In a new feature I’d like to call “Mark Hasn’t Made This One Yet,” allow me to introduce The Crazy Food Lady, a.k.a S.N.Arly. She just posted a Youtube video…
Caffè Latte Bread
Ground coffee, cocoa, milk, and a spoon full of sugar. It’s a visit to the coffee shop – but in loaf form.
Spinach Dip Bread
Was looking to make an herb bread – when a little package of Spinach Dip & Seasoning caught my eye. Turns out, it makes a great loaf. Yay, impulse decisions!
Green Onion Cheese Bread
Sauteed green onions, cheese (I used Gruyère, dill Havarti, and Gouda… cleaning out the cheese drawer), sweetened with a wee bit of applesauce.
Fruity Potpourri Bread
The wonderful smell of potpourri in a bread… cran-raspberry juice, apple, orange peel, coriander, ginger. Not a sweet bread like cinnamon rolls, but sweet like a kiss on the cheek.
Sumac Currant Bread
Pinkish purple crumb with a fresh, almost fruity, flavor.
Mark & Mom’s Panettone Recipes
“This recipe was given to me in Dallas by a 90-year old lady in our church. It had been used in her family for many years.” — Betsy Oppenneer
Birnenbrot-style Apple Raisin Rum Bread
First time making Birnenbrot. And I didn’t have Birne (pear), so I made Apfelbrot instead. The filling is apple, raisins, cranberries, walnuts, fresh orange juice, lemon zest… and rum. Can’t forget the rum.
Mom made this Stollen every Christmas and the thought of it brings back a torrent of wonderful memories. It looks like it may be heavy or hard, but actually it is light and sweet with chewy bits and icing drizzle and all sorts of magical goodness.
Broadmoor Baker’s Bread
Many moons ago, my Mom had a website (www.thebreadworks.com). Each month, she added a new recipe to the “Recipe of the Month” section. This recipe is the selection from January 2002 which is pretty much pre-Cambrian in terms of internet history.
