Recipes, Links and Goats

 So last week was super busy and full of baking! I made Sourdough Crepes for the first time. They we're a hit! We made Cranberry Jelly, Sprouted Lentils, No- Churn Ice cream, and Soaked Pumpkin Bread!

You want the recipes, right?

Sourdough Crepes

1 cup sourdough starter
3 eggs
3 Tablespoons butter
pinch of salt
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons yogurt

I got this recipe from Wardeh at GNOWFGLINS. She has great instructions. I added yogurt to mine, which gave the crepes a nice flavor. We filled our crepes with fruit salad and topped them with Homemade yogurt and Organic honey! We fried our left over crepes and made the best tortilla chips ever!

Cranberry Jelly

4 cups frozen cranberries
1/2 cup honey
3 Tablespoons water

Cut cranberries in half, if you don't mind cold fingers! If you do mind, you can always smash them with your trusty potato smasher! In a sauce pan, stir together all ingredients. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. The cranberries will jell up on their own, so you will be left with a nice, thick jelly. Store in jars for future use! This is the easiest jelly recipe ever!

We sprouted lentils for the first time. They were different, but good! Wardeh will tell you all about it Here!

The No- Churn Ice Cream was from Food Renegade was a hit! We made ours vanilla, but she gives tons of variations!

Here it is, plain and pretty!
And here it is topped with almonds and cocoa powder!

The Soaked Pumpkin Bread was also from Wardeh! It was so delicious. We served it with our Cranberry Jelly of course!

And now for the goats! I bred my Kinder Doe, Annabell, with an awesome Kinder Buck, named Rufus! We are expecting kids in July! I wonder what the kids will look like.

Hope you all have a Great, Joy filled week! Layla
