Bread Stuffing THM-E

The fall Holidays are not complete without that tasty dish of Stuffing/filling. My mother always made the best Bread Stuffing but due to her dementia she no longer can.

Peach Slush to freeze THM-E

Have you ever wanted a way to preserve the fresh taste of peaches all year long? You can! Peaches freeze very well and they taste just as good as when you have them tree-ripened in the summer. My family loves frozen peaches slush in their packed lunches. Freestone peaches like Red Haven, John Boy, and Contender are the best peaches to use for freezing. Peaches are available from late May into early October depending on your location.

Sourdough Perogies THM-XO

One of the many traditional German side dishes popular in Lancaster County is homemade egg noodles. I learned the art of noodle making from my Old Order Mennonite grandmother and aunts as they made dishpans of noodles for their large families. The Atlas Noodle Maker I have was a gift from my late mother-in-law. These Perogies are made with sourdough pasta that has been fermented for more than 24 hours. With this recipe you can also make noodles and even Ravioli. Perogies and ravioli are a bit time consuming but we do enjoy them for special occasions.

No-knead Jalapeno Cheddar Sourdough Bread THM-E

After the busyness of the past few weeks, I got to spend all day in my kitchen doing something I love, Sourdough!! By now most of you all should know that I love to create recipes using sourdough starter. There is something so rewarding about taking flour, water, and salt and creating a warm crusty loaf of bread. Best of all, most of my family enjoys eating the recipes I create. Tonight this bread was served with Southwestern Chicken and Bean Soup for the men and I also made Beefy Cabbage Soup for myself.
