We have pretty much abandoned our garden -because I was busy and husband was down with his back so much over the summer,
But he was checking on what we needed to do to clean it up for winter and what a surprise to find all these peppers!
So we had fajita bowls for supper last night and will have stuffed peppers maybe tomorrow
I tried a popular person’s Candied Pecans recipe-but they just ended up tasting like roasted pecans as the butter sugar mixture did not stick.
This recipe was done in a skillet. In the past, I’ve done other candied nuts recipes in the oven that I liked much better.
Grandchildren were here and none of these went to waste but they didn’t turn out at all like I expected.
I was given a bread machine - I’ve owned several bread machines but have worn them all out.
This is a Kenmore and it was still sealed in the box and never used, but it’s a number of years old.
I was pleasantly surprised it worked so well.
It makes a long, traditional shaped loaf. So far I’ve baked 2 batches of the Cinnamon Raisin bread in the instruction book.
It’s a very good bread and makes wonderful toast.
It only uses 1 tablespoon of butter and 2 tablespoons of sugar - much less than I’ve used in the past for sweet breads but it makes a delicious and sweet enough bread.
I do chop the raisins just a personal preference.
With the cost of groceries rising, many of us may be choosing to use recipes that use smaller amounts of expensive ingredients
And I recommend this recipe.
