Bagels

A few weeks ago I tried to make bagels. They were not delicious, and not at all pretty. It was deeply upsetting, because let’s be real, bagels are just weird shaped tiny bread. If they aren’t pretty they have to taste good, and they couldn’t even do that. Here’s what they looked like: See? They…

Feta Olive Rustic Loaf

Salt is amazing. We are wired to love it, and it is wired to not love us. Although salt isn’t very healthy, it is necessary (“necessary”) in small amounts to make bread taste good, and to make most things taste good. One of my preferred methods of salt intake is feta cheese, which is wonderfully…

Applesauce Buns

There’s nothing better on a cool fall day than warm apple sauce. It’s a fact and the entire world agrees. Ask anyone. Another thing that is perfect and amazing and makes you feel like you’re back home on the prairie is fresh bread. The combination of the two is a medley too perfect for words….

Pizza Bread

Pizza is one of the select items that I could literally eat every day and, although I’d be a thousand pounds, I would be very very happy. So it would basically be worth it. It is a wonderful combination of bread, sauce, cheese, and literally anything else you want. So two of the greatest things…

Empanadas

Sometimes I spend the boring parts of my classes thinking about food. And by sometimes, I mean all the time. If a professor starts mumbling about why I’m going to definitely need to know the intricacies of the Seiberg-Witten Theory, the chance that I’m contemplating my lunch is 100%. It’s where I come up with…

Avacado Croissants

Sometimes I like to pretend like I’m a healthy eater. I’m really not, because I eat a lot of junk and a lot of butter, because it’s delicious, but I can still pretend. I’ve come up with a really good system to convince myself I eat well. Every day I eat a lot of unhealthy food, I…

Chocolatines (Chocolate Croissants)

I made chocolatines (basically chocolate croissants) today and it was a great decision. The process- which is way easier than it sounds- involves making a giant butter patty and folding it into dough. A GIANT BUTTER PATTY. Like, yes please? The whole recipe was actually kind of relaxing. I started by making the giant butter patty…

Braided Chocolate Tea Bread

I was feeling festive today, and also kinda bored. Like I had plennnnty of time to waste proofing dough. It’s probably more accurate to say that I had plenty of time to ignore my actual real life responsibilities like washing my clothes and doing my dishes and I instead decided to make more dishes, which I…

Poppy Seed Bread

There’s this bakery half an hour from my house that makes really good poppy seed bread. Growing up, I was well aware that my entire family was obsessed with it. I wasn’t a big fan, because poppy seeds were gross and kinda freaked me out because they looked like tiny bugs. But then one day…

Garlic Bread

Let’s talk about butter. It is a quality ingredient. And until today I never really thought you could put too such butter on a piece of bread. Guess what… turns out you can. I made garlic bread today. It was insanely good, and then I made a garlic butter spread to put on it. I’m really…

Chocolate Layer Bread

I was feelin a strong hankerin for chocolate this morning. Like, whether or not I ate it wasn’t going to be an option. It was happening. But after deciding this I realized that the only chocolate I had was in the form of (1) hot chocolate mix and (2) an Easter bunny my friend’s mom…

Green Tea Rolls

I really like green tea, because it makes me feel healthy. Sometimes, I’ll get ice cream from Ben and Jerry’s, and then I’ll be like, “my belly is so full of sugar and butter… better have some green tea to cancel that out”. I don’t actually know what antioxidants are, but I’ve convinced myself that…
