Rise and Shine: Basic Brioche Making bread can be intimidating for some folks. You may have tried it before with unsuccessful results and decided to give up completely. You would not be alone. Brioche is a light and airy bread that is has a very subtle sweetness. The best thing about it is that it is simple to make. savour ... the smell of freshly baked bread Get the rest after the jump... Basic Brioche Before you start: When you begin the dough won’t look like much more than a sticky mess. Be sure to plan appropriately. The dough will rise very little during the time between mixing and placing it in the refrigerator. I like to let dough rise in a large glass measuring bowl so I can gauge its progress. To prevent them from browning too quickly place a rack above your rolls in the oven. To prevent burning the bottoms place the brioche cups or muffin tins on two baking sheets. If you wish, you can reserve the egg white from the extra yolk you used to mix with just a little water and brush on the rolls before baking.
Thanksgiving Week Day 7 - Mini Pumpkin Tarts I had a bit of a dilemma about what type of dessert to share for the last day of Thanksgiving Week. I really wanted to create a big show-stopping dessert that would impress the pants off your guests. But then I realized that after a huge feast, most of your guests will already be bursting out of their pants anyway, and revealing a big dessert at the end of the meal could elicit more groans than cheers. So I decided to think realistically and choose a dessert that is small and light, that guests can easily indulge in or pass on depending on how they're feeling, and most importantly, that doesn't require a ton of work on the cook's part. These mini pumpkin tarts were the perfect solution - they're basically a pumpkin pie in miniature form. So for those who love pumpkin pie but can't bear the thought of eating a whole slice after finishing the big meal, they can still get their pumpkin pie dose in an adorable little two-bite form! Mini Pumpkin Tarts Makes 36 mini-muffin sized tarts

Homemade Nutella Recipe If you ask me, Nutella should be considered one of the four main food groups. This chocolate-hazelnut spread has it all: healthy fat and protein from nuts, heart-healthy antioxidants from the dark chocolate, a touch of sweetness to fulfill that…um…sugar requirement…okay, so it’s not quite ready for a starring role on the food pyramid. Who cares, when it tastes so good? The problem with traditional Nutella–in addition to its addicting flavor–is that it’s loaded with modified palm oil. If you’re like me, and you want your guilty pleasures to come with a little less guilt, you’ll be thrilled to know that you can make homemade Nutella with just four ingredients and about 15 minutes! Stock up on hazelnuts and be prepared to have Nutella at every meal, because things are about to get intense… Homemade Nutella Recipeyield: about 1.5 cups Ingredients The first step is to toast the hazelnuts.

Pizza Swirl Bread I have good news and bad news. The good news is… I made you bread. It tastes like pizza. It’s swirled with piles of grated provolone and spicy pepperoni and a nice little mixture of Italian seasoning [...that came out of a tube]. Yeah. We all do it. The bad news is that it disappeared.
