New York Deli Rye Bread

New York Deli Rye Bread

I decided to make New York Deli Rye Bread (from Peter Reinhart’s The Bread Baker’s Apprentice, of course) to make sandwiches out of my homemade corned beef. I was excited. This gave me a reason to buy rye flour, which I’d always wanted to buy. This […]

Poulane-Style Miche – the largest loaf of bread ever

Poulane-Style Miche – the largest loaf of bread ever

While I was thinking of my food plans for this year, I was struck by the desire to make the loaf of bread from the cover of The Bread Baker’s Apprentice. It was the largest loaf of bread I’d ever seen – and I could […]

Rustic Sourdough Bread – take 3

Rustic Sourdough Bread – take 3

As I experimented with bread-making last year, I tried to make Rustic Sourdough Bread from the King Arthur Flour website – twice. I knew back then that I didn’t really know what I was doing, and I’ve definitely made bread-baking progress since then. What went […]

Sourdough Ciabatta Rolls

Sourdough Ciabatta Rolls

I needed to feed my sourdough starter after storing it in the fridge for a month. Since Alex isn’t eating bread with me at the moment, I need to experiment with making individual rolls or smaller loaves of bread that I can polish off myself. […]

338: Ultimate Sourdough Baguettes

315: Ginger-Pecan Sourdough Biscotti

I was intrigued by the recipe for Ginger-Pecan Sourdough Biscotti the first time I saw it. Sourdough in biscotti? That didn’t sound right. I wanted to make it because it was unusual. When I went to try the recipe, though, I was stymied because it […]

313: Sourdough Pizza Crust (King Arthur Flour)

313: Sourdough Pizza Crust (King Arthur Flour)

I decided that I wanted to try sourdough pizza again. I’ve had trouble finding a pizza crust that I like – one that can stand up to the can of pizza sauce and the amount of cheese and topping I put on it. I had […]

304: Roasted Potato Sourdough

304: Roasted Potato Sourdough

I’ve wanted to make Roasted Potato Sourdough since the first time I saw the recipe. I knew that I was going to start it too late to eat it on Sunday, but I decided that I didn’t want to keep looking around for a different […]

276: Sourdough Grissini

276: Sourdough Grissini

Although I eat a lot of bready things, I generally don’t eat a ton of bread on its own, and it’s hard for the two of us to eat even a loaf of sourdough bread without having a specific plan for it (like BLTs or […]

274: Sourdough Waffles (2)

274: Sourdough Waffles (2)

What to do with sourdough starter when I already had plenty, yet wanted to be sure to feed it so I could use it the next day? I knew I had a few other waffle recipes that required me to make the batter the night […]
