IK spring preview

The Interweave Knits spring preview is up! My favs? The Narnia White Witch Mitts and the Flutter Sleeve Cardigan. Since I'm not a huge fan of knitting with cotton, linen, or silk, the spring and summer issues are generally not my favorites.

ETA: The Knitty Winter Surprises are up, too.

Here's a hearty and delicious quick bread recipe, slightly modified from Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites. A thin slice spread with low-fat cream cheese makes a perfect breakfast.

Brown Bread

1 C. whole wheat flour
1 C. cornmeal
1 C. all-purpose flour (unbleached)
1 C. raisins
1/4 C. brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. allspice
2 C. buttermilk
1/2 C. molasses

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat two 8-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients listed above the line Add the buttermilk and molasses. Stir just until a batter forms. Pour into loaf pans. Bake 40-45 min., until the loaves are firm and begin to pull away from the sides of the pans. Cool in the pans for 15 min.
