What if I told you that instead of buying bakery bread for four or five dollars a loaf, you could make delicious handmade bread whenever you wanted, at a fraction of the cost and it is so easy a kid could do it? Well, read on because this method of making artisan bread at home will change your life. You can make incredible bread without having to do all the usual time consuming tasks of breadmaking : no need to make a new batch of dough every time you want bread no need to proof yeast no need to make starters or prefermented dough no kneading! In the last few years, several methods for making easy no-knead bread doughs have crept up on the internet and gained popularity.
With the big game day approaching I have been thinking about snacks more. Last weekend I got the chance to try making an artichoke bread that has been on my mind for a while. The artichoke bread is essentially an artichoke dip that is baked on bread until the crust of the bread perfectly light and crispy, the dip is nice and warm, the cheesy topping is melted and golden brown. For the artichoke topping I decided to start with my favorite hot spinach and artichoke dip and I removed the spinach and tweaked it a bit.
Monday, September 10, 2007 No Knead Bread: so easy a 4-yr old can make it! It’s been almost a year since NY Times unveiled the secret to the revolutionary No-Knead Bread.
Moving from Europe, where tasty, fresh artisan bread is readily available, I have to say, I miss it. I love baking bread, but the bread in Norway was so fresh and delicious I never had a reason to make my own. I”ve had such a hard time finding a sandwich bread that even compares to the ones that I took for granted there so, I knew it was time to start making my own once again. I thought it might take a while to find a great recipe, but this was the first recipe I tried and it is perfect. Light and airy, thanks to the use of bread flour, and slightly healthier, thanks to the use of honey and whole wheat flour.
The hardest part of the October Unprocessed Challenge is making your own breads. Not that making bread is hard, it is just that it is time consuming. When you are in charge of feeding a family of five you go through a LOT of bread products. Anything from bagels, sandwich breads, bagels, English muffins... you get the idea. My family is loving every second of this challenge. If there is one food they would all choose me to make them daily it would be homemade bread.
Posted May 17th, 2012 by girlversusdough Believe it, folks. The revolution is here with this Watermelon-Shaped Chocolate Chip Bread . Dun dun dun… Before we go any further, let’s take a look at this recipe. Is it watermelon?
I must begin by saying where the recipe originated, if in fact it originated anywhere...really. 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. The originator is Jim Lahey of Sullivan Street Bakery. That's all I know.
May 10, 2011 | Print | E-mail | Filed under bread , nutella There are some days that I just lose my appetite. It might be because of my mood, or that nothing sounds good, or that I’m in a food rut again and need to spice things up a bit. When my appetite comes back though, what I’m inevitably craving is some sort of comfort food. Yesterday happened to be one of those days, and by the end of the day all I could think about was a warm cinnamon roll fresh from the oven.
Look at that muffin on its side! I dunno know why I did that. Cute? Weird?

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.
Ooey gooey, sticky sweet, moist and magical recipe to share. If you are in the mood for something decadent, a super special, indulgent morning (or after dinner dessert) treat, these vegan are for you. I want to dive into these vegan Cinnamon Rolls. Fork first.
One of the best ways to be frugal in the kitchen is to make your own foods. Don't use all of the prepackaged products available all over the grocery store. Just walking down the baking aisle will show you dozens of options for muffins and quick breads. On the bottom shelves you will find the sugar and flour and things that you will need to make your own. Initially purchasing these ingredients will cost more than a box of muffin mix, however you will be able to make dozens of muffins out of these ingredients.
I’m sorry. I know it’s Monday morning and you probably came here for some pretty pictures of food that you could glance at, and then move on with your day… and here I go thrusting warm, soft cinnamon sugar bread in your face. It’s not fair. I know it’s not fair. I know that now you’re craving cinnamon rolls, and cream cheese frosting and chili fries and hot dogs.
I love recipes that make me feel like I can get away with eating something sweet first thing in the morning. These banana bread cookies do the trick! Combining my own love for banana bread and the addition of chocolate chunks, these cookies are soft and cake like, much like the bread.
And I’m not even kidding! Easiest. Recipe.
