Problem is, when restaurants start to get creative, it usually spells trouble for your waistline. Au Bon Pain's Prosciutto Mozzarella Sandwich is a perfect example of this "more is more" mantra, where a few thin slices of cured ham and a mozzarella blanket turn a lunchtime bite into a sandwich that packs as much saturated fat as 5 scoops of Breyers vanilla ice cream.

We're all for innovating, but if you're going to do it, do it right. The curious combination of sweet apples, smoky bacon, and sharp cheese isn't just delicious, it contains less than half the calories of most other grilled cheese sandwiches out there.

Sugarcrafter - StumbleUpon

It’s almost as much fun to say as it is to eat, and with the arrival of autumn, I couldn’t stop thinking about taking my usual recipe and kicking it up a notch with the addition of pumpkin – so, of course, I did. Making monkey bread has always brought with it feelings of nostalgia for me, which makes it one of my favorite sweets to share with family and friends. In fact, the day after I made it, I invited a good friend over so that I could share it with her, along with some apple cider – a lovely way to spend an autumn afternoon, if you ask me! Even though it takes some time to make, most of it is hands-off time – like any yeasted bread, you can leave the dough to rise and go off and do other things while you wait.

Tuesday Tasting Butternut Squash Ravioli.

Every year, around the same time I dig out my winter sweaters and scarves, I always start craving butternut squash everything…especially if said squash happens to be wrapped in homemade pasta dough and drizzled with warm sage brown butter.

Tuesday Tasting Butternut Squash Ravioli

Last weekend after spending the day decorating the Christmas tree and stringing the lights, I decided to break out the pasta maker and mix up dough from scratch. It was my first time making ravioli, and once the sheets of dough were made, it was really just a matter of scooping out the filling and sealing each little pillow of goodness shut. It wasn’t a 30-minute meal by any means, but with every mouthwatering bite, we were reminded that the process is so worth it. Keep reading for more photos and the recipe… It’s really important to keep running the pasta dough through the machine until the sheets are almost transparent.

Pretzel Bread - StumbleUpon. Baking bread, whether as an occupation or as a hobby, is extremely satisfying.

Pretzel Bread - StumbleUpon

Bakers have almost complete control over their bread, requiring little more than some very simple ingredients, time and the willingness to get his or her hands a little messy. Pretzel bread is not quite a simple as flat bread or dinner rolls, but the loaves come out of the oven with a deep, brown pretzel crust and a slightly sweet, tender center. This particular recipe should be treated as a base to which other ingredients may be added. Cinnamon and extra brown sugar can create a sweet pretzel, or garlic and other spices can create a more savory pretzel.
