Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Crockpot Bread, Take II

Remember last week's attempt at crockpot bread?  Lesson learned:  don't try to adjust too many things at once.  This week, I stuck with my favorite wheat bread recipe, and merely tried baking it in the crockpot. 



Though I originally found the bread recipe online on the Pleasant Hill Grain website, I no longer see the recipe there.  The original recipe was written for 2, 4, or 6 loaves, made in a Bosch Universal Mixer.  I adapted the recipe to make 1 loaf, and I mixed it in a KitchenAid mixer.

Whole Wheat Bread

To bake in crockpot, first check to make sure your bread pan will fit in your crockpot.  I have a large oval crockpot, and my bread pan just fits.  Crumple up some aluminum foil and place in the bottom of the crockpot.  Place lid on crock, then turn crockpot on high to warm up.  Grease bread pan.

Meanwhile, in mixer, put 1-1/4 c. hot water, 1 T. yeast, 1/8 c. oil, 1/8 c. honey, 1 T. vital wheat gluten, 1/2 T. dough enhancer, 1/2 T. salt, and 3 cups wheat flour. Mix to combine.  An additional 1/2 to 1 cup of flour will probably need to be added.  Add the flour until the dough comes clean off the sides of the mixing bowl.  The dough will naturally start to cling together into a ball.


Continue mixing until the bread becomes smooth and not so sticky, about 4 minutes.  Place dough into prepared bread pan, then place bread pan in crockpot.  Bake on high for 3 hours.
 Thanks for fresh homemade bread.

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Ten Things of Thankful: Nearly Christmas Edition

This is a busy time of year, and though it isn't as busy for me as it has been in past years, my to-do list still seems longer than the hours in the days. However, I find that when I spend time to focus on the reason for the season, I can feel the joy of Christmas and the tasks-at-hand fall back into their proper place. This week I had the opportunity to attend some wonderful events, and I'd love to take you along for a virtual tour:

Let's start at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, last Friday night. The Tabernacle Choir joined with the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Bells on Temple Square, along with dancers and guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas, to present a spectacular Christmas concert. Although I couldn't record any of the performance, the following 2-minute video from the church provides an overview:




The last time John and I had attended a Christmas concert by the Tabernacle Choir, they were still holding those conc…

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement. 
I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me.
My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis.
When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a parent of one of my dad's students. 
Hello, Mrs. _______. How can I help you? . . . (an irate woman's voice is h…
