Caramel Rusks. Knock down the dough and then shape into balls. This is the first in my series of caramel rusk recipes. If you heat it too much and it looks like the caramel is about to burn, place the pan on a wet cloth and let it cool.
Put the bread into the baking sheet. There was no way I was not going to bake Tannie Maria's Muesli Buttermilk Rusks.

Foods That Can Make Your Mood Better A lot of us think that comfort foods are not good for us and that we have to keep away from them. If your comfort food is candy or junk food this is true. Soemtimes, comfort foods can be very nutritious and good for us to eat. Some foods really do boost your mood when you eat them. If you are feeling a little bit down and you need an emotional pick me up, try some of these. Eggs, you may be amazed to learn, are fantastic at fighting depression. You must make sure, though, that what you make includes the egg yolk. When you wish to cheer yourself up, the egg yolk is the most crucial part of the egg. Eggs, the yolks especially, are rich in B vitamins. B vitamins can genuinely help you elevate your mood. This is because the B vitamins help your neural transmitters–the parts of your brain that dictate your mood–run better. Try eating some eggs to jolly up! Make a trail mix out of seeds and/or nuts. Peanuts, cashews, sunflower seeds, almonds, pumpkin seeds, and so on are all terrific for helping to raise your mood. This is because seeds and nuts have lots of magnesium which increases your brain’s serotonin levels. Serotonin is a feel-good substance that dictates to the brain how to feel at any given point in time. The higher your serotonin levels, the happier you will feel. Not only that but nuts, in particular, are a fantastic protein source. Cold water fish are great if you would like to feel happier. Tuna, trout, mackerel, herring and wild salmon are all full of omega-3 fatty acids and DHA. These are two substances that promote the quality and function of the gray matter in your brain. It’s true: chomping on a tuna fish sandwich can basically help you fight depression. Grains can be good for fighting a bad mood. Quinoa, barley, millet, etc are fantastic at helping you have a happier mood. These foods fill you up better and that can help improve your moods as well. It’s not difficult to feel low when you are starving! The reason these grains can improve your mood is that they are not hard for your stomach to digest. These foods are easier to digest than others which helps jumpstart a rise in your sugar levels which in turn brings up your mood to a happier place. Green tea is actually great for your mood. You just knew it had to be in here somewhere, right? Green tea has a lot of an amino acid referred to as L-theanine. Research has found that this amino acid stimulates the production of brain waves. This helps sharpen your mental energy while simultaneously calming your body. You probably already knew it is not difficult to become healthy when you consume green tea. Now you know green tea can help improve your mood too! So you see, you don’t have to turn to junk food or foods that are terrible for you just so to feel better! Try a couple of of these tips instead.
