Tip: Saving Money On Yeast

I make all of my bread homemade. About a month into making this commitment, it occurred to me that yeast, the way I was purchasing it, isn’t cheap. On sale, it seems like I could find the three-envelops of yeast for about $1.10. One loaf of bread, one batch of buns, one patch of pita bread, two pizza doughs — all of those take one envelope of yeast.I make all of my bread homemade.

Wonderful Whole Wheat Sopapillas

I have a good friend who asked me to make whole wheat sopapillas, so I’ve been researching recipes. I finally came up with one that will please all of us “real food” minded mamas. Sopapilla means “little pillow” and can be used in a savory dish much like a tortilla or a pita bread. For this dish, I used them as a breakfast bread and drizzled them with honey. They were beyond amazing. A wonderful breakfast to kick of a Cinco de Mayo celebration.

Moroccan Menu on the Fly

I had some friends over for dinner last night. I’m not as good at entertaining people as my husband is. I’m much better at cooking and serving a meal while I listen to him entertaining and interacting with people (heh). But cooking for people is what I love to do, and even though he’s gone, he encourages me to still have people over.
