I haven't made a post for a while so I thought I better let you in on what I'm up to. I decided to try some Capella flavor drops. They had a deal of 5 samples for $19, which I guess is no longer up there, but I have seen them mentioned on other blogs so figured I'd give them a try. Besides, I've been dreaming about things with graham crackers lately. I wouldn't say craving... but dreaming about it, waking up in the middle of the night with recipes coming into my head with ways of using that flavor. So those sleepless nights led me to search for a flavor for graham crackers. I really wanted that flavor.
Well, I'm a bit unusual with my food combinations at times, I admit, at least I've been told. I don't think so, I think they're great. So the flavor of graham cracker, peanut butter, and bacon came into my noggin today as I was deciding what to have for lunch.
The bread isn't the color of graham cracker, but the flavor drops did the trick. I would use more drops next time, however. I'm still learning how many drops it takes to get the perfect flavor. The bread is my coconut microwave bread recipe
and I just added 5 drops of graham cracker flavor and 2 packets of Truvia to the mix. I think next time I'll add a couple more drops, and some cinnamon, but I really enjoyed the flavor mix of graham, bacon, and peanut butter. It tasted like graham cracker bread.
Now I'm dreaming of Smore's. I really want to make Smore's! I also have marshmallow flavor drops, and a recipe for low carb marshmallow cream, so that's next on my agenda. I'm thinking Smore's pizza, Smore's pie, Smores cookies... whatever... just Smore's.
So that's what I've been up to, besides just hangin' with my retired husband and dealing with stuff life brings. School's out. I have a summer ahead of me.
