Challah Bread

My sweet mother-in-law recently treated me to Molly Yeh’s cookbook, and I have to report, my first attempts at her pizza dough (which is actually Jim Lahey’s pizza dough) and challah bread have both been complete successes!  I’ve never before tried to make challah bread because it looked too complex.  When I saw that the recipe was also in …

Breakfast Bowl: Chia Pudding with Fruit

Last month I was feeling like I’ve been in a breakfast rut so I googled healthy breakfast bowls and came across a surprising amount of recipes for chia seed pudding.  I’ve been eating this all week and like it so much that I’m sharing it with y’all. I am probably late to this chia seed game because I thought cha-cha-cha-Chia seeds …

Baked Doughnuts

Baked doughnuts are definitely not fried doughnuts but basically eating a doughnut for breakfast is like eating cake for breakfast so everyone still wins.  This particular doughnut is in fact called a cake doughnut, meaning there isn’t any yeast involved.  You can totally be eating doughnuts in roughly 30 minutes from beginning to end and …

salt cured egg yolks

Waaaaay back sometime last year I can recall seeing a recipe for salt cured egg yolks in one of my magazines.  I remembered thinking; “I need to remember and try this!” and then promptly forgot all about it.  Fast forward to last week, where Lindsay posted this “how to” video on Instagram and I knew I needed …

bacon cheddar twists with soft boiled eggs

OMGGGGGGG.  When Bobby Flay came up with this recipe, he really hit it out of the park.  Homer.  It looks so impressive but is fantastically easy.  Like “serve-it-to-guests” impressive but “you-only-need-30-minutes-to-make-it” easy.  And the twists are the perfect dunking width and length, specifically made for sopping up all that glorious runny yellow yolk.

gluten-free (and crazy good) waffles

Ok, ok, before you head for the hills because these waffles are gluten-free, please know it is a happy coincidence!  Since trying the crispiest-ever-rice-flour-coated-fried-chicken at Pinewood Social, I’ve been wanting to play around with rice flour.  If it can make chicken taste that good, what else can it do?  Well let me tell you, the rice …

Best Quiche Ever

Why is this quiche the Best Quiche Ever? Because I’ve put all my favorite things into it, and so can you. For me it’s bacon (no-brainer), mushrooms, and gruyere cheese. That’s it. Oh and eggs and cream of course. And maybe sautéed the mushrooms in shallots too. For you, maybe it’s spinach, leeks and zucchini? …

Toasted Ciabatta with Ricotta and Sugar Snap Peas

The past seven days have been a bunch of postpartum “firsts” for me. Last week I cared and cooked for houseguests (instead of the other way around), watched my first live rugby match, hosted a small brunch gathering, attended my ladies book(wine) club, took baby P to the grocery store with me, and overall, felt like a normal human being again. PHEW, …

Monkey Bread

Let me begin by saying, this is not from scratch, not even remotely.  I’ve thrown scratch out the window and replaced it with ease these past couple of months… I’ll tell you what, this pregnancy thing is not all it’s cracked up to be… I’m 35 1/2 weeks preggo and I think I’ve spent more time …
