Well, it's been about 30 min. and they aren't browning much. Maybe I didn't dice them small enough. I did it by hand about 1/2 inch - is that too big?
Maybe 350 wasn't high enough to brown. :dunno:
I did crank it up to 375 and they turned out great!

Falvegas, both those recipes sound fabulous. I hope your family appreciates you! I don't have a clue who appreciates me. I know they keep showing up, and they're always happy but how do I know they're not using me...how does anybody? You've spoiled them, don't let them take you for granted. I think...

Re: Pumpkin Bread

I hope you'll hang onto this recipe and give it a try. I thought it was really good, especially since it's so darn easy. I love easy! On a side note, I think I posted my whole wheat bread recipe.

I found that it was still a little soft in the middle, at the end of the baking time, so I turned down the oven to 300 and gave it an extra 10 min. The kids could easily help out with this.

Have you ever made your own butter? I was reading a blog awhile back where she made it and says it is SO much better. I think I am going to try it. I guess you just put cream in a food processor and let it go. She said you here this "thump" and all at once it is butter. Then you drain the buttermil...

Re: Beer Bread!

This is more or less in the quick bread category for its method Martha and thus is simple and fast to prepare. There was an aroma of beer as I sliced into it but I could not taste it. It is what I think of as a "rustic" bread because of its weight. You could slather it with some hot pepper jelly to...

Re: Beer Bread!

No yeast, Martha. Just the baking powder and the bubbly in the beer give it a bit of a rise in the baking. It's heavier than a yeast bread. Can also be made with any bubbly drink...soft drinks etc. I like it because it's really easy and tastes really great, yes, it has a bit of a beer flavor...more...

Sorry Janny, it's been so long since I made it I don't remember. But the recipe says:
After a minimum of 6 hours, take a look at your yogurt. The longer you leave the yogurt, the thicker it will become (and the more 'tangy' it will taste!). We actually find 7 hours to be the perfect length of time.
