Yummy! One of the things my daughter gave me was a Magic Bullet (as-seen-on-TV) and I used it to make banana nut muffins. Yummy again! I love kitchen gadgets!
Happy New Year to all and I pray that each of you and your families will be blessed with good health as well as material and spiritual blessings.
I love kitchen gadgets too, Val- but I've never heard of Dutch Oven Bread. I just did a google search and it sounds great! Is your Dutch Oven cast iron or stoneware?
It sounds like everyone had a nice Christmas - can you believe it's here and gone already?
We started a new tradition this year. Our family hosts Christmas for any of our friends who don't have family in town - or at least that is how it started LOL!. But we had so much fun that one family choose to come here instead of their local family LOL. This year I took a piece of plain fabric (a lightweight canvas-like fabric I had stashed in the basement). I put a Sharpie marker at each place setting and encouraged everyone to sign and doodle. It is SO great!! So many great sentiments and jokes - I plan to use it again next year with different colored sharpies.
