My Family’s favorite foods

One of my family’s favorite foods are crawfish ettouffee and  special yeast breads. My kids are all athletes so when they were teenagers they ate lots of whole grains  but also loved homemade raised doughnuts, cinnamon rolls and foccacia breads. Now that they have homes of their own, I would guess those are still their favorites for special occasions but they also like sourdough bread, sprouted wheat bread, 10 grain bread and oatmeal rolls.

Here is a sampling of what I have been baking lately: I  made a focaccia bread last week for Ashley and her family with caramelized onions, basil, asiago cheese shreds and the thinnest slices of tomatoes. Then on Sunday, I was suppose to make 100 cinnamon rolls for church but it was 30 below and the wind was whipping through the plains so it was cancelled but I already had the dough made. I went ahead and made some cinnamon rolls and put the rest of the dough in the refrigerator.  Dave and I braved the blizzard to take warm cinnamon rolls to our neighbors. With the left over dough, I made pans of focaccia bread to serve at a dinner and another pan went to the Super Bowl Party. The focaccia bread turned out much better than the game.  Everywhere I take focaccia bread, I gain a following.  I will post the recipe under breads.
