Blueberry Bagels

Bagels never last in our home so it is no surprise that I have to make them often. While making a batch of my plain bagels, I decided to experiment with adding a little lemon and a blueberry puree and see how it turns out. By golly miss molly! It was amazing!!! I cannot express or explain how amazing these are! So, just give them a try and let me know what you think on facebook or here! They will knock your socks off!!

You Will Need:

1 Pint Organic Blueberries
2 tbsp Organic Lemon, juiced
1 pk Non-GMO Yeast
1 tsp Salt
5 1/2 Cups Bread Flour
2/3 Cups Water
1/4 Cup Organic Sugar, not pictured


Place water, lemon juice, and blueberries in a blender; blender until puree is smooth 


Done


(see my notes hehe) Place all dry ingredients into a stand mixer


Add the puree and continue to mix


You may need a little more water, add 1 tbsp at a time; until the dough forms a ball. Continue mixing on setting 2 for 10 minutes 


Place in a greased bowl


Cover and rise for 40 minutes in a warm area 


Cut the dough


Weigh out 3 oz balls (this is for mini bagels)


Roll into the ball and place on a cookie sheet, rise for 20 minutes covered with a damp towel


Once done rising, place a pointer finger in the middle and spin until a big enough whole 


They will not look perfect, but honestly who cares! My kids helped so they look 'goofy' (allow these to rest until water boils)


Boil water in a pot with with 6 tbsp of organic raw honey


Add four to five bagels at a time, gently


Boil for 1 minute per side


Drain and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 15-18 minutes. Cool completely before eating

Banana Oatmeal Cookies

I have never in my life heard on banana oatmeal cookies until my step-father. He gave me the recipe one year for Christmas and it fastly became our family favorite and go too (well beside my chocolate chip cookies! YUM). I did mess with the recipe a bit and I love it this way. First, I took out the shortening and added butter (any fat will do), I also change the sugar to coconut sugar, but for this one I did not because my mother is allergic to coconuts so I kept the Christmas cookies basic organic cane sugar. I added vanilla to the recipe, because any good cookie needs a splash of vanilla, it makes the cookies amazing in my book!! I did not cook these cookies, I froze them for Christmas but once cookie they were amazing!!!

You Will Need:

6 Organic Ripened Bananas
1/2 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
2 Large Pasture Raised Eggs
2 tsp Organic Cinnamon
1 1/2 Cup Organic Butter, softened
1 tsp Organic Nutmeg
4 Cups Organic Oatmeal
3 Cups Organic Flour
2 Cups Organic Sugar (or coconut sugar)
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt



Add softened butter to your kitchenaid stand mixer


Add sugar to the softened butter; mix on low for 5 minutes or until well combined


Add mashed bananas, vanilla, and eggs mix on low until combined


Add the dry ingredients; add flour last, mix then add flour 


Mix to combine (it is that easy!)


You can freeze the dough like this for Christmas time, or whenever, that is what we LOVE doing, then we pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes

We Found Our Home!

We have been looking and looking at homes, and nothing seems to be available once we find the one we love! So decided to stop looking at homes already owned and started looking at one home community! And I can safely say WE FOUND OUR HOME! It is being built and I cannot wait to watch our home be built; every little detail we are apart of! It is so rewarding and we are so excited!! I will continue to get photos/videos of the house! The company that is building our home is call Centex and from what I have read they are a great company! So here goes!!! We are building a 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath 3700 sq foot house with basement (that needs finished but we will get to that later)! Here are some pictures of the model home, will continue to post others later on.
