Contributed by Carol Smolinski.

I love savory offerings and also have a vegan cream cheese spread recipe I make that compliments this bread wonderfully.   more→

Cinnamon Rolls

This is a great rainy day project for kids of all ages. It’s a bit involved, with a number of steps, but none are complicated or difficult. Under adult supervision, kids are able to participate in nearly every step along the way. Rolling out the dough and sprinkling the filling are especially fun for little hands. And the results—warm, delectable cinnamon rolls that are far more wholesome than the ones from the mall or the supermarket—make the whole exercise worthwhile. more→
