Flaky Wheat Bread
インドの全粒粉さくさく層薄パン

I always lived with my parents until I left to go to college in the U.S. at age 25. One of the things we would do together as a family was going to the library every Sunday morning. Everyone in my family was an avid reader. When I moved to Minnesota, initially I didn’t have […]

Wild Rice Cranberry Seed Rosemary Crusty Rolls
ワイルドライスクランベリーシードローズマリーロール

Well, I still had some leftover cooked wild rice. So I decided to add some to crusty rolls. I also added dry cranberries, sunflower seeds, and chopped fresh rosemary. I love how they turned out. The rustic look is just irresistible. Just because I wanted to try it right out of the oven, I skipped […]

I could call it “Apple Almond Ring.” But since the apples I used had a beautiful name like “Calville Blanc,” I had to use it. Yesterday we went for a drive because it was such a beautiful day. Our destination was a local orchard called Sweetland Orchard. We got to sample various apples, and we […]

Raspberry Lemon Twist Rolls

No one can argue that presentation is important. When it comes to food, the same dish can taste better when presented in a beautiful way. And the first impression. Food that looks beautiful or unique gives me such excitement. I wanted to try making this twist roll for a while, and I finally decided to […]

German Pretzels

Seasons and seasonal events are always a good inspiration. Well, it’s October… October Fest… Germany… German Pretzels… Forming the dough into these shapes was so much fun! These turned out beautiful!! They were delicious as they were, but my husband loved dipping them into the vegan cheese sauce I made. They were so good! My […]

Olive Oil from Italy
イタリア土産、オリーブオイル

A friend of ours recently took a trip to Italy. While she was there, she visited an olive farm, where she got to sample some olive oil. She had some oil shipped home, and got us this beautifully packaged one. To enjoy the oil, so I baked some crusty bread to dip into the oil. […]
