Artichoke & Gruyere Pull Apart Bread

Just a weird combination for a pull apart bread, isn’t it? That’s what I thought too! But the experimenting bone in me wouldn’t budge and there was no turning back in trying it. I’m so so glad that I tried it and my kids gorged on it without a word and that says it all. Whenever I want to try something new, a peek in my pantry or my freezer would do the magic with Want to know more about this recipe?

Garlic Bread from Scratch!

One of my favorite breads. One that can be made in a jiff if you have store-bought bread in your pantry. But if you don’t have store-bought bread, stop right there! you don’t have to rush to the stores right now. This recipe will show how to make your own bread and then slather that garlic butter and you are good to go. I never knew that home-made garlic bread can taste so so good.

Bolillos [Mexican Rolls]

Me too! I almost twisted my tongue trying to pronounce and I was so drawn to the name that I couldn’t stop my curiosity to get to know this recipe and try them immediately.

Onion & Thyme Focaccia

I love focaccia breads, one of the best breads I’ve ever eaten. I’ve made whole wheat focaccia before, a quick version and the thought of making an authentic one lingered in my mind for long. I usually like the quick, short cut version of a recipe that saves my time and sometimes I do make exceptions like this one. Though the preparation time spans for 2 days it’s totally worth it, you don’t have to Want to know more about this recipe?

Tomato and Olive Whole Wheat Focaccia

Focaccia is an Italian flat oven-baked breads topped with herbs and other ingredients of your choice. It can be considered as a close approximation to pizza but its not the same. I’ve baked breads before and this one has been on my list for quite some time. I am paired with Archana for this month’s blog hop (started by Radhika) and when I saw a recipe for focaccia I couldn’t resist myself from trying it Want to know more about this recipe?

Challah with Cinnamon Sugar/Chocolate Chips/Blueberries

May’s Daring Bakers’ Challenge was pretty twisted – Ruth from The Crafts of Mommyhood challenged us to make challah! Using recipes from all over, and tips from “A Taste of Challah,” by Tamar Ansh, she encouraged us to bake beautifully braided breads. I’ve already made Challah once before and I did a 3 braid straight bread the first time. This time I wanted to challenge myself by making a 6 braid straight, 4 braid straight, Want to know more about this recipe?

Date-Nut Quinoa Breakfast Bread

After making lot of yeast breads the past few days, yeast has become my virtual afternoon friend. Today I decided to leave my friend alone, as too much of anything is not good. I wanted to remember my old friend Mr Quinoa as forgetting old ones is also not good. I had decided on the ingredients but had no clue of what to make for the last day of bread baking theme(BM#15). So after searching Want to know more about this recipe?

Vada Pav -- A Step by Step recipe for pav bread and pan fried vada

Vada Pav is one of my favorite street foods. It tastes heavenly with a soft dinner roll type Pav bread smeared with two types of chutnies (one green and another red) and absolutely divine tasting potato vada. Traditionally the potato vada is deep fried in oil but I got the recipe of potato vada from Sharmiee’s website and I was completely sold by her method to not deep fry the vada but to pan fry Want to know more about this recipe?

Pita Bread

I consider Pita Bread a close relative of Naan. Apart from adding yogurt in the Naan recipe there is minimal difference between Naan and Pita bread. Pita bread makes excellent base for pizza or can be had as a flat bread with hummus on top. If you are lucky and can bake the pita with perfect puffiness then they can be cut in to half with each half as a pocket and filling of your Want to know more about this recipe?
