The last few months of 2009 were spent with me analyzing our food choices. I've always cooked mostly from scratch, but I'd buy some convenience foods like cereal and the occasional Pop-Tarts. No more!
My husband has been quite supportive, except when I pass by the ice cream aisle in the grocery store. The children don't mind eating organic, but I wasn't about to pay $5 for organic toaster pastries, so I decided to make my own.
I found a recipe in The King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion, and gave it a whirl yesterday afternoon. The result? Perfection!
They were time consuming, but I only ever bought Pop-Tarts about 3 times a year, and the effort was well worth knowing exactly what went into them. Our New Year's Day started off with some fun, but healthier food. That feels like a good beginning to me!
