I stopped using dryer sheets a year ago after making these dryer balls out of wool yarn. I think it was right around the time I learned how to knit. They’re very easy to make and they really do work. They get stuck in my clothes once in a while but they do a pretty good job of eliminating static. Click here to find directions on how to make your own at goodmama.com.
Ooops. I almost forgot to post this one and it should not be forgotten. Once that Challah bread (recipe posted earlier) was getting stale I sliced up some 3/4 inch thick slices and made some incredible french toast. Maple syrup not required.
6-8 slices challah bread, 3/4″ thick
1/2 c. whole milk
1/4 c. apple cider
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
butter to grease pan
Whisk eggs through cinnamon in pie pan. Heat a large skillet or griddle. Melt a small pat of butter on surface, covering entire area. Dip bread slices in egg mix letting soak for at least 5-7 seconds on each side. Cook on greased pan till golden brown on each side. Serve with syrup and butter if desired. Breakfast is served baby.
Here’s another easy peasy recipe to try. It’s a very moist cake and very flavorful. It has that nice hint of orange and would be a very tasty gift for someone this holiday season.
1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp kosher salt
2 large eggs
3/4 c whole milk
1/2 c olive oil
2 tsp orange zest
Preheat oven to 325. Oil and flour a 9-inch loaf pan. Whisk first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.
In another bowl, whisk eggs, milk, olive oil and orange zest to blend. Gradually whisk this into the flour mixture. Scrape into your loaf pan.
Bake about 60-65 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Check it, mine was ready a good 15 minutes early. Cool in pan, on rack, for 20 minutes, then cool completely on rack.
