Pita Bread Pita bread is a great bread for beginning bakers or for making with kids. The entire process of making them only takes about two hours too, so it is also a great one for people on a tight schedule. Flat breads can be made in dozens of different ways. They can be made from grains other than wheat, such as corn in corn tortillas. They can be made with no leavening, such as matzo or flour tortillas, with chemical leavening (baking soda or baking powder) such as pancakes or crepes, or with yeast, such as naan or pita bread. They can also be made from a starter.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Bread I always have the best of intentions when I buy barely yellow bananas at the grocery store. I have visions of healthy breakfast shakes, peanut butter and banana sandwiches, and healthy mid afternoon snacks. Without fail the bananas turn brown and speckled. They start to mush and sink into themselves. They just become all around unsexy. They threaten to spread they’re over exposure to the unsuspecting apples and oranges in the same bowl, and we simply can’t tolerate that! Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake - Mrs. Penguin Hellooooo, cheesecake. So I have to start out by talking about Orange is the New Black! I watched all of it in 3 days. Yeah, I don’t have a life. I laid around and watched it while stuffing cheesecake and cookies into my face. This cheesecake.

How to make the perfect pecan pie This week, in honour of Thanksgiving, I've finally been let loose on one of my favourite American desserts. Despite its heavenly combination of rich nuttiness and caramel sweetness, as a speciality of the south, pecan pie wouldn't have featured on the first Thanksgiving table. In fact, it didn't put in an appearance until the late 19th century. To be honest, even if they had come across trees bursting with nuts, I doubt the pilgrims would have approved of such wanton indulgence – ancient loyalties aside, let's be honest here folks: a buttery, nutty sugar pie is a much easier sell than anything made out of pumpkin. Jamaican Rice and Peas (Coconut Rice and Beans) Recipe The chile is cooked whole with the rice and is there just for a bit of flavor. It doesn't make the rice hot at all, as it stays whole and you discard it at the end. Method 1 Heat the oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat.

ratatouille’s ratatouille Tell me I’m not alone in this: You saw Ratatouille, fell in love with Remy (though you still jumped a foot in the air when you saw a significantly less-charming rodent scamper across your path on the way home) and found yourself with a pressing craving, not for the heavy and too-often soggy traditional Provençal ratatouille, but that kaleidoscope of spiraled colors they served to the haughty and (spoiler!) soon-humbled restaurant critic. I can’t believe how well this worked out. I also can’t believe I cooked a cartoon dish created by an imaginary rat. But I can believe I’ll be making this again tomorrow, because it’s delicious, seasonal, and an incredible cinch to make. We’re just getting to the point in the summer where all of the vegetables are readying themselves for their farmers’ market close-up, so the timing couldn’t be better.

Carrot Cake Recipe I set my sights on carrot cake this week. I suspect you've never made a carrot cake in this way before, and I'm here to encourage you to give it a go. Well, maybe. If you like your carrot cake delicate with a defined crumb, you'll actually want to pass on this one. This is an entirely different beast. It is dense, rich, rustic, walnut-studded, and carrot-flecked. Hip Girl’s Buttermilk Cake & “The Hip Girl’s Guide to the Kitchen” GIVEAWAY “Why do it yourself when it’s so easy to eat out or buy the package item? My answer to that question is quality, nutrition, and economic.” – “The Hip Girl’s Guide to the Kitchen” I used to ask the same question over and over again when I was younger, career-minded, didn’t really think about starting my own family, and simply thought doing it myself was totally waste of time, not to mention I didn’t have the clue how to do it.

in the kitchen with: rigetta klint’s Æblekage I was having lunch at an Italian restaurant last week when everyone at our table was attracted by the fig dessert on the menu. The waiter broke the news that it is too early for figs, but at the end of the apple season, so why not try an apple dessert. After her very popular beetroot pesto in March, Rigetta Klint, founder of Slow Fashion House, has shared her version of a traditional and very popular Danish dessert, æblekage.

Southern Recipe: Buttermilk Coleslaw Recipes from The Kitchn I threw an epic bash on Sunday in honor of my boyfriend. He is modest about his birthday, but I can't seem to control myself when given an excuse to party. This year's theme was a Southern-style crawfish boil, and boy it didn't disappoint. It all started with an email to our 25 closest friends and family. Chocolate and Grand Marnier Banana Cake That’s what I’ve come up with after several attempts to produce a banana bread completely opposite in texture and flavor to the “traditional” banana bread – wet and sticking to your teeth, which is available, unfortunately, in almost every coffee shop throughout North America. My version is moist (don’t confuse with wet), fragrant, and chocolaty. My close friend, who spent most of her life in Budapest and Zurich and has very sophisticated taste as well as her own conception of what a dessert should be like, approved this cake. Makes one loaf, about 10 servings Ingredients:

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. I know that now you’re craving cinnamon rolls, and cream cheese frosting and chili fries and hot dogs. I am too… and I already ate half of this warm bread. Baked Panko Crusted Fish Recipe I used haddock fillets in this recipe, but this recipe could be used for catfish, pollock, cod, flounder, or other mild fish fillets. The panko crumbs keep the fish crisp and the oven makes cooking a breeze, a light and tasty alternative to fried fish. Serve the fish with lemon wedges and a remoulade sauce or tartar sauce, along with coleslaw and fries or roasted potatoes. Cook Time: 20 minutes
