No Knead Bread


There's nothing like the aroma of fresh homemade bread baking in the oven. So why don't we make it more often? For a baking novice, the idea of making homemade bread may be intimidating. For those who have tried a recipe only to have the end result less than mediocre the thought of trying another recipe may not be worth the effort. Maybe your an experienced baker, but the thought of spending the morning or afternoon kneading bread seems daunting. Well, after being introduced to this NO KNEAD recipe from the NY Times (adapted from Jim Lahey, Sullivan Bakery) there's no more excuses. It's easy, the actual hands on prep work and cooking time is quick, and the recipe is foolproof.

If you like to see a lot of pictures of the whole process take a look at Jaden Hair's Steamy Kitchen blogpost which only helps to reaffirm this is a foolproof recipe as she documents her 4yr old making the bread. Jaden also includes a great tip to wet your hands before handling the dough to prevent it from sticking to you.

A quick shout out to my friend Amelia. I was immediately intrigued to try this no knead baking method after reading a recent blog post about her family's baking adventures using Jim Lahey's cookbook My Bread.

Moe's Famous Queso (Copycat Recipe)

After my dad retired from over 40 years of paper mill management, he did a short stint working at Moe's Southwest Grill before he and my mom moved down here to Maryland. After working a shift, he would often bring home Moe's famous queso and heat up their fresh tortilla chips in the microwave. I started craving Moe's queso, this unique white cheese dip packed an addicting heat that I had never had at any other Mexican restaurant. I started searching the web looking for the best copycat recipe and found the closest replica at Seeded at the Table. I think it's right on the money!

Whole Foods Cracklin' Cauliflower

Whole Foods opened up across the street from our neighborhood. Like, literally, across the street. It has been a long time coming and highly anticipated, so when they finally opened their doors, I went THREE times on the first day! The ever-changing salad bar is our bank account's downfall. Every day at noon it keeps calling my name, taunting me with quick, easy, and healthy options for lunch when I'm hangry.  

I always get a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a bigger receipt than I had hoped for. So, I decided that I would start making batches of these sides in my own kitchen so that I could enjoy them all week long without the guilt. You can purchase the Whole Foods Market Cookbook on Amazon!

First up, one of my absolute favorites, the Indian inspired Cracklin' Cauliflower! It's so good that I recommend making at least a double batch!

Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut

Bobby Flay's Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut recipe came highly recommended from my soccer friend Little Lisa. She has very good taste in EVERYTHING so I knew I had to try it after she raved one night before stepping out on the field. Easy to make and bursting with flavor, this fresh fish dish is a keeper!
