Strawberry and Date Malted Loaf

The lighter taste and texture of strawberries creates a perfect balance to the heavier, metallic flavor of malted loaf. Add a bit of dates for extra richness and enjoy a slice with a cup of tea in the afternoon.

I am so excited to present you with my second recipe for a new group I joined called #twelveloaves. In this group we bake a bread every month with the addition of the monthly theme flavor or ingredient. This month we were asked to add malt.

Yeast breads are preferred but quick breads are also welcomed. Since I prepared this recipe quickly before running off on holiday I did a quick bread this month using a seasonal berry, strawberries, and dates.

Meals in a Jar: Lentil, Fereek, Thai Rice, Barley and Noodle Fusion Soup

We have all bought or contemplated buying one of those cute “soups in a jar” as gifts. Pretty layered rows of rice, lentils,  noodle and soup base can make for a satisfying and easy soup. Have you thought of making your own? How about going one step further and creating entire balanced meals in a jar? One new book, the Meals in Jar cookbook, claims to be able to accomplish such a feat? Is it really possible for the general mass?
