Braided easy egg bread – Pillow-y soft, enriched with both eggs and butter and slightly sweet. Great at breakfast or at dinner. Before I say something else, yes, that is a ginormous braid.

Eggnog chocolate bread | roxanashomebaking.com

Have you ever wondered why books are priced $.1 on Amazon? Really? 1 cent? How bad can that book be to be priced so low. Why not just say it’s free. It’s not like it’s going to make a difference. You’ll still have to pay the $3.99 for delivery. I always wondered that. I still…

Steakhouse Bread

We don’t go often to steakhouse. As vegetarian we need a good excuse to have dinner at Outback or another steakhouse but we do go there when we’re visiting family in South Carolina.

Chickpea Flour Bread

I don’t own a bread machine and don’t see myself using one anytime soon. I think adding everything to a bread machine takes the fun away from seeing how your bread comes to life, starting with the proofing of the yeast, letting it rise, shaping it and finally waiting for the loaf to be baked…

I’m not Irish but I like the green decorations spread throughout the stores and malls. I love the clover light my neighbors are having in front of the house. I wonder which one of them is Irish. My favorite color is green, so it’s no surprise I like St. Patrick. I’m not a big fan…

It’s been more than 24 hours since I took this bread out of the oven. My kitchen still smells like vanilla, orange and chocolate. The smell reminds me of holidays and family gatherings. This bread is probably one of the few traditional Romanian breads. It’s usually made at Christmas and Easter and family events, like…
