Fresh Bread & Homemade Jam & Jelly




 Do you like homemade bread?
I found a really delicious and very easy no-knead recipe on 
I used stone ground whole wheat flour for these two loaves.
I made the Rosemary Bread once, and it was delicious.
This is a very good recipe as
it always comes out light and very nice.



I did add a couple of tablespoons of oil to the recipe.
The oil helps it to brown nicely when making toast.
My husband likes to eat it in the morning, toasted.
I made this several times in September,
The cooler weather puts me in the mood for fresh bread and a hearty soup. 





And what is better than jam or jelly on a 
slice of fresh bread?
I made freezer rhubarb/strawberry jam from the 
last of our rhubarb. 
My friend Alaine was kind enough to give me the grapes 
for a batch of jelly.
I didn't save the recipes that I used for these, so I'm afraid I can't pass them on.

++++++++++++++++++++++

The weather has been very changeable right lately, but it was up to 19 deg. Celsius by 3 pm today.
I like that!

Enjoy your week, my friends!
And, as always, thank you for coming by and leaving a sweet comment.
And thanks so much for all of the kind comments on my 
last post, it was so good to read your comments.
Our God is indeed a miracle working GOD!!!

Cindy I totally agree with you. Cooler weather puts me in the mood for home made bread, soups and stews. I've had all three in the last week or so. Your bread looks lovely and so do your jams and jellies. My rhubarb didn't grow. I had an old bulb. I guess it was too old or something. I had hoped to make rhubarb pies or jam.

Nights cool; daytime, pleasant warm here. Definitely bread and soup weather here, too :)

Your loaf looks very inviting. I can almost smell it just looking at the picture...

The bread looks good. it's definitely the time of year to be baking bread and making soup! ANd your jams look great too. Just the other night I taught our young mentor women how to bake bread! It was great fun.

Homemade bread and jam YUMMY!!

Pamela Gordon said...

There's nothing like home made bread and jam is there? I don't bake bread but should try Faye's recipe. It's going to be 21 here today with sunny skies. It's been a really nice week. Enjoy your day, Cindy. Hugs, Pam

Your bread look delicious.
No knead bread is just what I need.
I can never get it to raise!
Your sweet home always looks beautiful in the background of your photos.

Little Penpen said...

Yum... I can almost smell the bread! I have a recipe for bread I want to try soon. I've never been a bread maker, so this should be interesting. :)

Robin Johnson said...

I haven't had fresh baked bread in ages. I'll have to give the recipe a try. Looks yummy!

Do I like bread?! I'm a carb girl and this look delish - plus I heart rosemary!

I love cooler weather too. Fresh bread and soup are our favorite to have during the winter. Yummy.

I just made banana bread. Smelled so good and warmed the house up. :-)

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Oh, your bread looks YUMMY! I could live on bread and it must be jam! But I have to stay away...when I eat bread it immediately attaches to my bottom or my belly and it doesn't look too good either place!
Blessings,
Cindy

Hi Cindy, I started making my own bread this summer and I love how my bread is turning out. I used a website called thefreshloaf.com and they have two loaf recipes for starter bakers and I tried them both, they are AMAZING! My favourite which I have yet try is a french boule which needs a sour dough starter...I haven't ever made my own Jam, sounds delicious, but homemade soup YES! Have a lovely weekend! Sharon

❁Velma ~Down Our Country Road❁ said...

Oh, I can almost smell your lovely bread!! There's nothing like the aroma of fresh bread baking, is there? I haven't made any bread in a while. Maybe it's because I could eat the whole loaf all by myself...in one or two or maybe three sittings!! LOL
But, I may have to give in and try this recipe. Thank you for sharing. Have a great weekend!

Blackberry Lane said...

The breads and jams look delicious. Hope you have success finding a good sweet pot. cobbler recipe. Enjoy the weekend.

Jesh St Germain said...

Thanks for the link to the recipe - would love to make home made bread, but it's always the kneading that deters me:)
Thank you for commenting on my blog post of Cinque Terre last week!

ScrapbookingButterfly said...

Mmmmmm...love the cooler, fresher days of autumn that inspire warmer meals of soups and stews. I can almost smell the bread baking over here! Might just be time for me to do some baking too! Glad the jelly turned out and the grapes were put to such good use. Have a most lovely weekend!

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Thank you sweet lady for the bread récipe. I love to make bread and I often use my KAid and it works perfect, I just don't knead by hand, ever! I also love it with jams too! Thanks for coming over and leaving me such sweet and kind comment. Big hugs,
FABBY

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Sounds so good! I tend to eat differently in cooler weather, too...more soups ans stews. Thanks so much for stopping by, Cindy!

Your kitchen is adorable!

Your kitchen is adorable!

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

Homebread! The smell of it in the kitchen is like nothing else.

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

Well yum! We usually use our breadmaker to make bread - sometimes we bake it in the oven but mostly we just put the ingredients in and forget about it :) The jam sounds yummy too!

Corn in my Coffee-Pot said...

Your bread and jams look delicious.
I get in the mood to cook when the weather starts to turn cool, too. Today,we had cool weather blow in and it got down to 57°F for us by evening...
I saw your blog was mentioned at Cozy Little House...
well, why not! You HAVE A COZY LITTLE HOUSE! :)
blessing to you Cindy--
Pat

Pondside said...

There are all sorts of delicious breakfasts, but surely homemade bread, toasted and dripping with butter and homemade jelly/jam has to be among the best!

Martha Ellen said...

Love your cozy kitchen and the bread and jam look delish!

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

I just made a pot of soup yesterday but didn't make any bread...and I wish I had thought of it! Going to look at your bread recipe! It's been raining here for days but I'm hopeful tomorrow will be nice. Fingers crossed. :o)

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

I just read the bread recipe. Do you divide yours into two loaves or just make one?

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

I love homemade bread! I just made some a couple of weeks ago and my mom just happened to bring us some of her homemade freezer strawberry jam that same day! Perfect timing. :) Your bread looks delicious!

Shelia said...

Hi sweet Cindy! Oh, your bread looks so good and I can almost smell it. Thank you for your sweet and kind words to me. I did scroll down and read your post about the family running across the street. I agree with you, sounds like an angel saved the little girls life. I've experienced instances that are just unexplainable and I know God had intervened. Yes, there is power in the name of Jesus. How can anyone live without a relationship with Him? I don't even want to know for a second.
You are the sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Faye sent me, Cindy! I adore Faye and her blog, and I enjoyed my visit. I am checking out all the links in her latest post. I must try this bread. Your jams look like jewels lined up there. So good. xo

Sarah said...

Cindy your bread and jam sound yummy. I made some damson jelly yesterday. Lovely post. Please feel free to visit me.

Wendy @ Ravenwood Whimzies said...

Good morning Cindy - I'm a new follower - Faye sent me over and I couldn't wait to check out your blog.

Chandra said...

I've never made homemade bread, but a friend's husband makes it, and I've been wanting to try. Do you have any tips/tricks for a first time bread baker?

Mmmm i love gall for these reasons!! I recently made bread for the first time too, no kneading needed! It turned out great and was a hit with my hubby! I need your rosemary bread recipe, sounds delightful! :)
