Freezer Biscuits are ideal for those times when you want something light but don’t want to cook. The dough is made and frozen for the future and then simply placed on a cookie sheet and cooked in the oven.
Easter Buns can’t be easier to make. Just throw the ingredients in your bread machine and follow a few simple steps and you have flavourful buns for your Easter treats. Enjoy with coffee, tea or Cranberry Iced Tea
1 cup almond milk
1 egg or 1 vegan egg
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup butter or vegan butter
3 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 1/4 tsp yeast (Bread machine or high activating)
1 cup raisins
Measure ingredients into the bread machine pan in the order listed omitting the raisins. Set on dough mode. At the signal add raisins.
When the dough is ready remove to a floured surface and cover with a bowl. Let rest 15 minutes.
Divide dough into 12. Toll each into a bun and place on a cookie sheet. Cover and let rise 45 minutes
Bake in a 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20 minutes or until the bun is golden brown.
Flavoured vinegars are great in salad dressings but can be pricey to buy. Fortunately they are easy to make but takes some preparation. Below I have listed recipes for Raspberry/Blueberry Vinegar, Sage Red Wine Vinegar and Thyme Basil Vinegar
1/2 cup mashed raspberries
1/2 cup mashed blueberries
White vinegar to fill a jar
Add fruit to jar and fill with vinegar. Cork and let stand for at least 1 week. Strain and use on salads or as a marinade. Can be sweetened by adding stevia to the finished vinegar. Continue reading Infused Vinegars→
My favourite apples are Spies. I like them in pies, crisp and just on their own. Occasionally, when I want to sweeten up the fruit I make this recipe of baked apples. Their sweet but tangy at the same time. Serve with coconut or whipped cream for an extra special treat.
I don’t often eat cereal for breakfast but when I do I tend to eat granola. This granola recipe includes coconut oil, honey and dried apricots. For a surprise cocoa nibs are added for a chocolatey kick. Enjoy morning granola for breakfast or on top of your favourite crumble.
