Stuffed Baguette.

Stuffed Baguette.

I found this great recipe for a stuffed baguette on www.bakingobsession.com. It’s probably one of the greatest appetizer inventions I’ve ever seen. They’re cute, non-messy to eat, and can be stuffed with a variety of your favorite ingredients. Try it for a party, potluck, brunch […]

Baked Cinnamon French Toast

Baked Cinnamon French Toast

 I couldn’t choose which photo I was in love with more so I decided to post all of them. I got this recipe from The Pioneer Woman’s website, so check out her process photos if you’re interested. I tweaked it a bit though; I substituted […]

Cheesy Popovers

Cheesy Popovers

Pizza Week – Day 5 – BBQ Chicken, Caramelized Onion and Gorgonzola

Surprisingly, this non-traditional pizza was the winner this week (or at least tied with first place) in my book. The flavors of the toppings complemented each other very nicely. The caramelized purple onions give it a sweet flavor, the barbecue chicken was sweet and tangy, […]

Pizza Week – Day 4 – Sausage, mushroom, tomato and olives

Pizza Week – Day 4 – Sausage, mushroom, tomato and olives

    There’s not much to describe as I already did so in the title. One surprising fact is, when making the sausage bread, I had used 4 links of sausage and 8 oz. of mozzarella. For this pizza, I used 1 link of sausage […]

Pizza Week – Day 3 – Sausage Bread

Pizza Week – Day 3 – Sausage Bread

I decided to try something a little this time. Instead of a standard sausage and cheese pizza I made sausage bread; pizza dough stretched into a rectangle, with a layer of sausage and mozzarella layered on top, then jelly rolled into a loaf and baked […]
