Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Bread

November 15, 2017 Bread
Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Bread

I’ve really been trying to attack my Pumpkin Pinterest board this Fall, and this Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Bread has been my white whale. It’s not really something you can throw together at 10pm (my usual baking time these days), so I needed a day with no plans to make it happen. And a couple of […]

Chorizo Chili + Cheesy Beer Bread

Chorizo Chili

Ever so slowly, we’re creeping our way toward Spring over here. I’ve downgraded from my DEFCON 1 parka to a lighter coat, and have shoved my winter boots to the back of the closet. I still wanted to get a couple more cold weather dishes in, so I busted out this chili last weekend. Five […]

Brioche Burger Buns

These burger buns have been my white whale. Even though I feel like I’ve conquered my fear of yeast over the past five years, for some reason, this recipe has given me nothing but frustration the handful of times I’ve tried it.  But I didn’t give up! I finally had success with it over the […]

Baked Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

So I have actually made Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls before, but as if I would pass up a chance to try the Baked boys’ recipe! I don’t need that much of an excuse to make spiced, carby goodness, and I mixed these up last weekend, which was Thanksgiving up here in the great white north. This […]

Our Gastropost Mission this week was The Art of Hospitality, which perfectly coincided with having my friends Nicole & Geoff over for brunch to toast their engagement.

Bajan Coconut Bread

  A Caribana Mission! Jump up! But…not so fast. I had some doubts about my ability to make legit jerk chicken, patties or doubles at home…here’s what I had to say: While my fellow Gastroposters made delicious Caribbean meals this week, I decided to play to my strengths and bake something instead.

Strawberry Rhubarb Sweet Rolls {Planet Byn}

I’ve been waiting a whole year to make these! That’s part of the fun/frustration about rhubarb season; you gotta be organized or else by the time you decide what you want to make, you won’t be able to find any! This year though, I was planning my rhubarb recipes as far back as April 3rd, […]

Shaved Asparagus Pizza {Gastropost Mission #54}

June 4, 2013 Bread
Shaved Asparagus Pizza

Guys, I’ve been a pizza making NINJA lately! I finally have my method down pat, and after so many years of being afraid of yeast, it’s nice to have this under control. Also, for future reference, if you defrost frozen pizza dough, refreeze it, and defrost it again, it’s totally fine. And so, I finally […]

Hot Cross Buns

Happy Easter! I had an amazing Easter dinner tonight (preceded by an Easter egg hunt in my childhood park!) and am currently on the couch digesting, in disbelief that tomorrow is April 1st. Back at the end of February, I made one goal for March: Hot Cross Buns or BUST. They’ve been on my to-bake […]
