See what the boys put me up to!

Ok, ok. For the record I didn’t have my first beer until my order was finished! I don’t drink on the job. :)

Unlike some people

My baking was a success today! Thank goodness. If I had another disaster like yesterday I would not have been a happy camper.

First, I made my Gluten free and Vegan Flax + Sesame Seed Crackers. These are fun to make and I am going to really expand my cracker line. I LOVE making them!

Here was the process:

I made fresh dill + Rosemary, Italian Flax, and Flax + Sesame flavours:

I loved them all and wanted to keep them for myself!

I loved the dill and rosemary! Next time I am going to sprinkle them with coarse sea salt.

Next up was my healthy cookies:

German Dark Chocolate and oh so good:

I made the following flavours:

  • Dark Chocolate Chunk
  • Vegan carob chip
  • Raisin + walnut
  • Vegan Raisin + walnut + carob chip
  • German White Chocolate Chunk
  • German white + dark chocolate chunk

Eric and I split one of the raisin walnut cookies and it was delicious! It is amazing that they are vegan and low fat!

After ward I packed up the order and got it ready to go.

I did some paper work for the bakery and worked on Shop 4 a Cause. Then I headed out to the grocery store to pick up some dinner stuff.

Got carbs?

Holy Dempsters! Stay tuned for the Healthy Way pro cardio squares review tomorrow!

I forgot to take a picture of everything else, but I picked up lean ground beef for the boy’s burgers. I am BBQ’ing tonight! I love BBQ’ing, it is so summery. And it is another sunny and gorgeous day so I will get some nice fresh air. I am going to BBQ a veggie burger for myself and I already have the leftover fresh dill planned for a special sauce.

Untitled-51 April 29th: Squats!! If you are like me, you hate squats, but you can’t deny that they work! I find they are great for toning the butt after a long winter. :) Yup, you guessed it- 3 sets of squats.

Today was an off day for exercise, so I also threw in some side planks in there- one on each side for 45-50 seconds.

See you tomorrow AM for the first Shop 4 a Cause teaser (oh, it’s GOOD!) as well as the details for the Project Glow Challenge!

Have a lovely night!

What do you use instead of butter in your cookies? I want to start making some vegan cookies as well but don’t know what to replace the butter with! Thanks. :)
