MANLY Cheese and Herb Beer Bread

I was recently challenged to share a recipe that is not only easy, but manly. And well, what could be more manly than BEER? Nothing. It’s how chest hair is born. What I love about beer bread is that it takes just a handful of ingredients, you can make the dough in one bowl, and it cooks up in no time at all. Just mix and bake. Simple as that. You can also throw in any add ins that strike your[Read more]

Happy Monday everyone! If there is such a thing… Today I have for you these be-a-utiful conchas! As you may or may not know, I’ve been on a bit of a Mexican kick lately as I await a much needed vacation there in May. If you missed it, here is my favorite salsa recipe. And here is my take on the drool-inducing Mexican dessert known as tres leches. But for now, take a look at these cuties: So vibrant! So sweet and fluffy![Read more]

How to Make Kolaches: Texas Style

kolaches featured

When I first moved to Texas I remember being very perplexed by the cuisine. Specifically breakfast foods. For example, “steak and eggs” made no sense to me since steak was clearly a dinner food. And if we’re all just supposed to accept that it’s proper to eat steak for breakfast, then why is “chicken and waffles” served for dinner? So confusing. 😛 Don’t even get me started on “chicken fried steak” and the uber-redundant “chicken fried chicken.” But today’s post is[Read more]

Brown Butter Apple Bread with Brown Sugar Glaze

apple bread overview

I’m not going to lie to you. This is the best dessert bread I’ve ever made in my life. Hopefully it will be one of the best dessert breads that you make in your life too. Is it close enough to the holidays where we stop caring about our figures yet? AWESOME! Because I think the brown butter, sour cream, and copious amounts of brown sugar are what make this bread so to die for. It has some healthy stuff[Read more]

Tear and Share Italian Sausage Stuffed Bread


It’s football season! Which really means nothing to me at all other than I get to eat some yummy food every Sunday for the next few months. KnowwhatI’msayin’?  No disrespect to football fans, of course, I’m just more of a gymnastics gal 😛 Anyway, I’d grown tired of all the same football food over and over. Wings, pizza, sausage, burgers, etc. I felt it was time to change it up. After wrecking my brain for a good five minutes, this stuffed[Read more]

Italian Piada (Piadina) Flatbread

Remember last week when I was barely able to make Pita Bread? Oh, you’d already forgotten? Perhaps I should have just left it alone then…oh well. I planned to take another stab at it, but then I thought, “Why not try making piadas instead?” Piadas (or piadinas) are so new to my life that I don’t even know if piadas is the plural form of piada (I just Googled. It’s piade.) I’ve mentioned before how an Italian street food place opened[Read more]
