Sandwich Bread With Flaxseed

I’m enjoying summer break way too much. I’m going to be so lost when school starts again next month! For now, I’m just soaking up the sun and low-humidity days, long walks, grill-outs at the park, frozen yogurt, and enough free time to make bread from scratch.
Sandwich Bread with Flaxseed- perfect bread for sandwiches or breakfast!I’m packing up to move at the end of this month. We’re moving across town so that we can get a pet-friendly apartment, which means we’re packing everything up, cleaning, and figuring out what to do with the 2-day gap between when we have to leave this apartment and when we can get into our new one. We’re doing it ALL for this creature:
JadeShe’s my West Highland White Terrier, and her name is Jade. It’s her favorite color. Jade’s going to be 12 this fall, and I miss having her around. After losing my beagle last summer, I’ve been wanting Jade around for comfort. She’s my baby now. I love her to pieces!
Anyways, back to this bread:

Meals I Make: Italian Sausage Pasta

This pasta comes together in a few minutes and tastes like a bite of Italy!

I’ve been on the hunt lately for easy summer meals that won’t require turning on the oven. Once that oven is on for 30 minutes, our little apartment becomes suffocatingly warm. Since our weather forecast here is in the upper 80s all week, I’m trying to avoid that. Michael suggested a pasta dish, so I bought a few ingredients and whipped this up. It tasted so good, I had to share!

Dessert, breakfast, and a meal are all covered in this list of 10 Pinterest recipes I love

I use Pinterest as a tool for finding new recipes, mostly. I can’t make a recipe unless I can see a picture of it, so Pinterest is like a lovely internet image search of fabulous recipes. Naturally, of the many I try, not all are winners. I adjust recipes all the time to suit what I have on hand or my personal preferences. I know I haven’t been blogging for very long (not on a consistent basis, at least), but here are my 10 favorite Pinterest recipes that I tried and enjoyed so much that I blogged about them! Follow me on Pinterest and I’ll let you know what recipes are actually worth making!

Meals I Make: Parmesan Tilapia and Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I know this blog is full of recipes that people might feel guilty about eating. Just remember it’s all about enjoying life and being healthy and happy! I’m not healthy unless I get in some homemade treats now and then. To balance that out, I tend to cook on the light side and we rarely eat out. I sometimes have lots of time to prepare detailed meals, but mostly I’m tired and just want supper to be ready in less than an hour (or less that 15 minutes…). I’m a quick cook, aka impatient, so I tend to cut down on prep work and find ways around things like thawing and multiple bowls. The microwave is my best friend!
