My cooking triumphs
Making a ‘cheese cake’ out of tofu – My husband’s family gobbled it up thinking it was an actual cheese cake ....I proudly told them that it was tofu when they were almost done their piece. Some of them stoped eating it for a minute in disbelief before continuing.

Olive Oil Cranberry Bundt Cake
This turned out great...but, I added 2.5 cups of chopped cranberries and only 1.5 cups sugar Will try next time to reduce the olive oil in half and sub in some mashed avocado to replace it. Spice amount as per recipe gave it a great taste and holiday scent.

Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Butter Frosting
This is the cake I made for my son's birthday and it was a huge hit. I wanted a 13x9 cake and I wanted it at least 4inches tall, so I doubled the recipe for the cake part. I made just one recipe worth of the lemon filling and that covered two of my layers. For the middle layer, I used a pomegranate/berry conserve I had in the fridge. It was a great add as it was very complimentary to the lemon filling and it added a nice hint of colour in the middle. I also needed about 1.5 recipe worth of icing to cover the cake.

Banana Tortilla Snacks
Made this for my kids this evening and it has a huge hit. I made it with almond butter, a few chocolate chips, banana, a tiny bit of honey and a few raisins. I used a soft whole wheat tortilla and put it in the toaster oven to melt the chocolate and heat up the almond butter. This is great when your kids are asking for a treat. I think I may try to make an adult version of this with a hint of spiced rum mixed in with sliced bananas.
