Herb & Garlic Olive Oil Bread

Yes…. another bread recipe lol! I don’t know about you but we love bread…..especially homemade bread. There is just something about sitting down to a meal and having fresh from the oven bread….and the smell… that is an experience all on it’s own!

This is an easy bread to make and I am thinking it could also make for some delicious tasting hamburger buns! I haven’t tried that yet with this bread recipe but I do think it’s high time!!!

I think I cut it way too soon after removing from the oven because I squished it lol!

Cinnamon-Raisin Swirl Bread

I found an awesome sounding Raisin/Cinnamon bread recipe at tideandthyme.com and couldn’t wait to try it!

Raisin/Cinnamon bread has always been Dillon’s favourite bread.  I have literally seen him sit with a fresh loaf and practically inhale the whole thing.  As I was making this, he kept coming upstairs and telling me how good the bread smelled while it was baking, and oh yes, he would take the whole pan lol!
I thought this would be great toasted but I am also going to keep a loaf to make weekend French Toast!

Honey Brown Bread

Yesterday was grass cutting day… meaning 2 1/2 hours on the lawn tractor. My head is never happy with that but being spring, the grass grows like crazy. I put dinner in the crock pot so I wouldn’t have to worry after doing the grass what would be for dinner and I started this bread to have with it!

It looks kind of flat in the picture because I forgot that I usually do this bread in 2 loaves and it spread big time on the pan during the second rising!

Cheese Quick Bread

Once again this past week I was behind schedule when it came time to making dinner. “The Boys” are so used to having homemade (the majority of the time anyway) bread with their dinner. Well, this night I hadn’t planned ahead enough to make a yeast bread. Luckily I had this recipe to fall back on.

I have been making this recipe for 20+ years now. I found it way back then in a cheese mini cookbook I got in the mail from somewhere. I don’t recall who sent out the mailing but I had used that recipe so many times it was starting to fall apart and I had to rewrite it on a piece of paper to save it!

This bread is quick to mix up and takes less than an hour from start to finish!

Gluten Free Banana Bread

Has anyone else been having issues getting into Editor to write your posts?  Yesterday I couldn’t get into it at all… today I can only get in to write/edit posts through Chrome for some reason…. and I never use Chrome.

It meant I had to go “post-less” yesterday!!!

Below is what I was supposed to post yesterday!

Here is another gluten free recipe I tried. I have to say that this banana bread smells even better baking than my regular recipe does for some reason lol? This time I added raisins to the banana bread but you can skip that or add nuts or chocolate chips or whatever else you like in your banana bread.

It was thoroughly enjoyed by the recipient and something I will keep making but it might be a good idea to slice it and freeze it in individual slices. A whole loaf of banana bread would be difficult for one person to eat on their own!

Somehow I completely forgot to take pictures of the banana bread after it came out of the oven.. too many things on the go I think but it is delicious regardless of pictures.

Gluten Free Garlic Flat Bread/Breadsticks

A family member has been diagnosed with Celiac Disease, something that seems to have gone mainstream since we first learned of the diagnosis.  While there is now a ton of gluten free food items on the market, I have been told they are for the most part inedible!

I thought I would take it upon myself to try my hand at some Gluten Free baking to hopefully make something not only edible, but enjoyable!

I will be posting recipes here and there that I have done, using gluten free ingredients and I would have to guess… learning a whole lot about what can and can’t be eaten!

I thought I would start with this recipe, not only because of the simplicity but also because…. how can you go wrong with anything garlic lol!  I decided after I had taken my ingredient’s picture that I wanted to add some grated parmesan cheese to the tops of the flat bread/breadsticks for just a little bit more flavour…. after typing it into a search engine to ensure it too was gluten free.

NOTE:  I think these would also be great with a little bit of tomato sauce and more mozzarella cheese to make a sort of pizza!

Homemade Hamburger/Sandwich Buns

Last week I FINALLY got my new tattoo last Friday!!!!  While I was having it done Dillon did the grocery shopping for me.  Needless to say I found all week that I was out of things I shouldn’t have been lol.  I can’t really blame him… he stuck….. and I mean literally stuck… to my list.  Anything I forgot to add didn’t make it into the cart.  One of those things being the buns I usually get to make sandwiches for Dillon’s lunch with.  That meant pulling the KitchenAid out and making my own!

Yes homemade taste so much better… not to mention the smell coming from the kitchen when you are baking them… but some weeks (most weeks) it is just way easier to buy them.  And yes I do know that is very, very lazy!
