Last week, we made a no knead sourdough bread, since it was late and I didn’t want to clean the counters again. We ate it right up with a boatload of lasagna. No knead bread is no joke.
Here are some good looking breads to consider baking soon. We got: apple sourdough bread, brioche donuts with honey glaze, challah pretzel bread, and cinnamon raisin soda bread. (pictures from respective links)
Yum! Get to it!
Here are some gluten-free recipes I’ve collected this week that I am excited to try soon. Sweet potato muffins. Flourless chocolate cupcakes. Spiced orange chocolate chunk cookies. Honey oat bread. Yay for fall baking season! I need to get my hands on some fancy flours.
Like farm to table, except it started as a pin… get it??
Here are some of my recipe pins that I am excited to try soon. Quinoa and blueberries for breakfast. Sweet and salty bagels. Shrimp and grits. Gluten-free almond coconut cookies. Let me know what you are cooking up this weekend!
PS: I just hit 2,000 pins this morning! How exciting for me!
Double PS: Isn’t it the worst when you see something, and it leads to nowhere? I assure you that all pins that I can remember have been tried and tested.
So there are two things that most influenced the summer of salads: 1. A new cookbook. 2. A Rachael Ray magazine that I stole (not maliciously) from work. I am really exploring outside the normal tomato/cucumber/green pepper standard. Getting more creative with my lettuce every day.
Let me know if you have a fav combo that I need to try!
We made roasted brussels sprouts the other day. Pat ourselves on the back, these are pretty yummy veggies.
We did the basic cover in olive oil, salt, and pepper, and stick them in a hot oven until they looked good enough to eat.
I am thinking of planting brussels sprouts in our (still imaginary) garden. They are some crazy looking plants. Delicious, but crazy.
Maybe it was the recent long weekend or the longer days, but I feel like time is moving slower lately. We have been enjoying the time by putting more effort into our meals. I even made salad dressing. Salad dressing. Not a baked good.
This salad dressing was basically like salad salsa. It was chopped up tomatoes, basil, and green onion. A little garlic, salt, pepper, red wine vinegar, and oil. Shake it all up in a jar. We put it on a salad of spring mix, white beans, and red pepper. Fancy, right??
