A good bread is magical.
I had a craving for some french toast, so I adapted Alton Brown's French Toast
a bit to make a quick(ish) morning meal for one: I halved the recipe, left the
bread out in the air for about an hour, let it soak up the custard for about a
minute, and cooked on the stove over low heat for about 5 minutes. The result
was 3 pieces of dense, creamy goodness that I can't wait to try again!
Pistachio is one of my favorite flavors. When I decide to splurge on ice
cream, it's always Ben and Jerry's Pistachio Pistachio (so good). When
I need a cheap fix, it's instant pistachio pudding. But one thing I miss
from the bakery back in Wisconsin is pistachio muffins. So when
I stumbled across this recipe for Pistachio Muffins from My Momma Told
Me, I was
curious. When I found out it used pistachio pudding mix for flavor,
I had to try it.
This recipe was so good, it might break me from my recent scone habit.
It comes together quickly, same as any muffin recipe. There's almost too
much for my muffin pan, but that meant big, mushrooming muffins.
Pistachio pudding mix was 4/$2.00 last week. I think I found what I'll
use the rest for.
On the back of the Oats and Honey Soda Bread
recipe, I decided to
make a sweeter, chocolate chocolate-chip soda bread. For only my second
time making bread, it was fantastic!

There's something wonderful about bread. The process is relaxing. The
smell is soothing. The result is delicious.
I've been wanting to make some bread for quite a while. Since I had some
buttermilk from the Lemon Buttermilk Sheet
Cake, I decided to
make this oat and honey soda bread with a recipe from

Banana bread is my favorite thing to do with bananas. Growing up, we frequently
had bananas laying around. If I just waited patiently, they'd get overripe, and
we'd make banana bread. Moist, rich banana bread, warmed and buttered, makes a
wonderful quick breakfast.
So, I bought some bananas last weekend, and tried to make
muffins. It didn't turn out so well, but I
did have some bananas left over that were quickly ripening, so I decided, why
not, let's make some banana bread!
