My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, ... thank you!

Walnut Cinnamon Bread

Finally got around to posting pic 12/31/09:

I had such fun making the Simple Yeast Bread that I experimented a little yesterday. I took the recipe and did this with it:

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 cup warm water
1/4 cup oil

1 pkg/1 teaspoon bread machine yeast

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Place all ingredients (except walnuts) in bread machine pan in order per your machine's manufacturer's instructions. When the dough is well mixed, open the lid while it continues to mix and add the walnuts, a few at a time, until all are incorporated. Sounds kinda funny but well worth it! I baked with a medium crust, on quick-bake setting.

This was almost like eating a cinnamon roll. Perfect for a filling breakfast!
