Spent Saturday morning doing some bread baking. Made our 4 loaves of bread for the week, and also made 8 pizza shells and a dozen sub buns. On top of that we made some pita wraps, also called flour tortillas or bannock. Super easy to make. The hardest part is rolling them out flat. So we made a video where the first half simply shows me rolling them. The trick is to keep dusting the shell, and flipping and moving it while making it thinner.
Found the recipe in the box of powdered pectin for jams and jellies. Figuring the apple jelly might be an interesting experiment I bought a bottle of Blue Menu Apple Juice at the Atlantic Superstore. I didn’t see all the details of the product but upon closer inspection of the label, it had 60% less sugar and sweetened with Stevia. 😛
Today we made up a new cookie recipe, we call them Peanut Butter Chocolate Pockets. A well balanced flavour and a stable cookie dough. The little video we made shows the folding technique and end results.
We tried a recipe online, that was featured on CTV Canada Am. Peach Amaretto Jam. It sounded good and amaretto in small amounts can add an interesting flavour. The recipe called for 1/3 cup. If I had my time back I would not have put that much, if any. So while the recipe worked to make 7 cups of jam, the flavour of amaretto is too powerful.
Made some of these pita shells for supper after seeing a commercial for A&W’s Chicken Bacon Wrap Sandwich. Never made the shells before. Super simple recipe and they bake on the stove top in a frying pan 60 sec one side, 30 sec on the other. The shells with the darker spots had the best flavor so I’ll be sure to darken them some more next time I make them.
With our homemade pie crust, 6 apples and a caramel sauce drizzled over top… its difficult to wait for the oven to do its part 🙂
Preparing supper tonight. It was difficult to cut through the first potato. Literally had to crack open the potato to see why. A small finishing nail embedded in the potato. Purchased from Altantic Superstore in Antigonish Nova Scotia some time either late April or early May. Trying to narrow down the time frame.
Here’s how we make our homemade cinnamon rolls. Enjoy!
Found this recipe online, made with 250ml (1 cup) sour cream. Deep fried for about 1-1/2 minutes. Cover with glaze or for a double whammy, let cool then dip in dark chocolate 🙂
