Thumbnail for 7525
A copycat recipe for Pizza Hut breadsticks, made from scratch. Chewy, buttery, loaded with seasonings and an easy dipping sauce!

Sunday Sweets: Rockin' Rockabilly
Pin some victory rolls in your hair and break out the red lipstick, ladies, ‘cuz today we’re going ROCKABILLY.

Friday Favs 5/20/16
A few of my favorite new submissions this week.   We do rag on bakers quite a bit over here, so I say, every now and then, why not throw them a bone? Apparently he’s a communal NO I CAN’T SAY IT.   That is exactly what the customer asked for, btw, and let me tell you, Bridgett-the-baker was very happy to see this orde [...]

Bakers Make Passes At Dinos With Glasses
Ever wonder what’s going on back there in the murky recesses behind the bakery counter? No? How ’bout now?   I mean, do you suppose bakers sit around taking bets on who can write the weirdest thing on the stock cakes? (For the neighbor who won’t pick up her dog’s poop in your yard? But then, why would you reward [...]

Baking Basics: Baking Soda vs. Baking...

Thumbnail for 7507
Welcome to another Baking Basics installment! Today we’re tackling the subject of baking soda vs. baking powder. Nearly every baking recipe includes one of these (or both!) and if you’re like me, you may have wondering why some recipes call for one or the other and if it’s possible to make substitutions. Baking soda and baki [...]

All white, roses… I’ll be darned if this isn [...]

These reuben rolls feature pizza crust stuffed with corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and a caraway-seed dressing. They will disappear in a matter of minutes! When I go out to eat, I naturally gravitate to two sections on the menu (especially if it’s lunchtime): burgers and sandwiches. Part of the reason is that they’re usuall [...]
