I found these two recipes online and they sounded perfect. What can go wrong with bread that involves sweetened condensed milk? Nothing if you ask me! :)
|Simple Crockpot Vegetable Soup|
Simple Crockpot Vegetable Soup
It’s a fast & easy recipe today. You chop & dump into your crockpot, let it do the rest for you. It’s perfect for a meatless dish & it tastes as good as it smells cooking. My, Oh My, does it taste good. Never knew my veggies could be so tempting.
What You Need
6 Cups Water (I used 2 cups homemade chicken broth + 4 cups water)
1 ½ Cups Tomato Puree (I used one 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes)
1 Celery Stalk chopped
3/4 Cup of Corn
3/4 Cup of Peas (I added at the end)
3 Carrots diced
2 Medium Potatoes diced into small cubes
½ Red Onion, finely chopped (I used sandwich bag of frozen carmelized onion)
1 Teaspoon Pepper
1 ½ Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
2–3 Garlic Cloves (minced)
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil (for sauteing the onions)
6 ounces of small shaped noodles (you must boil, drain, & add these to your finished soup)
You will need to saute your onions in the Olive Oil just until they are translucent. Before adding them into the Crockpot.
Cook in your Crockpot for 5–6 hours on high.
HOWEVER, wait until after you have cooked the soup for 5–6 hours on high before adding your already boiled noodles (we like to add ones that are different shapes) to the soup.
You will want to cook this in a 6 quart size crockpot or larger. It makes 12 servings, so if you wanted you adjust the recipe to feed a smaller lot. With our gang here this feed us with leftovers.
After it is done cooking & you have added your noodles you can then add additional seasoning to taste as you please or keep it as!
|Sweet Milk Bread|
Decadent Sweet Milk Bread (or Homemade 'King's Hawaiian') by Frugal Dr. Mom
1 cup of water
½ cup of sweetened condensed milk *I used fat-free
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of butter
3 1/3 cups of bread flour*
2 teaspoons of yeast
Put ingredients in bread machine and set for dough cycle. When complete, remove and separate into three sections. Roll each out like snakes and mesh ends together. Braid and press ends together. Place in baking dish and allow to rise for 25-30 minutes. (Here's a little trick: before braiding your bread, heat your oven to 175 degrees and then turn off. Put your braided bread in the warmed oven to rise.) Brush melted butter or egg white on top after rising. Bake at 340 for 30-45 minutes, until top is golden brown.
