Who knew that spreading mayonnaise on the outside of your grilled cheese sandwich instead of butter is a thing? I didn’t, but saw it somewhere and tried it with plain mayo. It delivered the normal crunch we expect to go with melted cheese but I decided to try a flavor extender. I’m a fan of … More Chipotle your mayo for grilled cheese sandwich.
Making biscuits with the girls this week and taking a few photos of bees doing their work on flowers apparently woke the bee in my bonnet overnight. I’m not joking when I say that I prepared the dough while the morning coffee was brewing because I was curious. Also, I’m fond of honey butter and … More New! Peanut Butter Biscuits, My Recipe
Today the girls and I made drop biscuits, which is the proper name for the type of super fast and easy biscuits* that I routinely make, either plain, with added ingredients and/or flavor or topping. No buttermilk? No problem as milk soured with a teaspoon of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar works very well. … More In the virtual kitchen with juliyya: Drop Biscuits
Experimenting with the various no-knead breads a few times, making thick slices of the best toast ever (IMHO) brought to mind a favorite type of garlic bread. We disdain that soft and mushy store-bought, silvery-paper-wrapped bread that’s chock-full of greasy margarine with garlic salt. Some store-bought artisan breads (thinking of the roasted garlic rustic put … More Dragon Parmesan Garlic Bread, oh yeah.

A couple weeks ago I was gifted with a delicious fat slice of perfectly crusty, chewy no-knead bread made by the sisters with whom I’ve reported as being “In the kitchen with juliyya” and “In the virtual kitchen with juliyya” multiple times. Their uncle had recently taught them virtually via Skype how to make this … More Dutch Oven No-knead Stout Bread
I had to make another batch of sweet roll dough over the weekend for some walnut sticky buns so I decided to put a piece of Lindt’s dark chocolate chili bar, my favorite, in the middle of a few pieces of dough and make filled rolls. It didn’t leak! Spicy chocolate! Chocolate and bread are … More Chili Chocolate Filled Sweet Rolls
I saw the hashtag trending on Twitter and said to myself, “I’m on it” because I need a small loaf of this dough type for a requested ‘nother batch of Orange Bread Pudding* next week along with a walk this afternoon after the rolls come out of the oven. Two types today, both using the … More National Sticky Buns Day
A couple days ago I made some clementine cinnamon rolls* to share and a small loaf of the half white/half white-whole-wheat bread from the same dough to use for a pan of overnight French toast.** That was before I’d rediscovered and altered the orange goo recipe and this idea entered my baking thought-train. What if … More Orange Bread Pudding with instructions
I made an overnight-in-the-fridge yeast dough, half white and half white whole wheat, sneaking in the healthier flour for the first time with this recipe as an experiment. It worked. See that gooey goo? That was a mix of 1/2 cup fresh clementine juice, 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup salted butter cooked for … More Gooey Clementine Cinnamon Rolls
