Bursting with cranberries and bright orange flavor, these sweet buttery little scones are my new favorite winter treat. They are easy to put together and perfect to share with friends and family. Continue reading →

Today I gave myself permission to let go of responsibilities and deadlines and just play in the kitchen. I started the day thinking I would pull out my sourdough starters and give them some love but I ended up going a different direction entirely. At some point this morning I was reminded of a gluten-free brioche roll recipe I had seen on the Cup4Cup Gluten-Free Flour website. Since I still had most of a bag of the Cup4Cup flour (I first talked about and used this flour in this Sweet Potato Bread) and a fresh supply of my favorite Kerrygold butter, I decided to go ahead and try the brioche roll recipe. Just because. Continue reading →
I love quick breads. They’re easy to make, the recipes can easily be changed up to fit your mood, and pretty much everyone loves them. I know I haven’t met a quick bread I didn’t like. So when I saw a recipe for a Sweet Potato Cranberry Quick Bread pop up on Facebook yesterday from a new-to-me food blog called Beard & Bonnet, I had to investigate a little further.

This is the second installment in my unofficial Baking with Almond Flour series that I didn’t know would be a series until today. This afternoon I made some delicious banana bread with almond flour instead of wheat flour. It’s wonderful! Phil has unfortunately had a hard time adding grains and dairy back to his diet and for now still feels best on a pretty strict Paleo diet. I’m experimenting with this grain-free baking mostly for him since these tasty treats are very calorie-dense and don’t fit into my Need to Wear a Wedding Dress Soon Diet Plan very well. It’s hard for me to stop at just one tiny piece of banana bread! Continue reading →
Here’s a favorite scone recipe that I’m pulling forward from the first year of my blog. This one features dried apricots in place of the more traditional currants. The slightly tart bursts of apricot are a wonderful addition to the rich, tender cream scone. I hope you enjoy this blast from the past, which was originally published on December 13, 2006.

Yesterday I had a craving for grilled hot dogs. It doesn’t happen often, but when a craving for a childhood treat comes on, sometimes it’s very difficult to shake. So, yesterday afternoon I decided we would grill hot dogs for dinner. The problem was that I didn’t want to eat store-bought buns. I don’t eat bread as often as I used to and if I was going to splurge and eat a hot dog bun (or two), I wanted them to be good ones. The obvious choice was to make some from scratch, but I only had a few hours and most of the bread I make at home takes much longer than that. I needed to find a recipe that was both delicious and quick, so I turned to my trustworthy baking friends on Twitter and asked for recommendations. Continue reading →
It took a week to get to this point, but today I have two loaves of delicious fresh sourdough from my new starter. If you’re just tuning in and want to learn how I created my sourdough starter, begin here.
Even though I’ve been making sourdough bread from scratch for over 5 years, it still amazes me that something so delicious can come from only 3 ingredients: flour, water, and salt. I didn’t use any special equipment to make this bread – it was mixed and kneaded by hand and baked in a home oven on a regular sheet pan. Anyone can do this. Continue reading →
