1  stuffed french toast! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by starspinner on: November 19, 2008 01:38:08 AM
i went to breakfast and they had stuffed french toast. it was like blueberry compote & whipped cream cheese sandwiches on french toasted bread, cut in half triangle style.

unfortunately, i had a horrid stomach ache and could barely eat half. and upon ordering, i didnt know if had cream cheese, which just really threw me off. but what a great idea, like grilled cheese with breakfast foods!

i have a &%#$-ton of homemade Italian bread. and these pears that are way overripe. so i made my own.


ginger honey pear stuffing: the pears are poached in diluted honey with some brown sugar and butter, seasoned with cinnamon and ginger

2  my non-creative rustic kitchen adventure in Recipes and Cooking Tips by starspinner on: November 18, 2008 12:18:46 AM
So, I wanted to make bread. A yeast bread. My mom asked me to make her dinner, chicken parm. Introducing the perfect excuse to bake Italian bread!

found this http://www.thefreshloaf.com/recipes/italianbread



Used 1 cup water 1 cup milk, for lack of powdered. And 5 cups certainly didn't cut it. I don't even know how much I had to add. I just kept going.

Pro's: don't have bread flour? still good to go. simple enough for a first time adventure. you end up with tons of yummy fresh baked bread! crunchy/chewy outside, nice soft dense texture inside, looks perfect for sopping up tomato sauce.

Cons: I really think there's just too many steps. The ending, I took word for word, But I'm pretty sure I should have punched down the dugh either before relaxing it or shaping it. The yield is wicked excessive. Oh, 5 cups flour? I think mine had 7 to finally take the stickiness away. Flavor is ok, not as awesome as I hoped for.

Overall, a decent rustic Italian bread. Will be perfect for your coup and sauce sopping needs. All those tiny pockets just waiting for flavorful goodness. Better than what you get in the store, simple recipe, but I'm going to keep looking for a better Italian bread.
