Mom's Baking Endeavors...

Yup, it's official...Mom's gone crazy with baking! Just this weekend, she baked an apple pie, a lemon meringue pie and some pineapple cookies for Kenji and me. o.O" It's lucky we have neighbors to give away some of the treats...otherwise, I don't know how we will finish them off! I certainly hope this 'phase' won't wear off too soon, coz I really enjoyed the home made treats, but it's a bit much, don't you agree? *wink*

Mom didn't manage to take photos of the apple pie she made (she only remembered after the pie was cut, divided and given away...*rolls eyes*). But Grampa loved the pie! Mom got the recipe here: Apple Pie Recipe.
Mom's version wasn't as nice as the ones in the photos of course, but the recipe was lovely!

Here are some photos of the other treats she baked over the weekend:

This recipe is called Howl 'In Hula name right? Heh! It's actually pineapple cookies: not too sweet, but with a hint of pineapple in it. Lovely! Recipe here: Howl 'In Hula Cookies Recipe

Even the humans like it, especially Rachel...she couldn't sneak enough of it! *grins* Mom likes that a lot of these recipes are tasty enough for humans too, and doesn't contain sugar!

This one's a lemon meringue pie...right before it got taken out of the oven (Sorry for the slightly crooked angle..Mom doesn't know how to take photos)

The finished product! Gramma said the meringue was not brown enough (the recipe is from Gramma...she found it in a magazine. Mom said her version of it was SOOOO yummy, she wanted to try it out herself), but not bad for a first try. *grins*

After cutting it up...I never got a taste of this, coz Mom said it's too sweet for us, but she said her crust was not as good as Gramma's. Something about a bit too much water put in...*shrugs* Oh well, practice makes perfect, eh?

The oven that Mom got is a breadmaker too...she just puts in the ingredients and sets the proper settings, and voila! Bread comes out of it! This is a whole meal bread made with honey instead of sugar...*grins* I got to taste a little bit of the crust when Mom cut the bread...*licks lips*

That's it from me for now...I'll try to get Mom to lay off the baking for a bit and concentrate on MOI! Till then..

You are so lucky your mom cooks... our mom can preheat the oven and that is about it. Maybe this post will inspire her to make us some delicious goodies. No sugar has to be good for Jack's waist line!

Hi Scottie,
Your grandpa's tortoise sounds very pretty...does he know if it is a he or a she? Our tortoise, Mr. Tortuga, is a Saharan spur heeled tortoise. Eventually he will get to be 125 lbs. and will live over 100 years! But right now he is about 12" across and weighs about 3 lbs. I promise to post pictures just as soon as dad, I mean we, get the pen finished for him (hopefully this weekend!)

Momo and Pinot said...

Scottie, our mom's face was so close to her pc to see all the yummy photos and we were trying to sniff everything we saw. :)

A lemon meringue pie is our dad's favorite so mom bought it for his barkday. Geee She should have baked it just like your mom.

We hope your aunty enjoyed her study in Japan. Which part of Japan did she stay? Our mom says Dorayaki is very good. A Happi (happy) Coat looks good on you!
