Bean with Bacon
College student here! I love how easy it is to make this soup. I let the beans soak overnight in the crockpot, then turn it on and add everything the next morning. Voila! By dinnertime, I'm ready to eat with no effort except ladling and grabbing a pack of crackers. I have a lunch sized tupperware that holds exactly the right amount of soup for a meal, so I fill that up and then empty it into ziplock freezer bags -- that way I can thaw it out one portion at a time (fridge ~24hrs, submerged ~5?) and I know it will fit in my lunch tupperware. Tips: I usually use Great Northern Beans because they're easier to find, petite diced tomatoes go down easier, I do half turkey bacon and half turkey Kielbasa to cut down on fat and add flavor, and (like another reviewer said) I add both carrot and garlic. A little basil doesn't hurt either. So delicious! Thank-you Karena :)

Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes
This is by far the best homemade pancake recipe I have ever tried out of the probably dozen different recipes I've tried over the past three or four years. I love the texture and taste that the oats and walnuts add. Whole wheat is healthy, oatmeal is filling, walnuts are the best cooking nut (IMO), buttermilk is supposed to make great pancakes, and the genius who combined all of them in this recipe is INCREDIBLE! After making the recipe verbatim a couple times, I decided to improve it slightly. The batter was always a little runny for my taste (which made the pancakes too thin and prone to tearing/falling apart), and I don't usually have buttermilk sitting around. So, I add a tablespoon of Cream of Tartar to the dry ingredients (mix those before adding wet) and then I only use 2 cups of 2% milk... Perfect! Sitting down to feast, I love topping the pancakes with organic wildflower honey and fresh sliced bananas (for variety, try blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries as well). If I have it, a dollop of whipped cream is sensational.

Amish White Bread
This bread is incredible!!! My little sister now wants her own loaf for her birthday... so she can have the whole loaf to herself :D For excellent sandwich material, instead of all sugar, use 1/4 honey and 1/4 sugar omitting the other half of the sugar. To make bread for french toast, use the total amount of sugar that the recipe calls for, but split it with honey. It's stunning that bread can taste so good! Thank you so much for this recipe, I am not ever trying to make another white bread for sandwiches ever again!
