Brazil Nut Bread

8 Mar

Yesterday I baked a great new bread which is a variation of the Yogurt Yeast Bread.  I added 3/4 cup of ground fresh brazil nuts.  The best way to grind these nuts is by adding 3/4 cup of  bread flour to the nuts in a food processor.  Then add the flour/nut mixture to the bread recipe when you are adding the dry ingredients.

It’s soup season and I finally found a package of the good green lentils at Trader Joe’s.

My Best Corn Muffin Recipe

5 Apr

Best Corn Muffins

I’ve stumbled on a cornbread/corn muffin recipe that has a good balance of corn flavor and cake-like texture.  As close to Trader Joe’s Cornbread mix as I can get.

I’ve added some ground almonds to my recipe, but that’s optional.

Try it!

Another Classic Bag

12 May

April 2013 – I had to make another Classic Bag, to use up my remnant of the Bear tapestry fabric.

The pattern is from Carol’s Carryalls.

I’ve made so many versions of this bag because of the size and pockets.  From top to bottom, Summer Bag, Jungle Bag, Denim Bag, Ann’s Bag and Bear Bag.
