1 lb carrots peeled and sliced
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups mushroom broth
1/4 tsp pepper

On rainy days I sometimes pull out the bread machine and experiment. Bread Machine Rosemary Bread is a recipe I particularly like. The bread is fresh and fragrant and bits of sun-dried tomato add for a pop of freshness. This recipe is great served with cream cheese or just plain butter.
1 1/4 cups concentrated vegetable stock
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup diced sun-dried tomatoes (removed from the oil)
3 tbsp dried rosemary
1 1/4 tsp bread machine yeast
Measure ingredients in pan in order they are listed. Bake on 1.5 lb setting on regular cycle.
I like to serve this cheesecake as an alternative to heavy pies on the holidays. This dessert is light and fluffy. It’s not as filling as a traditional cheesecake and can be made with any flavor of gelatin powder.
1 package cream cheese
1 tub cottage cheese
1 small carton whipped cream
1 tbsp sugar
2 packages jello® (your favorite flavor)
Grind up ginger snaps and place in the bottom of an 8×11 greased glass pan.
Sun-dried tomato salad and goat cheese toast is a simple yet tasty lunch. It’s good during the summer months when you want something light but filling. Try with Strawberry Lemonade.
