Really good bread…four igredients, ok five, but one is optional

 Okay, so here is something about me you likely do not know…I was once one of these people that thought making homemade bread was difficult. Well, it’s not. And even after I had mastered it and became somewhat obsessed with making it I still thought it was impossible to make a really good loaf usingContinue reading “Really good bread…four igredients, ok five, but one is optional”

Seven is the lucky number…

This is one of my favorite loaves of bread and it is so easy to make. The beauty of it is that it only has seven ingredients, and–unlike most supermarket breads–all of the ingredients are easily recognizable and understandable. If you want to get real bare-bones you can pare this recipe down to just fourContinue reading “Seven is the lucky number…”

Rice-and-Beans…but bread

Yup, it’s true…rice-and-beans, but made into bread. I, as you likely know, eat a lot of bread. So I often try different combinations to make a healthier bread. Some say that rice-and-beans are a perfect food. Well, I’m not so sure about that, but they are really good. Anyhow, this recipe is not unlike myContinue reading “Rice-and-Beans…but bread”

Whole Wheat Bread with Caramelized Onion and Sweet Potato

This is yet another variation of my 100% whole wheat bread recipe…and a delicious one at that. This does entail an extra step (sauteing the onion and sweet potato until caramelized) but it’s worth it. After cooled, they are added to the dough while being kneaded and they melt into the dough offering a softContinue reading “Whole Wheat Bread with Caramelized Onion and Sweet Potato”

The Simplest Loaf…

I’ve posted this recipe before but not in a little while.

Bread!

I made this bread tonight. Made the preferment while I took a nap after work, mixed the dough before I went to the health club, and baked it while I ate dinner. Beautiful, delicious, and easy to make. And it is, of course, made with 100% whole wheat flour. Honey-oatmeal. I’ve posted this recipe–and variationsContinue reading “Bread!”

Three Loaves and a Pie…

I haven’t posted this recipe in a while and I made it this morning so I thought I’d re-post it (as it is one of my favorites). It’s my basic whole wheat bread recipe with the addition of oats…delicious and nutritious. And is often the case, after the first rise of the dough (before IContinue reading “Three Loaves and a Pie…”

Ezekiel Bread; a meal in itself. I’ve posted this recipe a few times prior, but not in quite a while.

Fourteen Bean, Grain, and Legume Bread (a meal in every slice)

I’ve posted this recipe some time ago but it is so easy to make and so delicious that I thought I would re-post it. This is really a variation of my Ezekiel Bread recipe (click here or here) but somewhat simplified in that you boil the beans all at once rather than in stages. AndContinue reading “Fourteen Bean, Grain, and Legume Bread (a meal in every slice)”

Whole Wheat Chickpea Turmeric Bread (yum!)

I haven’t posted this bread in a while, in fact I haven’t made it in a while, but here it is. Delicious and healthy, it is also easy to make. Like any of the Ezekiel Bread Recipes or other whole grain recipes, the chick peas basically dissolve (or get mashed) into the dough as itContinue reading “Whole Wheat Chickpea Turmeric Bread (yum!)”

Two Breads and Two Recipes

This is a continuation of this post where I listed a recipe for grissini. As I had mentioned, I am currently reviewing this book (which I highly recommend thus far) and have been testing a few of the recipes…so here’s a couple more. The recipes listed below–though originally derived from the book in mention–were borrowedContinue reading “Two Breads and Two Recipes”

Parmesan and Black Pepper Grissini

Pencil-thin breadsticks…grissini. Beautiful, aren’t they? Easy to make, too. These are coated with Parmesan and black pepper making them even more tasty. But you may be wondering why I am making bread with refined flour (opposed to whole wheat). Well, I do now and again. But the real reason is that I just received thisContinue reading “Parmesan and Black Pepper Grissini”
