Crusty Bread. I must begin by saying where the recipe originated, if in fact it originated anywhere...really.

Crusty Bread

I think bread has been baked for centuries using flour, salt, water, and yeast or other form of leavening. As far as I know the recipe for "No-Knead" bread dough was printed in the New York times. I don't know what month, day, or year. Cream Cheese and Cinnamon Crescent Rolls. I’m always looking for easy and delicious recipes that can be made quick and with ingredients I already have.

This next recipe is one of those. They turned out so gooey and yummy – you will definitely have to try it out for yourself! This little treat has actually become the hubby’s favorite snack on a weekend morning. Eating them when they’ve come straight out of the oven is just pure heaven! The mix of cream cheese and sugar and cinnamon makes these pretty irresistible!

Panko Mozzarella Sticks!

Please don’t ask me how I know that; I just do. I remember vividly reading a recipe that contained panko bread crumbs, and I remember vividly that I was nursing my second baby, and I remember vividly that I was hormonal and desperate, and the next thing I knew I was ordering panko bread crumbs from some market in Chelsea that the magazine recommended. On the phone, of course, because although I had a computer at the time, I certainly wouldn’t have been cool enough to use it to order panko bread crumbs. Plus, I was nursing. Not enough hands. Panko bread crumbs, in a word, are delicious. Panko are Japanese breadcrumbs, and are lighter and flakier than regular breadcrumbs.
