Cheese Beer Bread

Cheese and beer.  What else do you need in life?  Oh right, and probably bacon.  (There is no bacon here, but there probably should be.) My family is coming over tomorrow for our annual Christmas gathering.  We’ll be watching the Army versus Navy football game.  Go Army!  My dad went to West Point so I’m partial.  Anyway, that means there will be a lot of people over and that means a lot of mouths to feed.  Football is a good excuse to make a huge pot of chili.  Do you see where I’m going with this?  😉 Of course there must …

Challah Bread

Holla for Challah! Challah Bread is uh-mazing.  Let’s see…  It’s a bread, it’s a tad sweet, and it looks gorgeous.  Yeah, it’s just freaking amazing. I have to admit that my husband and I had ulterior motives for making Challah.  It’s a secret… until you see it Friday’s post.  Any guesses?  Until then, don’d mind me if I take a slice or two and smear some butter on it.  Mmm carbs.  Mmm butter.  Heaven. My husband has made a lovely 3 strand braid Cardamom Bread.  In fact, he’s made it more times than I can count.  Challah bread usually comes in …

Bagels

My boo strikes again with another fab bread recipe and in my opinion one of my favorites! Take it away, Dave… While we were walking into the market to buy flour to make these (yes, even Dave’s Bread Corner occasionally runs low on flour supplies), Tina asked me “should we pick up some bagels for the week?”  I had to remind her that we were only there to buy supplies to make bagels.  🙂 “You actually want to make bagels?” T questioned.  Yup.  I realize that not many people want to take on this challenge, but I’d like to add it …

Whole Wheat Bread

“I want a tomato sandwich,” says my husband.  We have no bread in the house, so what does he do?  My good man makes some. My husband loves a good old fashioned tomato sandwich with exactly three ingredients (tomatoes, mayo, and toasted whole wheat bread) and none of them are optional or interchangeable according to him.  This time when the need arrived we had some delicious on-the-vine tomatoes, a jar of mayonnaise, and a complete lack of whole wheat bread.  Being a guy that loves making bread, this problem merely slowed my boo down.  “I’m making bread,” says Dave.  I say, “Go for …

Rosemary Bread

My husband has made this bread five or six times now and I’ve never managed to stop eating it long enough to take pictures of it.  That ends here.  🙂 Have you ever remembered a particular restaurant because they served you the most amazing complimentary bread ever?  This bread reminds me of something that I’ve had at a fancy restaurant.  The best part about making this bread is that you don’t have to get dressed up to enjoy it.  (And in this case, that my husband was actually the one to make it, even better!) There’s nothing worse than eating …
