Homemade Hamburger Buns

I’ve said in previous posts that I did not like homemade hamburgers when I was growing up because my dad would add big chunks of peppers and onions and then he’d over cook them until they were dry and round little balls of charcoal. He would then put the overcooked burgers between two slices of…

Perfect Sandwich Bread

I know we are all trying to watch the carbs, the gluten and the “white” foods but for real, bread is my thing and I just gotta have good white bread to dip into marinara or make a great sandwich or to eat straight from the oven while I hide in my pantry. I have…

Easy French Baguette

Soft Homemade Buns

Ok, so I have to post my bread recipe as my first published recipe. The story here starts with my Grandma. She was a woman wit a strong personality and opinions to match; when she would visit if someone said something she didn’t like, she would hum. She had five daughters including my mom and…
