Encouraging Hearts and Home 12.03.2020

Holiday Gift Ideas for Teen Boys and Girls, Cranberry Bread Pudding, Buffalo Plaid Placemat, and A Christmas Home Tour are this week's featured posts. 

Hello and Welcome! 

Our days are getting colder, and the evening darkness starts at about 4:00pm. And it sure shows when I take a photo of any recipe I plan to share here on the blog. While the food looks great in person (and tastes good also!), it is a bit dull and brown in the photo. There was only one solution, add a hanging lamp above the dining table that I use for my workstation here in our little apartment. So I did...

A lamp should arrive by end of this week, and this weekend we can get it installed and busy helping to add much need light for better photos! 

Whole Wheat Cottage Cheese Yeast Buns, easy yeast bread recipe!

This platter of brown food is delicious, however, and I encourage you to give these
Whole Wheat Cottage Cheese Yeast Buns a try. They work up tender and only require a bowl and spoon for the mixing, a perfect recipe to make with your favorite child by your side.  And the Honey Molasses Butter is quite good too!

And now, for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!
