Jakesprinter’s topic this Sunday is Simplicity. With the difficult economic conditions in the world the last couple of years, many people are adopting simpler lifestyles and going back to simpler foods.
My husband is a great cook and over the last couple of years he has started making more things from scratch such as spaghetti sauce and breads. Here is a photo of his Harvest bread, which has raisins and dried cranberries. He uses his Le Creuset to give it the boule shape. It is simple to make because it is a no-knead bread; the dough sits for 20 hours and rises on its own without kneading. It is delicious!
Last year I tried making English muffins from scratch. They weren’t uniform, but they looked and tasted like English muffins. Unfortunately, they took too much time and effort. I discovered that in this case it wasn’t worth it because our local grocery store has English muffins 3 for $1.00 on Wacky Wednesdays!
