TWD (okay, WWD) – Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins

  I love this recipe. As you can see by the photo above, I didn't make muffins.  I am just not that nuts about muffins.  And since this is really at heart a cornbread recipe (to me, anyway), I figured I'd bake it in a cast iron skillet, as cornbread should be baked. But firstContinue reading “TWD (okay, WWD) – Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins”

TWD – Black-and-White Banana Loaf

This week's recipe was chosen by Ashlee of A Year in the Kitchen and can be found on page 232 of Dorie Greenspan's lovely Baking:  From My Home to Yours.  It's funny – I wasn't even sure I was going to participate this week.  It's been so all about blueberries here that baking a loaf ofContinue reading “TWD – Black-and-White Banana Loaf”

Chocolate Zucchini Bread


Something had to be done.  We've been picking zucchini on a daily basis now, and so far we've been using everything in savory dishes…grilled zucchini, for example.  But there's only so many times a week (or a day) we want to eat it after a while, so I said I'd make zucchini bread to use up some of the excess.

TWD (make that WWD in this case) Apple Cheddar Scones

Corned Beef Project: Day 8 – Royal Hibernian Brown Loaf


This one is from Bernard Clayton's New Complete Book of Breads, but I found this sort of recipe – a brown soda bread – in just about all of the bread books I was looking through.  I didn't find the American version until I checked in with King Arthur.  And it makes sense – raisins would be more likely used for special occasion breads, holiday breads.  And I don't even know if raisins were all that common an ingredient in Ireland long ago.  I kind of doubt it.
