Auf Lauf (Dutch Baby/German Pancake)

by: Skinner-Holmberg family (4th & 8th grade) My family made “auf lauf” for weekend breakfasts when I was growing up, but when I reached adulthood and asked for the recipe, I found out it had not been written down, and I couldn’t replicate it. Then I received Joy of Cooking and discovered that what we had always called auf lauf was a well-known thing called a “Dutch Baby!” We have this often for brunch on weekends, though we use about half the butter that Joy of Cooking uses! Through quarantine we have made lots of great breakfasts but I always come back to auf lauf because it is easy, homey, yummy, and beautiful!  – Erika Source: Our family’s version of Joy of Cooking’s recipe! Ingredients 4 eggs1 cup milk1 cup all purpose flour (can substitute up to 1/2 cup whole READ MORE

Easy Bagels!

by: Mrs. Olwell (grade 5 teacher) I started making this recipe at the beginning of our quarantine when I was pregnant. I made them for the first time the day after we found out that we would be out of school. I was sad because it meant I wouldn’t get to say goodbye to my students before I had my baby and would be on maternity leave. I needed to keep busy by cooking and baking to keep my mind off of everything going on. My husband had one and said “oh my goodness this is the best bagel I’ve ever had!” They were so easy to make I made them many times those couple of weeks I was pregnant. After I had baby Hunter, my husband made them for me as my first meal back at home. I’ll always READ MORE

Flourless Chocolate Chip Banana Bread: Quarantine Edition

by: Ms. Cipolla (Second Grade Teacher) During this period of quarantine, flour was hard to come by, and we had a lot of ripe bananas to use up! We decided to try out a few new recipes for flour-less banana bread, and this one was our favorite. Although the original recipe calls for nut/seed butter, and coconut palm sugar, we swapped in regular butter and sugar as that was what we had on hand. We also did not have baking soda, but did have baking powder, so if you also have the same predicament: modify the recipe by adding 2 tsp of baking powder (and no baking soda) for the same delicious creation!   Source: Amanda from Running With Spoons (https://www.runningwithspoons.com/flourless-chocolate-chip-banana-bread/) Ingredients Bananas (2, ripe, mashed)2 large eggs1/4 cup butter1 tsp vanilla3/4 cup oats1/4 cup sugar1/4 tsp sea salt1/2 tsp READ MORE
