Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Muffins
So it’s been a while since I posted. Why is that, well because I’ve had a complication from my surgery which was five weeks ago. By week three post surgery I was pretty much back to normal. Then out of nowhere I was in such extreme pain I curled up in the fetal position on the floor putting the boys to bed one night.

Needless to say the pain didn’t go away as I was hoping. On the fourth day I went to the doctor. Long story short I was healing wonderfully but was suffering a diverticulitis flare up. So anyway, I went on a short liquid diet and now am on a low residue diet. This is extremely difficult for me as I am craving my usual fruits and vegetables which are now verboten. I am stumped every day as to what to eat. I can’t have what I want. I haven’t been cooking like usual lately, thus no blog posts. Continue reading

Scarlett’s First Loaf

This morning I made my first loaf of sourdough using Scarlett, daughter of Priscilla. Thanks to Celia for sending the starter, I think we are going to be having lots of fun with this!!

Once Sean saw the camera come out he insisted on being in some of the pictures! Of course if it meant eating bread he definitely wanted some of that!! He helped me eat the first piece, my personal favorite. Give me an end piece with lots of crust and life is very good.

He also enjoyed a ham sandwich for lunch.
Overall I’m pleased with my first loaf of sourdough. I still have plenty to learn and practice, but I’m fine with that. The family is more than fine to eat all the loaves in the meantime until I master it!

In My Kitchen – March 2015

It seems another month has passed. While our kitchen has been pretty quiet lately due to my recent surgery (curious and need a laugh, check this out), we have still had a busy month. Thanks as always go to Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for hosting such a fun round up of posts.

This month in my kitchen the boys have been showing more curiosity and desire to learn. It began early in the month the boys waking up early and getting ready to prepare breakfast in bed for Mommy and Daddy. They made this adorable list (they are rather obsessed with notebooks right now)!
