Apple braid

Apple braid
Hi all, I’m Rachael from La Fuji Mama and am tickled to have been asked by Jenna to share one of my crazy concoctions here on Eat, Live, Run! Jenna is very brave! I’ve had apples on the brain lately, partially due to these three handsome little fellas sitting on my counter top waiting for me to decide what they would become. I love a good apple pie, but wasn’t really in a pie mood. Then, when I woke up one morning craving homemade bread, inspiration struck. Apples + Homemade Bread = An Apple Braid! tossed them with cinnamon, sugar, and lemon juice and threw them in the oven to start cooking while I made the dough for the braid. When the dough was ready, I rolled it out into a big rectangle, then cut each side into strips. The finished braid went onto a baking sheet into the oven until it was a nice light golden brown. The whole process is much more enjoyable if you have a sous chef to help out. Apple Braid Makes 1 bread (approximately 12 servings) Print this recipe! For the Apple Filling

Soul Sweet ‘Taters Well, shiver me timbers. Long ago, I had shared the final photo and printable recipe for my all-time favorite sweet potato dish. It’s called Soul Sweet ‘Taters, and my mother and aunt used to make it every Thanksgiving during my childhood on the golf course. It’s technically a side dish…but if the world was a logical place, it would fall under the category of desserts. It’s sweet, crunchy, beautiful…but has that lovely sweet potato flavor that’s deliciously unmistakable. Better Than a Silver Packet: DIY Cream Cheese » Wonderland Kitchen The deeper I dig into DIYing basic household foods such as rice milk or nut butters, the weirder I sometimes feel about sharing those processes here. Sure, a recipe for homemade cereal bars might come in handy, but a lot of these typical grocery store items–from tahini to garlic powder–end up being pretty simple to produce from scratch in the average kitchen when all is said and done. So perhaps you might think of these posts as more of a Pinterest board of reminders or inspirations when it starts to feel like everything you buy has soy lecithin and whey derivatives added.
