Sourdough Milk Buns

My two favorite breads all in one.  I love sourdough and I love milk bread. This recipe yields a soft and delicious bun that is great for sandwiches or as a dinner roll or just great as a snack. For this bread you need to start with a cooked roux.  You will need 1/4 cup…

Banana Bread

Banana tend to ripen pretty fast in the summer and I don’t like my bananas brown. I often use the brown bananas for smoothies or use them for baking. My favourite recipe would have to be banana bread from the cookbook Company’s Coming. Start the recipe by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. In a…

Baking with Intention. Does bread have feelings?

I have been reading a lot on the internet about intention.  With the power of your mind you can manifest your desire.  I decided to test this theory out and put intention into baking.  Most people bake because they love it.  You see a lot of recipes that say, made with love, or  just add…

Chickpea Flour and Chickpea Flatbread

Friday was a lazy day for me.  All I wanted to do was get some rest but I also wanted a nice tasty snack.  In my search for gluten free breads I stumbled across homemade chickpea flour.  What made this nice was that I could make my own flour.  I always try to have chickpeas…

What the Yucca!

Yucca, tapioca, cassava, the root with many names.  As I went through my eczema elimination diet I had to avoid most bread and potato. I looked for alternatives and found the good old yucca root.  I have always wondered what that weird root was.  It kind of scared me.  That’s when I found out that…

Two Takes on Cinnamon Buns

During my trip to Alaska, I found this recipe book. It had lots of different recipes using sour dough. There was cakes, breads and even cinnamon buns. I wanted to see if sourdough cinnamon buns were better than regular cinnamon buns so I decided to try out both recipes. The sour dough cinnamon bun recipe…

Sour Dough Pop Overs

Everyone has those weeks where they don’t have time to make any sour dough treats and of course who would want to toss out the starter. This recipe is so quick and easy that you would want to make this all the time! All this recipe needs is 1/2 discarded starter (no need to let…

Pizza Pockets, Really??? Really!!

Sometimes you just crave those old school pizza pockets from the freezer.  As kids, our tastes were definitely a lot different than as adults and as our taste buds grow we find that maybe our old favourites are not our favourites anymore. Maybe we know how many preservatives and other things go into it that…

Braided Bread

Braiding bread looks pretty fancy and impressive at any party. It looks difficult to make but is really easy and simple. Start with some pizza dough. I used a sourdough pizza dough (the recipe is below). Roll out the pizza dough to make a rectangle. For ease, place this directly on a baking tray after…

For the Love of Sourdough, La Creuset vs Clay Baker

I recently got a Romertop clay baker from my mom. What is a clay baker?? Clay bakers can be used for slow cooked meals. Normally clay bakers need to be soaked for 15 minutes before baking in the oven. They trap the moist air and help make the food cook at a consistent temperature. I’ve…

Milk and Honey Bread

What can be better before bed than a warm cup of honey and milk. It was always a favourite at my house. We even loved honey and milk so much we ate it with our cereal. I wanted all those memories of honey and milk so I searched for a recipe that incorporated both. Yum…

For the Love of Sourdough: Take 2 Sourdough Millet Rye Bread

For my second attempt at making sour dough, I decided to use some flours I had in my pantry. At one point, I was making, creating and trying a bunch of gluten free recipes. Both my aunt and younger sister was not eating any gluten. It was probably the toughest period of time experimenting on…
