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...

The Best Dinner Rolls

The Best Dinner Rolls

I’ve had these on my site for years now – at least 4. I made them to bring to Thanksgiving one year and they stole the show. Since then I’ve made them for most of the family holidays, but I wasn’t so sure if I could pull my act together when I was the...

Fresh Herb Focaccia

No food processor, no standing mixer, no kneading – no lie! All you need is a bowl, a whisk, a spoon, and a baking sheet. Now some recipes I post here barely need the “how-to” pics as the directions are pretty standard; this recipe (and all that use yeast), benefits from the photos. I...

French Bread at Home

French Bread at Home

This recipe is a standby for me – originally from when I taught at the high school, this was a hit for several reasons. First of all – it’s easy as pie (or…bread). Secondly, my students would be REALLY proud of themselves for making something that they’d only ever seen from a bakery. And...

Lemon Blueberry Rolls

Lemon Blueberry Rolls

These strawberry and cream rolls  were a culinary highlight several summers ago and I planned to make them last night as my Bible study group was in charge of snacks. Alas – we’d just eaten our last frozen strawberry! We did, however, have a bag of frozen blueberries so with a few swaps to the...
