Using Up Holiday Baking Supplies

After indulging in all of the rich baked goodies during the holiday, we are ready to return to plainer, less fattening fair. I usually have a lot of ingredients left over. Rather than save them for future baking projects I incorporate them into our everyday meals.


Baking apples:

Make apple pie filling and use it to add to yogurt, ice cream, puddings, and cereals


  • 3 cups apple pieces
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • dash of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon water


Microwave for 10 minutes. Freeze or store in the fridge.

Miniature marshmallows:

  • Add to canned fruit cocktail


  • add to yogurt
  • add to fruit salad
  • add to cereals
  • add to rice pilaf
  • use in quick breads

Cream cheese:

  • thin with mayonnaise
  • add nuts and chopped green olives for a sandwich spread
  • or thin with fruit juice
  • add to fruit salads

My husband bought canned pumpkin for pies, but I made the cake roll instead (on Libby's can) DELICIOUS! It only uses 2/3 cup, so with a 20oz can you can make a lot! OR...use it as thickner in stew/soups and gravies!

My son was 9 months old, with no teeth yet, but loves squash. I don't like to buy jarred baby food so I fed him the pumpkin (froze it in ice cube trays and some in one cup increments for the cake!) One can equals 30 bucks of baby food, and it is 100 % all natural!
