This Sunday I had in mind that I would finish a lot of the stuff in refrigerator, like ½ can of cranberries and ½ can of crushed pineapple. So, in an effort to not let the food spoil; I was never a fan of it and specially now with the tough economic times, I hate to see any food go to waste, I decided to bake some yummy desserts and have it for the week. And, to add to it, I also wanted to bake some nice homemade wheat bread.

So, I got my baking gadgets and started my adventure. First, was the wheat bread; just because while it set I was able to work on the pineapple cupcakes. Then, secondly, I worked on the cranberry chocolate chip bar. The recipe was from the can of cranberry and the pineapple cupcake was this medium size pink cupcake recipe book I have. I added a few more things like roasted coconut flakes and added moist with condensed milk glaze.

All I can say is that it all turned out delicious, again! I am so proud of myself; I was never interested in any kitchen activities until about 2 years ago. So, it’s true that people can really change! Baking became one of my favorite hobbies. Also, I have to say that my husband inspired me to start learning about cooking as well. Now, he can’t complain even if he gets fat LOL!!!

This weekend I made a delicious moist mango coconut bread from a book my husband and I picked you in our last trip to the Keys. The bread is so yummy and easy to make; btw I used walnuts. It’s almost like a banana nut bread but more mist. It got great compliments – so, here is a picture and the recipe. Enjoy!
