I just can’t bring myself to awkwardly fit “semi” into the title right now.

I know I already made a corndog thing, but it’s getting harder to come up with ideas, and also I really wanted chili and cornbread, so I made some spelt cornmeal biscuits and plopped a veggiedog and some Amy’s chili down in the middle. This was pretty perfect for the GT Xpress. It was definitely the type of meal they had in mind when making this thing: canned chili, packaged hotdogs and cornbread. Of course, I made the bread from scratch not from a mix or a pop ‘n fresh pack, but what else is a vegan supposed to do?

Here they are baking:

And here’s one all plated up. I sort of broke it when taking it out, but they actually stayed together really well .

My titles are getting worse and worse! I made these Banana Flapjacks for dinner tonight. They are a tester recipe from Isa’s forthcoming brunch book. I haven’t had a banana pancake in a while, and it was just the ticket after a long day. I’d had some bananas over ripening in the fridge for a few days so it was the perfect chance to use them up and eat something super yummy for dinner.

I used about 1/3 cup of batter per well and that seemed to be perfect. They puffed up right to the top. I should have sprayed the wells because they got a little stuck and I had to sort of maneuver them out of there. That’s why they look kind of messed up.  Also, there’s some thing kind of freaky about half circle pancakes.  Not natural.

The smokey tempeh on the side was a great salty side dish and tasted great with the maple syrup that oozed onto it.

I’m looking forward to trying more pancake and general breakfast recipes in here!

I was craving chocolate chip cookies, so I made up a small batch of whole wheat cookie dough and popped it in the GT Xpress. I probably should have used a recipe rather than just winging it because these turned out a little dry. I will try this again soon. They looked totally perfect though!
