Quilt With Us


Recipes to Quilt By

Since we all love to quilt and quilting time is so valuable, I thought it would be nice to share quick and easy recipies that are tried and true. Less time in the kitchen means more time in the sewing room. Prerequisite: quick, easy and YUMMY!

Let's Help Each Other

If you're like me you need help around the house to make more time to quilt. One of my most dreaded chores is to come up with something for dinner. I hear this a lot when I'm with my friends so I know it's not just me. In this group we want to help each other to create more time to quilt so, the prerequisite will be quick and easy, tried and true recipies. You need to rememeber, Martha Stewart doesn't live here. I like some of the things she does, but let's be serious, her recipies are CRAZY. Lots of ingredients and 74 steps. We want EASY, QUICK but most of all YUMMY. Just imagine how happy the family will be after getting a good meal. I know when I feed my hubby a great meal I don't have any guilty feelings about spending several hours quilting, and he kinda leaves me alone. Now that's really the treat. Sooo......let's get started.
If we would all click on "start discussion" and copy/paste your recipe there, we will have them all in the same place and won't have to scroll thru tons of posts to find them.

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Welcome Cheryl.....there doesn't seem to be much activity in this group lately, but there are some good recipes here.

There is another recipe group also.....Quiltmakers Best of the Best Recipes All Year Long....but it's been pretty quiet too.

Hi, I just joined this group and Debbie that bread sounds great.  I love fresh bread, not that I should be eating it all the time, but soooooo good.

Comment by Debbie Snyder/WA on March 21, 2012 at 5:38am

Okay ladies:  Here's the bread recipe:

3 cups water about 100 degrees

1-1/2 tablespoons yeast (2 packets)

1-1/2 tablespoons coarse salt

6 1/2 cups flour regular unbleached white all purpose flour

Disolve salt water and yeast together. Add flour all at once. i mix with yeast hook on kitchenaid mixer. This is a really wet dough and will look gooey.  Move dough to food safe container NOT air tight. (cover) Allow to rise about 2 hours and then put in fridge.  When ready to have fresh bread, take out a clump the size of a grapefruit and cloak for about 45 seconds. No need to Knead.  Form a ball and put in on a cornmeal covered pizza peel.  Let rise about 40 minutes  to two hours.  Preheat over to 450 degrees and heat up baking stone if you have one.  Dust top of bread with flour and slash several time. Slide dough from peel onto stone.  Put a broiler pan with 1-2 cups water on bottom oven shelf under baking stone (baking with steam make a huge difference).  Bake for 30 minutes.    All this should take about 5 minutes to do other than the rise time.  go to youtube and search for cloaking dough and watch a few videos.  It helped me.  I would suggest getting the book.  It's full of recipes and I've made several and everyone has raved about the bread.  Good luck.  Ask me if you have any questions.

Yes I will as soon as I get home.  I'm out of town for a basketball game and will head home tomorrow.  Will post it then.  http://www.artisanbreadinfive.com/ This is the website that I found the book on an purchased it thru Amazon. You might take a peek.   I started doing this because of the lactose issue in my family.  I am now in control of the milk/whey in our family bread.

That sounds like a great bread recipe

Comment by Nancy on March 19, 2012 at 10:55am

Debbie--can you send the recipe for your bread? Sounds wonderful and you're right about the aroma of baking bread.  Thanks!

Oh...did I mention how good my house smells in the morning?  Nothting's better than the smell of cooking bread or cookies, right?
