Greek Olive Bread Twelve Loaves

I’ve had a deep, abiding love affair with all things olive going way back to my kid days when I used to snarf them down like normal  kids chowed down on M&Ms. (Who needs chocolate when you’ve got kalamatas, right?) It’s been an unshakable love that’s withstood assaults from all sides over the years, most […]


Roasted Red Pepper Bread Bread Bakers

Hello, Gorgeous! This roasted red pepper bread ranks right up there as one of the prettiest breads I’ve ever made. I mean, that color alone is to die for. I’ve definitely got a thing for oddly colored breads—black, purple(ish) and so on—but this one takes the cake. Or more accurately, the loaf. The orangey-red is […]

Crunchy Seed Braid Bread Baker

Seedy: inferior in condition or quality, shabby, run-down. Definitely not. somewhat disreputable.  Don’t think so. slightly unwell, debilitated. Nuh uh. containing or full of seeds. Oh yeah, baby! Especially if that thing containing or full of seeds is a bread. Seeds is (are?) the theme for this month’s BreadBakers challenge, chosen by our host Karen of Karen’s Kitchen Stories. […]

Rosemary Parmesan Flatbread Crisps Twelve Loaves

And the theme for this month’s Twelve Loaves challenge is…Summer Herbs! I batted around a few ideas–all of them involving rosemary because that’s pretty much the only thing that’s survived this year’s pathetic attempt at a garden–and finally decided on a crispity, crunchity flatbread. Because who doesn’t love a good flatbread? Especially one that’s full […]

Black Bread And Carrot Hummus

SING WITH ME! They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky. They’re altogether ooky…the, uh…breads that you bake with bamboo charcoal powder! Okay, so it kind of loses something here but you get where I’m going, right? Because what could be more ooky and spooky than black bread? And I mean BLACK bread. Definitely the […]

Hapanleipa Finnish Sour Rye Bread Bread bakers

Way back when I was a snotty pre-teen know-it-all who scoffed at the notion that a mere movie could scare me, I remember staying up late one night to watch The Birds on TV. Well. Not only did it make me cry but afterwards, I refused to turn the lights off at night and insisted […]
