Biscuits!

If you’re ever wondered what a 500-degree oven is for, it’s for cooking these little beauts: I haven’t made ‘em since…  oh gosh, probably since my previous life as a Victorian housewife.  But I made ‘em this morning.  The recipe I use (this time around anyway) derives from “Harriet’s Southern Biscuits” out of Jeff Smith’s [...]

I could have sworn I already posted this here, but I’m probably thinking of my previous blog…  In any event, Great-Grandmother Charity died a couple of decades ago, and lived to a ripe old age before she did, so the provenance of this recipe could easily be over 100 years old.  It is the heirloom [...]

Dragonia’s Macaroni & Cheese

I’ve been hearing about this recipe for years now, so it was a delight to finally get to try it from the source. It is intended to be a low carb recipe- its author maintains a low-carb regimen- but now that I’ve published it here, there is apparently some contention over whether or not that [...]

English Muffins

[updated 8/8/2010: edited, and now with photos!] It took me a while to actually follow through on the comment from this post, but I finally made my own English muffins. The dough for English muffins is softer and stickier than your usual bread dough. During the second rise, you form the muffins and let it [...]

This recipe was passed along to me by my sweetie Dragonia.  It’s definitely not the sort of thing Jack and I usually eat around the House of Cards, but I was intrigued by the use of nutmeg in conjunction with bruschetta-like ingredients, and it made for a nice change-up.  Depending on your own culinary history, [...]

Kumquat Nut Bread

Lipby and I went to Florida this past winter to visit his parents. We arrived, coincidentally enough, during the Kumquat Festival, and we just had to go. We all took a shuttle bus into Dade City, and were treated to kumquats, whole and in various preparations. Lipz and I bought a huge box of meiwa [...]

“Whataya want for lunch?” I ask Jack, from the kitchen. He turns his head to look at me and lowers the Wii controller, instead of just flicking his eyes to the side, or ignoring me;  it means he’s actually hungry.  “I dunno,” he replies, shrugging.  “What do we have?” I heave the dirty pan from [...]

Pulla

I usually make cookies for the holidays. I don’t know why, but this year, I didn’t feel like making the multitudes that I usually do. I saw photos of Pulla last year on Tastespotting, and thought to myself, “I’ll make those for next year.” So, I’m giving this Finnish bread to Lipby’s family this year [...]

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Baking bread has always been something that intimidated me. I’ve made my share of failures– rounded lumps, hard as a rock, completely inedible. It took me a while to understand how to work with yeast. I’ve become a fan of proofing yeast to make sure that it’s still active. I’ve included how to do this [...]
