I love getting the soup-in-a-bread-bowl when we go to Panera, and on Soup-er Bowl Sunday, decided to make soup with HOMEMADE BREAD BOWLS. This recipe is so easy! And you don't have to have a stand mixer-- I just stirred it by hand... All you need is a little waiting time while the dough rises. Note: I used bread flour instead of all-purpose the first few times, then tried it with 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 bread flour, both delicious! This is the recipe I followed.The dough also makes great rolls, 8-12 depending on the size you want. To go with the bread, I made Cheesy Southwestern Chicken Tortilla Soup, a new favorite-- although we used ground beef and water instead of chicken and chicken broth. Try it--you'll like it! :)
Valentine treats for my tweet-E! I received some donut and donut hole pans from one of my beautiful sister-in-laws for Christmas, and have been wanting to try them out! I found these recipes online and oooooooh, what a treat they are! I found this super-easy Cake Mix Donutsrecipe HERE, and the Best Chocolate Frosting recipe HERE. (My husband's a big fan of peanut butter-cups, so instead of 1 Cup butter, I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup peanut butter. It's our new favorite frosting-- Wish I'd tried this sooner!)
I had some leftover sweet potatos in my fridge when this recipe arrived in my inbox. Yowsa! Kathy's look better than mine, but these were fun to make and delicious! Click on this link for the recipe. (I used half whole wheat / half all purpose flour)
Do you like raspberries, and cream cheese, and coffee cake? I DO! That's why I tried this recipe from Allie at Through Her Looking Glass.It was a real treat! Check out the recipe, and while you're at it, browse Allie's website... Her writing, stories, photographs, thoughts, and recipes are pretty amazing! I bet you'll find something that will bless you and touch your heart... I always do!
I didn't know there was such a day, until this morning when I received this recipe in my inbox: Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake (Wowza!) Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorites, and I made a batch of these (below) last week: Chocolate Chip Tea Cookies I love this recipe because it's uber-simple (six ingredients --no eggs), delicious, fast and easy, especially if you have a small cookie scoop. And they freeze well! Try it!
