Pantry Challenge Update

So I started the pantry challenge this week and so far we have been going strong making some yummy dishes.  Last night was our eat out night we went to Angeleno’s for veggie pizza, salad and Badger Mountain Organic Reisling.

I was sent this great baking book a little while back and have been baking a ton from it.  I made the dinner biscuits for Thanksgiving and just this week I made the raspberry bars and the cinnamon bread.  All the recipes in this book are dairy, egg and nut free and although it is not officially vegan it just happens to all be vegan.  

I love how this book has photographs for the all the recipes it makes baking easier when you know what the final result should look like.  I honestly am not the greatest baker it’s more my husbands forte but with this book I seem to be able to do a great job baking anything (well that’s in it).
