White Bread with Poolish

This White Bread with Poolish is one of my favorite artisan loaves to make. I love the open crumb and crunchy crust, and the method for making this bread is pretty foolproof. 


White bread with poolish


The crust of this White Bread with Poolish crackles for a long time after the bread emerges from the oven. I feel compelled to listen to it until it quiets down.

This fennel, pomegranate, and arugula (and other baby greens) salad is both gorgeous and delicious. The salad is super crunchy from the fennel and the celery, and the honey mustard vinaigrette with champagne vinegar is tangy and delicious.

What are the ingredients in these game day cookies? 

  • There are mini pretzels, which you break up by hand, but not too much. Don't crush them because you want actual pieces of pretzels in these cookies.

English Madeira Cake

This English Madeira Cake is moist and lemony. It reminds me of pound cake, only better. 


English Madeira Cake with a lemon glaze and candied lemons on top

This Madeira cake does not include Madeira wine. Instead it is supposed to be served with it at tea time. I'm kind of liking the idea of fortified wine in the afternoon with a little bit of cake.

Extra Cheesy Garlic Bread

This extra cheesy garlic bread is pretty much soul saving. I mean.... look at it!


Extra Cheesy Garlic Bread

As much as I love homemade bread, this time I bought a loaf of crusty French bread for this cheesy garlic bread because seriously, this bread is all about the cheese.

Cod Chowder with Bacon

This Cod Chowder with Bacon, loaded with Yukon gold potatoes and a bite-sized pieces of cod, will warm you up and fill your tummy on a snowy day. 


Cod Chowder with Bacon, loaded with Yukon gold potatoes and a bite-sized pieces of cod

I live in the Los Angeles area where snow is really rare, as in almost never. However, we have just had a whole week of rain and temperatures in the 50s (also known as "freezing" around here)! This gave everyone a chance to break out cool rain boots, beanies, and pretty wool scarves, and pile our beds with lots of blankets.

How to Make Overnight Steel Cut Oats in the Crock Pot

This recipe for Crock Pot overnight steel cut oatmeal is so easy, and it makes the smoothest and creamiest oatmeal with no stirring required. Just top them with your favorite fruit, jam, or other toppings.

How to Make Overnight Steel Cut Oats in the Crock Pot

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 lightened up green goddess dip is loaded with tons of fresh green herbs, including basil, chives, tarragon, and parsley. I love the green color.

Lightened Up Green Goddess Dip

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).

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.

A Year of Stir-Fries - and My Favorite Recipes for 2018

To kick off the New Year, I am sharing my most popular bread recipes, my favorite recipes, as well as my favorite stir-fries. 


A Year of Stir-Fries - and My Favorite Recipes for 2018

Every year, I participate in a group called Wok Wednesdays. 


It is a group of people who virtually get together on Facebook and make the same wok dishes each month. We are currently working our way through Grace Young's book, The Breath of a Wok, after having completed Grace's Stir Frying to the Sky's Edge.
