Made a single serving chocolate cake from CCK for my b-day! It was alright, but I think I'm not a HUGE fan of baking in the microwave. Things just don't turn out as well. But I made her Reeses Pieces frosting (using sugar free syrup, and PB2), and that was super yum - I ended up just dipping my cake in it. You have NO idea how long it's been since I had cake with frosting - it was such a treat!
Speaking of my birthday, lookie at what M got me.
I AM NOW THE PROUD OWNER OF A VITAMIX!
That's right... be jealous. I can't wait to play with my new toy! Squee!!
And oatmeal continues to pour out of my kitchen. Not literally. But I did make bottomless oats again, this time Banana Bread flavoured (using maple syrup instead of molasses, and using 1/3 of a banana). I have found that the oats are best simmered really low with the lid on the pot for about 1 1/2 hours - then they get nice and thick, and no liquid is gone - hence, more food ;) !
