some solidarity).

So, candied bacon (Which I had for the first time at my cousins’ house, making them the best cousins in the world):

1 package turkey bacon (I hate turkey bacon, I never use the stuff, however it works so well for candied bacon that it is my one exception)

1/4 cup dark brown sugar

1/8 – 1/4 cup hot water

Set the oven to 350. Stir the water and brown sugar.  Lay the freakishly uniform strips of turkey bacon on a pan.  Gently drizzle ‘bacon’ with sugarwater mixture until each piece is fully covered.  Bake until crisp.  Pull from oven and cut into small bite sized pieces of deliciousness.

Breakfast egg cup things:

Thoroughly and unremittingly spray a cupcake pan with non-stick spray. I mean really spray the sucker.

Eggs, 1 per cup

Veggie of some kind (Preferably that you like to consume with eggs)

Meat of some kind (Also that you like to consume with eggs)

Set oven to 350. Place a few small slices of meat into the bottom of each cup.  Add a veggie, like a mushroom, some onion, broccoli, etc.  Crack one egg over the top of each pile of goodies.  Place in oven and bake until the egg looks good.  I like the yolk a little runny and the whites completely cooked so I cooked it for about 12 minutes.

Pop out of cupcake pans, and gobble up with tiny bits of candied bacon.


GF Baking Adventures: Cinnamon “rolls”



It’s been another day for baking something sweet and delicious. Today, as the wind whipped through the trees and the sound of crinkly leaves hit my ears I began to long for cinnamon rolls.  It’s hard to get good GF cinnamon rolls.  Either the roll is too tough or too dry or the whole darn thing just falls apart.  Today my son and I decided to take that challenge and make them ourselves.

We used a muffin pan for our delectable treats and filled it with muffin papers.

Then we mixed:

One can Sweetened Condensed Milk (Low Fat Version)

Two eggs

Two cups Pamela’s Baking Mix

1/4 cup thoroughly pounded up walnuts ( my kids hate nuts in baked goods, so I will often mash them into a powder in order to add them without the kids noticing.)

1 tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp cloves

We mixed that together until it was thoroughly blended.  Then we filled the muffin cups halfway.

In a separate pan we mixed our filling:

1/2 stick butter

2/3 cup brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup walnuts (once again smashed to smithereens.)

We mixed that up and let it boil for a minute before taking off the heat.  Using a teeny tiny funnel I had lying around we poke holes into the center of the uncooked muffins and poured about 2 tsps of the filling into the center of each muffin.  The filling oozed out on the top of each muffin, forming an inner circle of goo.

We popped these in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

While we waited for the muffins to cook we prepared the glaze:

1/2 stick of butter

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup powdered sugar

We mixed the vanilla and butter until melted, then stirred the sugar in until smooth.  We removed the mixture from the heat.

Once we removed the muffins from the oven we discovered the filling had left a central whole in each muffin.  We filled these in with the remaining filling.  Once finished we drizzled the glaze atop each one and sat down to enjoy them with a glass of cold milk.

They are delicious!

GF Baking Adventures: Zucchini Bread.

Fall is approaching and the urge to fill the house with the enticing smell of freshly baked goodies grows within me daily.  For years now I have struggled to find GF replacements for the breads, baked goods, and fall treats I used to make.  Happily, I have finally hit upon an ingredient that gives me moist and crumbly GF baked goods.  Sweetened Condensed Milk.
I have used it in a variety of different recipes and the result is always the same.  Crumbly, moist breads that don’t fall apart.

GF Zucchini Bread


1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk 1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
1 egg
2 1/2 cups Pamela’s Pancake Mix
1 tsp Molasses
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ground Clove

Mix your sweetened condensed milk, egg, molasses, and zucchini until the zucchini is evenly spread throughout the batter.  Add in your Pamela’s Mix 1 cup at a time, stir well between adding.  Add your spices and mix for another minute or so.

For muffins:

Place in muffin tin and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown on top. (about 10-14 minutes depending on your oven.

For Bread:

Place in 8×8 casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown.  (Between 15 – 20 minutes)

Stick with a toothpick, it should return to you clean. If not, bake another minute or two and try again.

Let cool five minutes, then slice.  When slicing, run the knife through once, wipe it, then slice again.  This will prevent the knife from gunking up and removing large sections of the top of your bread when you cut again.
