Cheesy Jalapeno Dutch Oven Bread #GayLeaMom

Ever since I bought my dutch oven I've been wanting to bake bread in it.  I had pinned some recipes but just never got around to it.  When I picked up a pack of Ivanhoe Monterey Jack with Red Bell and Jalapeno Peppers I knew what I was going to do with it!  I love freshly baked bread and it has been too long since I made some.  Baking bread requires a lot of time waiting for the dough to rise so a no knead Dutch Oven Bread was a perfect choice because you mix up the dough the night before, let it rise overnight and then bake the next day it in your Dutch easy is that?

Apple and Cheddar Scones {SRC}

Today is the day for The Secret Recipe Club reveal.  This month I was assigned Lavender and Lovage written by Karen.  Karen was born in South Africa and grew up in rural Northumbria which is in England.  Although she has lived all over the world, she currently resides in North Yorkshire and South West France.  Karen is currently writing a cookbook about British food, recipes, customs and traditions.  Browsing Karen's blog was a delight.  I absolutely love her photography.  It makes me feel like they were all taken at an old cottage somewhere.

Peach Scones

We all love to eat peaches but I rarely buy them because I find them so difficult to cut and take the pit out.  I've watched several YouTube videos and still haven't had any luck.  Today I'm sharing a Peach Scone recipe that uses canned California Cling Peaches.  I love the convenience of having good quality peaches all year long and the best part is they are ready to peeling or pitting involved!

Smashed Potatoes {SRC}

Today I am posting for The Secret Recipe Club.  This month I was assigned Karen's Kitchen Stories.  Karen lives in Southern California and works in HR.  Karen's blog is her way of documenting her recipes which is the exact reason why I started blogging!  She has tons of bread recipes so I immediately knew I was going to love her blog!  I love to bake bread and love the way the house smells after baking a loaf of bread.  But this month has been really busy and I knew I wasn't going to have time to bake bread.  So I decided to make Karen's recipe for Smashed Potatoes.

Today I am sharing a recipe which is made extra decadent with Gay Lea Whipped Cream.  Falooda is an Indian/Pakistani chilled dessert beverage.  It is one of my husband's favourite desserts although it had always been something I had avoided because of the black seeds at the bottom.  I was a very picky eater growing up and I couldn't get past those black seeds.  I had never even tried Falooda before I got married.  One year I decided I would give a try at making Falooda for my husband since he enjoyed it so much.  It turned out very well!  The seeds are the bottom are tukmalanga or basil seeds.  They are similar to chia seeds.  When they are soaked they expand and become jelly-like.  They can easily be found at an Indian grocery store.  The dominant flavour in Falooda is from Rooh Afza which is a sweet rose syrup that can also be found in Indian grocery stores.
