5. Copycat Trader Joe’s Raisin & Rosemary Crackers
A somewhat recent discovery of mine was a box of Trader Joe’s crackers with raisins and rosemary. They’re delightful on their own, but with a soft cheese or hummus, they’re heavenly addictive! The only thing to prevent me from eating the whole box is that my guy and my sister enjoy them as much as I do. I suppose that’s a good thing, but my hoarding instincts always start to kick in when I have to share that box. I guess it’s good that I figured out how to make these healthy crackers at home!
6. German Raisin Bread
Growing up my father always baked bread at home. I can only recall my parents buying bread such as baguettes for family gatherings, special occasions etc. Usually, he would make a Sourdough Multigrain Bread or a Dark Rye bread, so when Easter came along my brothers and I would eagerly await the fresh loaves of soft and fluffy raisin bread. Once in a while, he would also bake a variety of Brötchen (breakfast rolls) for Sunday breakfast but the Rosinenbrot had its special place at the table studded with bursts of sweetness.
