Least Favourite

To keep it real, we’re going to let you know our least favourites. In both of these cases, we each had one sip of these and poured the rest down the drain :(

Danielle – Toasted Oat Smoothie / Robyn – Pineapple Malt Milkshake

Forever Recipes

There’s a handful of recipes that both of us have made from the book, and keep coming back to over and over again. I’m calling these forever recipes, because I know they’ll be on heavy rotation for years to come!

1. Cheddar, Chive & Jalapeno Biscuits – both Dani and I have made these multiple times. They go well with chili and stew, and make a great vehicle for a breakfast sandwich with a fried egg and turkey bacon! They freeze well, so you can make the whole batch and store them in the freezer.

2. Chocolate Cookies & Cream Pudding – we both LOVE this. Danielle has made it two or three times too.

3. Simple Vanilla Cupcakes – everyone needs a go-to vanilla cupcake recipe, and this can be yours. The recipe makes an even dozen, but is easily halved or doubled depending on your baking project

Still to Bake

There are few things that Danielle made that I still want to make, and vice versa, here they are:

Danielle: Honey Whole Wheat Pound Cake, Peach Cobbler Muffins

Robyn: Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate & Salty Peanut Butter Ice Cream, Banana Rum Cake with Brown Butter Frosting,  Cream Cheese Pound Cake, Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies

Well that’s it everybody! Thanks for reading and thanks to all our family, friends and co-workers for eating all this stuff. We hear Joy’s working on her second book, so we’ll see how we feel about doing this all again when that one comes out!
