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 [...]

I’ve been on a Korean cuisine kick lately. I think it has a lot to do with living near an HMart– we’ve been buying lots of ingredients to make Korean recipes, with delicious success. It also helps that the salespeople often offer free samples while shopping so that you can try before you buy. I [...]

Pepperoni Bread

I had the urge to bake cookies for the holiday party at work, but was afraid other staff members would feel the same way and then there would be a glut of cookies. Not that I think that’s a bad thing, mind you, but in the interest of providing a more balanced set of foods [...]

Oyako Don

Lipby has asked me to make more Japanese dishes for him, and I’m happy to oblige. Donburi is a meal over rice in a bowl. Oyako is a compound word– oya means parent, ko means child. In this case, it refers to the two main ingredients: chicken and egg. The recipe comes together fairly quickly, [...]

I’ve never been a fan of ground beef in general. I don’t like its consistency. My stomach [...]

Coconut Milk Flan

I had some coconut milk on hand. Lipby loves custard desserts, and I love coconut milk, so this was perfect to make. The hardest part is caramelizing the sugar. Make sure to clean your saucepan while it’s still warm, or else heat it up so that the sugar melts and can be washed out easily. [...]

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 [...]
