Chocolate Gelato

This was an interesting experiment. The recipe comes from Food Network Magazine, but I don't have an ice cream maker, so I had to improvise.

Dr. Strangeloaf - Boule Attempt

Grocery prices have been on the rise as of late, so I decided I'd make bread this week rather than spend $3 on a loaf of disappointing store-bought cardboard. I was in the mood for something different, so instead of shaping the dough into my typical rectangular loaf pans I decided to make one giant boule shape instead.


Lasagna has been my all-time favorite since childhood. Meat, cheese, and layers of noodles and sauce - a balance of unprecedented flavors and textures. This one is real simple to make and yields a dish greater than the sum of its parts.

Peanut Butter Honey Bars

Just a quick post for today because I'm going to have my hands full trying a new technique for making bagels and I'm going to make a huge lasagna tonight! These peanut butter honey bars are from fellow blogger Miss in the Kitchen, who has had some excellent recipes and posts.

Tilapia Milanese

From the recent Food Network Magazine, this dish was simple to make and quite delicious. We're not big fish eaters, although recently I've tried to incorporate more fish into our diets to replace a few red meats. We have a favorite Tilapia recipe from a Real Simple magazine, so I thought I'd give this one a shot as well.

Bruschetta Desserts

I had been trying to find something fun and delicious for dessert on Valentine's evening to complement the dinner I had already planned (medium-rare steak that turned out perfect), and what better than the bruschetta we had been ooohing and aaaahing about all week in my latest copy of Food Network Magazine.


I currently have a copy of The Bread Baker's Apprentice, 15th Anniversary Edition: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread, which is an absolutely incredible book if you're interested in bread baking. As I was flipping through, bagels caught my eye.
