On December 22, 2012 By admin

I’m up at 6am, I’ve got “White Christmas” playing on Netflix, and I’m making various breads for tonight’s family Christmas party. I’m making both hearty rolls and lighter, eggy rolls. While they are rising, I’m going to do a bit of research on shaping rolls. I’ll post what I find in [...]

Dinner: Irish Soda Bread

On March 15, 2012 By admin


It’s on Saturday. The day of all days. The day you better wear green or I’ll be horribly offended. If you don’t want to do the entire St. Patty’s Day meal (which the Irish rarely eat, by the way), at least make some soda bread. My favorite recipe is below. Without fail, [...]

Lunch: Whole Wheat Bread

On March 8, 2012 By admin

Oh friends. I don’t know what to say. Just kidding. I totally know what to say. I found a killer bread recipe. Every few years I get the craving to make my own bread. I can’t say that I make my own bread on a regular basis because it really does happen [...]

As with all recipes from E, these cinnamon rolls are unique, simple, scrumptious, and full of character. My girlfriends and I made them all through college. I’m still making them [...]

In my world there are two kinds of rolls. The kind you eat with soup and salad (hearty, rustic, chewy) and the kind you eat with a roast beef dinner (light, delicate, eggy). Because I don’t do roast beef dinners often (no offense, just not that into meat lately), I almost never make the latter. [...]

Although Fall began officially in September. I can’t really grab a hold until October. And to celebrate my unofficial beginning of my very favorite season, I am posting one of my most frequently asked-for recipes. If I had a dollar for every time someone wants this recipe, I could buy another electric pressure [...]

If you have spent any amount of time with me or my food you will know one thing: I love caramelized onions. I will look for any decent vehicle to hold the golden beauties. I love them in salad. I love them on pizza. I love them in soups. With steak. On hamburgers. Maybe I [...]

Bread: Consider the Bread Machine

On December 28, 2010 By admin

In December 1998, a large package arrived at my door. It was a new and innovative tool called a bread machine. Fast forward 12 yeas later. A walk through any local Salvation Army or thrift store today produces several donated bread machines. They have become passe. But today I want you to rethink your bread [...]
