Resolutions - Step Two - Make My Own Baked Goods


The first resolution that I made, drinking broth daily, is off to a pretty good start.  For the last week, I have had at least one or more cups of broth most days.  We had a bit of a family emergency, so I wasn't able to keep up with the broth that was in the slow cooker.  I need to get another chicken and start again. 

Even with that slight set back, I am starting my next step.  Step two is to make my own baked goods.  I've started by making hamburger rolls and hotdog buns.  Today, I made my fifth batch, and I have to say, they are so freaking good!  Brian asked me to never buy buns at the store, again!  I've gotten the hamburger roll shape down, but I'm still working on getting a good size/shape hotdog bun.

 

Although the rolls and buns are a huge hit, they are nothing compared to the my Gram's cinnamon rolls that I made the other day!  When my Gram passed away, she left boxes upon boxes of recipes.  She was the best cook EVER!!  We are so lucky to have these wonderful recipes of hers.  Right now, the recipes are split between my mom, my brother and me.  So, when I was craving some cinnamon rolls, I knew right where to turn.  I instant messaged my brother (yeah, that's how we usually "talk") and asked for the recipe.  The kids raved and raved about how great they were, and once they were getting stale, we made cinnamon roll toast.  Um. yum!  We ate them up before I could snap a pic, but I'll be sure to get the pic next time.  :)

So far, I have two steps to being successful with my resolutions, this year.

1.  Drink broth daily
2.  Make my own baked goods

Do you do your own baking?  What do you make and what do you not like to make?

Stay tuned for Step Three!

  1. Ginny, I too have been making my own baked goods plus I am using the whole grain flour I freshly milled. USA pans has some amazing pans one that makes the best New England Style Hot Dog Buns. I bought my USA Pan from Bread Beckers www.breadbeckers.com I also buy some of my whole grain and beans from them.
    I am currently taking Ann Marie Michael's Class, Healthy Whole Grains and I am learning so much. I say thank God for all the Traditional Real Food Mentors online.

  2. Hi Debra,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I do have a grain mill, but I have yet to use it. I like the idea of the hot dog bun pans...my hot dog buns vary in size and shape. ;) I'll have to check out Bread Beckers, because I'm looking for a good source for whole grains.

    I, too, am thankful for all of the wonderful traditional food mentors online. I've learned so much from the blogs I follow and the wonderful bloggers that write them.

    Take care!
