Pita Bread Recipe

Pita Bread Recipe
This pita bread recipe makes amazingly soft and fluffy pitas. If you’re in the U.S. and are used to the cardboard rounds sold at supermarkets here as “pita bread,” you’ll be amazed once you try the real thing. The yeasty, delicious aroma, the chewy texture and the delicate taste will get you hooked immediately. There’s one caveat though: once you try these, you won’t be able to go back to eating supermarket cardboard pita. The dough in this pita bread recipe is mixed by a bread machine. I own a Sunbeam bread machine, and the small investment (around $50) was very much worth it. If you don’t have a bread machine, you can prepare the dough by hand. Makes 12 small pita bread rounds, or 4 servings Ingredients 1-1/4 cups warm milk (I use 2%) 2 tablespoons olive oil 3 cups bread flour (all-purpose should work) Up to 1/4 cup more for flouring the work surface 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon rapid rise yeast or bread machine yeast Directions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Whole Wheat Pita

77 Healthy Crock-Pot Recipes Crazy schedules, long work hours, and tempting takeout menus make it tough to even think about cooking most nights during the week. Despite the inconvenience, firing up the stove or oven is almost always cheaper and healthier than ordering in or eating out. How about a compromise? Making dinner with a slow cooker — Crock-Pot is the go-to brand in the U.S. — is an easy way to get in all those vitamins and minerals without slaving over a hot stove for hours at a time. Most of these recipes involve mixing up ingredients and popping them into a slow cooker for a prescribed number of hours. jalapeno-cheese bread Raise your hand if you haven’t made no-knead bread yet. Yep, that’s what I thought—I’m the only one in the world who hasn’t baked this miracle of yeast, flour and water. Heck, my mom, the person who taught me how to knead at a very young age, even she now bakes it. That’s my loss, I suppose, because having had the pleasure of eating it I do find it quite delicious. But Sunday I wanted a loaf of fresh-from-the-oven bread and just couldn’t wait overnight for the dough to work its magic: this meant I’d have to bake bread the old-fashioned way—by kneading. I grew up with homemade bread and mom always had a jar filled with sourdough starter living the in the fridge.

Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin as much as anyone else, but to me September is apple season. I was thinking about how often apples get overshadowed by pumpkin a few weeks ago when my husband asked me if I wanted to attend a dinner party with some of his coworkers. “Hrmmm. Maybe…”, I said.
