I’ve been cooking and baking for all of my adult life, but I’m still learning! I recently discovered two things that I’ve been doing WRONG in my bread baking for all these years! Getting them right has made a big difference in results,. I wonder if you’re doing these things, too?
Here we are in the pretty dreary days of winter with the possibility of six more weeks ahead of us, however, we have the opportunity to add some sparkle and cheeriness to our homes, thanks to Valentine’s Day, just around the corner!
I’ve added just a few touches here and there. It’s nothing grand, but enough to change things up a bit in the entry way, living room and kitchen.
The world is filled with attitudes of selfishness, impatience and rudeness, so when a woman displays the godly attribute of kindness, it is a striking contrast. This week’s podcast episode will answer what, why, where and how of kindness in a believer’s life. Oh, and listen to see if you would pass “the kindness quiz.”
I had a fun baking afternoon last week. I whipped up a batch of Low-Fat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies. When I told my daughter Alli what I had made she said,
No cookie should be Low-fat!
I get what she’s saying, but honestly, I have tried many recipes that are labeled “low-fat,” but still have so much flavor. Also, they don’t taste like you’re eating the sand on the beach! This new recipe is one of those great finds! It replaces applesauce for some of the fat, giving it plenty of moisture. It has oatmeal in it, too, giving it texture and chewiness. Add those chocolate chips in there and you have a delicious cookie without the guilt!
