Green Salt Focaccia

I have been an awful blogger lately, I hit my all-time low (or at least I hope so) last month with one measly post, and last week I didn’t even have the excuse of being busy with work.  I spent my warm summer beach days lazily drifting along the ocean currents, soaking up the sun,…

Sticky Buns

Sticky Buns – cinnamon roll’s nutty more complicated cousin. By more complicated, I’m referring to the extra day it takes to make these gooey lovelies (it can be done in one very long day, but it is actually easier to not cut corners with this one), the application and creation of the filling which requires…

Strawberry Focaccia Faux Cheese Danish

A strawberry focaccia cheese danish? Where to start?  This idea floated my way via Living magazine, and I though, there’s an idea – a low fat, simplified version of a cheese danish, that doesn’t involve strategically layering a pound of butter into your dough – stellar! I had to try it, at least once and,…

Cheddar & Jalapeño Boule

A spin off of last weeks post, this wild leavened sourdough is studded with cubes of sharp cheddar cheese and a fresh jalapeños.  One of my latest tricks is to cut my cheese into little cubes instead of grating it.  This allows for mini pockets of melted cheese throughout the bread, ensuring that the cheese…

Wild Yeast Leavened Bread

I have been sitting on this blog post for weeks.  Writing about this process seemed like a massive daunting task that I was ill equipped to handle, after all, what do I really know about cultivating my own bread yeast? and messing around with all that bacteria? I’m likely to poison someone.  I quickly got…

Rosemary Asiago Bagels

My latest foray into bagel baking involves a wonderful hunk of asiago cheese that’s been aged in rosemary – a stellar combination that can only be made better by wrapping it into a chewy circle of dough.  If you don’t have a local source of rosemary infused asiago cheese, as it’s not the most common of…

Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls

The ephemeral bee seems to have become a bread blog lately, and here’s yet another bread recipe for the books.  I’m going to chalk it up to my love for freshly baked bread and the cool autumn, perfect for soup, weather.  These bread rolls were particularly easy to bake.  Requiring only a 5 minute machine…

Apple Quick-Bread

A honey infused apple quick-bread with a sour cream base, I set out to bake a simple apple quick-bread that was slightly more savory then an apple cake (I’m thinking breakfast) and not heavily spiced.  One of my latest food revelations is that heavily spiced apple cakes/breads muffle the bright, saccharinely tart flavors of a…
