Christmas Baking Planning

I have a confession to make: I barely baked last Christmas at all. I did gifts for Scott’s teacher, and that’s about it.
This year, my intention is to do my mammoth baking that I’ve enjoyed in the past. I want to make cookies and candies and breads and just have a blast doing it. But, to incorporate something like that into my schedule, it takes some planning and some time. With just three weeks until Christmas, and only two full weeks of school left, it’s time to get to planning!
I love giving my friends delicious homemade treats as a Christmas gift. I used to do it while I worked full time, and would spend and entire Saturday and most of a Sunday baking and cooking and cleaning and mixing. Over the years, I’ve learned how to space the work out so that it’s not so frantic and exhausting.

Peachy Overnight French Toast

I made this to take to church for breakfast for my Sunday School class. It was really good, and required no syrup for serving. I made it the evening before, popped it into the oven 30 minutes before we had to leave for church, and was able to serve it still warm to my class. I did not take any pictures of the process and I apologize for that. But, the recipe was too good not to share.

Creamy Cheesy Broccoli Soup

Kaylee ate a broccoli cheese soup in a bread bowl at Panera Bread one time and then proceeded to beg and beg me to make some. I made my Whole Wheat Bread Bowls, then found a couple of recipes for broccoli cheese soup and combined them. At the end, I blended the entire soup, but we didn’t like the consistency. Doing it again, I’d maybe blend half of it and leave the rest chunky.

Whole Wheat Pull Apart Yeast Rolls

When I first read this recipe, I didn’t understand what the instructions meant. Once I started performing the actions, they made perfect sense. I’m glad I take pictures, because I’d probably explain the process to you in circles! These rolls were light and wonderful – a perfect compliment to our Thanksgiving feast – or any feast for that matter!

Tip: The Importance of Measuring

Monday, as I was baking for the week and making both kinds of bread, I pulled out my worn recipes and followed them, carefully, step-by-step. As I did this, I was reminded of something that an ex-inlaw once said to me. She said that I wasn’t a real cook because I measured. She said that real cooks don’t have to measure.

Egg-in-a-Hole

This is one of my all time favorite breakfasts. I love fried eggs cooked medium, and I love soaking up the yolk with toast. This meal just puts it all together for me. The kids love it because it’s “fun”.

Harvest Bread: a recipe for children

I was looking around online the other day to find something uniquely Canadian to post about Thanksgiving. Since Canadian Thanksgiving is actually a celebration of harvest and has nothing to do with pilgrims and the new world, what I found referenced over and over again was Harvest Bread.
