Recipe: Sweet Potato Biscuits

Just a little twist on your every day biscuit. I rolled them out too thin (they don’t puff quite as much as without the potato weighing them down). These were really nice but I couldn’t really taste the sweet potato in them. That’s not necessarily a downside but you might want to experiment with adding…

Recipe: Mushroom Hand Pies

These were originally supposed to be empanadas but they got a little confused along the way. They turned out delicious enough that I just called them hand pies and think you should make them anyway.

Recipe: Soda Bread

This is a quick bread recipe that really couldn’t be easier. It doesn’t have any rising time thanks to the baking soda but this also gives it a kind of heavy body which is best eaten day-of. I think the flavor leaves something to be desired (it’s nearly bland) but that might mean I try…

Recipe: Honey and Apple Challah

A twist on classic challah for Rosh Hashanah or if you just want to impress your friends with what amounts to a very fluffy apple cake, this honey and apple challah is really good with a big cup of hot tea or coffee on a cold day. The honey gives it a nice sweetness without…

Recipe: Cheddar and Chive Muffins

These muffins goes really well with simple soup or just as a snack on their own. They come out light and fluffy despite having a lot of cheese in them and he taste is exactly how’d you expect it. This is also a one bowl wonder so it takes all of 10 minutes to come…

Recipe: Gulerodsbrud (Danish Carrot Bread)

I had these great rolls in Denmark last year and I was yearned to eat them again. They’re fairly simple to make and they combine the great taste of sunflower seeds and grated carrots which isn’t something I would have thought to do on my own. They’re a nice hearty roll that could easily be…

Recipe: Sun Dried Tomato Babka

Babka is apparently very trendy right now and this savory version of it is just what you need to impress people at a party I think. The taste is good but nothing mind blowing but with a little bit of cream cheese or toasted, it’s just right.

Recipe: Matzo

I’m going to level with you that if you can just buy matzo where you are, there just isn’t a reason to make it. It tastes pretty close to the same, if not just a touch fresher. In this way the recipe is easy but not amazing. Also if you’re anything like me, you will…

Recipe: Scallion Pancakes

These are like naan on steroids. They’re very unassuming but they were super quick to make and absolutely delicious. I didn’t do a great job at pan frying but they still were crispy and crunchy and completely satisfying. I made the dough the night before and then fried them up in the morning so that’s…

Recipe: Potato and Spinach Knish

These are a total hit, I would absolutely suggest that if you would like to eat bread and potatoes at the same time that you do it in knish form. The dough for these is VERY forgiving and the filling is hearty and homey at the same time so these would be great next to…
