I made another attempt at gluten free banana bread. This time I bought a mix and it was actually very close to regular banana bread, the closest I have ever come. I switched out the milk with coconut milk, and the eggs with egg replacer and it still turned out really dense but light and delicious.

It is pricey, but in comparison to all the flour ingredients I bought for the recipe that turned out so-so, I think this is a better value and much easier to make. I prefer to bake from scratch, but with gluten free, I go with what is the best taste and quality because some of it can be down-right inedible.

Feel like making bread again today. Yesterday it was challah. Today I'm well into a couple of loaves of pumpernickel.

Oops, forgot to mention baked a couple days ago. Gotta mention it since I really don't bake much. I guess Bakechef's brownies got me going. Anyway, about the middle of last week I baked both a banana nut bread and a batch of oatmeal choco chip cookies. They're both half gone now. Gotta think of something else to make!

In Aruba I made a tres leches cake for my stepdaughter. It was shared around the pool with the folks who contributed vegetable oil for the cake and vanilla for the whipped cream.

Daughter was thrilled and several folks asked for the recipe. That cake is a real crowd pleaser.

Just put a dozen hamburger buns in to bake.

Glenn saw an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives where a place called Crockett's Public House in Puyallup, WA was featured. The dish that caught his eye was something called Mom's Sloppy Joe. Fortunately, I could pull the recipe up. I printed it off and will get what ingredients we don't have tomorrow. In the meantime, the buns are baking and we'll be ready for some sloppy good sammies.

He was really taken by what he determined were great ingredients in the meat mix. The recipe does sound quite yummy.

It looks like I will be at the house site a lot tomorrow, so might as well make it fun

Aldi's has apples, 3# bag for $1.69, so I guess I will bake an apple pie today.
