A friend told me she just made Apple Crisp, and ate the batch in one sitting. It made me hungry. I checked the kitchen, and found the ingredients. The recipe is modified from many sources: First I peeled, cored, dewormed, and sliced eight slightly bruised apples. I added the juice of one lime to prevent the apples from browning, then the seeds from one pomegranate. The apple slices and pomegranate seeds were layered into a buttered glass casserole dish (8 x 13 inch). While preparing the topping, the oven was preheated to 375° F (190° C). I prepared the topping from sprouted wheat flour (3/4 cup), rolled oats (3/4 cup), maple syrup (1/2 cup), walnut oil (1/4 cup), cinnamon powder (1 tbs), clove powder (1 tsp), ginger powder (1 tsp), and nutmeg powder (1 tsp). The topping ingredients were mixed by hand and then layered over the apple slices and pomegranate seeds. The batch was baked in the preheated 375° F oven for 45 minutes (until the topping was brown and crispy). I had a hard time waiting for it to cool down to eat.

Thanks to Chloé for the suggestion to use Maple Syrup and Walnut Oil.
Hearty Rye Bread Recipe: Rye Flour (1 cup); Bread Flour (1 cup); Whole Wheat Flour (1 cup); Sprouted Wheat Flour (1/2 cup); Flax Seed (1/4 cup); Chia Seed (1 tbs); Dill Seed (1 tbs); Anise Seed (1 tbs); Caraway Seed (1 tbs); Fennel Seed (1 tbs); brown sugar (1 tbs); honey (2 tbs); dry milk (1/4 cup); cocoa (1 tbs); instant coffee (1 tbs); salt (2 tsp); egg (1 large); flax oil (2 tbs); water (1 1/2 cup) molasses (1/4 cup). Above ingredients minus the molasses added to Panasonic Bread Bakery. Yeast (2 tsp) added to yeast hopper and the unit set for Whole Wheat Bread (Rapid) and started. Once the yeast had been added, and the mixer started the molasses was added. Three hours later, the loaf of bread was removed and allowed to cool.
The center was too moist (somewhat gummy). Probably due to using honey. Next time, I will cut back on the amount of water (or eliminate the honey).
Home Cooking: Stone Soup and Hearty Rye & Whole Wheat Bread.
When I woke up this morning, it was snowing. There was 4-6 inches on the ground and still snowing. I didn’t need to go out and decided to make some stone soup with leftovers in the refrigerator.
Stone Soup Recipe: 1 Bag (26 oz) Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grains and Beans Soup Mix, Water (8 quarts), Knorr Chicken Flavor Bouillon (8 tbs), 2 Chopped Red Onions, 1 Chopped Celery Heart, 8 Chopped Garlic Cloves, and all of the leftover pork roast, chicken, and rib-roast in the fridge chopped into small pieces. Brought to a boil, then simmered for 4 hours. When done enough to feed an army… More leftovers to be frozen. Someday maybe I will learn to cook for one.
