My first new recipe of the year. Was very easy to put together. Chicken came out very moist and tender. Lemon gravy was a failure, just too bitter from the cooked lemon peels. I did not blend the lemon rind, but enough of it leaked into the meat juices to make it taste bad. I would use the method again, but save the lemon for the end.

I have a problem of not following recipes exactly, but this one I did for the cake. I had the ingredients for the topping but DH likes it with whipped topping. I have some in fridge to use up so that is what we did. We both really like it.

I don't know how many recipes I will try in 2022...but I am currently trying to use up almond flour, coconut flour and vital wheat gluten from a brief experiment with Keto diet...I can do the low carb but NOT the high fat. So I can eat this stuff up anyway.
Last night I tried a bannock/skillet type bread with 2T of each of those and 2 big eggs, and a bit of baking soda and vinegar for extra leavening, a bit of strawberry powder (from my sister...gotta use it up!). It was bread like but dry as DUST by this morning. Coconut flour is a blackhole for moisture! Still, dipped in a thick lentil stew it was good enough. I will keep trying. I think if I make it runnier it could work as pancakes.

'Tis the season (for diets and cold weather!)

Lower Sugar Hot Cocoa Mix
1⅓ c. Splenda
1 c. powdered milk
1 c. powdered coffee creamer
¾ c. unsweetened cocoa powder
Stir to blend. Store in tightly covered jar. Add ¼ cup mix to 1 cup hot water, or to taste. Makes about 4 cups mix.

For Spiced Cocoa Mix, add 2 tsp ground cinnamon, ½ tsp ground cloves, and ½ tsp ground nutmeg to entire mix. Increase Splenda to 1½ cups.

Based on the recipe from Make Your Own Groceries cookbook. Replace Splenda with sugar for original, or make a hybrid version using half sugar and half Splenda.

Thanks CH!!

SD: I was making myself little mochas (with powdered coconut milk since I'm non-dairy) yesterday. Will do hot chocolate next.

Pretty easy, put it in a glass measuring cup and hit it with the stick blender. I made half a recipe with 1 egg. Go light on the mustard and use good oil. More than enough for several salads with half the recipe.

I am going to try the carrots! I have almost all the ingredients and think my good olive oil will work instead of butter.
