Sunday Dinner

30 Minute MealsI wanted something easy to make for dinner so I picked my 30-minute spaghetti with meat sauce and spinach. It’s a complete meal and it all cooks in one pot. Yes. The spaghetti cooks in the sauce along with the beef and spinach. I love that it makes a thick, meaty and delicious spaghetti and the spinach adds lots of nutrition. The recipe calls for 5 ounces of spinach but if I can cram a little more under the lid I always do because it looks like a lot, but spinach cooks down so much it almost disappears – not a bad thing for those who are not fans of this nutritious green. I have made it with baby spinach and also regular spinach, whichever one looks fresher in the package. I love this easy dinner. I went back for two more helpings, it’s that good.

Healthy Cinnamon RollsOh, and I made cinnamon rolls with breakfast. Notice I say “with” and not “for.” That’s because cinnamon rolls FOR breakfast is a no-no. But once you have your eggs and whole grain toast and a little fruit, you’re allowed to have a cinnamon roll. At least that’s the rule around here because it’s my kitchen and I am in charge! 🙂 This is an easy one-rise recipe that I make without butter but you can use butter in the filling if you like. It’s one of my most popular recipes. Click here for my cinnamon rolls recipe. – Jenny Jones

DALILA MADE MY ENGLISH MUFFINS

“Hi Jenny!  🌺 I made your ENGLISH MUFFINS for a nice and fresh version of muffins instead of store bought ones. I do bake quite a bit of your bread and roll recipes and they always come out wonderful! So…..why not do your ENGLISH MUFFINS TOO?! Guess what…..they came out great!! 👌 I added some raisins, golden raisins and cranberries to half of the dough. I also added cinnamon to that half. The second half I left plain for just a regular English muffin. These muffins have a very nice texture…..a yummy breakfast or snack. Talk about some nooks & crannies, lovin’ these beauties. On the plain one I added a poached egg with a sprinkling of pepper and a glass of cranberry juice. The cinnamon raisin muffin went with a choice of peanut butter or cherry preserves with a cup of coffee.
Thank you for another tasty recipe Ms. Jenny!  Happy Baking!  🙂”

~ Thank you for another lovely photo. I am making these today myself. ~ jenny

Easy Multigrain Artisan Bread

Easy Mulitgrain Artisan BreadI never knew such a healthy, hearty bread could be so good and so easy to make. It’s probably the no knead bread I make the most because it’s just so easy. I haven’t bought bread in years. All of the bread recipes I post here are ones I make at home and it’s usually the Dutch oven breads because they are so easy to put together.

The prep is barely 5 minutes as you just combine the oats and flour(s) with yeast, salt, and water in a bowl. You cover the dough and let it rest overnight and the next day you fold the dough over a few times, let it rest a while, and bake in a Dutch oven. It’s foolproof. And you get a hearty, crusty loaf of bread you could never buy anywhere that’s so fresh and delicious. This multigrain no knead loaf is usually part of my breakfast and I also love it with a bowl of vegetable soup.

I started the dough last night but I was impatient this morning and didn’t wait the full 2 hours before baking. It was actually 1 hour and 15 minutes so I saved 45 minutes off the resting time. I will try it again with the shorter resting time and if it works once more (and was not a flook) I will adjust the recipe so you can make it faster.
