- I'm not gonna lie, it wasn't easy by any means. Do you know how much sugar is in... everything! Seriously, trying to find something for breakfast was the worst. Every kind of cereal we have, even the whole grain, tastes like card board stuff I normally eat because I think its better for me has it in the ingredients list! So I ended up with plain oatmeal with skim milk, but then it curdled...what?! How did that happen? so it went into the trash. Next up pineapple... there is a sweet fix right there! Delicious but so not filling.... no I ended up munching on some dry bran... yum :( I did pretty good though. My sister and her kids were coming over for awhile so I made them some cookies and didn't even eat one! yay me :) Then tonight again I made cookies and guess what I didn't do.... not have a cookie that's what! woo me! But I must confess... I had meatloaf, my meatloaf and my meatloaf has a brown sugar and ketchup glaze... yum! I wasn't even thinking about the no sugar thing at the time, granted my piece was pretty tiny but still it was sugar so it counts :( gosh I didn't even make it past day 1 haha oh well...tomorrow is another day with no mistakes in it. I love Anne of Green Gables <3

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
First stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons of the cocoa, and 3/4 cup of the white sugar. Reserve the remaining cocoa and sugar.

Over Labor Day weekend my family and I went on a little vacation to Vermont. My husband is from there and still has a lot of family that still live in Vermont, so we stayed with his Grandparents. They are seriously the sweetest folks, so funny and loving. Grampy sent me home with some goodies from the garden ( yum!) Lots and lots of tomatoes and red and green peppers. He also gave me a 25 pound bag of bread flour because I love to bake :) See I told you, SO loving.
