I love the taste and smell of fresh rosemary bread. This recipe uses yeast and therefore requires two rising periods to get the "fluffy" feel and taste that makes it so delicious. The recipe itself is easy, but make sure you can be around for a few hours to "ready" your bread as needed. I hope you enjoy the smell of your kitchen as much as I did while making this... do you think a rosemary perfume is suddenly going to appear?
I love quiche any time of year. It's a great way to use whatever vegetables you have on hand. Plus if you keep eggs and a pie crust on hand, you'll have a dinner ready without having to run to the store (assuming you have something in your fridge other than just the eggs and pie crust). This recipe is the most recent quiche I made. It's a spicy sausage and pepper quiche, so if you're vegetarian or don't like spicy foods you might need to make a few adjustments. Enjoy!
I can demolish a bag of frozen fruit. It's a great snack and satisfies my sweet tooth without leaving me with a stomach ache. My favorite snack is frozen blueberries, mangos, or peaches. I've only found two downsides: 1) I have to huddle beneath a blanket when I eat these in the winter, and 2) The frozen blueberries turn my teeth and lips blue.
Just make sure you get the no-sugar-added frozen or fresh fruit and then freeze. Happy snacking!
I love to start my day with a fruit smoothie. 1) It tastes good, 2) It gets me the fruit I need for the day, which can be hard to do in the winter, and 3) It gives my internal parts the fiber and nutrients needed to help me feel "on" and energetic for the day. The beauty of the smoothie recipe is that it is very forgiving. You can add most anything you want and it will still be good. I personally love frozen blueberries, strawberries, and mangos, but they're all good. I like to keep things exciting by trying new fruit when I see it. (Yes, I find that exciting.) Last thing: buy your fruit on sale and freeze it, or buy it in bulk at Target or some sort of Costsco/BJ's.
Enjoy - and make sure you're getting some fruit each day!
