Cloud Bread

I have been wanting to make this recipe for a long time, but then I stopped eating eggs and kind of forgot about it until recently. This weekend I decided to try it out.  It only takes 4 ingredients and doesn’t take that long. It is also a good gluten free alternative to bread. Start…

Savoury Bread Pudding

Sometimes I’ll end up with lots of leftover bread in my freezer. To use up the bread, I love to make savoury bread pudding.  Full of cheese, veggies and custardy bread, this dish is hard to beat. This dish is very versatile and works well with leftovers. Begin with cutting your bread into 1 inch…

Leftover Bread – Shake and Bake

The other day I was helping to host a party and I made some bruschetta and had tonnes of extra bread.  We had to eat it now or eat it later.  Well we saved it for later.  We toasted and stored them in a plastic bag in the fridge. I used my food processor and…

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…

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…

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…

Monkey Bread! Not just for monkeys

  Have you ever wanted a fun way for people to eat food?? Try monkey bread!! Parties and gatherings won’t be the same with this. People can grab a piece and go. To substitute buttermilk, I used plain yogurt and milk. Mix the yogurt and milk until it becomes a buttermilk consistency. In a sauce pan,…

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…

Kombucha Sourdough

You know I love my Kombucha…. and so does Mocha. Here is something else you can make with your Kombucha. Try this the next time you are cleaning the sludge from the bottom of your Kombucha bottle.  All of that cloudy liquid is perfect for bread making as it is the yeasty build up in…

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…
