Things are looking a bit rough around the edges…

Howdy! Long story short, I just moved my food blog here from another domain and I’m still working on tweaking the theme and whatnot, so things aren’t looking exactly like I want them to. It’ll take a bit of time. But the content’s all here, so feel free to explore and have fun and...

Naan (Flat Bread)

We sure do seem to go through a lot of flat breads in this house. Sometimes, it’s to go with Middle Eastern food, sometimes Indian or Sri Lankan, sometimes Mexican. I have a few different types of flat breads I make, depending on what else I’m making, and this is one of my favourites....

Converting bread recipes from commercial yeast to sourdough (wild yeast)

Making Bread An Easier Way

No doubt the majority of us have believed, at least at one time, that kneading bread dough for 5 or 10 minutes, or longer, was necessary if the bread was going to develop properly and rise. Fortunately, especially for those of us with problem and painful joints, it simply isn’t true. ๐Ÿ™‚ Personally, instead...

Bread Trishaw!

We have a neighborhood bread trishaw. We also have neighborhood ice cream trishaws. ๐Ÿ™‚ This bread trishaw goes through our neighborhood, and others, playing an annoying tune that everyone recognizes as belonging to the bread trishaw. Those who want to buy bread run out to the road with rupees in hand and buy… whatever....

Mutant Escaping Super Bread

Yeah. The bread rose too much – I left it to rise overnight, and it grew about 5 or 6x in volume. Yikes! I’ve had previous experiences with this particular dough not rising much at all overnight, so I didn’t think it would be this much of a problem. But no, it did. And...

Mmm… Curried Chicken Sandwich… Mmm…

I made another batch of Kaiser Soze Rolls, this time with the no-honey substitutions, and it turned out beautifully! Lunchtime came around, so I made myself a sandwich. Kaiser Soze Rolls with shredded curried chicken; bell peppers, cucumber, and onion; and of course homemade mayonnaise. Yum! Tags: lunch, bread, rolls, kaiser rolls, mayonnaise

Kaiser Soze Rolls

I think “life is an experiment” is a phrase I take way too seriously. ๐Ÿ˜€ I needed a recipe for buns – I’d been craving a Subway meatball sub, and since the nearest Subway is in India, I figured the only way I was going to get a meatball sub would be to make...

Wild Yeast Coccodrillo Ciabatta Bread

On the Bread Bakers Apprentice Challenge Twitter stream, there was a discussion about ciabatta breads and how the one in Peter Reinhart’s book wasn’t very wet, which also meant it couldn’t achieve the truly large holes that most people look for in ciabatta bread. @misterrios said: @LMAshton @gaaarp The one I normally make is...
