Bread Machine Recipe & Pictures of the Girls.

The other day I took the girls to Goodwill because it was really hot and we were bored.  I found a new bread machine with wrapping still on it for $6! I used to have a bread maker, but Tyler wouldn’t eat the bread out of it because he didn’t like the way it was shaped.  Yes, seriously.  So I gave it away to an older lady who had arthritic hands and could no longer knead bread.  She was super appreciative so I didn’t...

Chicken pot pie…oh, bliss! 0

Chicken pot pie…oh, bliss!

20/365 We’re having a snow storm outside.  We’ve gotten 3 or 4 inches in the past three hours.  That’s a lot for Kentucky. Since it’s snowy and blustery out, we needed something warming for supper.  I decided to try to make chicken pot pie from scratch, partly because I’ve been wanting to try it and partly because we have all of the ingredients handy.  I’m not about to drag the girls out in the snow to go buy groceries! I’ve been...

Epic Nom and Flying Pekins.

I made some kind of unholy goodness for supper tonight. Pork chops covered in cream sauce with veggies. Even Tyler ate it, which is saying something.  I didn’t use a recipe, I just mixed together some stuff we had.  I took about two tablespoons of butter, plus a tiny bit extra, and melted it in my cast iron pot until it was bubbling.  Then I threw in chopped carrots, celery, and onion.  (You could also add garlic, but Tyler doesn’t like it.)  I simmered the vegetables until...

Frosty Treasures.

The weather man says it will snow tonight. So far, it’s raining. Nasty, cold, drizzling rain. Rosie is beside herself with excitement over snow coming. She desperately wants to make a snow angel and a snowman. I hope it actually does snow overnight, enough to for her to make a snowman for the first time! It seems like snow here is hit or miss. We either get a lot of snow or none at all. Rosie is also extremely excited about...

Simple, Delicious Berry Muffins.

These muffins are light and fluffy and delicious. They aren’t even very sweet, they’re just right. I’ve discovered the secret to making muffins is to not over mix them. You can’t use the electric mixer, just use a fork. Not a spoon, a fork. They take less than 10 minutes to mix up! Here is the recipe: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix together the following: 2 cups of flour 3/4 cup of sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 3 teaspoons baking...

Bread.

One of Rosie’s favorite frequent activities is to bake bread with me. Lately we’ve been making the bread from the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day cookbook. It’s so simple and delicious! It’s so easy, actually, that I am thinking of just getting rid of my bread machine. Absolutely all you have to do to make bread that looks exactly like what is on the cover of the book is to mix yeast, salt, and hot water for a second,...
