I Made Bran Muffins

Homemade Bran MuffinsI make bran muffins on a “regular” basis. I freeze them and just take out one a day, put a little butter on it, and it’s my evening snack with a glass of warm milk.  The combination of molasses and vanilla gives it that old school bran muffin taste. The older I get, the more I… make bran muffins.🙂 Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

My Simple Lentil Soup

Simple Pureed Lentil SoupSome days, a big bowl of this thick and hearty soup is all I need for dinner, with one of my crusty rolls of course. Lentils are high in protein, low in fat, and have lots of health benefits. I used to have it without pureeing but once I pureed it in the food processor, I never went back. It comes out so thick and creamy, perfect for a cold winter day.

I use unsalted chicken stock but vegetarians can use vegetable stock. I sometimes add some chopped baby spinach in that last couple of minutes if I have it. Either way, lentil soup makes a healthy and satisfying meatless meal. (Don’t forget the crusty roll! 😋) Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

“Jenny-  This is the best, easiest, and most versatile bread recipe I’ve come across.  (And I’ve been baking A LOT during quarantine!)  For this easy sandwich rye I added 1/2 cup plain yogurt to the 1 cup of water, and 1/2 cup rye flour to the remaining 2 1/2 cups bread flour.  I also added 1T of caraway seeds. It’s soft with a tender crumb, and tastes wonderful! ~ Lynette Anderson, Portland Oregon.”
