Sundays in the Kitchen

We’ve spent the last few Sundays in the kitchen baking and cooking for the next week. What’s your most recent creation?

The Baha Baked Black Beans recipe…we always have to boil and bake them for much longer than they do at Rebar.

6 Strand Braided Challah…we’ve made these loaves the last few weekends and have enough bread for toast and sandwiches all week!

I stumbled across Jeannette’s blog, Everybody Likes Sandwiches recently and have already tried two of her delicious recipes. The Chocolate Chip Maple Walnut Cookies were delightful (we made them twice actually!) and this morning I added her Maple Apples recipe to our morning waffles and local Galloping Goose Pepper Bacon.

Basic Waffles

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 T sugar

1 T baking powder

1/2 t baking soda

1/2t salt

1-3/4 cups Almond Breeze (or milk)

6 T veg oil

2 Large eggs

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl until well blended and smooth. Let batter rest for 5 minutes while waffle maker heats up.

Pour 1/3 cup of batter onto centre of waffle grill and spread batter to within 1/2 inch of edge of grill. Close lid and cook waffle.

Remove waffle and serve immediately or put in baking disk in warm oven until ready to serve.
