Creamy Roasted Tomato and Carmelized Onion Soup

A bowl of yum! Loaded with tomatoes, caramelized onion and roasted garlic… need I say more? This creamy Roasted Tomato and Caramelized Onion Soup is the best paired with a grilled cheese. Top it with a dollop of swirled yogurt for extra creaminess, and a sprinkle of parmesan or cheddar cheese.

Cinnamon Apple Pecan Oatmeal

Ingredients
  • 1/2 Cup Cup of Donia Farms Sea-Salted GrassFed Butter
  • 1 1/2 Cups Cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 Cups White Whole Wheat Flour or regular flour
  • 1 tsp Fine Sea Salt or regular salt
  • 2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 3 Large Eggs room temperature
  • 2/3 Cup Honey may substitute maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 Cups Donia Farms Milk 2% or 3.25%
Servings: Skillet
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375. Place butter in a large 12" cast iron skillet (or any oven-safe skillet) and put it in the oven to melt the butter. Keep an eye on the butter, you want it to be bubbly and lightly browned but not burnt.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir to combine and set aside.
  3. In another medium bowl whisk the eggs, add honey until fully blended. Add the milk and whisk until evenly combined.
  4. Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients and stir until just moistened.
  5. When the butter is melted and golden, use oven mitts to carefully remove the skillet and swirl to gently coat the sides. Pour the melted butter into the batter and stir until just incorporated. Then, pour the batter into the hot skillet.
  6. Return the skillet to the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. The bread will be brown around the edge, springy to touch and a toothpick inserted will come out clean with a few crumbs. Do not overbake!
  7. Place on a cooling rack and let it stand for 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
  8. This cornbread keeps well at room temperature in a sealed container for 3 days, up to a week in the fridge, or 3 months in the freezer.

 

Diane loves to pair this with an Autumn Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup. For the Soup:

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 2 small to medium), peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tart yet sweet apple, peeled and chopped (honeycrisp or fuji work well)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Fresh ground black pepper

In a large pot melt butter over medium heat.  Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, until soft and translucent, about 10 minutes.  Do not brown.  Add curry powder and cook a minute more.

Add the carrots, sweet potatoes, chicken broth and salt and bring to a boil.  Cover and simmer over low heat until vegetables are very tender, about 25 minutes.  Add apple and cook until soft then add honey.  Using a stick blender, puree the soup until smooth and creamy (you can also puree in blender in batches but make sure you leave the hole in the lid open for steam to escape and cover with a towel).  Season with salt and pepper.

Freezes well for up to 3 months.

Grandma’s White Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Grandma’s White Velvet Cake is easy and delicious. Don’t tell Grandma, but we made a couple of tweeks to her original recipe, like adding in 1/3 cup of Vanilla Yogurt to get an extra moist crumb cake.  Our favourite part about this recipe is reading her old recipe cards. She has things like, “beat for 2 minutes, or 300 strokes by hand.”  300 strokes are definitely making this cake with LOVE!

The cake comes together with pantry staples and is topped with the most delicious and not too sweet Cream Cheese Butter Cream Icing.

Vanilla Pear Scones

Pears are so good and we don’t use them to much in baking… this fall we’re changing that! Try our Vanilla Pear Scones!

The trick with scones is to use COLD butter. And to use good quality butter. Our Grass Fed Heritage Butter is your answer. We like to take the very cold (or even frozen!) butter and grate it with a cheese grater, and then work it into the flour mixture with our hands. Give it a try! you don’t need a pastry cutter, but that also works!
