Gonna share this before this closes!! Tried a new crock pot recipe and oh man sooooooo good :D My only suggestion is to mix the spices and bbq in a bowl then pour. There was a "hot spot" from the cayenne pepper from sprinkling so not doing that next time.

Slow Cooker Root Beer Chicken

> OK! ~
Signing-up basically at the last second! :)

> My Nana used to make this bread a lot, and she shared some recipes she's used online for it,,
she also shared with me some of her 'home-recipe' notes she's added to it! ~

Artisan Rosemary Bread:

> Recipe: https://cafedelites.com/artisan-bread-recipe/

Ingredients:
> 3 cups Flour (All-purpose or Bread)
> 1 tablespoon of Sugar
> 2 teaspoons Yeast (Dried, Instant or Rapid)
> 1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
> 1 1/2 cups Warm Water
> 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
> Italian Seasoning Spice & Rosemary

Instructions:
  • Combine flour, sugar, yeast and salt in a large bowl.
    Add water and oil, mixing to incorporate all of the ingredients together.
    Dough will be wet, sticky and shaggy.
  • Lightly spray the top with cooking oil spray.
    Cover with plastic wrap and place a dry tea towel over the top.
  • Leave in a warm, draft-free place for 2-3 hours, until doubled in size.
    (NOTE: My nana says it's better to begin step 1 and 2 the day before, and let it rest overnight!)
    Dough will have a lot of little holes or bubbles and be wobbly like jelly.
  • Place a large (10-inch or 26cm) dutch oven or heavy based pot or anything Oven-safe that can go in the oven with a lid.
    Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C),, 30 minutes before baking.
  • Lightly flour work surface and plastic spatula with up to 1 tablespoon flour.
    Scrape dough out of bowl onto work surface with spatula.
    Sprinkle the top of dough with a large pinch of flour and fold it over on itself with the spatula (about 5-6 folds). Roughly form a round shape.
  • Measure out a large piece of parchment paper, large enough to transfer the dough into the pot/oven-safe.
    Place paper next to the dough and roll dough onto the paper, smooth side up.
    Carefully move it to the centre of the paper and reshape if needed, or shake pan a couple of times to evenly distribute dough. (It will even out while baking.)
  • Loosely cover with plastic wrap and let rest while oven is preheating.
  • Use oven mitts to carefully remove from oven. Grab the parchment paper from each end to pick up the dough and transfer it into the pot.
    Cover with lid and bake for 30 minutes, then remove lid and bake for an additional 12-15 minutes, until loaf is beautifully golden browned.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
- (c) Directions from the cafedelites website.-

> Notes From Spelly's Nana:
  • Let the bread rest over night or at the minimum 12 hours, rather than 2-3 hours.
  • To get the Rosemary bread, throw both Italian Seasoning & Rosemary on-top of the bread before you bake.
  • You don't need to use a cast iron, just use anything oven-safe that can bake bread
  • After you let the dough rise, put parchment paper in the dish or pan you are sizing the dough in,
    that way once you want to transfer the dough to the pan you can with the parchments paper.
  • And lastly, you can have some flops, but don't give up!~
Hope this isn't too much! <3 <3 So excited to join this!~

Thank you everyone for signing up and sharing your delicious recipes! We are now ready to move to the next stage of this event. Please look through all of the recipes and select one (that is not your own) to cook!

Comment here to claim one so everyone will know which recipes are still available. They are “first come, first served,” but if you for any reason can’t make one that is left, feel free to PM me or Cider and I will ensure that you get one that is suitable to your needs.

Finally, if you missed the signup period, that’s okay! We will allow late signups as well. Make sure to post a recipe and also claim which one you’d like to cook.

Happy cooking!
