  1. Nice job Amanda, each one by itself is an awesome recipe. I particularly like the look of that wheat berry salad, a grain I need to try soon. I just made a crowd pleasing grain myself, edamame bulgur. I’ll be posting it soon but it sure was tasty. I bet the cranberries really made the salad there though. Excellent work!

  2. That food looks wonderful! Just what I need to do to get some excitement back into my healthy eating plan!
    Thanks for joining us on the Perfect Day Challenge! I really need one and it helps to know that I’ll have so much company. Good Luck!

  3. What kind of bread machine do you have? What size loaves does it make? Do you like yours to bake the bread in, or just to mix the dough?

    (The wheat berry & rice salad looks delicious!)

  4. We have the Cuisinart CBK-200

    It makes three different sizes, 1, 1.5 and 2 lb. I usually make only 1lb because it’s just the two of us.

    I like the bake bread both ways! For loafs I mainly bake them in the bread machine. I love to make focaccia’s, which I obviously just use the bread machine to mix the ingredients and to help the dough rise.

    I love it! I use it all the time.

    Actually, I have a recipe coming up that has millet in it. It’s a multigrain bread, very similar to the one at Panera. Do they have Panera in the North Country?

  5. Thanks for joining me on the ONE PERFECT DAY challenge! It really helps to know I’m not alone! Good Luck! And I’m definitely going to try some of your recipes, friend!
