New Breakfast Food Find Review

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!!!!

image

Usually, I like to make everything from scratch.  But there are times when I just want and need it to come already prepared.

With my family coming into town, this was one of those times.  Now the challenge is whether or not I can find one with minimal to no chemicals. My family eats a predominantly organic diet but my visiting family does not.  So I had to find something that meets the needs of everyone in one box.

I decided to check Target and see if they had a great quality pancake mix.  It just so happened that they had a new product on the shelves. Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk & Honey Pancake/Waffle Mix.  I check out the ingredients and into the cart it went. (This post is not sponsored just a new find.) For more information on this company click here.

Saturday morning rolls around and it was time to test out the new mix.  It was a hit.  It taste, perfect using it as the box instructs.  On Sunday, I decided to jazz it up a bit with some Organic Vanilla Extract and milk which made it even better.  My family absolutely love the mix, so I had to share my new find with all of you.

Have any of you ever tried this brand or do you have any recommendations of any other brands?????

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.

Whole Wheat Buttermilk Style Biscuits

Hello everyone,

So it was a lovely Saturday morning. I got to sleep in a bit…..thanks to my kids sleeping in a bit!!!! Which put me in the mood to try something slightly different for breakfast. Nothing major but just gradually adding a tiny bit of a healthier option. I decided to try making biscuits using Organic Whole Wheat Flour. To my surprise they were actually really good. The kid’s enjoyed there’s with a little homemade strawberry jam and for my chocoholic…..A semi-sweet chocolate sauce.  Since it was a success. …I must share….so let’s start baking.

image

Ingredients:

1 C. Organic Whole Wheat Flour

3/4 C. Organic Unbleached White Flour

2 tsp. Baking Powder

1/2 tsp. Baking Soda

1/2 tsp Sea Salt

4 TBS. Unsalted Butter (divided 3 TBS cut into cubes and 1 TBS. set aside for later use.)

1 C. Plain Unsweetned Almond Milk

1 TBS. White Distilled Vinegar

Instructions:

In a food processor or large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and pulse or whisk to blend.

Add the butter to the flour mixture; pulse a few times if using a food processor, or use pastry cutter or a fork to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles course crumbs.

In a measuring cup add Almond Milk and vinegar, mix to evenly incorporate. Add the milk mixture and pulse for 30 seconds or stir just until a moist dough forms. Don’t over mix.

If using a food proccesor transfer to a bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and freeze for 10 minutes or refrigerate for 30 minutes .

Turn the dough out onto a generously floured work surface and with floured hands knead gently 6 to 8 times until smooth. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough about 1/2 inch thick and use a 2 1/2 in round biscuit cutter or cup to cut out biscuits. Gather scraps and roll out to make additional biscuits.

Place the biscuits about 1 inch apart on a parchment lined baking sheet. Melt the 1 TBS of butter we set aside and brush the butter on top of each biscuit. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden.

Pumpkin Waffles

Yesterday was grocery shopping day.  The stores that I love are Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and Wegmans.  So at TJ’s I came across a new item. Which the store clerk said, just came in the night before. So I dropped 2 of them into the shopping cart. Hoping they will taste delishhhh.

image

I tried them this morning and I’m in “LOVE” They have the perfect amount of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon flavor without being over powering…..so glad that I gave them a try and that they taste terrific.  TJ’s always has something new and delicious to try. It’s the one store where the list just goes out the window….lol.

Enjoy & Until Next Time,

Sewloveable 😀
