I was able to review this cookbook and I decided to make us the Sweet and Sour Chicken over Rice Noodles. You know me and my noodles! I was a little scared as to how the recipe would taste with the pineapple and coconut milk in it but surprisingly it was really good and my family loved it!! I wouldn't mind some right now. The chicken is cooked in the pineapple juice making it so super tender.




I also made these Pumpkin Spice Muffins. These are gluten free, egg free and could be dairy free. I added my own pecan chocolate chip crumb topping to these for a little added something. 



but nowhere in the recipe does it say when to add the milk!?? I added it in with the wet ingredients.

a delicious after school treat for my kiddos

Finally, I made the Chocolate Pudding.

I made this late at night after work because I wanted it to be set for the next day (photos). Don;t worry it's an easy recipe and takes just minutes. It's a stove top recipe so no need to wake the family with a mixer. The only thing I have to say about this recipe is yet again, the directions are misleading. It tells me to add hot water to the hot cocoa and sugar, but in the ingredients list it only lists 1/4 cup water, divided. It does not tell me I need to use half hot water and half cold water. It could have read 2 tbl hot water, 2 tbl cold water. Anyways, this came out great and if you happen to have a dark cocoa powder, I'd use that. Mine was the regular Hershey's cocoa and I felt it needed more flavor of a dark chocolate and maybe a little more vanilla. And double this, this would never feed my family of five like it says lol. 

delish!!
