Homemade English Muffins

I am not going to lie – fall baking is consuming my life right now. The weekend weather felt incredibly fall-like. Of course I didn’t dare to set a foot outside my door, but decided to bake up a storm in my kitchen instead. And it felt so good. I am back in my element wanting to make everything from scratch and putting my own spin on things.

On Saturday morning I woke up bright and early to get started on Homemade English Muffins. This was my very first attempt, you guys.

Ever since coming back from our travels, I’ve been wanting to try my hand at breakfast sandwiches. Complete with sausage, cheese, and egg. And when it comes to breakfast sandwiches I am all about English muffins. I’m sorry, but nothing else compares. They perfectly fit into your hand, have the right shape, and deliver on texture, chewiness and all-around goodness. Now that I know how to make my own, I am upping my carb game in the mornings.

Don’t mind if I do! [Read more…]

The Best Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Kicking off the 2015 fall season with iconic Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread. The very best kind I’ve tried. Let’s fall into autumn together!

The Best Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

I’m pretty proud of myself this year. For holding off on fall baking until the unofficial start of the new season. Something that was beyond difficult for me last year and much easier this time around. The hot, hot temperatures and busyness of life towards the end of summer were definite contributors. I am so ready to bring on all things fall now. Though I am not looking forward to the cold days, I am excited for the beautiful colors, apple cider, cozy sweaters and lazy Sunday afternoons watching football… preferably while enjoying a slice or two of this delectable pumpkin bread.

This is my first pumpkin recipe this year since I never got around to posting it last year. I’ve held on to the recipe and knew all along that I would share it with you first thing come fall 2015. Well, here it is in all it’s scrumptious, pumpkiny, and warm goodness. [Read more…]

Pretzel Twists

Made from scratch Pretzels shaped into irresistible Twists.

Pretzel Twists

A good Monday morning is spent talking about carbs in the best possible form. Don’t you agree? So let’s chat about Pretzel Twists. Which is easily my favorite way of enjoying anything pretzel these days. Actually, who am I kidding?! Pretzels in any way, shape or form are perfectly suitable for my palate. I have yet to meet a pretzel I didn’t like. Unless you count my baking fail from a couple of weekends ago when I was left with rock hard and beyond sad-looking pretzel twists. Those ones I seriously didn’t like. But let’s move away from fails and concentrate on my most recent success instead.

After getting to bite into one of these beauties, I was so happy I didn’t give up. Having made regular soft pretzels as well as pretzel rolls in the past, I knew that pretzel-baking wasn’t too difficult and worth every minute. Though it only takes 2 hours from start to finish until you can hold your own in your hands.

If you’re a fellow pretzel lover, then Pretzel Twists are a must! [Read more…]

Happy Monday Morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Besides the fact that the Packers lost their game last night (sniff), we had a wonderful time. The weather has been absolutely beautiful and even somewhat warm the last couple of days. Mid 30’s, lots of sunshine and blue skies seem to bring out lots of smiles. We take anything we can get this time of year and soak up as much of the “warm” breeze as possible, ha.

But I still managed to make some time in the kitchen. For an idea I’ve had swirling around my head for what seems like forever now.

As if bagel bites stuffed with cream cheese weren’t enough, I decided to add Cinnamon Toast Crunch (aka my favorite childhood cereal) to the mix. Literally. Cereal makes up part of the bagel dough, which you can taste with every bite. If that’s not a dream come true, then I don’t know what is.

Let’s dive right in! [Read more…]
