Yeast Bread

Nebraska Beef Buns

June 26, 2013

Forgive me for being a little groggy this morning. I’ve been up since 4:30am with my 6 month-old. You know how that is. And to top it all off I can’t find my bananas to save my life. Or my smoothie straw. Not a good start to my day. Seriously, I don’t know how a [...]

Focaccia with Caramelized Onions and Spinach

June 18, 2013

I admit it. I have a weakness for fresh bread. And an even more serious weakness for fresh bread with cheese on it. I know that I am not alone in this. I mean, isn’t the love of bread and cheese the one thing that practically every culture in the world has in common? This can actually [...]

Quinoa Dinner Rolls

May 31, 2013

Who here thinks that quinoa has the weirdest texture ever? It’s bubbly but crunchy… not my favorite thing. I pretty much avoid it at all costs. I’ve been seeing it plastered all over Pinterest lately though, which has made me rethink our relationship. I’ve been trying to get my Dad to eat it too since [...]

Thin-Crust Whole-Wheat Pizza with Garlic Oil, Three Cheeses, and Basil

May 21, 2013

Have I ever mentioned that I usually cook two different meals for dinner? Well, I know that I have at least said a thing or two about my Husband, Dave’s, picky food habits… which leads me to no other option than to cook two entirely different meals more than half the time. And it’s not [...]

New York Style Thin Crust Pizza

April 8, 2013

I’ve never been quite satisfied with homemade pizza dough. Until Now. This had got to be- hand’s down- the best homemade pizza dough for thin crust pizza out there. I usually use Ina Gartens recipe since it is so straight forward with always good results, but this… this recipe has superb results. I find that [...]

German Easter Bread

March 29, 2013

It was around this time last year that I went to the Nuremberg Oster (Easter) Festival with a girlfriend. I was just pregnant at the time, having only suspicions of being so. The fact that I walked into a German bakery, ordered a large round of ‘Oster Brot‘, and then preceded to devour almost the entire loaf [...]

Whole-Wheat Bagels

March 22, 2013

I make bagels on a regular basis now. They are a huge staple in our household. My Husband can’t handle anything but the everyday plain bagel, but I wanted to come up with something a little bit healthier for my daughter. She isn’t the best eater and at the age of 2, I really think [...]

Homemade Crescent Rolls

March 12, 2013

It’s not often that I find myself taking a bite of something and then running to the computer to start typing up a post. But these rolls…. AH-mazing. Seriously, these will forever be the roll that I make for all Holidays. I can’t stress enough how blown away I was by the flavor. If you’ve [...]
