Fry Bread with Cinnamon Honey Butter |

So, this is fry bread. Or Indian fry bread. Or, if you’re from South America, sopaipillas. Or if you’re from Utah, scones.

But regardless of the name you’re familiar with, they’re all pretty much the same— a simple dough rolled or stretched flat and deep-fried till golden. It’s soft, with a slightly crisp outer layer. And though you can serve it either sweet or savory, but it is amazing sprinkled with a little powdered sugar and smeared with honey butter.

Sweet is definitely the way to go. (Is anybody surprised?) >> More

I’ve been on a bread baking hiatus all summer, as it turns out. It wasn’t intentional, but with the exception of grilled pizza I just haven’t been in the mood.

Now it’s mid September! And chilly weather and shorter days are just around the corner, along with my cravings for soups, casseroles and hot chocolate. And I want to bake aaaaallll the bread. >> More


Step aside cinnamon rolls, there’s a new sweet roll in town. Filled with semi-sweet chocolate and finely chopped hazelnuts and topped with an espresso glaze, these sweet rolls have it all.

I wish I could give a huge bear hug to whoever deemed sweet rolls fit for breakfast. Because if we’re being completely honest, we have to admit that they’re pretty much dessert food, right?

But I’m not one to complain when it comes to getting away with eating dessert for breakfast, and so here’s one more recipe to tempt us all. >> More


Quick & Easy Pizza Crust from

It’s January! And that means I’m laying off the cookies and amping up the veggies. (Or at least I’m trying to.)

But no matter how stingy my diet, I refuse to let go of pizza night. It’s a staple in our house and I just love it too much. What really prevents us from enjoying homemade pizza regularly is that I often forget to start the dough early enough in the afternoon. Before I know it, it’s less than an hour before dinnertime and I’ve got to scramble to come up with something else. Ugh.

So when I discovered a pizza dough that lets pizza night happen in just 45 minutes from when you start to when it’s on the kitchen table? Hallelujah! Continue Reading…


Crescent Dinner Rolls |

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Are you ready? Whether you’re planning a large gathering or small, all of the preparation can be quite overwhelming. I know, I’ve been there. The best advice anyone can tell you to save your sanity is make as much of it ahead of time as possible. And probably the easiest thing to prep ahead is the rolls.

Homemade rolls are an absolute must, in my opinion. They’re right up there with the turkey and mashed potatoes with gravy. But your friends and family don’t have to know— and won’t know— that you actually started prepping them the night, week, or even month before.  Continue Reading…
