Strawberry Balsamic Muffins

Strawberry Balsamic Muffins @ Traditional-Foods.com

I love Elise over at Simply Recipes. She has a masterful sense of food. I trust her. That’s the only reason why I considered putting balsamic vinegar and black pepper in these muffins. What a combo! It makes me want to plant another row of strawberries in the garden. Months later Frederick convinced me to…

Whole Grain Angel Biscuits

Whole Grain Angel Biscuits @ Traditional-Foods.com

Biscuits have been a life-long love of mine. In high school I came in second in a state 4-H bread baking competition with my biscuits. Biscuits are serious items in this home! When my girls were young I made a whopping batch of whole wheat sourdough biscuits almost every weekend. Leftovers became morning toast and…

Applesauce Bread with Cardamom

Applesauce Bread with Cardamom @ Traditional-Foods.com

With the bonanza of mountain apples we had this year, I made lots of applesauce. It was amazing — dark and richly flavored. Even with no added sugar or spices, it was an epicurean experience and I had to try baking with it. Does a dynamite applesauce make a difference in baked goods or does…

Applesauce Muffins with Dried Fruit (or Candied Zucchini)

Applesauce Muffins @ Traditional-Foods.com

The key to a winning spiced muffin or sweet bread is the perfect blending of spices. Ashley at Delish provided that very element to a muffin recipe I adapted slightly to use some of our dehydrated candied zucchini (our “zucc-raisins“), though you can use dried apple, raisin, or cranberry instead. The results were so wonderful…

Zucchini Corn Bread

This recipe comes from an older book, Zucchini Cookery by Wilderness House. The recipe has stood the test of time. The addition of the zucchini and honey keeps the corn bread moist long after traditional corn bread would be stale. We make this bread with fresh-ground spelt. Spelt bakes up more lightly than regular whole…

How To Make Flat Bread At Home

This is a treat we all love and it is so easy I don’t know why we don’t have it more often. The KitchenAid mixer is the hero of this piece. Every couple of weeks Amanda grinds a gallon of spelt (freshly ground spelt is amazing for baking) using an attachment for the KitchenAid. Then…

Winter Squash Rolls

winter-squash-rolls-900

Whenever I bake butternut squash or pumpkin for puree, I bake as much as I can fit on the roasting tray. If you are going to take the time and dirty the kitchen, get as much out of the effort as possible. What I like to do is keep four or five cups of that…

Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

lemon-poppy-seed-scones-1000

For a couple of decades we have loved our lemon poppy seed muffins. It is a great combination of flavors. When I stumbled across a recipe for lemon poppy seed scones I was intrigued. In all my baking life I had never tried scones. In fact, the only place I have ever encountered one is…
