Butter Rolls – European Recipe

I have been experimenting with different recipes for yeast raised baked goods, such as crescents, breads and rolls.  Some are quite simple and others are more sophisticated, but they all are so heavenly delicious, hence so worth the preparation effort.

Today, I will share my latest recipe for delicious butter rolls, so rich and buttery, and as all yeast raised baked goods, they are at their prime taste right after baking, while still slightly warm….but never served when still HOT.

Yeast raised baked goods need cooling off time before serving, to retain their best texture and flavor.

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….:-)

Sorrel Borscht (Shchav, Shavel) – Recipe

If you like tangy flavored soups, you will love Sorrel Borscht (Shchav). My first experience with tasting this dish was in a Polish restaurant, while visiting my family in Poland. My husband really liked the slightly tangy taste of this soup, so I have been preparing it during the sorrel growing season. The main ingredient is sorrel, of course, a simple herb but not easily found in a grocery store, but rather in a specialty food shop, or a garden (your own or your friend’s).

You can find a ready made Shchav, in the Kosher section at your favorite grocery store, but it’s taste does not measure up to the fresh, home made version. Once you make it at home, you most likely will never want to buy it pre-made.
