IMG_1929I know that there are thousands of bread recipes.  But  I love this recipe, it is quick easy and so far fail proof.  I have made it hundreds of times and they always turn out,  so in my book it is a keeper! I also like it because you do not have to knead the dough.  I have a lot of problems with pain in my wrists, so it works best for me.  My girls and I love cooking together, some times it would be faster or less messy without their help…. but I feel it is best to let them help while they are still eager to learn.

In large bowl add

  • 2 cups warm water ( if it is too hot or too cold…you will kill the yeast.  So make sure it is warm)
  • 2 TBS yeast
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Give it a few minutes in the bowl, to make sure your yeast is working.

Then add:

  • 3 eggs whipped lightly
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Sometimes I add 1/2 cup of apple sauce to make them extra moist, in place of part of the butter.

Mix well….

IMG_1903

Start to whisk in the flour one cup at a time ( for a total of 6 cups) you will also need 1/2- 1 cup  when you shape the rolls.

IMG_1906

You will need to switch over to a spoon to mix with,  on about cup 4 of flour.

IMG_1910

Dough WILL be sticky, scrap down the sides of the bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a towel…I use both.

IMG_1912

Set aside in a warm place, (like a sunny window seat) and allow to raise.  Till doubled in size. ( if you are in a hurry let rise 20 mins other wise let it rise 60 mins).  Works best to wait the full 60 mins.

IMG_1915

Take off the plastic wrap, punch down to get the air out.  You will need to dust with flour.

IMG_1919

Take out HALF the dough, spread on floured counter top. With your hands make  into a circle.  Keep dusting with flour so it is easy to work with. ( do the same with the other half of dough) I have found it is just easier to work with only half at a time.

IMG_1920

Cut into wedges, and roll up in to crescent roll shape.  Or you can just make balls  in the shape of dinner rolls.

IMG_1921

Place them on a greased pan, Bake 400 degrees 10-12 mins

IMG_1924

Once cooked, brush a bit of butter on top to give them a nice shine.  Take off baking sheet, cool on cooling rack.

Last but not least enjoy!

Healthy Snack Ideas, kale chips a recipe so easy you kids could  make them, low cost but healthy

Healthy Snacks Crispy Kale Chips

How many of you love something with crunch and a touch of salt… calling all potato ship addicts.  As much as I love a good potato chip they do not always love me back… maybe it is the fact that I am getting older? Or maybe it is the fact that I can eat  half a bag, not the little snack size back I am talking about the big family sized bag. Yip, leave it open next to me and slowly but surely they magically disappear.   Kale chips are a great way to satisfy that craving, in a healthy way.  They are really easy to make too!

What you need to make a batch:

1 bunch kale
2 T. olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat the oven to 275°F.
2. Fill a large bowl with water and add kale. Swish around to remove any dirt; drain. Dry thoroughly using a clean kitchen towel or salad spinner.
3. Tear the kale leaves into 1” – 2” pieces, discarding the ribs, and place in a large bowl.
4. Drizzle with olive oil and toss with your hands until evenly coated.
5. Arrange the leaves in a single layer (with NO overlap) on ungreased cookie sheets. Rub each leaf gently between your fingers as you work to ensure each is covered in oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Optional: Sprinkle a small amount of parmesan cheese
6. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until leaves are crispy.

This is a fun recipe we made a while back that is a great way to use leftover chicken! We love making this for a quick lunch, appetizer or just as a snack!

 

BBQ Chicken Potato Bake recipe

You will need

  • 5-7 medium potatoes washed and sliced
  • 1/4-1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce (can substitute salsa or alfredo if you don’t like BBQ)
  • 2-3  cups cooked chicken diced
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • dash of oil to coat the potatoes so they don’t stick while cooking
  • Salt and pepper
Bake Time 30-50 minutes depending on oven and thickness of your potatoes

Wash you potatoes and slice in  thin layers about 1/8- 1/4 of an inch. Thinner you cut them the quicker they will cook.  Put a thin layer of olive oil on a cookie sheet and toss potato slices in it so they get an nice even coating.  Season with salt and pepper.  Place in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or till they are fork tender.

Take out of the oven and top with cooked chicken, BBQ sauce, cheese and green onions.

Then put BACK IN THE OVEN at 350 degrees just till cheese it melted (normally about 5 minutes)

My kids love this!  If your little ones do not like BBQ sauce you can use salsa or alfredo sauce instead…yummy!

Easy Party Food Ideas for Adults Caprese Bites, Perfect for Holidays, Birthdays, Graduation, Summer. Make Ahead recipe, Healthy snack foodEasy party Food Ideas For Adults Caprese Bites

The title says adults, but this can be for any age group, my kids love these… but then again my kids are “weird” and eat lots of things other kids won’t. When put together these just turn out really classy and work well for an adult party or social gathering. The reason I plant a garden each year, is to harvest the tomatoes everyday…. so this recipe is one of my favorite snacks :). I also love to buy the FRESH mozzarella cheese balls from the specialty cheese section they make this recipe even BETTER! If you are in a rush this recipe can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator for a few hours before you are ready to serve them.

Ingredients
Grape or Cherry Tomatoes
Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Basil Leaves
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper
Toothpicks
