Bright, Happy, Healthy Eggs

I just had to share with everyone how incredibly happy, bright, healthy colored eggs makes me. I know the price of organic free range egg can be frightening until you get them home and crack them open. The price paid is so very evident once the shell is cracked.

I remember years ago when I was first introduced to a happy, healthy egg. At first I wasn’t sure what to think. Then I thought the egg had gone bad. My sister laughed and told me that really good eggs were supposed to look that way. I was skeptical, but was quickly converted at an early age after my first bite. There is no mistaking the two. I did not need a side by side comparison. It was very obvious that I had been missing out.

Three Berry Scones with Apple Butter

I’m not a fussy baker. I’ll just put it out there. Making pastry drives me bonkers and anything that involves cutting cold butter into flour is rarely attempted in this house. Sometimes I’ll see the most amazing recipe, so I put my doubts behind me and plow forward. The result? 95% disappointing. I guess I just don’t have the technique.  So this little diddy was made this morning and it turned out lovely and I don’t even feel any guilt about eating them because the were so darn good. I whipped up a batch of apple butter while they were baking and treated myself to an amazing breakfast. I highly recommend you do the same!

My Comfort Food

It’s not mashed potatoes but bread is a no brainer when it comes to comfort food. For me it’s toast and tomatoes. This Triple Seed Whole Wheat Bread does the trick very nicely.
 
 
We have made this bread recipe that belongs to my mother in law for a couple of years now. We had to make bread from scratch when we isolated ourselves at the fire tower because groceries only came in once a month and we definitely had no room in our tiny 2 square foot freezer to store loaves from the market. But what a great experience it was to learn all these new techniques. What a blessing it was to have internet (I can’t stress that enough) so I could research all sorts of bread recipes.

There were 3 we relied almost entirely. The first was this one of course, our day to day staple. The second was an incredible recipe for authentic Italian pizza dough that I got from www.101cookbooks.com. And lastly a French bread recipe as a treat. This bread is so great. I can eat this on it own, as the bones that make a sandwich delightful, or as a side dish for fabulous salads such as Tomato and Boccaccini drizzled with olive oil and balsamic. When the markets are show casing heirloom tomatoes, I simply can’t resist picking up some comfort food. Tomatoes and cheese with bread.

Butternut Squash Waffles With Mapled Apples and Walnuts

I’m really excited about this new recipe! Brilliance. I’m always trying to find new and exciting ways to use left overs. That experiment has led me to some wonderful places, this recipe being one of them. If you have any left over squash it can be used to make this incredible brunch item. If you have a husband like mine, who will eat brown sugar and maple syrup by the spoonful, this works as an everyday breakfast item too. Most of us can’t afford to be that extravagant with our calories, so if you’re like me you’ll save this one as a special treat.
