I wasn’t really sure what to call these. I’m just starting to try to make different kinds of bread, and the ones that Bo really wanted me to figure out are the kind you get at Logan’s Roadhouse in the US. These did not turn out like those buns. What I have stumbled upon though is a fantastic burger and sandwich bun! Like, really fantastic. I’ve made them a few times now too, just to make sure that my screw up wasn’t a one off (it wasn’t, these are definitely dense like a burger bun and not light as air like those sweet rolls, a problem for another day).

I figure if anything with bacon is a win, than adding cheese should just be a double win, right? I mean, I’m really not sure there’s much else that could be done with this to improve it, and I wasn’t even sure what a strata was before this morning. I just really wanted to use my new skillet, and I wanted to make an entire breakfast in one dish. Needless to say, I was more than pleased with myself when it was finished.

Seriously, this is THE easiest bread I think you can make. I am terrified of making bread, it always goes back to this one time a couple of years ago that I tried to make an Italian loaf and it turned out like a skinny rubber snake. An experience like that can scar you.
I came across this recipe on Pinterest here, and she found it on a couple of other sites, but as far as I can figure out it originated from Le Creuset. Makes sense seeing as it bakes in a Dutch oven.

I’ve pretty much come to the realization that there are 8,752 ways to make garlic bread, and that there are inherent problems with each and every one of them.
I’ve made bread that’s soggy and dripping with butter, some that gets its garlic flavor strictly from granulated versions (and it shows), some that really have no discernible garlic flavor, and some that tastes that like you bit into a raw clove. I’ve tried whole loaves of bread split in half, stuffed, partially sliced and fully sliced, and I’ve added every type of cheese there is. Oh yeah, I’ve also bought just about every one available at a store too. I’ve made bread that took 5 minutes, and bread that took two hours, and still, problems with every one of them.

Oh, hello blog.
Um, it’s not you, it’s me…
So, I’ve been completely absent for the last three weeks. Lets just chalk it up to holiday madness and my desire to get onto a ridiculously regimented schedule as a new year resolution. It only took me three days (and the 5 am rising of my children), to adapt to it enough to get a blog post up.
Here’s what I consider the gem of my holiday cooking, and surprise, it’s not a cookie. I figured out a way to make a pizza with a chewy, airy crust that doesn’t need to rise, and is ready to eat faster then you could get one delivered.

Alright folks, it’s time to start thinking Christmas baking. Most of my baking I’ve got down pat from the past few years of trial and error, but it just wouldn’t be the holidays without trying to find a few new things. Also, what would be better to pass out to family on Christmas Eve then some loafs of bread to enjoy with breakfast the next morning.

I was in a bit of a bind for breakfast this morning. I’d been out of bread all week, a combination of forgetfulness last week when shopping and laziness this week in not wanting to load up the kids and run out, in the rain, only to buy bread. I did finally tonight, but I was not up for it this morning.
Oliver had already eaten pancakes, waffles and Dutch babies (aka puffy oven pancakes) this week, so I was quickly running out of options. I should mention here that my son will not eat eggs, so those easy omelets, scrambled, or over easy options aren’t options for me. I’m really got to find a way for this child to enjoy eggs.

I used to always make French Toast what I thought was the standard way. Throw a bunch of eggs in a bowl, whisk them together with a splash of milk and some cinnamon and cook them in a non-stick skillet. I still think that there’s a place for this style too. It’s nice and easy and there’s less clean up.
Now though, on the weekend when I’m up early and looking forward to a family breakfast I make it this way. It just gives the toast that extra punch…and a very similar flavor to bread pudding, something this girl with a touch of British blood can’t get enough of!

So, I’m pregnant, and being so I get cravings. Frequently this time around, and a couple of weeks ago all I wanted were the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuits. I’d been down this road before, and I’ve tried many of the online versions only to be disappointed, so at least I knew what not to do.
I pulled out the standard ingredients, including biscuit mix, only I didn’t have any biscuit mix. Dun dun dun.
Panic like whoa.

I’m asking a favor today: Don’t just me because I give this to Oliver for breakfast, and snack, and just whenever he wants it. Ignore the chocolate and focus on the fact that it’s full of zucchini and applesauce. And it’s delicious. So, so delicious!
