The No Knead Bread Series #1 – Rustic White Bread

I have been asked by a few lovely ladies over the past few weeks what my favorite type of bread is to bake and what is my easiest recipe? So to answer the first question – my favorite bread – the answer is…..bread. All bread. I really can’t choose just one, but I do have a weakness for simple white bread. I know it’s the most unhealthy of them all, but it’s so fluffy and comforting. I just can’t help it. My easiest recipe, is the one I will share with you here today and for the next couple of weeks – different versions of the same thing.

Meatloaf & Meatballs – Freezer Cooking 101

Are you someone who does a lot of freezer cooking? I am, and I really enjoy doing it. I put a lot of effort into cooking meals from scratch at home, so when I do, I like to make large quantities and portion it out and freeze it to make life simple later.

Ham & Cheese Quiche

Since we got our chickens last year at Scarlett Homestead, our consumption of eggs has probably increased a little, but truth be told, I’m not that big of a fan of eggs. The only type of egg I really crave, and very rarely at that, is in egg salad, eggs benedict, or a quiche. On any other day, in any other form, I will probably pass on the eggs. I can eat them, but I won’t pick them on my own. When I was pregnant they made me gag. Thankfully that passed. It’s a weird relationship we have, me and eggs.

If you aren’t familiar with the dish, Tourtière, then let me introduce you. This traditional French Canadian meat pie comes from the Province of Quebec and is typically made from a mix of beef, pork or veal with a distinct spice mix, baked in a pie crust. It’s simple, yet so incredibly packed with flavor.
