Best Bread Machine Bread

There are times I use my bread machine, and times I just use the oven, depending on my day. This is a GREAT bread machine recipe. I've just changed a few things.

First thing is to know your bread machine manufacturers recommended way to place ingredients into the pan. Mine is wet, dry, then yeast in a little indent on top of the dry.

Best Bread Machine Bread
1 cuip warm water
2 TBSP white siugar
1 (.25 ounce) yeast
1/4 cup veggie oil
3 cups flour
1.5 tsp salt

Select basic or white bread setting and press start.

So after I place all the ingredients into the bread machine pan. Then, here is the trick, instead of pressing the pan in until it clicks into the base I just set it into the hole. Then I turn it onto basic setting. About 30 minutes later the machine will beep signaling it is going into "rise" mode. I then unplug the machine, plug it back in and click the pan down into the base and start it back on "basic" mode. and let it cook!

By not clicking it down into the base it makes this recipe double in size, it makes it so much better.. trust me, try it!

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.

How perfect does this sound for an easy Friday night din…

One Month to love book review

This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life. Some people are more easy to love than others, and this definitely helps with the difficulties involved in some people. Some things in this book are very predictable. Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
