I read Joyce's post, shared about how she bakes for many events way ahead
Then I was thinking, wow...I am exactly totally opposite
Almost everytime. almost all bakes for all events I participate, I did last minute, if not late wew....
I guess my time management need some room of improvement LOL
Joyce, I sincerely admire you post all your bakes in time! Seriously! :)
I find it's rather tough to manage because my baking time is limited to once or the most twice a week, it's a kind of agreement in the family
I used to bake very often, at one point it was close to daily thing, but after sometime DH suggested not to bake too often
In fact, it's not only him, but also my mum suggested the same thing
So then came the once to twice a week bakes in the agenda
The main and only reason is health, both of them were not so comfortable in eating sweet treats in daily basis, which I sincerely agree
It's impossible to make and not consuming it, especially knowing that my family loves eating LOL
So, my baking days now is only Saturday and/or Sunday, and one more time on midweek, but even on that one more midweek, it's preferably to bake something not so sinful, such as buns or savoury snack
As robotic as it sounds, the schedule is a good arrangement for me and my family, and for me in particular - good for my waistline LOL
The down side is, it's not easy to arrange the time for me to bake to be in accordance with the dates of submission for the events
Fortunately there are not only a day to submit, but many days, so even though a little late, but so far still in time :)
What makes me more determined to go ahead with the arrangement... after my last week's health screen showed my bad cholesterol level was not so good, 3 points higher than normal wew..... Better take care... Luckily the rest was good, particularly my good cholesterol, it's higher than recommended, which is good :)
I was wondering how come the good cholesterol can't overwrite my bad cholesterol LOL
Having said all that, it doesn't mean I will not participate in those events
How to? I love it too much! LOL
Now for this bake... I actually had my 4 ingredients bake on Saturday for Mother's day, but it's too early to post for the Bake Along event, so I had my mid week bake today hehehe...
I wish I could make the scrolls in all even sizes hehehe....
It's not some sweet treats I baked today, not because I avoided it, but I was simply drooling when I saw this recipe at 4ingredients website
Combine the 4 ingredients together and nobody can say no to this little snack :)
And true enough, this is really yummy, and so simple to make, too
Crisp and tasty... delicious!
Here's the recipe...
What you need:
1 pastry sheet (I used Pampas and I flattened with rolling pin)
Prego pasta sauce
small diced back bacon
grated parmesan cheese
- Preheat oven to 180degC
- Put the flattened sheet on lightly floured surface
- Spread sauce, sprinkle bacon, followed by cheese
- Roll the sheet away from you like when making swissroll
- Cut into thick slices (around 3cm)
- Arrange on lined pan, and bake for 20-30 minutes (depends on how thick is the cut) til golden brown
- Remove from the pan and let cool
- Keep in airtight container to keep them crisp
