    Very cool! I’ve seen the #bakingday stuff around, but don’t think I’ll be joining. Something about being in school and having missed all of last week being sick. Maybe next time – especially if its on a weekend ;D. Or over a holiday break!

    Can’t wait to see what you make!

    @Lauren, Maybe they’ll let you take over the home-ec department one day. I’m sure you could teach them a thing or two.

    @Amy, I’m sure I could! In fact, I’m not in Foods class, as I wouldn’t be able to enjoy anything we’d make!

    Anyways, everything looks delicious! In terms of your cornbread – I find that when I make too many modifications, it tends to fail. I once made muffins where I switched the oats for quinoa flakes, the wheat flour for gf flours, the All-bran for a gf bud cereal, the whey protein for hemp protein and something else – they were green and very odd! They didn’t taste horrible, but the texture and everything was way way off!

    @Lauren, I’m laughing out loud! I learned that lesson the hard way, too. The only change I made was adding masa harina and it was just too soft.

    Have fun with all your baking! Sounds like a good amount of tasks to accomplish!

    @Alta, I thought I was taking it easy since it’s my first time…if I was honest I’d have to say I have a HUGE mental list that I wasn’t brave enough to put on-line. It’s the perfectionist in me.

    Ah hah! I wondered what baking day was all about. Perhaps I’ll join sometime. My mom just made me some cornbread (it’s a tradition) and I just turned it into stuffing. The post will be up this week sometime. It’ll be interesting to see the differences in our versions!

    @Kim, The Food Allergy Coach, I’m going to post my cornbread stuffing next week for Holiday Food Fest at Tasty Eats at Home. Someone e-mailed me and wanted a good cornbread recipe that would hold up for stuffing. So, that’s why mine is going up. Can’t wait to see the differences, too. I think that’s the best part of food blogging – learning together.

    This is a recipe I came up with last night. My husband loved it, and it’s gluten free.
    I called it “Mock Lasagna”.
    I used cooked hash browns(in Canada, M&M’s Brand which are low in salt, no cholesterol, and no gluten. They use non-hydrogenated canola oil)as my base. Cook in pyrex dish according to directions. Then add your favorite lasagna ingredients, top with your choice of cheese, and cook until bubbling at 375F.

    You sure had a busy baking day! Everything looks fantastic. It makes me want to buy a bread maker so I can bake some of that beautiful “normal” looking bread!!!

    Amy, I think your bread looks great! It did not sink much and that is very normal for gluten free bread! ;-) You did a great job! Most of my bread does sink slightly upon cooling, but it doesn’t affect the wonderful taste or texture. Enjoy it and be proud you made your own GF bread!

    @carrie, That’s good to hear, especially coming from you. I am still a little shocked that it came out so well. Thanks for your feedback…it helps so much when you’re trying to figure out a new gluten-free baking project.

    I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one who has flops that go directly into the trash. I am very interested in the moistness of the bread tomorrow. And wouldn’t a sandwich or a piece of toast be wonderful?

    So glad you joined in! And it’s really freezer cooking day, though the hashtag is probably here to stay.

    Don’t worry about your bread. Wheat bread in the bread machine does that, too. Looks just like what I make. ;)

    @FishMama@LifeasMOM, I have no idea how to freezer cook…but I’m going to attempt meatballs tomorrow. It’s been fun! So glad you organized everything.
