French Bread Pizza

Yum… bread. And cheese. My two favorite things smooshed together. This french bread pizza is the absolute easiest thing. I made it over the summer when I realized I had a pack of pizza sauce, but wasn’t really feeling like normal pizza. Kyle and I loved it (I judge how much Kyle likes something by how much he eats – he ate almost a whole half). I have a Halloween potluck coming up and I’m debating between bringing something like this or cupcakes…

Cheddar and Chive Beer Bread

Is there anything better than cheese and bread? No. There is not. Besides, perhaps, chocolate.

I’m awake early. Earlier than I’m usually awake on the weekends. I adore sleep. I wish I could be one of those people who thinks “you can sleep when you’re dead!” and fight to stay awake each moment. But… I’m not. I love snuggling up in my blanket and reading a good book until I pass out. I actually just finished my “for fun” book (which I only allow myself to read before bed) and I wasn’t too impressed. May write a post about it once I collect my thoughts, or you may have to live in suspense forever.

Anyway. Bread. Yes, we were talking about bread, weren’t we? Whenever people ask me, “if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you pick?” I usually answer bread. or cheese. or créme brûlée. Bread is perfect in its simplest form (no.. not white sliced bread from the grocery store) or more complex. My ma made this while I was home over break and I probably ate half of the loaf. The recipe is incredibly easy (for some reason, having to let bread rise intimidates me) and doesn’t require any special supplies. If you’re a new bread maker and are slightly intimidated (like me) you should give it a try.  Continue reading

Cheesy Pull-Apart Bread

I love cheese. I love bread. I love garlic. What could go wrong? Nothing. I’ve had my eye on this recipe for awhile, thanks to pinterest and I decided to make it one afternoon after my family visited. My mom is always so sweet and leaves me with tons of delicious food to eat each time she visits. When she and my Aunt Kathy stopped by and left a loaf of yummy looking bread, I decided to give this a try. Continue reading

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

Ahh… tomorrow is Labor Day. The day I’m supposed to have no work or responsibility and relax (aka catch up on my ridiculous amounts of readings). Right?

Wrong.

Unfortunately, I have to work all day tomorrow (10-5, not too bad). Good thing? I love my job and the people I work with are incredibly friendly and all around fun to talk to. Better news? I’m bringing in food to brighten everyone’s day.

I always buy bananas in the hopes that I will eat them and be healthy. Fruit = instant healthy in my book. However, bananas go bad so dang quick, so I find myself making sugary banana bread every month. Kinda’ the opposite of healthy, but still fruit!
