On Thursday, Joy from The Herbed Kitchen mentioned the molasses bread. From that moment on, it was all I could thing about. Since it was a snow day for the girl, I knew we weren't going far for awhile. There was lots of time to make bread, which would be a perfect accompaniment to the stew I had in the slow cooker.
Google is a friend of mine when it comes to cooking. How did our moms live without it? The search results for molasses bread gave me a number of options but I went with the recipe for Oats and Molasses Bread from Canadian Living magazine. I like that it has oats in it. It makes it quite hardy. At first I was worried it wasn't rising enough but I didn't have to; it turned out two nice loaves. It was delicious with the stew but even better the next day with some freezer jam slathered on it.
I have a question for you Foodies. I have my favorite recipes all over the place: here on the blog, saved to my hard drive, bookmarked, in cookbooks and in magazines all over the house. I tend to use them a lot but never remember where I put them. What I want to do is copy them to my computer with the photos I've taken and maybe print them out. I'm looking for an easy program to do it. I want it to be as easy as writing a blog post. Just an initial setup and then *blamo!* I'm good to go. Do you have a suggestion for how to do this?
