This orange sauce was just okay, even with chili crisp. Moving on up! #Mtcookbook

Tamra I‘m putting this book in the donate pile. (Yes, I have a pile.) 😆 After thumbing through it, the recipes in general are rather bland. 2mo

#Mtcookbook adventure! Carrot bread - counts as a vegetable serving, right? 😉

Definitely yummy and not at all too sweet. Recipe indicates raisins are optional, but I wouldn‘t omit because the only sugar comes from 1/2 cup maple syrup & apple sauce.

The tagged cookbook is vegetarian and good one if you like limited ingredient, simple recipes. I need more spice & flavors in general, but that‘s easy to adjust on my end.

IndoorDame Looks delicious!!! 3mo
Tamra @IndoorDame my kids will want more sugar in it, but they don‘t need it! 3mo
IndoorDame @Tamra haha, I‘m always cutting down the sugar in cookbook sweets recipes 3mo
