Overnight Waffles

Overnight Waffles

Leo and I just decided we’re going to make these every Christmas Eve. There isn’t a better smell than the steam that comes off the waffle iron when these are cooking. The flavor, even without butter and syrup, is like the lightest, airiest dinner roll you’ve ever had. Afraid of yeast? I get it,...

BBQ chicken pizza

BBQ chicken pizza

Another recipe from my teaching days. I taught this during the leavening agents unit – specifically, yeast. It was a hit because California Pizza Kitchen was attracting a lot of attention at the nearby King of Prussia Mall, and my students were familiar as this pizza was one of their best sellers. It’s actually...

Soppressata and Arugula Pizza

Soppressata and Arugula Pizza

Pulled this sheet from Real Simple, date unknown (found it deep in my file). I love when sweet, spicy and salty converge and with this ingredient list, I knew that was a definite possibility. It was listed as an “Easy Dinner 2” but let me tell you, folks, this pizza is no weeknight afterthought....

Maple Brown Sugar Rolls

Maple Brown Sugar Rolls

With all that the online world has to offer when it comes to recipes, I still love magazines and I still tear out recipes I want to try and keep them in a file. I’ve had too many Pinterest fails – gorgeous photos and results that are seriously lacking in flavor. This recipe comes...

Easy Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Easy Cinnamon Raisin Bread

I was recently talking to someone who admitted, as I suspect many of you feel, that recipes requiring the use of yeast are a total no-go. Yeast is scary, or I guess I should say I get why you might think yeast is scary. In reality, yeast is awesome and overcoming your fear is...

Cream Cheese Glazed Cinnamon Rolls

Cream Cheese Glazed Cinnamon Rolls

Really, why mess with a good thing? These rolls are basic – a simple, tender dough rolled up with brown sugar and (lots of) cinnamon. They’re smothered with a thick cream cheese frosting. It’s tangy rather than sickly sweet, so it pairs perfectly with the sweet rolls.

Simple Soft Pretzels

Simple Soft Pretzels

Alternate title: So Easy a Middle Schooler Could Make Them. Seriously. My middle school students made this exact recipe. Now, there are plenty of simple recipes that my middle schoolers made that I wouldn’t deem bloggable, but this is not one. These pretzels have a crisp exterior with a chewy center; the flavor has...

Vermont Oatmeal Honey Bread

Vermont Oatmeal Honey Bread

I have had this on my site for years but when my local Giant was out of Food For Life bread, I decided to get baking with this memorable recipe. I thought I’d “clean up” this version by using all white whole wheat flour instead of the ratio the original recipe suggested. The loaves...

Strawberries and Cream Rolls

Strawberries and Cream Rolls

A re-post for these beauties and they very much deserve it. I think they’re sort of amazing – a cinnamon roll that is filled with strawberries instead of cinnamon and topped with a creamy glaze? I’d say that’s unique. Happy to repost them because the opportunity arose for my sweet cousin Lindsay’s sprinkle! The...
