This is easy! I didn't have the everything topping so I used 2 tbsp of Harvest Grains in the bread and 1 tbsp of poppy seeds for the top. My GF is using all sesame seeds in hers.

No-Knead Everything Bread
(This is an artisan bread)

2-1/4 cups cool water
5-1/2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp instant yeast
2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp Everything Bread and Bagel

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp Everything Bread and Bagel

1) Mix the dough ingredients in a large bowl to make a sticky dough. Or beat in a stand mixer for 3 minutes.
2) Cover with plastic wrap, and let rest at room temperature overnight, or for at least 8 hours; the dough will become bubbly and rise quite a
bit, so make sure it's in a large bowl.
3) Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface, and form it into a log or round loaf to fit your 14" to 15" long lidded stoneware baker, or 9" to 10" round lidded baking crock.
4) Place the dough in the lightly greased pan, smooth-side up.
5) Cover and let rise at room temperature for about 2 hours, until a slight indentation remains when you poke it with your finger.
6) Just before baking, make several slashes to allow for expansion.
Spritz or brush the dough with water and sprinkle with about 1 tablespoon Everything topping.
7) Place the bread in a cold oven, and set the temperature to 450°F.
8) Bake the bread for 50 minutes, then remove the lid and continue to bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, until it's deep brown in color, and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers about 205°F.
9) Remove the bread from the oven, turn it onto a rack, and cool before slicing.

Overnight Crock Pot Oatmeal

1 cup steel cut oats
4 cups water (if using a slow cooker-liner decrease-the water to 3 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup half and half or milk
1 cup dried fruit of choice (optional) Apples, Raisins, Cranberries, Apricots, etc
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp cinnamon sugar

[Note: Toppings to add before serving:
Butter, sugar, honey, splenda, cinnamon, nuts, raisins, fresh diced apples, chocolate chips, pancake syrup or anything else you like!]
First off find a bowl that will hold four cups of liquid, and fit inside your crock pot with the lid on. Measure out one cup of Steel cut oats. Pour that into the inner bowl. Add the four cups of water, milk or half and half, brown sugar, vanilla, butter and cinnamon sugar. If you would like to add dried fruit or a cut up apple the add it as well. Fill the crock with water to about halfway. Set the inner bowl in the crock and see how high the water rises. Add more water in the crock if necessary. Try to match it so that the water reaches about the same height on the outside of the oats bowl or just below the bowl. Place the lid on your crock pot. Set on low (I set mine on warm) and go to bed. When you get up the next morning your oatmeal should be cooked perfectly in that steamy water bath.

Sriracha Sauce Recipe

1½ pounds fresh red Jalapeño peppers, stemmed, seeded, and roughly chopped
8 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
? cup apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons tomato paste
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons Paleo-friendly fish sauce (Red Boat!)
1½ teaspoons kosher salt

First, prep your veggies. Cut off stem end, and de-seed and remove pith, for a not too hot sauce.
I’ve found that removing the seeds and most of the ribs from the jalapeno peppers produces a sauce of moderate heat. Feel free to keep the ribs and seeds, and/or use hotter peppers (like Serrano or even Lumbre peppers).
Throw everything into a high-speed blender
Purée until smooth
Pour the purée into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
As soon as it boils, reduce the heat to low and maintain a simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Pro tip: Use gloves when handling the peppers to avoid burning your hands and eyes. I learned the hard way.

Chili Garlic Sauce Recipe

8 ounces Fresno chilies
6 cloves of garlic peeled
2½ tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar or distilled white vinegar
¾ teaspoon salt

De-stem and chop Fresno chilies and place in a food processor along with the seeds. The more seeds you add the spicier it will be.
Add the garlic, vinegar and salt. Blitz until you get a slightly coarse paste.
Pour pureed chile mixture into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat and then lower the heat to a gentle simmer. Simmer gently for 7-10 minutes or until it not longer has a raw scent.
If you want you’re sauce finer, then place it back in the food processor at this point and blitz it a few more times.
You may serve it immediately but it’s best after the flavors have had at least 4 hours to meld; overnight preferably.

Note about rice vinegar: Make sure you get unseasoned rice vinegar, there are types of rice vinegar called seasoned rice vinegar that have added sugar.

Note about seeds from the chilies: I used all of the seeds and it was just fine for me, quite spicy, but tolerable. If you’re afraid of it being too spicy then use only half of the seeds.

Upon moving to Southern California many years ago from an area in the country where it was hard to grow your own fruit we decided to try every fruit that we could. One of my favorites that I wanted to raise was peaches. I did have luck with the small peach tree but I learned something the hard way. I left the peaches on the tree until what I felt were tree ripened only to find out that when I sliced them open they were spoiled around the pit and no good. I usually shopped at the Fullerton, California farmers market where I came upon a farmer that was selling gorgeous peaches. I asked him what I had done wrong. He said that you can not let peaches completely ripe on the tree and that they must be a little hard when picking and then be ripened off the tree. Lesson learned. Also living in that area I found that avocados don't ripen on the trees either. They must ripened off the tree. So in purchasing them hold them in the palm of your hand and give a small squeeze. If they are slightly soft they will be ready in a short time. If you want to buy them for later use just buy the hard ones. They are just as good and will ripen in a short time. By the way the black Hass are the best.

Apple Cake Recipes

Erma requested apple cake recipes with caramel frosting in the 2/24 newsletter. The second recipe may not meet your needs, but it is delicious and always a huge hit. It is also very easy to make. You can purchase a baked angel food cake at your grocery store, if you do not have time to bake one. The first recipe appeared in a June 2010 newsletter compliments of Judy Buffalo. I have other recipes I will submit once I see what others have shared.

Apple Cake with a Caramel Frosting.
I generally use:
1 yellow cake mix prepared to box directions

3 cups of diced apples
1 tbs lemon juice

Mix and stir into apples then into prepared mix:
1 Tbs cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
2 Tbs brown sugar

Bake in a 9 x 13 pan according to box directions.
When cool spread with following frosting.

This is one of those 'lick your fingers' frostings.

Caramel Frosting
In a saucepan melt 1/2 cup butter. Stir in 1 cup brown sugar. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly and reduce heat to low.

Stir in 1/2 cup milk and bring up to a boil. Stir for 2 minutes then remove from heat.
Cool to lukewarm, about 30 minutes. Pour into a bowl.

Stir in 3 cups powdered sugar and 1/4 cup milk. Beat with a hand mixer on low about 6 minutes until light and fluffy.

If too stiff add 1 tsp milk at a time to get the right consistency. If too watery add additional powdered sugar on low until it reaches the right consistency.

Store in refrigerator for 15 min to firm up then frost cake.

Caramel Apple Dessert

1 can apple pie filling
1 angel food cake mix
2 pkgs. (3.4 oz. each) vanilla instant pudding
3 cups cold milk
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 tub (16 oz.) Cool Whip, thawed
1 jar (12 oz.) caramel topping
cinnamon (or apple pie spice) for garnish

Bake angel food cake as directed on the box, and cool completely. Cut into bite sized cubes, and put in a deep 9 x 13 inch dish or very large bowl. Drizzle with half the caramel topping. Beat together in large bowl, the pudding mixes and cold milk, and beat in the softened cream cheese till smooth, using low speed of electric mixer.

Fold half of the Cool Whip into the pudding mixture. Pour over the cake cubes and caramel topping. Spoon apple pie filling evenly over the top. Top with remaining

Cool Whip. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon, or apple pie spice, and drizzle with the remainder of the caramel topping. Chill several hours.

I have a question for Mary J about Soft Pineapple Cookies in the Feb.24, 2014 newsletter, What size can crushed pineapple and do you drain juice or leave undrained and how many does the recipe make? They sound so good and I can’t wait to make them.Thank you. It is hard trying to keep warm in the Northeast, waiting for warm weather.
Sher in Pa

Sher, the crushed pineapple is a short can. It does need to be drained.
These cookies are yummy.
