Gooey mozzarella cheese and pesto are swirled throughout a light and fluffy yeast bread to make this Cheesy Pesto Swirl Bread you won’t be able to get enough of! Put a slice in the toaster for a delicious snack.
When I was a kid, I claimed my stomach had three compartments: one for bread, one for dessert, and one for the rest of the foods. Naturally, the bread and dessert compartments were the biggest.
As I’ve gotten older and pretty adept at creating tons of goodies to fill my two favorite compartments, certain things I make tempt me way more than others. As much as I bake sweet treats, my sweet tooth has gotten a lot smaller since I’m constantly surrounded by desserts. Usually, a bite of a brownie or cookie is enough to satisfy my sweet tooth.[Read more…]
These Cheesy Tomato Basil Rolls are packed full of tomato flavor and fresh basil with gooey mozzarella cheese melting out of the middle and a Parmesan crust on top! These are the perfect snack or soup accompaniment.
I’m not a procrastinator. Okay, that’s not true – I procrastinate a little bit, as does everyone, but generally, I’m definitely the kind of girl who gets it done ahead of time. Yet, somehow, I’m sitting here at 8:08 AM, writing a post that was supposed to have gone out at 8. Behind this on my desk top is a cover letter I’m in the middle of writing, a (thankfully) finished case analysis for class today, and a five page draft of a memoir that’s due in one hour and is definitely supposed to be seven pages.
Normally, I would be majorly beating myself about it, filled with anxiety about the standards I’m not meeting. In reality, the “standards” are just really ones I’ve set for myself – and I do think that it is important to set high standards for yourself. For me at least, that’s how I get places. Set a goal, reach it, set another. I’m the same way with my tasks everyday. Sometimes though, like this week, things are just a little too hectic and filled for me to get my hands on everything that needs to get done. Things slip through, panic ensues, and I always get it done before the world comes crashing down. [Read more…]
These Caramel Filled Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins are loaded with caramel filled DelightFulls in moist, chocolatey banana bread muffins! These caramel center makes this easy, one-bowl recipe even more delicious.
These muffins aren’t really the kind of muffin that you enjoy as a healthy breakfast. This is more of a decadent dessert muffin, or the perfect Sunday morning brunch indulgence. And oh my goodness, is it indulgent.
Despite all the sweet, delicious flavors going on here, one special ingredient stands out: the chocolate chips, but mostly because these are not any ordinary chocolate chips. These chocolate chips are filled with caramel. Seriously, each little chip has gooey caramel inside of it. These beauties are the product of Nestle Toll House, and the DelightFulls come in four flavors – caramel (mmm), peanut butter, mint, and cherry. [Read more…]
This Cheesy English Muffin Bread is an easy to make bread that comes together quickly and is full of cheddar cheese! It bakes into a beautiful loaf that’s perfect for toasting.
Editing the pictures of this cheesy english muffin bread is making me seriously wish I had some more of it right now.
I’ve been loving making breads recently (you saw my blueberry bagels a few weeks ago, right?) and I especially love it since I’ve discovered instant yeast. Instead of having to proof yeast, which I always stressed out about, you just stir it in with the flour and add your hot liquid. Voila. Stress free! [Read more…]
These homemade Blueberry Bagels have a sweet blueberry flavor and toast up beautifully! You’ll love having fresh bagels for breakfast, and they take less than 2 hours to prepare.
Blueberry bagels from your ingredient bowl to your mouth in 2 hours? It’s possible, and yes, you should most definitely spend 2 hours of your life, preferably soon, making your own bagels.
If you don’t want it to be blueberry bagels, hope on over to my recipe for asiago everything bagels. They were amazing, and also done in 2 hours. And they had cheese melted all over the top of them, and cheese + bread makes me very happy. [Read more…]
This Pepperoni Pizza Pull Apart Bread features soft layers of homemade bread loaded with tomato sauce, cheese, and pepperoni for an appetizer that’s sure to be a fan favorite.
A certain big game is coming up in just three short weeks for us American football fans. A game that celebrates American spirit, enthusiasm for whatever team you call your own, and the opportunity to be with friends, drink beer, and eat excessive amounts of great food.
While my team is officially out of the race to the Superbowl (c’mon Chargers, step it up this year!), I’m still majorly in it for the food. The best kind of Superbowl food is the kind that’s shareable, delicious, and typically covered with too much cheese. This Pepperoni Pizza Pull Apart Bread totally fits all of those criteria. [Read more…]
This Chocolate Chip Challah is delicious, impressive, and perfect to serve with your Hanukkah dinner or on Shabbat! It will disappear off the table.
I still clearly remember the first time I made challah. It was probably one of my first, if not my first, experience making any sort of yeast bread. I couldn’t have been older than 7 or 8, and I still remember kneading the sticky dough and making a sticky, floury mess all over the kitchen as my sister and I attempted to craft the challah under the guidance of our Hebrew tutor.
I don’t remember how our challah tasted, or if it even ended up looking like a challah, but I do remember making it being so much fun.[Read more…]
Homemade Asiago Everything Bagels are quicker and easier than you’d think – and taste so much better than one’s from the store! You can have these on the table within 2 hours.
Homemade asiago everything bagels. Please don’t look at “homemade” and “bagels” and get nervous – bagels are EASY and I need to share my thoughts as to why you all need homemade bagels in your life.
They taste fresh, with a crispy outside and a chewy crust and a soft, tender crumb. You control the chewiness based on how long you boil them. You can make them ANY flavor you want (I did asiago, asiago + everything, everything, and chocolate chip!). Be creative. And for real: these take like, 2 hours MAX from start to finish. [Read more…]
