Heather says: I had pretty much written off Fearless Friday for this week. Since I’m out of town, without a real pantry, that’s about all the cooking adventure I was willing to handle while working under the pressure of a big deadline. Then last night, I saw a tweet from Candice of Ragamuffin Design. She…

Pizza Crust Recipe

By Heather Solos | May 19, 2008

Heather says:       I was not content with the pizza crust I originally posted, it was good, but not something I felt others would rave about.  Consequently I have been experimenting with variations for the past few months.  While searching for a simple crust I had some criteria in mind: the ingredients must…

Popovers in a Muffin Tin

By Michele Newell | June 26, 2013

Michele says: Have you ever had a popover?  If you haven’t, you’re missing out on one of my all-time favorite sides for a Sunday roast.  Crispy and crunchy outside with an airy inside, popovers are the perfect utensil for transporting gravy from plate to mouth.  Like Yorkshire puddings without the pan drippings, popovers are simple…

Bread Machine Tips

By Heather Solos | February 29, 2008

Dear Home Ec 101, So I’ve finally garnered the courage to break out the 10 year old, given as a wedding gift, but never used Bread Machine. I’ve used it twice to make whole wheat bread. I’m not doing a good job at this. I’ve learned that the ingredients MUST be room temp (not straight…

Heather says: see the end for a note   Michele says: Now that September is nigh, relief from the insanity of summer is in sight.  Kids go back to school, vacations cease, and life gets back to normal until the seemingly just around the corner winter holiday season.  Assuming you’re not Jewish, that is.  And…

Bread Making and the Stand Mixer

By Heather Solos | February 1, 2008

Heather says: Using a stand mixer can be a great way to knead dough a little faster and without as much physical effort. Personally, I enjoy a chance to work off a little steam. (I have three kids under five, I’m human, there is steam.) When using a stand mixer like a kitchen-aid begin timing…

Easy Italian Bread

By Michele Newell | April 4, 2013

Michele says: A little over ten years ago today, I enrolled in home economics as a school elective.  To say I was excited would be an understatement, and I showed up for my first day of class eager to learn anything and everything I could about sewing, cooking, cleaning, and—most important to me—baking.  The pace…
