I made this delicious (and easy!) recipe from The Pioneer Woman many times this spring. Basically all you do is add 2-3 Tablespoons of olive oil to the skillet, add TONS of freshly minced garlic, heap the skillet with fresh spinach (and I mean HEAP … it really cooks down!), and cook for less than a minute. I should be just starting to wilt, but a tiny bit crispy. Add a little salt and YUM! Got a healthy does of iron many times from this little gem!
I have been trying to teach myself how to bake bread for a few years now. I’m sorry to say that even after TWO YEARS, I am not very good at it.
See? Beautiful, right? But … it’s white bread. And we just don’t do white bread.
So, I am still trying and trying to learn how to make good wheat bread. The best recipe I have found so far is this one for Honey Oatmeal Bread from Tasty Kitchen. It really is delicious, but …
… why, oh why won’t it rise??? Like I said, still delicious though.
I guess practice makes perfect. Try, try, again!
We absolutely LIVED off this pizza last summer! SO delicious … and with my recipe, SO easy!
I buy the pre-made, whole wheat pizza crust at the store … the kind that come two in a package. Brush olive oil over the crust and sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese. Top with LOTS of local heirloom tomatoes, fresh, torn basil leaves, fresh mozzarella (I used a combination of fresh and packaged mozz. here, as I didn’t have quite enough of the fresh), and seasonings (garlic, salt, pepper, etc.)
Bake until cheese is melted.
Experiment with this using different heirloom tomatoes for TOTALLY different tastes. I used Amana Orange here, which I just canNOT get enough of. It was also delicious with Mortgage Lifters and Cherokee Purples.
