Oats & Honey Bread: No Knead Method

Oats & Honey Bread: No Knead Method by Nanette

This, so far, is my favorite bread. I adore the Rustic loaf especially with sesame seeds, but this.... This is an everyday bread. It's softer inside but still crusty. The honey adds a kiss of sweetness. A bit more honey and a scant T of cinnamon and it becomes more a dessert bread. Just as it is, I eat this as dessert with butter…

Cinnamon Raisin Bread: No Need To Knead by Nanette

Keeping my promise. Here's the recipe for Cinnamon Raisin Bread. And it's wonderful. It isn't overly sugary....the raisins add just the right touch of sweetness. If you have a sweet tooth, certainly add a bit more brown sugar. Please use fresh ingredients. I think my next loaf will have golden raisins or cranraisins. After the initial…

Cold beer and those few hours becomes an experience.Within that experience are the memories.It takes me back to the times we spent in Florida with my sister, Tess, and her family.

Pumpkin Pierogies In Cream Sauce

Pumpkin Pierogies In Cream Sauce by Nanette

Our community has a cooking demo class each month. Chef Renee chose Pumpkin Pierogies to celebrate Autumn. Okay, so it's still 90 degrees in Florida, but just the thought of pumpkins and gourds makes me feel cooler. This is not a difficult recipe. If you don't have the desire to make your own dough....use pre-made wonton or empanada…
