Bread Recipe to Warm Your Winter Night

Our Ohio temperatures have again painfully dropped.  Monday I think it was in the glorious upper 40 degree range and since that time the wind chills have dropped down into the single digits!  Ugghhh.   As a matter of fact, there is a weather advisory for another winter blast coming through this evening.  I had to throw this yummy no-knead bread recipe your direction...just in case you get stuck inside and need something to warm your soul while the wind and ice blows through tonight.
I don't know if you are like me, but I often find myself purchasing a quart of buttermilk that I need for a recipe that I am making....and then wonder what in the heck to do with the rest!  Well, this week I have experimented with one of those quarts of buttermilk and this bread recipe is a winner.  It somewhat reminds me of the beer bread recipe that we have all tried and loved.  And better yet, it mixes quickly and is in the oven...soon to be filling your home with the aromas of good things ahead. 
No-Knead Buttermilk Bread*
In a large mixing bowl, combine:
1 1/2 cups of unbleached white flour
1/2 cup of unbleached wheat flour
1/2 cup of raw sugar
1 1/2 tsp. aluminum-free baking powder                                    
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. sea salt
In a small bowl, whisk the following:
1 cup low fat buttermilk
1 large egg
1/4 cup olive oil
*Always use organic ingredients when possible.
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients, and stir gently...just until combined.  Spoon into a loaf pan that has been lightly greased with coconut oil or any other oil that you may have on hand.  (Greasing your pans with coconut oil, gives your baked goods a lovely crunchy exterior.)   
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes.  Let the bread rest in the pan for at least 15 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.  Slice and enjoy while you listen to the winter winds howling outside your window!

Pumpkin Doughnut Pleasure

Written for The River Current Publication      I think I have said this before, but I just have to say it again…I love all things pumpkin!   If one doesn’t share my love of pumpkin around this time of year, I suppose it could be a difficult thing.    All that one could do I suppose, would be to sit back and wait for the pumpkin madness to subside!   As we have slipped into the magnificence of a Mid-Western fall season, you will find in my kitchen simmering pots of pumpkin chili, pumpkin breads, pumpkin pies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin coffees…well, I think you get the pumpkin picture!     For the last couple of weeks I have been craving a good pumpkin doughnut.   I have always been a huge fan of doughnuts, but in my quest for eating healthier, doughnuts are now a ‘once in a blue moon’ kind of treat for me.         I decided to try my luck at baking my doughnuts, rather than the typical fried version…making them a much healthier option.   What can I say…p

11.12.13 Random Anniversary Thoughts

Last week was a shit storm of unpleasantness for me.  For the last week it seems, I have fought back tears and sadness.  Silly things such as a looney ex-husband, rudeness, rejection and the death of a friend's husband; they all seemed to pile up on me like the autumn leaves in my back yard....or cow shit out in a pasture...they just kept piling up!   Perhaps also tucked in the back of my mind were the memories of the beautiful wedding weekend that Rick and I shared two years ago today.  I shared on my blog, Marital Status: W  last year, how I have always been fascinated with the unique sequencing of numbers on a calendar...weird, I know.  Special dates that will never occur again.  Rick and I had teased each other when trying to select such a numerical sequence for our wedding day.  Today the uniqueness of 11/12/13, for some silly reason even brought tears to my eyes.  What a cool date...Rick would have liked it, just as I do.   It is almost unimaginable that it has b
