MARLENE (Domestic Diva) MADE MY 2-HOUR NO KNEAD “BREAKFAST” BREAD

“Made your 2-hour No Knead loaf, which I’ve made several times, but decided to experiment today. Added a large handful of Gerbs Super 5 Dried Fruit Mix, another handful of Anthony’s Organic Pumpkin Seeds and approximately 1 1/2 TBLS organic honey. After the 1 hour rest, followed directions, but formed into a loaf and rested on parchment paper in an oblong tinfoil pan. I then baked it in my clay loaf baker with lid (amazon.com). My husband and I agreed it’s the best “breakfast” loaf ever! It rose and baked so beautifully that I took a picture and sent it to you.Thanks for this incredible, versatile, forgiving recipe!”

 – That sounds incredible, and perfect for breakfast. Thank you.  –  jennyFastest Dutch Oven Bread

I Love This Lemon Blueberry Loaf!

Lemon Blueberry Loaf Recipe

I found some beautiful organic blueberries yesterday and I put the whole box into this gorgeous loaf! 🫐 Has anybody noticed that blueberries aren’t really blue? They’re kind of purple. Whatever color they are, I love this loaf so much, not just for the lightly sweet taste, but for the health benefits of the berries. The deep hues are what fills blueberries with so many nutrients. Don’t just take it from me. WebMD says:

“Packed with antioxidants, blueberries are also high in potassium and vitamin C. Not only can they lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, they are also anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is a key driver of all chronic diseases.” I hope that motivates you to make this delicious lemon blueberry loaf. Click here for the recipe and don’t skimp on the berries!

Plain Chicken Jambalaya

plain_chicken_jambalay_jenny_can_cookNEW RECIPE: Finally! A new recipe! I know!👨‍🍳 I hesitated to post this Chicken Jambalaya recipe because it’s not authentic and it’s sort of plain but I love it so much I’m posting it anyway. I’ve been making it a lot lately because it’s fast, healthy, and not spicy since I use my own homemade seasoning mix. The whole thing takes 45 minutes to make and I sometimes include shrimp, so there is a variation for that in the recipe. Most people use Andouille sausage in Jambalaya but I don’t care much for sausage yet this jambalaya still has plenty of flavor. These days I’m always looking to my one-pan meals when I’m busy and this is my newest addition to that list. For a Creole recipe that’s quick and easy, and healthy, and not spicy, give it a try. Click here for the recipe.

BETH’S GRANDDAUGHTER (from Canada) MADE MY CHOCOLATE PUDDING

“Hi Jenny, My granddaughter is watching you make chocolate pudding while she was eating lunch and then she made it for a treat. After making chocolate pudding in the sandbox she asked to make the real thing. It was so delicious and we forgot to take a finished photo. I have to say Jenny I have so enjoyed your recipes and especially baking without butter section. And now I am addicted to the bran muffins too and use whole wheat pastry wherever I can.    I could send you numerous pics since I take many food photos for reference.  Another time.

I did have a question about flour weights.  I bake sourdough bread from wild yeast only so I’m a bit of a weigh scale snob.  😉 I am from Ontario so i know US and Canadian flours do not weigh the same.  I prefer to weigh and for certain recipes i have used the Candian weight. 150 grams/ 1 cup. Thats for white flour.  I adjust to whatever flour Im using.  Should I follow this rule for all the baking recipes?   Ive had the burger buns turn out a bit heavy I would say. Sincerely,
Beth Stewart.”

What a joy to see this darling little girl cooking! I hope she enjoys a lifetime of fun in the kitchen. Thank you for sharing these adorable photos and tell her congratulations on such as good job!  jenny

p.s. I’m from Ontario too but did not realize that these flours don’t weigh the same. For other baking besides bread, I suggest trying less flour, no more than 130 grams per cup – see my metric chart above. I hope that helps.

JASMIN (from Alaska) MADE MY NO KNEAD BREADS

“I just left a review, but I’ll tell you again! I am so thankful for this recipe. My family loves it, and we can add things to it and change it up, and it always turns out great, as long as we stick to basic measurements. ❤️ We’re a military family, stationed in Alaska. Costs are so high here. Just baking your own bread helps offset some of those costs. I have to say I came across this recipe, when I was searching for a good crusty bread. We love your ribs, so I came to your page to look, and won the jackpot 😀.”

– They all look fabulous and thank you for sharing the details.   jenny

MARY (from Wisconsin) MADE MY DOUBLE CHOCOLATE BISCOTTI

“Dear Jenny, Here is a photo of the biscotti I made last week using your Double Chocolate Almond Biscotti recipe.  In a pinch, walnuts or macadamia nuts are an easy substitute for the almonds.

Thank you for sharing your talents with so many people! ~ Mary Milanowski, West Allis, Wisconsin.”

Photo of the Month (Nov – Dec)

Cinnamon Rolls Jenny Can CookThis photo sent me into my kitchen to set out the cinnamon and all the ingredients needed to make cinnamon rolls. That’s why my photo of the month(s) is this one from Barb in Ontario, Canada.  She and her husband both lost their jobs in the past year so she’s been making everything at home, including all of my breads. Hubby has a sweet tooth and was craving cinnamon rolls. “I was reticent about cinnamon rolls,” she said, “I thought they’d be too tricky for me!  BUT I watched your video, taking note of the tips for not rolling too tight and using dental floss for slicing. It was easy!” And they must have been delicious because they were all gone by the next day. Thank you, Barb, for your tasty photo. My cinnamon rolls didn’t last long either. 😋
