toasted bread with homemade butter

Homemade Sandwich Bread

Making your own bread is also really easy to do. It takes a few hours to make bread from start to finish, but most of that is for the actual rising and baking. There's very little real hands-on time. This recipe makes two one-pound (i.e. standard size) loaves of bread.

Frozen Chocolate Mousse

OK, this started with a recipe I spotted in Cook's Country magazine for easy chocolate ice cream. You know I'm a sucker for unusual, short-cut recipes that promise delicious results. I couldn't resist giving it...

Buttermilk Pull Apart Rolls with Toasted Pecans and Bacon

Here's my take on a popular recipe for Buttermilk Cluster rolls. These rolls are crusty on the outside, soft and moist on the inside—and dotted with bits of bacon and toasted pecans.

Loaf of orange pound cake

Orange Pound Cake

Warning: Baking this cake will fill your kitchen with the irresistible smell of oranges. This is a slightly modified version of a recipe I saw recently in Saveur. It's a buttery pound cake shot through with freshly grated orange zest and soaked with sweet orange syrup.
everything you need for roasted marrow

Roasted Marrow Bones

Roasted marrow bones are a simple, delicious treat that's surprisingly easy to make at home. Just roast the bones, then scoop the marrow out, spread it on toast, and top it with a little parsley salad. Voila: Instant carnivorous bliss.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

These brownies are dark, fudgy, and shot through with ribbons of smooth peanut butter—and dotted with bits of molten chocolate. This recipe could feed an army. If you have a strong sense of self preservation, cut the recipe in half and make it in a smaller baking dish.

Easy Baked Tortilla Chips Dusted with Spicy Chipotle Salt

This is like cheating, it's so easy. In fact, it kind of IS cheating, since I didn't make the tortillas from scratch. No matter. This is a fast and simple way to make delicious, spicy tortilla chips.
