Something happens to me a lot: I have to make LOTS and LOTS of food from scratch.
It usually happens on the weekends, and then we eat the feast throughout the week.
Sometimes it happens during the week.
So, Monday night I put some beans to soak to make the best batch of beans you ever did taste. The secret is in the water, believe it or not. The next secret is slow-cooking them. Those are all the hints for now, though.
I continued to play “chef” and made my own apple crisp recipe. I was trying it out to see if it would be worthy of Christmas morning breakfast.
Later, I made some fabulous spaghetti sauce using diced tomatoes with garlic and onion and one can of tomato sauce. I will never buy sauce in a jar again.
Lastly, I made rolls. Not just any kind of rolls, but real, baked-from-scratch-and-used-yeast rolls. I’ve been eating them like they’re candy:
I wrote an article for these rolls complete with the recipe. I figured out how to make these from scratch AND you don’t have to “knead” them. They’re light and fluffy and…every time I think about them, I just want to lick my lips because the scent of baking bread and homebaked goodness is seriously overpowering.
As for the other stuff, I wonder if people are interested. When I make the beans, sauce and apple crisp again, would you all like me to share them?
Really, I wanted to have fun with a little picture editing, but I’ll definitely share some of my secrets if people are interested.
