I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

No Knead Cheesy Bread

Crusty on the outside, soft and cheesy on the inside! I can think of a few people like that, but I'm talking about this bread! And with no kneading this bread comes together in no time!


3 cups flour + 1/4 cup for dusting

1 tsp salt

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp yeast

1 1/2 cups warm water (95-105°F)

1 1/2 - 2 cups shredded cheddar (orange or marble to give it the lovely colour!)

3 tbsps fresh thyme

Whisk 3 cups flour, salt, onion powder and yeast together in a large bowl. Pour in the warm water and mix with a spoon until sticky.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap for 3-18 hours until it doubles and makes bubbles.
Put a Dutch oven in a 450°F oven and preheat it for 30 minutes with the lid on. Toss the cheese and thyme together. Flour the counter and your hands and turn the dough out of the bowl. Fold the dough and layer cheese 4 times then fold over and tuck in the ends at the bottom to form a ball.
Place dough ball in a parchment lined bowl and cover with a dish towel for 20 minutes. Take the Dutch oven out of the oven. Lift the parchment and dough from the bowl and sit it gently in the hot Dutch oven. Give it a nice slice with a sharp blade through the top to expose some cheese.
Cover and bake for 30 minutes, then remove the lid and return the bread to the oven for another 15 minutes.

Cool 10 minutes before slicing.

Say Cheese 😁📸
