Bread Pudding Muffins

imageIt almost doesn’t seem right kicking off the month with this recipe – it’s so easy and sinful with pretty much no work. The Grand Central Baking Book recipe calls for “crusty artisan white bread” so when I ran across some from one of Seattle’s other famous bakeries in Columbia   City, I knew it was fate.  Read more…

Dreamy Lemon Curd

Lemon curd is so sweet and delicious and can be used in so many ways. I’m sure once you learn how to make it, you will keep a jar of it in your refrigerator at all times.

Brioche Pear Bread Pudding…with Chocolate!

I don’t feel like as American’s we grew up knowing much about Bread Pudding (at least I didn’t). So, when I came across this recipe by Martha Stewart I couldn’t wait to give it a try. I was initially drawn to it because she uses Brioche bread, and I love Brioche bread (who doesn’t). If you haven’t tried it, Brioche is a French pastry bread that has a high butter and egg content so it is deliciously fluffy and flaky at the same time. It is perfect for dessert recipes, or even just for French toast. In the South, bread puddings are typically served with whiskey or use, served warm, and with a nice dollop of fresh whip cream. There’s no whisky in this recipe, but I think Martha makes up for it with the chocolate! Also, and I know I say this a lot, but, this recipe is so EASY and looks so FANCY!  Read more…

Going Bananas

Here’s one you may have missed. Summer bananas can get forgot about since the berries tend to take center stage…use this recipe and you’ll be happy for brown bananas!

Best Banana Bread

There are so many great recipes for banana bread, but I generally stick with a slightly modified version of the America’s Test Kitchen recipe, because it comes out perfect every time (although, I have yet to try Julia’s recipe).
