Classic White Bread

OH that smell, nothing can beat the smell of fresh baked anything! Bread is one of those things that is especially pungent and amazing when it hits your nose. I love baking bread now, when I first started I have to admit I was scared and intimidated. Lets be honest there is a chemistry and an order to the way bread is made.

The Best Snack Granola Ever!

The Best Snack Granola Ever!

This Granola is the best I have ever made! It is perfect for snacking on or eating with yogurt. I love making my own granola. The best thing about homemade anything is that you know exactly what is going into it. I explain in my cereal granola blog all about sugar, this recipe is no different when it comes to that.

Ok I love enchiladas they seriously are one of my favorite food I think what makes them so amazing is the sauce. Well when you are married to a wonderful man like mine who suffers from "I can't hardly eat any kind of food" you are forced to make substitutions.

I grew up eating sugary cereal, all the big name brands went into my belly. I remember being a kid and believing that eating cookies for breakfast was a perfectly normal event. On the flip side I also remember coming down from my sugar high and becoming super lethargic and tired.

Vegan Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Vegan Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Bread, made for thousands of years has now become a mystery to a lot of people in first world countries. I have finally taken the time to learn how to create this ancient form of sustenance not because it is the cool thing to do, not even because it is the healthy thing to do but, because being 'poor' drove me to it. That's right my husband and I were thinking of ways to save money and one small way to do that is to make our own bread.
