    Easy Homemade Pizza Dough

    Homemade pizza dough is something you can make with a few simple ingredients and a little time. It’s an easy process and the end result yields the best pizza dough and a delicious, chewy hard-to-beat thin, classic or thick crust! We eat a lot of pizza in our house. Sometimes that pizza’s homemade and other times it’s delivery or pick-up. I even keep a Tombstone in the freezer for those times we want a late-night snack or an easy dinner that requires minimal effort. There’s no wrong way to do pizza. (Bad pizza exists, yes, but you know what I mean.) There is, however, one very right way to do…

  • Finlandia Imported Butter - perfect for slathering on homemade bread!

    Easy Homemade Bread Recipes To Enjoy With Imported Finlandia Butter

    This yummy post about homemade bread recipes and imported butter is sponsored by Finlandia Butter. Is there anything better than warm, crusty bread and creamy, melty, gourmet imported butter? I’d argue that bread and butter is one of the best food pairings on the face of the planet, especially a crusty homemade bread that’s fresh out of the oven…still steaming. The butter melts into the crevices, and all the little nooks and crannies, dripping down your chin with each soft and chewy bite. It’s divine, really. Easy Homemade Bread Recipes Making loaves of French and Italian bread at home isn’t as hard as you think. (I know! I was surprised too, before…

  • This warm and comforting vegetarian sausage stuffing will please a crowd!

    Vegetarian Sausage Stuffing

    This warm and comforting vegetarian sausage stuffing will please a crowd! We do two different Thanksgivings and Christmases every year. It’s a result of having both sets of parents close-by in Maryland, and also other family members that now live out of town. I’ve grown up celebrating this way, so in a way it’s nostalgic to spread the holidays out instead of being laser-focused on one specific date. It can also be wonderfully exhausting. My sister and brother-in-law are both vegetarians, and our huge holiday spreads include plenty of dishes for both meat eaters and not. It helps that even those of us who do enjoy a roast turkey, also love…

  • Homemade hamburger buns—they're easier to make than you think, and are oh-so-good!

    Homemade Hamburger Buns

    Homemade hamburger buns are easier to make than you think and oh-so-good! I recently stumbled upon a recipe for burgers from the blog A Duck’s Oven. Even though those burgers looked juicy and delicious, I found myself drawn to the perfectly golden brown, light and airy, HOMEMADE hamburger buns. So later that day, I also shared A Duck’s Oven’s recipe for Homemade Burger Buns on my Facebook Page. And a couple days after that, my sister asked me, “Didn’t you post a recipe for homemade buns? We want to make them.” I immediately (being the good sister that I am) dug up the recipe and sent it to Josie, WITH…

    Easy Homemade Biscuits

    Homemade biscuits. Can there be anything more comforting? Okay, I suppose there are a ton of wonderful comfort foods out there that on any given day could trump a warm, homemade biscuit. But sometimes a biscuit is the bee’s knees. It’s the perfect complement to a roast chicken, beef stew, chili, or just served up with breakfast (maybe with some sausage gravy???). The only thing better than homemade biscuits are EASY homemade biscuits, which is exactly the kind of bread recipe I like – EASY. The day I got the itch to make homemade biscuits for the first time, I found a biscuits recipe from Paula Deen that happened to…

  • A homemade Italian bread recipe that doesn't take hours to prep and bake? Yes, it does exist!

    Easy Homemade Italian Bread

    A homemade Italian bread recipe that doesn’t take hours to prep and bake? Yes, it does exist! There’s this little family-owned Italian restaurant in my neighborhood that has {arguably} the best baked ziti ever. For whatever reason, I was craving that tonight, and yet didn’t feel like ordering takeout for Sunday dinner—one of the few days of the week where I actually have time to relax and cook things that are otherwise tough on a busy weeknight. So, with all the necessary ingredients already on hand, I made the ziti. And it was fabulous. I’ll put the simple recipe up soon. Except there was one problem: I didn’t buy a…

  • Who knew making French bread at home could be so easy?!

    Easy Homemade French Bread

    Recently I found myself wanting to try a hand at making some of the forgotten food staples from years ago. Like, homemade French bread. Truth be told, I had a bread maker a few years ago. I LOVED that bread maker. I made loaf after loaf of Italian bread, hearty molasses bread, and other gluten filled treasures. Sadly, that bread maker finally bit the dust and I never fixed nor replaced it. The bread maker was excellent at baking low maintenance loaves of bread. It could even be set to make dough for things like non-loaf Italian bread and French baguettes, traditional shapes that don’t exactly fit the confines of a…
