Elizabeth Ann Seton: Mother for Many (Saints and Me!) by Barbara Yoffie
Elizabeth Ann Seton: Mother for Many tells the story of Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first US native-born citizen to be canonized, who established the first Catholic school and had seven children of her own.
The biographies in this new series help the young reader develop an understanding of our real-life heroes, the saint and introduce children ages 4-9 to the concept that saints are people who live all around us, and who can inspire us to become more like Christ. Elizabeth Ann Seton is one of 6 saints in the Saints of North America set, part of the Saints and Me! series.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Colonial Brown Bread (from Catholic Cuisine)
The following cookbook suggestion and recipe for feast of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton on January 4th was shared by Monique Holmes, in Wyoming.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Colonial Brown Bread
Oven Temp: 350
need a greased 9 X 5 loaf pan
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 c. + 3 T flour
1 c. brown sugar, packed
2 t. baking soda
2 c. buttermilk
Mix all dry ingredients. Slowly add the buttermilk, stirring until well blended. Pour into a greased 9 X 5 loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
Turn pan at once and cool on a wire rack. The bread may be eaten warm. Turn the bread on the side for easier slicing.
Variations: I use all whole wheat flour and turbinado sugar.
Cautions: Don’t use any other type of flour. I used whole wheat pastry flour once and it didn’t turn out near as good. Edible but not great!
