Tomato Basil Bread

Tomato Basil Bread

I love Panera and Paradise Bakery (as a side note, have you ever noticed how similar those two places are?  It’s uncanny).  I always get the same thing when I go.  I get the “you pick two” with the Mediterranean Veggie sandwich and mac & cheese.  OK, maybe not always the same thing, sometimes I […]

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

I love pizza.  I think that pretty much everyone loves pizza.  The major problem with pizza is that it’s too delicious and has about a zillion calories.  I tried to create a pizza dough that you can use with any toppings that’s healthier than a frozen pizza or take out but just as yummy.   […]

Apple Onion Puff

Whenever I see a picture of food and it has puff pastry in it, I always want to eat it immediately.  Unfortunately, I had a bad experience with puff pastry when I accidentally set fire to my boyfriend’s oven.  It was a minor fire, but his housemates were not too pleased about the failed experiment […]

Ciabatta

Ciabatta

I recently tried to make focaccia bread.  It was delicious so I decided to try to make other sandwich breads too, like ciabatta.  I looked at the recipe for ciabatta and saw that you needed something called a “biga” that you had to prepare a day in advanced.  “Nope, not for me.  Too advanced,” my […]

Foccacia

I never really thought of myself as a cook or really enjoyed cooking much, but last week I was on vacation with my family and boy did I miss cooking.  I came home with loads of ideas for recipes to make.  I even convinced my sister (who also likes to cook) to start her own […]

Pepperjack Garlic Bread

Yes, this is another cheese bread. This pepperjack garlic bread is my boyfriend’s recipe, and it’s also everyone’s favorite.  I don’t know how he got so lucky.  He makes one thing and it’s a hit, while I have to fail a few times before I get a success.  This bread is soft and cheesy and will […]

Pita

This post is part 2 in a series leading up to the greatest stuffed pita of all time.  The first recipe was piquillo pepper hummus and the last is stuffed pita.  This hummus is amazingly and so simple.  If you have time to make these, you have time to make the hummus.  You really need to […]

English Muffins

More bread!  Also, two posts in a week!  Also also, english muffins are very photogenic. I got the idea to make these from my favorite bread book that I posted about yesterday.  The recipe in the book called for fresh yeast and different kinds of flour that I didn’t have so I went online looking for […]

Onion Cheese Bread

Last post I hinted that I would be making pasta for my next recipe.  If you read the title, you may realize that this isn’t pasta.  That is because I epic failed at making it.  Pasta and I aren’t talking for a while.  Especially the stupid butternut squash ravioli kind….  The problems first started when […]
