It’s that time of year again when pumpkin spice anything sounds good to me. Usually it’s some sort of pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin bar or even pumpkin ice cream…but with pancakes, I can bring my addiction into breakfast time :) These are a perfect fall breakfast and a great way to use up any half-cans of pumpkin leftover from your other baking endeavors. Sprinkling the tops with cinnamon sugar and adding just a drizzle of syrup is all these need in the way of topping. I bet they would also be great with some cinnamon whipped cream.
While making bagels may seem challenging to home cooks, it's actually not as complicated as you might think. But before we get into the specific recipe and bagel-making process, let's explore a few urban myths: Do You Need a Special Type of Flour to Make Bagels? No. Bagel shops often use a type of high-gluten flour to achieve that distinctively chewy texture and to stand up to the rigors of mass production, but you can opt for more readily available unbleached bread flour and still achieve fantastic results.
Josh’s brother is visiting us from California and we are having a great time. Caleb sure loves having his uncle around and I love having another person to feed:) The other day the guys wanted a snack so I whipped up a bowl of guacamole and made homemade baked tortilla chips. The guys were still hungry so I offered to make grilled cheese sandwiches.
My style of baklava is nut-heavy, as you can see. I like it that way, though it does produce a baklava that isn’t easy to eat according to formal Turkish baklava etiquette. If you’re a stickler for formality, cut down the nuts.
The following article was written by Keegan Baur. On a blustery winter day, there's something about a steaming bowl of soup that warms body and soul. Have you ever eaten soup in a bread bowl?
Last week, it was pointed out to me that among the 750 recipes in the archives , there is but a single recipe that utilizes broccoli . Just one! (It’s a great one , though.) For comparison, there are 11 recipes that use cauliflower and 26 with mushrooms . What terrible oversight could have led to this?
“Scalloped” is an attractive word, isn’t it? When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty. And of course scalloped potatoes also comes to mind, which carries my imagination to a land of crispy potato skins drenched in a sea of cheese and cream. I can think of no better place to exist, actually. So when I came across TK member Shelbi Keith’s recipe for Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes , I knew we were going to become fast friends.
This, friends, is where procrastination gets me. I was staring at the computer, mired in writers’ block. I clicked on that Stumble button I installed in my toolbar but never use.
Roasted potatoes are pretty much my life. I’ve been told that I make one mean batch of roasted potatoes, and so I feel like it’s my civic duty to share the recipe with you today. There really isn’t anything that crazy that goes into these potatoes but I guess they are pretty much like crack. People, including my boyfriend, just can’t get enough of them.
November 10, 2008 | By Adam Roberts | 210 Comments You know you’ve done something right with broccoli when the person you made it for describes it to someone else the next day as “better than biting into a steak .” Those were Craig’s words and they were a marked change from the first words he uttered about the broccoli, before he bit in: “You made broccoli for dinner?
