Baking with MGCC

Today I baked some delicious
healthy bread!
Have I mentioned how much I love baking
bread of late?
This recipe comes from one of my favourite
cookbooks....Mennonite Girls Can Cook!
It's on Page 140.

Sunflower, Flaxseed Bread by Judy!
I even threw in a handful of Pumpkin Seeds.

This will be the perfect bread to compliment
the venison summer sausage that one 
of our "hunter" neighbours gifted us with this week!

That is, if there's any bread left by supper time.

Spring has finally arrived - the trees are budding,
the birds are earnestly nesting, the Spring
flowers are blooming and the rhubarb looks

Old fashioned Lungwort from my friend Ruth!

Spring has sprung when these beauties bloom!

Rhubarb - my favourite plant!

Today The Mennonite Girls that Can Cook
 are launching their beautiful
new book 
and early next week right here in Ontario!


I can't wait to try making some of the 
recipes from their new book.

Till next time ...... hanging out the wash and smelling the bread.....smilin'
Happy Birthday to some special people today!


  1. I sure do hope I see you next week!

  2. Venison sausages sound yummy. I've never had them, but I bet they are delicious. I've had venison roast ... So good.

  3. Your bread looks perfectly delicious! I also have their cookbook and love to spend time drooling over the pictures!
    By the way, I love your photographs on your blog.

  4. That bread looks wonderful - I can just imagine a thick slice with fresh, unsalted butter. Yummy!

  5. Oh it would be great if you can see Lovella and Anneliese! Your bread looks fabulous!


Summer in Full Swing!

It's official! Summer has arrived in SW Ontario. It has been sweltering hot, the Spring flowers have bloomed and are long gone. ...
