I experimented with this corn bread recipe at the beginning of the summer when I was having friends for dinner. I don’t normally experiment with company but this cookbook has been so reliable and it sounded like it would be great, so I gave it a try. It was fabulous. I can’t tell you how […]
I first starting making these biscuits the day after Thanksgiving. Hot Browns the day or two after Thanksgiving are a long standing tradition in our house. We generally use whatever bread is left over from the feast, which this year was supposed to be my favorite rolls, Fluffy Yeast Rolls. However, the yeast rolls were […]
At times, I find that gluten-free or low carb breads have ingredients that I don’t have on hand and have a different texture than what I’m used to. These cheesy muffins with almond flour are the exception. They come out of the oven, soft and tender and have a wonderful flavor that you might even […]
I have been experimenting with gluten-free recipes lately and have had numerous failures which accounts for the decrease in my posts lately. Generally I have a pretty good idea if something is going to turn out or not and after a few additions here or there can come up with a recipe I like. However, […]
The BEST fluffy dinner rolls you will find. A special technique makes perfect rolls every time. This will be my last yeast roll post. I’ve found the PERFECT yeast roll recipe. It doesn’t need tweaked or altered. This recipe and technique have been perfected by America’s Test Kitchen and I have nothing to add to […]
Do you still have mashed potatoes left over and just can’t bear to throw them out? Try freezing them and when you need something to go with a big pot of chili this winter, make these wonderful rolls. You can use mashed potatoes even if you have already added butter and milk to them. If […]
I have to admit, I had never heard of bao until we ordered it at a new restaurant in town that is specializing in food truck food. I’m not sure this is something they actually serve from a food truck, it seems a little time intensive. In any event, I thought they were great and […]
A friend of mine was talking about how much he missed the Hawaiian bread he could get when he lived in San Diego. I love the rolls we can find at the grocery and thought I could make some just as good. I discovered that pineapple juice is what gives them their unique taste.
Natalie was the chef this week for Ten-Minute Tuesday, and I was the timer and scribe. While Natalie helps me out in the kitchen when she’s home, I wouldn’t call her an experienced cook. She made this in 12 minutes but that included grating the cheese. If you are a proficient cheese grater or want […]
I’m not sure what to call this, it’s a cross between a biscuit, cornbread and scone. Whatever the name, it’s awesome. I made it for the first time a few weeks ago and was won over by the flavor.
Parker House Rolls Is there anything better than a hot and fluffy yeast roll? I think I would choose one over the most decadent dessert. I have a friend who was telling me how she had never made yeast rolls so I made this recipe knowing I would have some to share with her. You […]
Snickerdoodle Apple Bread There is nothing like the smell of snickerdoodles in the oven to bring back childhood memories. This moist apple bread has cinnamon in the batter and the signature cinnamon sugar mixture on top. It’s a snap to put together, taking less time than it took for my oven to preheat. Your entire house […]
I tried making English muffins not too long ago, and while they tasted OK, they were very difficult and weren’t blog worthy. However, Taylor loves English muffins and I didn’t want to give up on my quest. Then I found a recipe for English Muffin Bread. It’s not exactly like an English muffin although it […]
There are many times when I want to make bread but don’t have time for traditional yeast rolls. While there are always biscuits, some things just go better with rolls. Natalie and I discovered these not long ago which use potato flakes and only take about an hour. The flavor is great and the potato […]
This past year I discovered a product that I absolutely love. I always have used a good quality vanilla but when I read about this vanilla that is produced by a small business in California, I couldn’t wait to try it. I am on my third bottle and just purchased a couple of extra ones […]
I love this cookbook for it’s innovative take on food. Her commentary is hilarious. I had my favorite 5 and 6 year old cookie testers over for dinner last week to test out spaghetti casserole, and I wanted to try out a bread recipe that would be fun to eat. These pull apart loaves looked […]
I’ve loved spoon bread from the first time I tried it at Shaker Town in Harrodsburg, Kentucky when I was a kid. If you aren’t from the South, you may not have tried this. It’s pretty easy to make but takes a little time so I generally save it for special occasions. It’s kind of […]
It’s rainy and chilly for once, so time to think about fall food. This hearty bread made with beer and cheese is perfect with soup or stew, or just by itself. Who doesn’t love pimento cheese!
Grilled Cheese is by far my favorite comfort food. I like it best with cheese that is so gooey that strings pull away when you cut it in half. And of course it needs to be coated with butter, but not so much that it’s greasy. I thought I had it down pretty good until […]
I have made lots of breads over the years but never attempted challah. It is one of my favorites but I generally purchase it in those beautiful braids from the bakery. I just recently acquired The Sweeter Side of Amy’s Bread which is a cookbook from a bakery in New York and read where they […]
