Blog of the Week – Are You Hungry?

Are You HungryIf you are anything like me and have a bread maker that generally sits in a cupboard and only comes out occasionally, well you might want to rethink that habit.

Our Blog of the Week this week is ‘Are you Hungry?’ and here we find a woman who whips up dough for foccaccia, pizza bases and a variety of breads in her bread maker.

So guess what, I dragged out my bread maker so that I can try some of these really tasty sounding recipes.

Now three recipes caught my eye in the first instance.  The first is the Quick Dill or Cheesy Biscuits where Kathleen gives you two biscuit recipes plus the formula to make your own baking mix, which is ideal if you aren’t fond of store brought baking mix or if you feel it is too expensive. The baking mix recipe keeps for up to 6 weeks in an air tight container or 6 months in the freezer.

Then there are the Orange and Oatmeal breakfast breads. Kathleen has adapted the Oatmeal recipe from an old Betty Crocker book so that it is suitable to make in the breadmaker and  the Cinamon Sunshine bread that she has adapted from other recipes.

As I said before, if you spend the time to read through this great blog, the tasty recipes will soon have you wanting to make more use of your bread maker.   

Now for the ‘piece de resistance’ one of my all time favorites ‘Pigs in Blankets’. Kathleen has provided a recipe for ‘ Bread machine onion bread’ in which to make a delicious bread in which to wrap the sausages or hot dogs.

So there you have it, another excellent recipe blog  that I found over on La Bella Vita. And in case you are wondering how the blog got its name, well its something we can all relate to when we are growing up, our mothers and aunts always seemed concerned that we hadn’t eaten enough or weren’t getting our fill of food and would always ask ‘Are you Hungry?’ So it made sense to Kathleen that this was an ideal name for her recipe blog and I agree.

Please take the time to visit ‘Are You Hungry?’, another excellent cooking blog.
