Chef John's Sourdough Bread

Rating: Unrated
Making your own sourdough bread does take a while, but the amount of actual work is minimal--and the bread you'll get is spectacular! See the footnote link to how to make the sourdough starter.

Strawberry Bread

Rating: Unrated
This is wonderful hot or cold, for breakfast or as a dessert. A definite family favorite!

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Rating: Unrated
Good with soups, chili. Makes excellent toast. Flavor of bread will change, depending on type of beer used. Loaf comes out looking textured on top.

Garlic Naan

Rating: Unrated
Though restaurant naan is usually cooked in the intense heat of the tandoor oven, you can pull off this homemade version using a hot cast iron skillet. When cooked at the proper temperature, the naan will develop blistered bubbles with a lovely golden-black char. Reward yourself for a job well done by sopping it in copious amounts of curry.

Brown Butter Pineapple Corn Muffins

Rating: Unrated
When you're talking about cornbread, you're also talking about a big bowl of chili, and nothing balances that big spoon in one hand like a warm corn muffin in the other.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Rating: Unrated
This recipe can be used to make either hamburger buns or hot dog buns. My husband says they are 'top of the line.' Nice and soft.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Rating: Unrated
Traditional flour tortillas - homemade and much better than store bought. Do not substitute vegetable oil or shortening for the lard.

Banana Banana Bread

Rating: Unrated
Why compromise the banana flavor? This banana bread is moist and delicious with loads of banana flavor! Friends and family love my recipe and say it's by far the best! It's wonderful toasted!! Enjoy!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Rating: Unrated
Really, really good and moist- my kids eat it as quickly as I can make it. Bread will freeze well, and keep in refrigerator for weeks.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Rating: Unrated
These muffins are extra large and yummy with the sugary-cinnamon crumb topping. I usually double the recipe and fill the muffin cups just to the top edge for a wonderful extra-generously-sized deli style muffin. Add extra blueberries too, if you want!

Two-Ingredient Naan

Rating: Unrated
While not a true naan bread, this sure works in a pinch!

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Rating: Unrated
This is a super quick batter bread that is wonderfully moist and yummy!
