Its really fun having a husband who enjoys cooking almost as much as I do. Of course Nate usually does the “outdoor” cooking, you know grilling, anything over the camp fire and with our smoker. We actually do a lot of cooking indoors together as well, depending on what we’re making, but pizza, pasta, tacos, […]
Mom writer here. I know you haven’t seen much of me lately. Perhaps I have been too busy, too distracted, too lazy or too uninspired. But today I have a wonderful muffin recipe for you.
I use Google Calendar to organize my life. I have a calendar for my day to day life. I have a calendar for the work events I have to be at. I have a meal plan calendar. I have calendars from the executives that I work with at work. I have a blog post calendar. […]
The 23rd of February was National Banana Bread day. Although I ended up not having time to make this scrumptious bread until the next day, I still wanted to honor the “holiday” and was pleased to find some frozen bananas in my freezer. For this recipe I started with my basic banana bread recipe, with […]
Last Sunday, I just had the need to create something. Do you ever need to do that? When it grabs hold of you, you feel unsettled until you can create. That is how I felt last week and so I was grateful for the down time Sunday afternoon that allow me to make and bake […]
I don’t have any good stories to share that relate to chocolate zucchini bread. So we’ll just get on to this delicious recipe. Yum! I got this yummy recipe from Nate’s aunt from her mom. She makes it as a cake, but I think bread is cuter. The only thing I added extra to the […]
Does putting yourself in a new situation make you uncomfortable. It certainly does for me. We have a wonderful market here in town that would be considered the Latin Market. Craig had encouraged me to go shopping there but it was new, it was different and I wasn’t sure about it. Once I went I […]
Having a vegetable garden is pretty awesome. I say “vegetable” garden because we also planted strawberries, raspberries and blueberries that have been completely pathetic. We got maybe 10 strawberries each about the size of my pinky nail, no raspberries, no blueberries. I’m hoping the plants come back next year, but they look about 90 percent […]
So in an effort to eat more healthy, I figured making a bread-like dessert would be much more healthy than a cookie or cake-like one. I have no idea if that is actually correct, but because there is fruit in this, you can believe that its better for you. I just hope that they don’t […]
We have two plum trees growing in our front yard. One is a Satsuma plum and the other is a Santa Rosa plum. The fruit on the Satsuma is our favorite but it needs a pollenizer and the Santa Rosa plum is an excellent choice for that. When you plant plums they can be quite […]
Have I told you in my church I work with young ladies ages 12 and 13? Every week we have a nightly activity; either with other young women 14-18 and/or other young men ages 12-18 or just our small group. These activities all should be planned and directed by the young women themselves with guidance […]
I don’t really know what to call this bread, except for delicious. I’m no expert on different types of bread, so based on my description, pictures, and you making this, please tell me what kind of bread you think it is? The recipe I got it from was a “french bread” recipe, however despite the […]
Remember a few weeks ago when I said we weren’t going to buy bread from the store anymore, I was just going to make my homemade loaves every Sunday? Well, a couple weeks ago I decided to make one of the loaves into cinnamon swirl bread. Which, let me say turned out AMAZING. It was […]
We have been eating tons of carbs this week. And not so many fruits and vegetables. But don’t be haters. Carbs are filling and delicious too. So do I have negative points in your book now? Well, will it help if I tell you that I made homemade bread last Sunday? So, at least we’re not getting all […]
Oh, how I love a good banana bread. This one just took it to the next level. I combined two recipes taking the best of each part and made one.
This bread is easy but does have a lot of down time so plan on from start to finish 3 1/2 hours. Once you have made the first loaf you can keep the dough in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks and take out only what you need to bake a new loaf of bread.
