Salmon Guacamole Sandwiches

avocado salmon sandwich 006

Happy St Patrick's Day! I'm not Irish, but I like participating in the Holiday and wearing green things and making green food. There's also a chance of Northern Lights tonight, and right now there's a geometric storm going on with a level of 4. That's the largest the level has been since 2003 and the sky is pretty clear right now. Which is the number one thing you have to look for when shooting the Northern Lights. :) If you're not familiar with figuring out how and when to shoot the Northern ...

No-Knead Crusty Artisan Bread

no knead crusty bread 035

Hey Guys. Happy Monday! Have I ever told you, that whenever I eat a piece of bread really fast I get hiccups? I have to drink a whole glass of water for the hiccups to go away. My throat gets dry and the bread gets harder to swallow. It's weird, and I almost wonder if I have some kind of gluten allergy when that happens? I also cough after eating frozen yogurt really fast too. I hope I don't have a gluten allergy, because I love myself a piece of freshly made bread with butter. The ...

Cheesy Garlic Ciabatta Bread

Today, I embark on a new journey. I have this addiction to soda, especially Coke. Coke is my favorite fizzy drink and I'd have one in the morning when I woke up right away. You know how people have coffee when they wake up? Well, I had Coke. So far it is 12:30pm and I am doing pretty darn good without having any soda. No head aches yet. I've been trying to drink more water. My dentist will probably be happy and so will my blood pressure after awhile. Last night I made this fabulous garlic ...

Caprese Crostini

caprese corstini 013

I don't know about you, but I could eat tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil on top of bread every night for dinner or lunch. AKA Caprese Costrini. Breakfast maybe, but seriously God bless those Italians for coming up with this flavor combo together. This weekend, I planted some basil and I already have tomatoes started in my garden. I can't wait for those two plants to start growing so all I need to get at the grocery store is some fresh mozzarella cheese and some bread. The bread really matters ...

Garlic Parmesan Knots

galicknots 013

I've been seeing these all over the Internet lately, so I thought I'd give them a try! Man, they did not disappoint either! Mine turned out more like huge swirl buns and not the knot. Oh well, no matter what they looked like, they were still very addicting.  I used the large canned biscuits and not the small ones. It was almost kind of fun rolling the biscuits into long ropes, I almost felt like I was going to be making some pretzles instead. They were  really addicting and I ate two of t ...

Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

redlobster 002

Copy Cat  recipes are hard to get right sometimes, and those Cheddar Bay biscuits at Red Lobster are probably the one item on their menu that everyone seems to remember. Screw the lobster! I haven't been to Red Lobster in quite a while and  I think the last thing I got there was the Shrimp Scampi. I thought these weren't garlicy enough and could have used some more garlic.  Next time I make these I think I'm going to use real garlic and cook the butter in a pan with some garlic for awhile so t ...

Cranberry Orange Bread

cranberrybread 014

I've been kind of a slacker on my blog lately, but I've been still posting recipes on my Facebook page. I made a batch of this Cranberry Orange bread last week and it was fantastic, but once the bread started cooling down the center of the bread collapsed. That has happened to me plenty of times before too. The Nutella Swirl bread did the same thing. I did some research on why bread collapses in the center after it cools, and it's because the bread didn't get cooked all the way through the ...

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

zuchhini bread

The neighbors kindly gave my husband some zucchini the other day ago. One small one and one huge one. I had made some chocolate zucchini brownies with this chocolate frosting but I was mad because the frosting never turned out. The frosting never got thick for some reason and I really wanted to post about that too. I still have part of the huge zucchini left so maybe I'll try making that again. Why is it the only recipes I ever see for zucchini are baked and they have chocolate? Those two just ...
