It was the day when we were finishing one of our 1000 pieces puzzle and we wanted a simple and light lunch.

So, my mother baked us the wonderful Chicken And Cheese Braid.

The golden brown crust is crunchy and the bread is delicious.

It was a very tasty lunch and we ate it with some salad.

Chicken And Cheese Braid is one of the tasty food that we can prepare for picnics and outings because it is not messy to eat.

Here are some photos of my mother’s Chicken and Cheese Braid.

Fasting sometimes make us think about food 🙂

And today, I’m going to write about home made crumpets or drop scones….

My mother says that crumpets are very easy to make.

The other day when my mother was in a hurry to go out for some groceries she baked crumpets for our early lunch.

You’ll only need flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, eggs, butter and milk or buttermilk.

My mother mixed the ingredients, let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes and cook them.

Yummy! Crumpet with honey and whipped cream.

They are really tasty on their own or we can eat them with butter, jam, ice cream or anything that we like.

I topped them with whipped cream and honey and they tasted really good.

Crumpets looks like little pancakes but they taste different; and I prefer crumpets than pancakes.

I wish I can have more of those delicious and tasty crumpets…..

I am enjoying my crumpet.

Cinnamon Bread

We bake our own breads and they are much more tastier and healthier than the ones from the grocery stores or the local bakeries.

And I love the aroma of freshly baked breads.

My mother bakes all kinds of breads and one of them is Cinnamon Bread.

Cinnamon Bread is very tasty and it is tastier if we toast the bread and eat them with butter and cinnamon sugar.

It is beautiful too because it have swirls in the middle of the loaf.

Anyway, even though I love cinnamons and I enjoy eating Cinnamon Bread, I actually prefer the whole wheat bread that I made.

My mother taught me how to make the whole wheat bread named, The Grant Loaf because it is one of the easiest bread to make 🙂

Apart from Cinnamon Bread, my mother also made Cinnamon Buns for us to enjoy.

Freshly Baked Cinnamon Buns!
Hot and freshly baked Cinnamon Buns! Nice on its own or we can glanced it for  sweeter bites.

My First Bread, ‘The Grant Loaf’

Homemade breads are very delicious.

My mother always bakes all kinds of tasty breads like olive bread, cinnamon loaf, Pan Mistura, naan, pita, cornbread and others.

I have always wanted to bake something too, just like my mother and my big sisters.

Finally, on December 18, 2012, I baked my first bread with a little help from my mother.

I was so happy when my mother told me that she was going to teach me how to bake a bread.

It was a wholewheat bread named, The Grant Loaf.

The recipe was from a recipe book given to my big sisters and I by my late great grandfather, named ‘Cooking With Kids’.

First I have to wash my hands with soap and water.

After mixing the ingredients, I kneaded the dough and the dough stuck to my fingers 🙂

I was kneading the dough.

It was fun!

After that, we let the dough rest until it rose twice of its size. 

The dough rose up beautifully.

Then my mother helped me to put the bread in the oven.

It was so delicious and it is a healthy bread because it uses wholewheat flour instead of white flour.

I am so proud of my first bread.

Yummy Apple Cake

Yesterday, my big sister, Kaman baked an apple cake.

I really love the cake.

The cake was so moist and so tasty.

That was Kaman’s third cake, her first cake was a sponge cake and her second cake was a pound cake.

The apple cake recipe was from Fabio Viviani and Fabio named the cake, Fabio’s Apple Cake.

My mother says that this cake is very special because it uses olive oil instead of butter and lots of sweet red apples.

I guess Fabio uses olive oil because Fabio came to America from Italy and there are lots of olive trees in the Mediterranean countries.

Anyway the apple cake was very, very tasty and it is surely a healthy cake because olive oil is good for our health.

I enjoyed the cake more than I enjoyed any other cakes.
