by Nina on December 31, 2013

I’m excited to introduce a new contributor to the Make and Takes team… Nina of Ambrosia. Please welcome Nina, sharing all sorts of fun recipes for us to enjoy. Take it away, Nina: We’re officially in the holiday season home stretch…just one more major holiday to go! Some may see this as a good thing, and others […]

You can’t have the holidays without a few baked treats in the mix. We’re making fun and festive Crescent Roll Christmas Trees for a delicious dessert. These are a perfect treat to make as you decorate your Christmas tree or after you head out with the family on an ice skating adventure! We’ve also created […]

With the end of the harvest season near, I’ve been trying to snatch up the last of the produce from the farmer’s market before the frost sets in. Last weekend, with a chance of snow in the forecast, I gathered up as many tomatoes and zucchini as I could fit in my basket and brought […]

Banana bread is a comfort food. Sweet, dense, and full of bright flavor, the bread has a way of cheering people up and turning a bad day around. The scent of the baking bread infusing a home calms tempers and eases woes. Problems are solved over the kitchen table, one buttered slice at a time. […]

Did you know you can make your own sourdough starter? I guess I always thought it had to be inherited from like 150 year old starts or something crazy like that. Turns out that’s totally not true! Thanks to this sourdough starter guide and tutorial from Food Fanatic I found at the Make and Takes […]

I’ve heard tell of homemade pretzels before and now proof, it can be done! When I spotted this homemade pretzel recipe from Amanda’s Cookin’ at the Make and Take’s Spotlight, I knew it was a sign. I’m off to fire up my oven! Can’t live without your carbs? Check out these links below: Open face […]

Sign me up for anything with pumpkin baked into it, especially if there’s maple syrup involved. My kids were going crazy over these biscuits. I’ve seen similar recipes, but I decided to use my favorite buttermilk biscuit recipe and tweak it a little. A little less milk and a good dose of pumpkin puree, a […]

It may be fall, but we are still enjoying summer tomatoes and basil. Our basil plants are on fire. I can’t keep up! I made a big batch of pesto and have been putting it on everything, including this Open Face Caprese Pesto Sandwich. If you are a fan of the classic caprese sandwich, you […]

Mango Chocolate Chip Bread

by Two Peas on January 25, 2012

Mangoes were on sale and I went a little crazy. I have a hard time passing up a good deal. I used the mangoes to make my usual smoothies and salads, but I still had ripe mangoes to use. I decided to mix things up and make Mango Chocolate Chip Bread. You might think the mango/chocolate combination […]

And I’m not even kidding! Easiest. Recipe. Ever! Thanks to my sweet brother, Ramon, who recently came for a visit, I’ve finally learned to make this delicious recipe for homemade Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François. If you’ve been intimidated to make homemade bread, your store bought days are over. I […]

Easy Garlic Bread Knots

by Two Peas on March 23, 2011

I love homemade rolls, but sometimes I don’t have time to make them from scratch. When I am running short on time, but still want the taste of homemade rolls, I turn to Rhodes frozen rolls. They are easy to make and taste amazing. I recently used frozen Rhodes rolls to make Easy Garlic Knots. […]

At first thought, I might never have put this dessert together. But when I needed a sweet treat and all I had was a can of crescent roll dough and m&m’s, it just came together. And I have to say, they’ve made a perfect combination, topped with a drizzle of frosting. Yum. Recipe for M&M […]

This year we’re heading up to our Aunt and Uncle’s for Thanksgiving. I wanted to give them something fun for hosting us, so we’ve personalized a bread basket liner for Thanksgiving. These cute little turkey hands come from my 3 kids, something for our hosts to remember us by. Supplies for Thanksgiving Bread Basket Liner: […]

I’m trying to eat a little healthier these days, but when you see something like this pop up from the screen, you have no choice but to give in, just for one day. Roasted Banana Cinnamon Rolls from the Picky Palate. But there are bananas in them, that makes it better, right?!

If I let my husband decide on the dinner menu every night, he would choose pizza. He could eat pizza for every meal and never get sick of it. I like pizza, but not that much. We usually make pizza once a week. We try to mix things up with new crusts, toppings, and sauces. […]

I love Valentine’s Day. Can you tell? There’s so many fun crafts, treats, and activities to be had. Here’s a fun after-school snack we made with our toast. Supplies for Heart Shaped Toast: one slice of bread butter heart shaped cookie cutter topping: sugar, cinnamon, or jam Toast your bread and butter it. Place on […]

Did you know you can paint bread and then toast it into a colorful, edible piece of art? Yep, it’s true. I learned it here. Combine bread cut out with cookie cutters with a bit of edible paint, and art time collides with snack time in a really fun way. Kids of all ages will […]

Sorry, this post is another deep fried recipe (I know, it’s not helping my love handles either!) It’s also another yummy breakfast meal we like to eat for dinner! Fried Scones were one of my favorite meals growing up as a kid. My mom would make bread and save some of the extra dough to […]

by Marie on June 11, 2008

Thanks again to my baking friends Becca and Jenn, I have been enjoying another one of their great recipes. French Peasant Bread, but with a twist, I add Rosemary. It makes it taste just like the hot steamy delicious Macaroni Grill Bread. It’s super easy to make, even using yeast, and perfect to dip into […]
