Recipe: Breakfast Braid

Basically just another twist on making a breakfast sandwich of meat, cheese, and eggs. This is great if you want to make grab and go slices for breakfast and freeze them or if just want to look like you made a fancy version of breakfast for dinner. This is a super easy recipe that comes…

Recipe: Hazelnut Babka Rolls

These are just mini versions of babka but they’re soooooo good and using Nutella or any other hazlenut spread makes this a breeze. I added a brown sugar cinnamon topping just to bring them over the top (and make them look a little fancier).

Recipe: Oladyi (Yeasted Blini)

I call these blini (because they’re yeasted pancakes) but I had a friend from Belarus recently tell me that these are call oladyi there and that what I think of as blinz are her blini but whatever you want to call them they’re absolutely delicious and they make the perfect canvas for a variety of…

Recipe: Cinnamon Raisin Bread

This is a surprisingly easy recipe with perfect results. I’ve actually made this recipe a few times and incorrectly (!) once and it still came out just right. This bread is great on its own and not too sweet but it’s even better with some jam, butter, or even just a little cream cheese to…

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…
