Whisking Wednesdays #18


Welcome to Whisking Wednesdays! 

I can't believe it is almost October!  It is still in the high 80's daily here in Japan so it feels like Fall weather is never coming.  I'm thinking of starting to make some pumpkin recipes despite the weather very soon.  My baby girl is about to turn 4 and wants to go to school so very bad so this week has been filled with phone calls and tours of pre-schools for her.  It is amazing how eager they are to leave home, make friends, learn and jump into the world that we all wish we could get out of sometimes!  I hated school, I hated work but am thankful that I love what I do now, I love staying home and taking care of my babies everyday.  It is a privilege that not all mothers are able to do and I love my husband so much for making it possible.  Plus, that gives me plenty of time to get in the kitchen and bake up a storm almost every day which I too love!  Oh yeah, did I mention we are currently getting slammed with a tropical storm. 


Thank you all who participated in this week's Whisking Wednesdays and hope to see you back again this week!

Ahhh the brownie.  Brownies are so amazing and so versatile.  I love how many different ways you can make a brownie.  I've never met a brownie I didn't like!  This one looks particularly fudgy, chocolately and delicious! 

I love peaches and really didn't get my fill of them this Summer since I'm in Japan.  I've had blueberry buckles but never seen a peach one.  This looks awesome and I hope to find peaches eventually and make this, yum!

Not only do I love hiding vegetables in things for my kids I love seeing alternative ingredients used to make things we see every single day.  Things like spelt flour and rice flour aren't things you see everyday and I love experimenting with those types of ingredients for something healthier for my kids.  This recipe just really drew me in because it looks so healthy but also looks so much like an awesome dessert muffin!

  1. Thanks for hosting! I have linked up Hello Kitty Cookie Pops. Have a great week!

  2. Thank you so much for featuring my Chocolate Muffins! My kids have been clamoring for another batch, but the local zucchini around here is pretty sad-looking... I guess I'll have to think up a variation with some other winter vegetable :)

    Today I'm sharing three recipes: Sweet Potato French Toast (another hidden veggie trick!), Coconut Date Balls (an old family recipe), and Homemade Gnocchi (that happens to be gluten-free).

    Thanks again!!
