Chipotle Cornbread

Chipotle Cornbread

I’m starting to feel the slightest chill of fall in the air right about this time of year. Granted, I know that some of you have already experienced some early snowfalls, but it’s still fall in my mind. Fall is the start of comfort food season and soups and chilis start to make more frequent appearances in my kitchen. Naturally, I need something to go ... Read More »

Candied Ginger and Grapefruit Loaf

 This is another one of those recipes that manages to use grapefruit juice instead of lemon or orange juice, both of which appear far more commonly in quickbread recipes, just like the Grapefruit Meringue PieI put together recently. The sweet, cake-like quickbread is very similar to recipes for Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Bread and Orange Cranberry Bread, but uses fresh grapefruit juice and candied ginger ... Read More »

Hazelnut Banana Bread

Hazelnut Banana Bread

Walnuts are a very common inclusion in banana bread. It’s just the way things are. I’ve never been a big fan of banana walnut bread, however, because I think that all the walnuts really start to take away from the banana flavor at some point. Don’t get me wrong here: nuts can add a lot of richness, texture and flavor to a banana bread, it’s ... Read More »

Smokey Blue Cheese Cornbread

Smokey Blue Cheese Cornbread

Blue cheese is one of those things that either you love or you hate. Good quality blue cheeses have a strong flavor, to say the least. Smoked blue cheese has an even stronger flavor still, with the tanginess of the cheese and the strong, smokey flavor that I associate with barbecue. I have had a package of smoked blue cheese sitting in my fridge for ... Read More »

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Once zucchini come into season, they try to take over. They overrun gardens, markets and refrigerators. Fortunately, they are very versatile and can be prepared in a variety of ways. You can add them to all kinds of savory dishes, from sides of roasted vegetables to soups. And, just like carrots (and lettuce!), zucchini has a mild enough flavor and texture that it can be ...

Lemon Coconut Bread

Lemon Coconut Bread

One of my favorite quickbread recipes is the Coconut Bread from bills, Bill Granger‘s restaurant in Sydney, Australia. It’s one of those recipes that works so well as-is that I am never really tempted to stray from making the recipe just as it is written. So, when I had the idea to add some lemon flavor into the bread for a really bright and spring-like ... Read More »

White Whole Wheat Biscuits

White Whole Wheat Biscuits

A simple biscuit is such a great addition to any breakfast or dinner. Most biscuits I come across are made with white flour, either an all purpose flour or a cake flour (or other low-protein flour) in the hopes of producing the most tender biscuit. While I would never turn down a perfectly made biscuit, it is nice to know that you can still make ... Read More »

Skillet Scones (Soda Bread Farls)

Skillet Scones

Soda bread farls are flat breads that are made from the same dough as Irish soda bread, but are cooked in a skillet or on a griddle. They’re triangular and made by shaping the bread dough into a disc and cutting it into quarters before cooking, then cooking each piece individually. The idea is that it is easier to whip up a bread at a ... Read More »
