Back to the old books we go, this time for a homemade bread recipe called “water bread.” It gets its name from the fact that it’s made with — you guessed it — water. If you’re easily amused like I am, this recipe is also a great opportunity for a time-lapse video or photo set

One day, I was sitting down and having lunch at a restaurant with my Poppa, and the waitress came over to take our orders. We both ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of tomato soup. Before the waitress turned and left, Poppa asked her, “do you know what we used to call these

Back in the Christmas post, I made a brief mention of wine cakes, and I showed the recipe in my little slideshow. Well, if you looked at the recipe, you might have noticed that it was a little… well, cryptic. After a few calls to my mom and a little bit of trial and error,

We’ve covered Diwali, Hanukkah, and Christmas in our holiday food and story features. Now, it’s time to go way back to a celebration that may seem familiar in some ways, though it is often forgotten as a niche practice in the shadow of the flashier, more popular holidays. I’m talking about the Pagan celebration of the Winter Solstice

“Christmas” means something slightly different to everyone. For some, it’s a time of community traditions and religious celebration. For others, it’s a family time, where loved ones gather around their own traditions. For others still, like myself, we really don’t have much in the way of tradition, or we did at one point, but as

I love lemon baked goods at any time of year, though my biggest struggle is making baked goods “healthy” (although those guilt-free “fudge” brownies I made are probably the best example to date). I love sweets, but as I’m getting older, they’ve started sticking to me a bit and more and more of my friends

One of my friend-Skylers (the local one) mentioned the idea of banana pumpkin bread to me, and I had to say, I was intrigued. I enjoyed banana bread and I happened to have a surplus of pumpkin puree in the cupboard due to a sale at the local grocery store. 3 for 1. Great deal,

This is another recipe we found in Nana’s stash of recipe cards. According to Poppa, it came from his sister, Dorothy, who used to make it for him all the time and later passed the recipe on to Nana. I added a couple of spices to it to make the dough a little more interesting,

Rawa Dosa

Rawa Dosa

Tags: , , ,

One of my close girl friends has been teaching me about Indian cuisine, and one thing I’ve learned (other than how to say various foods) is that there are many different types of bread. Rawa dosa is the first one I’ve had the privilege of trying . While I don’t think it’s traditionally served with Tostito’s chunky
