2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / My white bread. on: March 21, 2010 02:36:47 PM
I have made this bread for about 14 years and have always had a great outcome. My hands in the past 5 years have been bothering me with arthritis so I invested in a Boch to knead my dough for me now...wish I did it 5 years ago! lol

Here is the recipe that I use...

White Bread

Melt together 4 cups boling water,3/4 cup Margerine & 1/3 cup sugar

Let cool to slightlywarmer than luke warm.Add 2 beaten eggs (most of the time I omit the eggs),
3 cups flour and 1 1/2 tablespoons of instant yeast,let rise 10 min.Then add enough flour to make a soft dough.Let rise again,knead then shape into loves,buns,cinnamin buns...etc. Let rise again.Bake at 350* approx 20- 25 min. If you like a soft crust paint the top of the loaf with butter when it comes out of the oven. Makes 3 loaves. Enjoy:)

4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Soudough pizzacrust...mmmmm.....pizza! on: March 19, 2010 08:37:18 PM
I made this with a sourdough pizza crust with a mature soudough starter... I started out with tomato paste then I had pepperoni,leftover hamburger from the night before and bacon on hand so it ended up in the pizza...I added bell pepper and white onion.I used marble cheese and a little parmesan to top it off. It turned out soo good!


Combine 1 cup fresh starter, 1/2 cup warm water, 1/4 cup (olive) oil,
2 tablespoons sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt.  Stir in 2 to 3 cups flour,
or enough to form a stiff dough.  Knead until smooth.  Let rise
until doubled.  Roll out or gently shape with hands until about 14"
across and about 1/4 inch thick.  Place on a greased and floured 14"
pizza pan (or you can shape it to fit a rectangular jelly-roll
pan).  Let stand about 1 hour.  Prepare the sauce by combining one
7 or 8 oz. can tomato sauce, 1 crushed clove of garlic, 1 teaspoon
crushed dried oregano leaves, 1 teaspoon crushed dried basil
leaves, (1/4 teaspoon ground fennel).  Preheat oven to 425.  Just
before baking, spread sauce on dough, cover with desired toppings
(1/4 lb. sliced mushrooms, 1/4 lb. cooked sausage, sliced salami, etc.,
1/4 to 1/2 lb. grated mozzarella, sliced olives, sliced peppers, etc.).
Sprinkle top with grated parmesan and/or romano cheese and a few
dried parsley flakes.  Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until done.

5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Nwt No knead bread on: March 19, 2010 08:21:34 PM
I have made this bread several times,have never had a poor outcome! Here is a link to the recipe that I used  http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/08/dining/081mrex.html?ex=1320642000&en=d5976d62a4577548&ei=5088&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss

I have subsituted 1 cup of wholewheat flour in this recipe 2 see how it would turn out, it turened out very nice. I have also tried adding raisins for raisin bread,it was very good! If you are wondering how my loaves turn out so nice and round...I bake the bread in my stainless steel pot lol Here are a ton of pics for you...

This is the one I added raisins to.. This is how the batter looks in the morning...

This is the one that I subed 1 cup of wholewheat flour to...

I hope this inspires you to give it a try Smiley
