Better with Blueberry Biscuits

Monday, August 1, 2011

Scouring Reddit the other day, we saw a delicious-looking picture of some biscuits made by ‘kaldrazidrim’ using a recipe from “Williams-Sonoma Bread“.  As always, the comments are the best part of a Reddit post and in this case he decided to post the whole recipe. Without buttermilk in stock we decided to change the recipe […]

Bagels

Thursday, September 24, 2009

I don’t have a very compelling argument for making bagels at home. If you live in New York, amazing bagels are cheap and available. Making a good bagel at home requires buying two ingredients you probably don’t have, malt (malt syrup is available at Whole Foods and malt powder is available at King Arthur) and […]

Big Burger Buns

Monday, August 31, 2009

Sure burger buns are easy to buy, but they’re not that hard to make. You’d be surprised by how little work this is, and you’ll get hot springy buns that are irresistibly pinch-able. These burger buns,  which I’ve adapted from King Arthur, have the perfect tight crumb that will hold up better than any store […]

Homemade Rolls

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

We wandered through the supermarket browsing various rolls and breads, looking for something suitable to hold some Italian sausages we were planning to make. But while we love bread, sodium stearoyl lactylate, diammonium phosphate, and other chemicals don’t excite us.  We decided to make our own.

Whole Wheat Quicker No-Knead Bread

Thursday, May 14, 2009

I started making Quicker No-Knead Bread when I realized, poop, I don’t have 3 cups of bread flour left. Grrr…I used what I had and then decided on whole wheat flour for the rest. I had been wanting to try a whole wheat version but didn’t have the guts, cause I knew I would cry […]

Hot Cross Buns

Friday, April 10, 2009

Since Hot Cross Buns are traditionally made on Good Friday, we couldn’t miss out on that. Any excuse for food is a good excuse. Most commonly made with raisins or currants, ours are made with a mix of dried cranberries, dried blueberries, and raisins, adapted from a highly rated recipe on allrecipes.com, with the icing […]

Irish Soda Bread

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

I got home last night and decided I had to make Irish Soda Bread. It’s been on my mind ever since I made the Green Tea Pecan Crumbles. St. Patty’s Day has just been buzzing around in my head. Luckily, you’ll see that the web offers up tons of recipes on Irish Soda Bread and […]

Rosemary Focaccia

Monday, February 25, 2008

My cousin Olivia brought us some fresh rosemary from Arizona so of course I had to experiment with a Rosemary Focaccia! Here’s the recipe:
