You were looking at my Turkey Burger recipe and wondering about the bun, weren’t you? No, I didn’t buy them at the supermarket — I have this thing about fresh baked bread (love love love it), so I can’t resist every opportunity to make it. Burger night is no exception.
The inspiration for making these was a restaurant that, sadly, does not make these anymore. But back in the day, they had the best turkey burger I had ever had. I guess the good thing about a restaurant not making your favorite dish anymore is that if you want it, you’re kind of forced to learn to make it on your own…
I love pizza night! Traditionally a Friday tradition, but every once in awhile, you just need that pizza-pick-me-up mid-week. And if your’e like me, you’re a sucker for fresh bread — including fresh pizza. Well, good news — I’ve got a fail-proof, stand-by pizza dough recipe easy enough to make any day of the week. Even better news? This recipe makes enough dough for one family size (14 inches in diameter) or, you can make up to 5 individual size pizzas (8 inches in diameter). So whether you’re looking to feed the whole crew, or just you and your mate, you’ve got pizza night (or nightS) covered.
Note about the Recipe: Dough can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.

The good news is that with the use of active dry yeast and the dough hook of a stand-mixer, these rolls are easy (and fun) to make! (more…)
I’m not going to lie, I don’t remember the last time I had a donut. A real donut. And I’m ok with that. I do, however, have a major sweet tooth when it comes to my breakfast meals, so I just couldn’t resist trying my hand at another baked donut recipe — with chocolate!
I love making shortbread cookies because they are so easy to make and a huge crowd pleaser. I recently made this recipe for a potluck event, but I’ve also used them as tasty gifts for birthdays and Christmas. Depending on the event or the giftee, try swapping out the filling. I’ve used the shortbread base to make mint chocolate chip, white chocolate macadamia, and butter pecan. The possibilities are endless… (more…)
