“Famous” Brown Bread (Cheesecake Factory copycat)

Is there anything better than freshly baked bread? Few things. Okay, well maybe there are lots of things. But freshly baked bread is definitely up there on the list. I bought a whole pound of yeast at the store (it was a good price) so there is a high chance you will see more breads/other…

Challah (Egg Bread)

I love challah. Being Jewish, I’ve eaten a lot of challah growing up. Can’t get enough of it. Funny though, I’ve never made it from scratch before. I should have gotten into the bread baking back when everyone else was doing it. Oh well, better late than never to get in on the action. I…

(Easier than Pie) Soda Bread

I’ve never done much bread baking, I just don’t have the patience to wait for dough to rise or energy for kneading. But, when a quick bread or something similar comes up, I’ll happily make it.

It was just 6 things: toasted baguette, ricotta cheese, diced strawberries, torn basil, balsamic glaze…

Avocado Toast Duo

Mango Bread

I made this cake/bread this morning and am currently eating my second piece right now (shhh, don’t tell anyone). It is a really good cake. I’ve made a banana-mango bread before with white chocolate chips, but the only ingredient I had today was mango, so I had to find another recipe. I found this mango…
