Back Up and Running – With a (5K) Challenge

Hi, everyone! I’m back in action, and I’m sorry for my recent prolonged absence. Work, children’s and my travel schedule has overwhelmed me lately, and I’ve had some technical difficulties here on LOAF that have taken too much time to iron out. But I’m smooth now, and am back baking with you this week! Behind… [Read More...]

Hot Buttered Pretzels

Hey, is this thing on? Oh, good. Happy Monday, everyone! It’s been so crazy around here the last two weeks that I feel like a pretzel. More on what I’ve been up to shortly. In the meantime, I’m sharing my new love. I didn’t mean to fall. It was an accident. Still, the Yeast Cupid got… [Read More...]

Pesto Parmesan Dinner Rolls

Pesto Parmesan Dinner Rolls

Rolls, rolls, beautiful rolls. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Wait, you’re packing basil pesto? Sporting parmesan cheese on top? Those are two more BIG ways. Fluffy, tender, best served warm right out of the oven, I baked these to go with a stuffed portabella-and-greens dinner not long ago and they stole… [Read More...]

Goin’ Back in the Day

Goin’ Back in the Day

I am now, at long-last, complete. It’s been a week since my family and I hit Savannah, Georgia in search of beautiful town squares (22 of them), ghosts, history, unique shopping and great bread and cupcakes (O.K., also barbeque, homemade pralines, crabcake sandwiches, brownies, banana pudding, pizza – hey, it’s vacation). To that end, I… [Read More...]

Rustic Cheddar Pecan Rounds

Rustic Cheddar Pecan Rounds

As Cheryl and Griffith Day explain in their new Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook, southerners love cheese. And I love southerners, specifically, Savannahians (more on my visits to Savannah and BITDB, specifically, coming up on Friday). Now I’m back home in the midwest and pining for the south, so of course I’m flipping the… [Read More...]
