Fresh baked bread is a magical thing. But baking it at home without a bread machine can be a long process that is rarely compatible with a full-time job. I’ve adapted Michael Smith’s Country Bread recipe to keep my family of four in bread all week. I increased amounts to produce two loaves, eliminated the kneading, and minimized the number of tools so there is less washing up. If you can spare 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening this one might turn you into a bread maker, too.

It’s a new kind of cookie exchange! This holiday season consider doing a cookie auction with your workplace and donate the proceeds to good cause. One of my favourite charities is Holiday Helpers. Last year they raised enough funds to give 382 families a fully decorated tree, grocery cards for a turkey dinner, and customized holiday gifts for each member of the family!
