Homemade Bread Recipe and Making Bread In A Crockpot

Alhamdulilah spring is here and summer is approaching. Sometimes sisters do not like to bake much bread in the summer because the oven makes the whole place extra hot!

Which is understandable, I usually make cooler foods in the summer... lots of salads,  tuna fish etc and fruit salads. My family really enjoys it mashaAllah and there are days where being over a hot stove in the heat can be a bit unappealing! So I learned recently how to bake bread in a crockpot.

In the past I would let my bread rise in the crockpot, even preheating it prior to placing the bread in. There is a setting on our crockpot that has a warm selection. While I am mixing and kneading, the crockpot is being warmed for the bread to rise in. After I am doing I turn the crockpot off and let it rise inside, on top of parchment paper. After a hour f rising time ...Then turning the crockpot on low I let the bread cook inside for 1 and half hours.

If you do not mind the shape of the finished product it will make a good bread mashaAllah! I don't mind the oval shape, neither do the children. I read this no knead recipe online and after mixing it you dont have to knead it, just let it rise.



No knead bread recipe on the link is where I also read about how to make bread in a crockpot:

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon (1 packet) yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup boiling hot water
  • 1 tablespoon oil

Directions  
  1. Add yeast, sugar, salt, and flour to a food processor fitted with a blade attachment.
  2. Process on low for 1 minute.
  3. Slowly add water, then oil.
  4. Process until dough is no longer sticking to sides, and forms a ball.
  5. Remove dough, form into ball.
  6. Place in greased bowl and cover with a towel.  Let rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes, or until doubled in size.  Recipe from:  No knead bread recipe
Since I do not have the food processor I just mixed everything as usual mashaAllah alhamdulilah
I let mine rise in the crockpot and then after it rise I follow the next step of turning it on low and letting it cook for 1 and 1/2 hours.


Foods that you may want to make in the summer time:

Fruit Salads
Pasta Salads
Vegetable Salad
Tuna Fish Sandwiches
Hummus
Vegetable Wraps
Vegetable Tacos

What could you add?

If you use the stove or oven it's best to do it early in the morning when it is cooler out. Your crockpot is your best friend too!! It does not make the house hot and you can cook your dinners in there that you would normally cook on top of the stove

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

5 Ways To Love Your Husband MORE

I had to blow the dust off the blog tonight, as I only write when I am feeling inspired. SubhanAllah, tonight feels like a good night to share a few thoughts on the blog.
How can you, love your husband more?


1.) Speak words that will uplift his spirit. I remember when I would be feeling nervous, and anxious about some event, and my husband (may Allah have mercy on him, ameen) would say encouraging words, that made me feel like the most confident woman in the world. We have the ability to be that voice of encouragement in our mates lives. What mountains we cannot move, when our spouse speaks life into our being! Through out the day, speak to your mate in a way that will help them be better. 
2.) Put your love into action: Yes you can say "I love you" all day long, but adding to that by doing loving gestures, show and prove what we feel inside. Surprising our spouse by writing a love note, or sending a loving text, adds a little more joy to their days. In a world where there …

As salamu alaykum To The Struggling Wife

As salamu alaykum to The Struggling wife....





You are the heart of the home. You are his support, his cheerleader, and he needs you to be by his side. Do you know how important you are to him and to your home?

You are worth more than you know. It may not be said often, but without you... Life would be a little more difficult.

I know you're struggling right now to be a better wife and I know you want to do better. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

Keep asking Allah to guide you in becoming a better wife. Realize that you have a lot of worth and your husband knows it, he married you, he knew you were the woman who could make his life better.

Write down what you can do to make your marriage better and focus on that daily. He put you with this man, that you love, that you decided to marry. You made a commitment, and you said "I am his committed helper." so keep going! Yes it's not always easy, sometimes you want to leave... But you are a strong, praying woman. …
