Simplest Ever Homemade Bread – Under TWO hours Recipe

If you never baked bread before, or anything else from scratch for that matter, YOU CAN make this bread with ease.

This is the simplest baking recipe I have ever come across, and even someone who never baked, will be able to bake this delicious homemade bread within TWO hours from the beginning to the end.

No need for a mixer (bowl and spoon suffices), no KNEADING required, no yeast proofing, and before you know it, you will have a perfect loaf of freshly baked bread to enjoy.

June Veggie and Flower Garden

It has been a while since I posted an update of my garden…my favorite place for relaxation.

So much already has happened in my garden by now.  All my annual and perennial plants are up, some already passed their bloom time, others are just getting ready.  My June Strawberries are all gone already, and my Blackberries are getting ready to ripen.

Here are some pictures of my plants at the end of June….:-)

Botvinka – Red Beet Leaf and Herb Soup

Once my garden produces an abundance of fresh herbs and vegetables, the time is right to cook Botvinka. Soups are very popular in Eastern Europe, and are the first course of a lunch of dinner meal, just like tossed salads in the US.

The name for this soup derives from the description of the tops (botvinka – leaves and stalks) of very young red beet plants, which are the major ingredient in this soup. This dish is full of goodness of fresh, young, green leafy vegetables, and because they are so tender, they require very short cooking time.
