I am lucky to be in the company of many other pumpkin lovers and I just couldn’t let this gem of a recipe pass. This recipe will change you, you may dream of this recipe, it will haunt you until the day you make it, and I know you will, make it that is. Yes, it take a little time and effort, with the making of the dough, rising, kneading, rolling, slathering, loving, baking, and oh, the very best part, eating. Think cinnamon roll with a nice hint of pumpkin and nutmeg. Now, don’t think you can’t make this because you’ve never made yeast dough before. In a small saucepan brown 2 tablespoons butter. It will bubble,
Homemade Calzone I wanted to make something to take on the road, but the contents of the refrigerator were saying PIZZA. Hmmm... pizza is not so portable. Then I remembered CALZONE! Calzone is basically the same as pizza but with a much prettier appearance. Roll pizza dough into a rectangle the length of your baking sheet. Put sauce on the center half of the dough. Just like pizza, add your toppings (our favorites are pepperoni, olives, and mushrooms). Then add cheese. Now comes the special part. This is what it looks like when all the cuts are made. Then "wrap the baby." Here is the calzone ready to bake. Uh oh... don't do what I did. For the second one, I remembered to start with my rectangle of dough ON a baking sheet. By the way, the same dough wrapping technique can be used for sweet fillings too.
Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread 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. You don’t deserve this sort of torture. This bread hits all the comfort spots in my soul. I’m sorry and you’re welcome and I love you. Let’s start at the beginning. I did this all without the use of a stand mixer and dough hook. This dough can be made and left to rise , then refrigerated overnight for use in the morning. This is the dough just before it’s left to rise. After the dough has rested and risen for an hour, I knead it in a few tablespoons of flour. This is the part in the bread process where you can wrap the dough and place it in the fridge to rest overnight. I worked with my dough right away. I can’t even deal. I sliced the dough, vertically, into six long strips. After 30 minutes in the oven… oh man…. bread heaven.

Healthy Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup First, thank you all for the tremendous love and affection you gave on my last post. You make sharing my life worthwhile. Next order of business: I make this chicken noodle soup nearly every weekend. Mainly because it works as an olive branch for when I’ve told Daniel, ‘You are the stupidest person in the whole wide world,‘ following an ordinary round of Jeopardy. And making a big pot of soup will provide me with no less than five delicious and filling meals for the week ahead, which leaves me with ample time to fulfill all of my other pressing obligations. I’m a very busy person, as you can imagine. Here’s how it’s done: Start by roasting a whole chicken, rubbed completely with canola oil, for 1 hour 45 minutes at 400 degrees F. Let the chicken cool enough so that you can handle it, then peel off all skin, discard it, and cut the chicken meat into bite sized pieces. In a large stock pot, combine the chicken bones with 2 quarts of good quality chicken broth. serves 5 1 whole chicken, 4-5 lbs
