Bread in a Bag

Bread in A Bag Collage 2

Garlic Cheesy Bread & Giveaway

Garlic Cheesy Bread

We have a favorite little local pasta place near us that we love to go to and we frequent it for date night often. Everything they make is delicious but my favorite thing on their menu is their Garlic Cheesy Bread. The best part is, since Jim has gone gluten free and dairy free, I no longer have to share it with him. I get the whole thing to myself. I decided that I needed to figure out how to make it at home so when Panasonic sent me this [Continue Reading…]

Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread

Today’s recipe is the perfect meal accompaniment for your Slow Cooker Corned Beef for your St. Patrick’s Day feast! Soda Bread is a quick bread that is made with baking soda as it’s leavening agent instead of yeast.   It is also traditionally made with buttermilk.  The buttermilk causes a chemical reaction with the baking soda to cause little  bubbles to of carbon dioxide to form. Soda Bread is often made with raisins or nuts but I am kind of a plain jane some time so I left mine plain or [Continue Reading…]

The Best Gluten Free Banana Bread

Gluten Free Banana Bread

One thing you requested to see more of  in 2014 when I asked was gluten free recipes.  So when my gluten free daughter Cali was home for Christmas break I did a little playing around with some our family’s favorite recipes and making a gluten free version.  Last year I shared with you the gluten free flour mix we love to use and it was one of my Top Posts for 2013.   It’s been pinned about 70,000 times! Like I always say when I post a gluten free recipe, don’t [Continue Reading…]

Orange Blueberry Bread

  We planted blueberry bushes in our backyard for the first time last year so this summer is the first time I have been able to step out into my backyard and pick blueberries! So fun! The birds got most of one bush but we still have another bush full. I love going out first thing in the morning and picking a handful to add to a bowl of cereal or yogurt or throw into a green smoothie. I was in the mood for a little sweet bread the other [Continue Reading…]

Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

gluten free cinnamon rolls

While Cali was home visiting it was our church’s semi annual General Conference.  That basically means we get to stay home in our jammies and watch church on TV!  Our family has a tradition of having homemade cinnamon rolls that weekend.  Since cinnamon rolls aren’t normally gluten free I was determined to make some for Cali that were yummy and that Jim and I could enjoy too.  I have experimented with a few cinnamon roll recipes over the last couple of years but usually just end up buying her Udi’s [Continue Reading…]
