My San Francisco Sourdough

I finally have my computer back so I can blog again!!! Our vacation in SFO inspired me to make this bread. I have kept my sourdough starter for about 7 years now and am always looking for ways to use it.  I did a previous post on sourdough english muffins and bread where you can…

San Francisco Sourdough

On our vacation to San Francisco we encountered the Boudin Sourdough Bread Company.  They have a walk through tour where you can watch them making and shaping the bread.  They also have a basket ride for their bread that travels the whole store and stops by the  counter for the attendant to restock.  Pretty clever I…

Bread Day Addendum

I had a request from a viewer for two of the sourdough breads that I made back on bread day.  One for the Pain au Fromage (Cheese Bread) and the other for sourdough english muffins. Just a word about starters: there are a ton of different recipes out there.  I have had a starter since…

Green Tomato Delima

One of the solutions that I came up with is green tomato cheese bread.  I have to admit it was delicious.

The last two choices goes first of course, but they all go within a couple of days. I found a recipe in my CIA cookbook called “Berliner Dough” that sounded a lot…

Crock Pot Bread Pudding

Lately it has been too hot to bake.  I just don’t want to overtax my air conditioner when it’s already running 24/7. So how can a delicious dessert be made if you are not able to bake.  You can try something on the stove, some pudding would work, chocolate mousse if you don’t mind the texture, maybe…

Stew Pasties

What to do with leftover stew? I know it is better the second day, but no one at my house is good at eating leftovers. So I have to find ways of completely re-inventing the original dish, especially soups. So I was browsing on the internet and came across a recipe on one of my favorite cookbook…

Bread Day

I love bread. No food is more versatile and comes in so many varieties. It is a universal love as well, every country has their own version of bread. The united states has wonder bread, France has the baguette, Ireland has soda bread, Italy has foccacia, Turkey has lavosh, China has steamed buns, Ethiopia has injera and…
