Yeasted Banana Sandwich Bread

Yeasted Banana Sandwich Bread

For Bread 39, and for the first loaf of bread I made at this new house, I decided to pull out another favorite of mine – Yeasted Banana Sandwich Bread. I happened to have an overripe banana in the fridge, and I prefer this bread over […]

Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Banana Bread

I didn’t have a lot of motivation for Bread Week 35, so I decided to take the opportunity to use up a few extremely overripe bananas in a Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Banana Bread recipe that was on the back of the bag of whole […]

Slab Pie

Slab Pie

At some point in July, I recalled that I’d read once about a flat pie. Not a galette or a free-form, open-pie. A large, flat, double-crusted pie that was perfect for sharing with a large group of people, without a high ridge of crust along […]

Jacked Up Banana Bread

Jacked Up Banana Bread

For Bread Week 26, I revisited a recipe that I’ve made several times but just have never gotten around to writing about it. Each time we have overripe bananas, I try this recipe from Smitten Kitchen for banana bread, and each time, I give myself […]

Gluten-Free Banana Bread with Coconut and Flax

Gluten-Free Banana Bread with Coconut and Flax

Earlier this week we had some old bananas sitting around, which made Banana Bread with Coconut and Flax a very convenient bread to bake for Bread Week 21. I wish I could tell you that I make banana bread because it’s amazingly delicious, healthy, and […]

For Bread Week 18, I decided to make a gluten-free banana bread – specifically, this one that took both oats and almond meal in addition to some gluten-free flour. I’m glad I did. This was a delicious, hearty loaf that should work well with wheat […]

Gluten-Free Hot Cross Buns

Gluten-Free Hot Cross Buns

Bread, Week 16: I’ve always wanted to make Hot Cross Buns, but never have. In fact, I’ve never eaten one. I came across a recipe for them in a gluten-free baking book I’ve been reading through. I debated whether or not I should make them […]

Peach Bellinis and Strawberry Bellinis

Peach Bellinis and Strawberry Bellinis

For my close friend Jen’s wedding shower last August, I made peach and strawberry bellinis in addition to classic mimosas. Preparing for the mimosa and bellini bar was fun. Jen and I tried out the sparkling wine in mimosas, verifying the correct OJ to champagne […]

Applesauce Oatmeal Bread

Applesauce Oatmeal Bread

Bread, Week 10: I wasn’t sure what to bake this week. I was out of town over the weekend so I had no time to make yeast bread. I didn’t have ingredients (mostly bananas) for other bread recipes I had bookmarked. This Applesauce Oatmeal Bread […]

Fresh Apple Cinnamon Scones

Fresh Apple Cinnamon Scones

Last Sunday I woke up early for a change. I tried in vain to go back to sleep, but when I couldn’t, I decided I might as well make something for breakfast that I normally wouldn’t have the time or patience for. Unfortunately, I didn’t […]
