A new favorite

(posted by Emily)

We are always looking for new dinner ideas and ever since canning day, we've tried to find ways to eat all of our delicious food! Jennie reignited our love for almond feta that day, and one of our new favorite dinners is almond feta served with nectarine jam and nectarine chutney, spread on toast. 

I've made batches of the cheeze in two different ways--processing the almonds into a flour first and just mixing the slivers with the other ingredients. I definitely recommend getting them ground up first, as it leads to a smoother cheeze. This feta is seriously one of the easiest nut cheeses to make--you need to try it!

We have had a variety of bread maker adventures since purchasing our machine this spring. I hesitated to post a recipe until we had the kinks worked out and here's what I've discovered......Bob's Red Mill makes a GF bread mix that can be used in your bread maker :) So, all experimenting has ceased for now, and we're sticking with what works! The bread is hearty and delicious, and with the bread maker, couldn't be easier to make. A special thanks to Sue (Rick's mom) for sending packs of the mix to us from Wegmans--that's the only store we've ever seen it at!

A simple dinner, but so tasty. I think this would be a great party appetizer, too! Let us know if you try it!
