Classic Soft Pretzel

Hello hello! It’s me. Stephen. Long time no see, I know I know. I’m not going to lie, it was a busy summer and I feel like I’ve barely cooked in ages. Hopefully now that autumn is fast approaching, I’ll be able to spend more time in the kitchen! So… My mom has been on...
White Cheddar Bacon Bread

White Cheddar Bacon Bread

Bacon and cheese is a delicious combination sent by the gods to enslave every last one of us. When I was little, I ate SO much bacon and cheese that my sweat probably smelled like those ingredients (cue the “ew”s haha). The salty crunch paired with cool, creamy cheese was just too good to pass...

Herb Focaccia with Tomatoes

Bread makes me lose all self control…no way around it. It’s always been a vice of mine that can’t be satisfied until I gorge on a freshly baked loaf (and might I add, it’s a vice I indulge as frequently as I can!). What can I say? I just love the crisp exterior and pillowy...

Croutons

Croutons

Homemade croutons always elevate your salads to the next level. Seriously. You’ll be amazed at what crunchy little bread cubes do. You can add any herbs you love, listed below is the combo that I make all the time for my family. The only prep work is cutting bread and tossing the cubes in seasonings....
Pâte Brisée (Pastry Crust)

Pâte Brisée (Pastry Crust)

This is the standard recipe to make butter pastry crust. It’s incredibly flaky and can be used for either sweet or savory dishes (just increase the sugar for a sweet recipe). You seriously will be surprised how professional the dough comes out – just don’t over work the butter! The tiny pieces of butter you...
