Homemade Croutons Yeast Free - Delicious & Addicting!

After sharing my recipe for Yeast Free Rolls, I just had to share a few other delicious things that can be made with them. I love to make homemade croutons. They are simply addicting; great on salads, delicious in homemade soups, and perfect for eating right off the tray. These are super easy and a awesome way to use leftover rolls. Once you make these you will never go back to store brought ones. I love that they are crispy and not too hard like the store bought ones.

Okay, let's get making them!

As I noted in the recipe, I like to use parchment paper to line my baking sheets. My favorite is Kirkland's brand. Parchment paper makes easy clean up and keeps things from getting stuck on the pan. I use it all the time, it's a staple in my house. I also would like to recommend an organic avocado oil. It was a hard search to locate it but, Amazon doesn't disappoint. I purchase this brand and it is wonderful. Sometime it goes out of stock because it is that good and reasonable too! Lastly, I always use Kirkland's Sea Salt and Simply Organic's Italian Seasoning. I know that some do not have access to local health food stores so, I am providing the sources for your convenience,

I hope you are enjoying these yeast free recipes. I would love to hear all about things you love to make yeast free too!

Blessings,
Bridget

Yeast Free Rolls

Yeast Free Roll Recipe - Quick & Easy

Got  craving for bread but, suffer with a yeast sensitivity? I'm excited to share my latest discovery, Yeast Free Rolls! Your gonna love this recipe; it is easy and satisfying. These rolls are great served as a dinner roll, perfect for a sandwich, and a nice alternative for a hamburger bun.

The main key to these rolls is the timing during the baking process. If they cook to long they will take on a biscuit texture. So, unless your wanting a crunchy roll, take them out when they start to get golden on top. This is usually around 12 minutes.

It is best to allow them to cool before slicing, and of course they are best the day they are made! The recipe is so easy that you can make them in a moments notice though.

I used a my Kitchen-aid mixer but, any mixer that accommodates dough should work just fine.

Enjoy!

Eat Clean Tomato Sauce Recipe - Simple, Quick, & Delicious

Ah, sweet summer! I hope you all are settling down and enjoying some lazy days of summer. We are wrapping up some of our last homeschool lessons and plan to take a short break before we start back on our lessons. Today, I would like to share my delicious tomato sauce recipe. Yes, you could just buy it in a jar but, this one is so simple and tastes fabulous. You will be asking yourself why would I want too?

Making homemade tomato sauce is one of the most simple things to make. I always keep canned tomatoes in the pantry they are a staple in our house. They can be used for chili, salsa, Mexican beef bowl, Mexican rice, and more. I have listed below the recipe and and instructions. The recipe is super easy with an immersion blender because you can blend everything in the same pot. It works just fine with the blender; I just love not having to clean the blender. 😊

I am sure that this recipe will become one of your family favorites. It can be used as a pizza sauce too. If you run short on time you don't have to cook it for 30 minutes. This simple thickens the sauce and increases the flavor.

So, what do you think?

Blessings!

Homeschool Corner: Geography - Maine

April 08, 2018 0 Comments
Follow along with us as we learn about the 50 states on the Road Trip USA Series.
Welcome to Day 2 of our series "Road Trip United States". For those of you who are just joining us, we have been learning about the history of the United States and how states were formed. We are taking a learning road trip from the comforts of our own home. Today we learned that Maine was the twenty-third state.

Follow along with us as we learn about the 50 states on the Road Trip USA Series.

We are loving Kids Learn America! by Patricia Gordan & Reed Snow. They have made it most enjoyable to remember the capitals of each state. Does anyone enjoy learning these capitals? Well, my kids have embraced it due to the fun way it is presented in Kids Learn America! It can be difficult to remember the capitals of all the states, so I was delighted when I found this fun way to remember them. To remember Maine's capital they recommended imagining a lion with a shaggy mane with a gust of wind blowing it. The mane will help you remember Maine, and the gust of wind will help you remember Augusta. This is a cute way to remember the capitals.

Here are some things we learned about Maine:

Maine is home to more than 60 lighthouses. The oldest lighthouse is Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth. Visit PBS for a fun lighthouse craft.

Did you know that Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge is the nesting grounds to Puffins? Color the Puffins "Parrots of the Sea" with these coloring pages. You will find some interesting information about them here.

Guess where 90 percent of the lobster comes from? You guessed it Maine. Watch this interesting video about lobster.

Maine has more moose that any other state. Watch this informative video about moose.

On a fun note, don't blow your nose in public in Waterville, Maine, it's illegal.

I love the free printables from USA-Printables. I print them out and my 3rd grader colors them for his USA Notebook. It shows the capital, the state bird, and the state flower. Here is the link for the Maine coloring page.

Download my free PDF notebook cover to keep all your coloring pages inIt makes a nice keepsake memory too!

Learning is supposed to be fun, right? It is all about how you present the material and allowing kids to be hands on while learning. Children love being read to. If you find interesting things and present them in a fun way, they will love what they are learning. Allow your kids to learn what they are interested in. Don't feel like you have to do everything. A page here and there will enhance their learning without overwhelming them. Be hands on, do a lighthouse craft or imitate lobsters. These are things that they will retain.

Have fun creating memories with your child. This is a special cherished time.

Blessings,
Bridget
