Spring Break....

Ah, spring break (at least for one university)....this has been a crazy year.  I'm teaching two new classes, now face to face, and I hope these will eventually settle down, but I have a feeling it will take awhile to get a groove like I have with the online ones.  Overall, they are going okay, though. Definitely a change!  And darn it, the students are YOUNG!!  I feel so OLD!!  There is a wide age group, though, from students who are obviously older than me (some have grandkids for instance) to those much younger (seemingly traditional students).

I am hoping to get caught up on a bunch of stuff, including posting pictures, over break....we shall see if it happens!

Xylitol

So Grandma gave me some of this from her herb groups.  Xylitol is a sugar substitute.  I've used Splenda before, but it is quite a pain to bake with, even using their specific recipes.  Like these Molasses cookies. Last time I made them, they did not rise...I had to do them like refrigerator cookies.  AGH!!

But this actually rose really well!  I used about 1/2 the amount that was sugar and this came out pretty well.  I did mini zucchini loaves and then sour cream loaf.

Recipe Flops

So I've had a few flops lately.  First, Strawberry Brownies. Seriously, I should NOT be allowed to make brownies.  EVER.  These SHOULD have been easy.  Yep, not.

I also tried chicken broth in the crock pot....yep, not so great.  It is okay, just not worth the effort. I might try this again through with a different recipe. 

Utlity Sink

New utility sink in the garage!
