Sunday Baking

My husband took it upon himself to bake some treats for himself (and for me, too) Sunday afternoon. Works for me!

We got a bread machine for a wedding present (almost four years ago ...) and, sadly, we don't use it as much as we should.

So we (really, Nate did all of the bread making) made cinnamon raisin bread to have for breakfast over the next week or so. (If you have a bread machine and want the recipe, let me know).

Nate eats a granola bar every day at work, and although the ones he eats are relatively healthy, he thought he'd try making them from scratch. We found this Alton Brown Granola Bar recipe that he used for the bars. We mostly followed the recipe exactly, except we also added some mini chocolate chips and flax seed and for the dried fruit, we used apples (how good are dried apples?!).

They turned out pretty good, but as we were talking today, we said next time we made them we'd add the wheat germ and flax seed later and not roast them with the oats (it ended up tasting a little burnt).
