Freshly baked bread is amazeballs! I wasn't sure what to have for dinner and then I got that brinner (breakfast for dinner) craving. I also had a bag of Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Bread Mix in my pantry. I will tell you this too, I am always looking for a reason to put my apron on and get busy in the kitchen afternoon. So my Tuesday was spent working on a loaf of cinnamon, raisin, and ground flaxseed bread. This bread was simple to make and actually fun. I made the bread with the intention of using it for French Toast. I always enjoy making my own bread for French Toast. It is a rewarding feeling making an entire meal from scratch. I think the use of Chef Shamy's amazing butter really helped make this bread extra special.
Last night I made a wonderful healthy dinner. We had chicken marinated in Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard and some roasted broccoli. I really wanted a dessert though and then I remembered that I had a bag of Pamela's Oatmeal Cookie & Bar Mix stored away in the pantry. I am a big fan of Pamela's line of gluten-free products and I have tried several and have been quite satisfied. It was a first for me, though, making her oatmeal cookies. I doctored up the cookie mix to take it from ordinary to extraordinary. No shame in using a mix to create your baked goodies! This mix was outstanding and the cookies are disappearing quick!
