This sweet potato bread, loaded with lots of deeply caramelized onions, is super moist and flavorful. 


Sweet Potato and Caramelized Onion Bread

This bread is from the book Deep Run Roots by Vivian Howard. It is the bread that she uses for her Elbow Lick Sandwich, which includes smoked corn mayo, pickled red onions, and fresh tomato slices. I can't wait to make the sandwich.

What are steel cut oats? 


Steel cut oats are whole oats that are cut into smaller pieces rather than "rolled." They are wonderful for a "stick-to-your-ribs" breakfast that will keep you feeling full for hours. They are also loaded with fiber. The negative is that they take longer to cook than rolled oats, up to an hour.

This dip is a take on green goddess salad dressing, which was pretty popular in the 1970s (during the hippy crunchy granola days of eating nuts and alfalfa sprouts).

Steamed Piglet Buns

This was my first time making these little steamed piggy buns, but they were easier to make than I expected. I had a little bit of experience making steamed buns and I made the same dough that I used for these steamed buns.
