Fried Dough – Zeppole

Fried Dough – Zeppole

Remember how I mentioned this week about our Seven Fish dinner? You’d think the star of the show would be the sauce full of seafood that simmers for hours: well not in my book. My cousins and I used to steal these from my Mom-mom, fresh from the oil, and tear into them with...

Brussels, Bacon and Parmesan Pizza

Brussels, Bacon and Parmesan Pizza

Pretty sure I’ve said this before, but if you don’t like brussels sprouts it’s because you’re cooking them wrong. Combine the (correctly cooked) baby cabbages with salty bacon and tangy parmesan cheese and you’ve got a pizza that is far from ordinary (in both description and flavor). This is one of the best things I’ve...

English Muffin Bread

English Muffin Bread

With this picture and title, I doubt I’ll have to work very hard to convince you how delicious this bread is. My husband averaged four pieces a day and it was gone in a flash – I still have leftover bread flour so I’ll most likely be making it again this weekend. Instead of...

1 lb. Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

1 lb. Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

I have typed this recipes title into google many times. I don’t want several pizzas, just one. The amount of whole wheat flour in this recipe makes for a really crisp crust – especially if you bake your pizza on the bottom rack. I’ve used this countless times, and I hope it comes in...

Best Pizza Dough

I’m always on the lookout for new recipes, new ideas. I have yet to pick up a Parenting magazine at the gym, as there’s usually some cooking magazine I’d rather peruse (sorry, Tessa). There are several recipes I’ve made, however, that cease my search for that particular food. Case and point, this pizza dough....

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze

I think it’s funny that we only use pumpkin in the fall. It’s like a nod to the original settlers who could only eat pumpkin when they harvested it in the autumn months. The thing is, people, we can find perfectly wonderful canned pumpkin every single day of the year at our local grocery...

Monkey Bread

Monkey Bread is basically a varied form of a cinnamon roll. It is made from the same exact yeast dough, but instead of being rolled up and cut it is rolled into balls, dipped in butter and brown sugar/cinnamon, and stuck back together in a pan to be devoured piece by piece.
