Update and Rye Bread

I hadn’t planned on being silent for several months, and I can’t promise to start posting regularly again. But! I did make a loaf of rye bread from scratch and it turned out quite tasty. After I spotted some caraway seeds at the grocery last week, I knew I had to purchase it. I used… Continue reading Update and Rye Bread

Toasted Italian Subs with Homemade Bread

After weeks of boring sandwiches consisting only of a thin layer of meat and cheese on dry, boring bread, it was time for a change. The homemade bread and the fresh basil are the most important parts of this sandwich.  Maybe also the banana peppers.  And salami.  Ok, it’s really the combination of all the… Continue reading Toasted Italian Subs with Homemade Bread

Yogurt Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Homemade Kaiser Rolls | A Review

One of my new roommates has a collection of cookbooks, one of which is The Bread Baker’s Apprentice.  I decided that I needed to try at least one of the recipes, and soon! I settled on the Kaiser roll recipe since I had a family cookout coming up.  This was the first time that I… Continue reading Homemade Kaiser Rolls | A Review

Homemade Garlic-Dill Wheat Crackers

Remember last time? Last time I made Rosemary Wheat Crackers.  They came out more like Rosemary Wheat Pillows. This time I was determined to do better.  Still using this recipe as the basis, I added a generous sprinkling of dill and garlic powder for flavour.  I rolled the dough out much thinner this time. The… Continue reading Homemade Garlic-Dill Wheat Crackers
