It’s that time again!…I’m ready for your next challenge!  This time the challenge is: baking!!! I know we all love something warm and fresh that comes straight from the oven and I’m excited to be pushed outside my baking comfort zone.  So you tell me what you’d like to see: is there a particular type of dessert you’d like me to attempt like cupcakes or truffles?  Or maybe there’s a specific ingredient you’d like to me bake something with like coffee or lemon zest?  The options are endless and I can’t wait to see what you think of!

I’ll be posting the results soon and would love for you to link to your own baked goods, so get ready!

Black Bean & Sweet Potato Burritos

One another note: Looking for a healthy new burrito idea?  I came up with this as I was scouring the kitchen to find a meal using ingredients that we already had.  I sauteed sweet potatoes with onions, garlic, paprika, oregano, chili powder and cayenne pepper.  Then I added black beans, spinach, Mexican cheese and salsa.  It was a big mix of big flavors and was a perfect meal!

~What is your baking challenge for me?

    ow- that looks fantastic! I love both Mexican and sweet potatoes….so I imagine they go well together. Baking challenge? How about a crustless pie? I've made a crustless pumpkin before and loved it- I'd like to see other crustless pie ideas

    Hmm…you can do anything! How about a baked dessert with…grapes! (I'm eating grapes right now).

    Some people truly dislike broccoli. Can you sweetify it in a dessert? Is that even possible? I mean, we use spinach in cupcakes and muffins and smoothies…

  • Mom

    I think you should bake something that is primarily comprised of chocolate, chocolate, caramel, chocolate, butter, chocolate, chocolate, sugar, chocolate, and chocolate.

    I totally second the macaron!!! Only because, once you've done a few batches, they will come second nature to you.. and before you know it, you are paring all sorts of flavours = )
