Baking Bites for Craftsy: Cheesy Garlic Bread

Cheesy Garlic Bread

I enjoy soups all year round. During the summer, I tend to lean towards gazpacho or salmorejo, and other cold soups. Throughout the fall and winter, I prefer hot soups. No matter what type of soup I’m enjoying, I always pair it with a good bread that I can dip into the soup. On days when I want something a bit heartier than bread alone, ... Read More »

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 »

Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Maple Butter

Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Maple Butter

I am a firm believer that stuffing should have both a simple ingredient list and a crispy top ... Read More »

They’re tasty, and putting together a batch is actually very quick and easy – especially when you compare it to relatively time consuming alternatives, like making yeasted dinner rolls. Biscuits are usually made to be plain, with all of their flavor coming from butter, buttermilk or cream included in the dough. As a result, they can be served with all ... Read More »

Mojito Fruit Salad

Fruit is a wonderful snack on its own, but when it comes to serving, it’s nice to be able to do something a little more interesting than just setting out a bowl of apples or grapes – especially when we’re coming up on Memorial Day and the summer barbecue/party season. A fruit salad is an easy way to dress up fruit as a side dish ... Read More »

Cranberry Apple Sauce

homemade cranberry apple sauce

 I recently found myself with an apple overload in my kitchen. This rarely happens to me since I tend to go through apples very quickly (eating them plain, in pies, in crumbles, etc.), so I decided to take advantage of the situation with a recipe that calls for quite a few apples: applesauce. Applesauce is one of those foods that is so easy to make, ... Read More »
