English Muffinish Buns

Hi, my name is Jes, and I have an addiction.  No, it’s not alcohol or drugs or food (wait, that last one might be accurate).  Ok, I’ll confess, it’s River’s “I-Don’t-Have-Time-For-a-Yeast-Dough Whole Wheat English Muffin-ish Stove Top Buns.”  I’ve made them three times in one week (yes, I eat that much bread; yes, I know […]

Step Two: Bosnian Bread

I’m really glad you all like the sausages!  I have a couple sitting in my fridge waiting to go in another seitanic potpie I’m making for my mom’s birthday (which is today, but we’re celebrating tomorrow). Now, step two of the perfect winter meal.  Bread!  My friend Melissa (who regularly stalks the blog–hey Ranger!) made […]

Carrot Bread

Let’s just roll with that orange theme for one more day.  I’ve been in a bread baking phase lately, so naturally Have Cake, Will Travel is the first site I hit when I’m ready to make a loaf.  For some reason carrot bread sounded absolutely perfect this week.  And it was.  The crumb is light […]

Let Them Eat Bread

The last time I went to the Dekalb Farmer’s Market I did something outrageous–insane even.  I didn’t buy any bread.  This wasn’t a mistake.  It wasn’t a slip-up.  I did it on purpose.  Because…well…because I have this insane idea to stop buying bread and to start baking it myself.  You have to understand something though, […]

Vegan MoFo #21–Herb Batter Bread

I’m getting a bit MoFoed out, not gonna lie.  But on the upside, it dropped below freezing last night!  In Georgia!  It is so ridiculously beautiful outside right now–crisp, clean, bright air, filtered sunlight, the leaves finally changing colors, blue sky–I can’t ask for anything better. Proof that it’s really cold in my apartment–until now, […]

Vegan MoFo #19–Pumpkin Pie Muffins

Hey look, I made it!  I’m still alive!  Sometimes I wonder why I love academia…it’s certainly not for the papers.  I promise to keep my whining to a minimum next semester when I’m pounding out chapter after chapter of my thesis.  (smile) Remember the pumpkin pie bites?  Well, because I didn’t make a regular sized […]

Vegan MoFo #14–National Feral Cat Day & World Bread Day

First off, it’s National Feral Cat Day and where would I be without my Miss Dorian Gray?  A feral momma cat in my mother’s neighborhood left two tiny mewing furballs on her front porch this past June.  The kittens fit in the palm of my hand and I fell in love with a gray, huge-pawed, […]

Crack Biscuits

Miss Dorian Gray on my couch First off, do I not have the cutest kitten ever? Ever ever? Now for the best biscuit recipe EVER. I’m going to warn you right now: don’t read this post any further unless you’re willing to make a commitment. A serious commitment. A commitment to carbs. If you’re low-carb, […]

Chocolate Chip Carrot Sunrise Muffins

Chocolate belongs in everything. That’s why mole was invented. And in baked goods, it’s even more of an “of course” type of thing. I had some carrots sitting around in my fridge that I needed to use up before they rotted and for some reason I really wanted a muffin with chocolate in it. Thus […]

New York! and Chocolate Pistachio Cream Cheese Danish Bread

Sorry for not posting in awhile. School. That’s all I have to say about that. However! I’m off to NYC for a week to visit friends, eat tasty vegan food, and pine over the fact that I couldn’t fly my bike up with me this time. Sigh. At least I’ll be hitting up the Siren […]
