(Don’t worry, we were very sensible, there was always a dedicated driver.) We would have our fun and then at 2am in the morning we would drive back to college via the bagel bakery...

Baking Bread Homemade Recipes

No-Knead French Bread loaves have golden, crisp crusts and lightly chewy centers. This homemade bread needs just 90 minutes of total rise time and makes two rustic loaves. It doesn’t require special methods or equipment. (No bread flour needed.)  Yesterday I shared the basic recipe for making No-Knead Everyday Bread which is baked in a bowl to produce a single, round loaf of bread. Today, we’re using that same recipe to make these French bread loaves. These loaves just use a bit of flour for dusting and can be baked on a sheet pan. Whether this is your first time...

Baking Cake Cakes CarrotCake Vegan

Appetizer Baking Breads Portuguese Recipes

These sausage, ham, and cheese loaves are a hearty, traditional Portuguese bread, that is made with presunto, chouriço, and semi-firm sheep’s milk cheese

They can also be made into rolls. From | The New Portuguese Table | Clarkson Potter, 2009 Every Saturday when I was growing up, my mother would go to the local Portuguese bakery and buy a dozen chouriço rolls—torpedo-shaped logs stuffed with sausage. By Monday, they would be gone, mostly due to me. To dress up my childhood classic, I added presunto and cheese, and sometimes sautéed onions and garlic, to the dough. And I form the rolls into round loaves because I think they look more elegant on the table.–David Leite Portuguese Sausage, Ham, and Cheese Loaves Quick Glance...
