The worst.

Please for the life of me do not mix these up!

Paula Deen your a food genius but these seriously should shout out their contents when you pick them up.

So I went to the trouble of making oatmeal from scratch; ground up my oats, pecans, banana chips, measured vanilla, brown sugar and milk (Lets be honest, I didn’t measure…) was instants away from blasting itself in the microwave when I grind up garlic all over it.

90 seconds later I tasted what I thought was bad milk. Nope. Let me tell you that horrid taste lingered and lingered. So glad I went to the double trouble of doing the whole process again because it needed to be redeemed in my mouth. Thank goodness for that because I ate the stuff for the next few mornings after with for sure cinnamon “essence” on top.


Threes a charm.

So who hasnt wanted to make butter? And breakfast cake? And bagels? All in one day? Calm down, it was remarkably simple and the timing worked out perfect.

First, bagels. Bagels made of dough. Doughs gotta rise. So I shook (taking turns with the Hband) away my whipping cream n marble (in tupperware because all my mason jar lids are MIA) and made just enough to produce the 1/2 cup of buttermilk I needed for my breakfast cake.


This was fun to do when I was younger but who would have guessed husbands would be just as in to it?


A leavened, doughnut-shaped, firm-textured roll, with a brownishglazed surface, made of dough first poached and then baked.
I had no idea you had to soak these babies before you cook em. Interesting. Besides the waiting these dough rings are a cinch. I highly recommend them with strawberry cream smeared on them.

Breakfast Cake

Note to self: When you don’t have a lemon zester, a cheese grater is not an adequate substitute…

Besides the occasional hunk of potent lemon peel, this was delicious and served as a wonderful breakfast (and snack) for a few days to come.

I also added half a lemon lemon juice to it because well, blueberries and lemons go together like teen girls and vampires nowadays.
