Blueberries are in season! They are huge – the size of cherries! – and sweet like dates. Had I not known that they were organic, I would’ve thought they were on steroids or something. As much as I love just popping them in my mouth all day long, one could only consume so much, and they are highly perishable. I had to do something about it, and quick! I recalled an old recipe I had for whole wheat raisin bread, so I dug it up and started playing with it.

We do not cook on Shabbos. Food must be ready before sundown on Friday, and nothing could be cooked or even reheated until after sundown on Saturday. Yet the tradition demands hot food to be served both on Friday night and on Saturday afternoon. Friday night is relatively easy as you finish cooking or heating things up right before lighting Shabbos candles, and hot dinner is ready to be served. But how do you keep it hot for Saturday afternoon?
Homemade Focaccia Bread courtesy of The Urben Life
Whew! This focaccia bread was actually way more time consuming than I thought it would be, a couple hours to be somewhat exact. BUT it’s so yummy, so WORTH IT! trh-focaccia-bread
Kaas Uienbrood (Cheese Onion Bread) courtesy of ANN GRUBBSNCRITTERS
There! My first homage to a Dutch dish apart from the Bitterballen. Anyone can make this and if you’ve never tried making bread before, this recipe will make you feel like the Goddess of Brood (Bread)
Banana Bread Perfection courtesy of ANN GRUBBSNCRITTERS
My quest for that perfect banana bread recipe has come to an end after the fourth time mucking around with methods and ingredients as well as mixing and matching the different recipes I found from several sources.trh-banana-bread-perfection
Artisan Bread courtesy of All that’s Jas
I’ve been dreaming of owning a Dutch oven (cast iron pot) just so I could make this bread but that didn’t justify the price of it in my head. I can bake perfectly good bread without the Dutch oven, thank you very much. So, when my daughter surprised me with it for Christmas I was overjoyed. We will ignore the fact that it took whole three months before I actually baked the bread and instead focus on the recipe.

Challah courtesy of cookingforthetimechallenged
This is our favorite challah recipe. I make it every week. It works in the bread machine or in the food processor.
Depending on the time of year, I often make the dough in the bread machine. I put the ingredients in the bread machine before I go to work Friday morning. Then, I set the timer so that the dough will be done when I get home from work.
The first thing I do when I walk in the door is braid the dough. I let the loaves rise and bake them just before Shabbat. It is so great to have fresh baked challah for Shabbat!

February – the stores are decked out in red and pink hearts, furiously marketing in the name of love. Jewelers and bridal salons are having their best time of the year, measuring love in carats and yards of lace.
Vegan banana bread courtesy of thehappiestpixel
Hey pixels!! This happy recipe is an adaptation of this one, found at the wonderful blog of my friend Daisy Ashcroft, who made a vegan banana bread. I’ve never made a banana bread before, but I really wanted to make one. So here it is!!trh-vegan-banana-bread
Nutmeg Cinnamon Popovers  courtesy of snapshotsincursive
These bakery-style popovers come with a warning label: Highly Addictive! Perhaps I might include a disclaimer. If you never suffer with sweet tooth cravings or for some unknown reason dislike cinnamon, no worries. For the rest of us, all I can say is “Try to resist licking your fingers!”.

Bread Onion Scramble courtesy of PriyaPandian
Making a snack at home makes us feel happy as well as give us a satisfaction that they are home made. This Indian style scramble is one such type that can be made in a jiffy with few ingredients. This is a tea-time snack that can be made with left over bread of any flavour and variety.
Fabulous Fruit Bread courtesy of Cook Yourself Happier
This really does look good enough to eat even though I say it myself!  And of course you are getting some fresh berries which are wonderful for you.  The more berries the better.  I love nuts so I’ve used walnut pieces but I sometimes use toasted hazelnuts or almonds. The base bread is fruit loaf and once you have made it pop it in the freezer and enjoy whenever you feel peckish.  Toasted with butter I love it for breakfast and afternoon tea.  It also makes a really decadent pudding if you add some vanilla ice cream and maple syrup.

    Hi dear friends,
    Here are the awesome collection of bread recipes from February 2017 Share and Inspire Others! BREAD – SWEET AND SAVORY. I thank Esme of The Recipe Hunter for providing me this opportunity to share and inspire others. Hope you all will be eager to participate in  the upcoming events.

    There are several similar games already circulating around old US of A. And somehow they found me and started inviting me to play by their rules. I like to be challenged. The first game I got invited to is Share and Inspire Others. Although I didn’t have time to make something new for their February theme – BREAD Sweet and Savory, I also realized that I don’t have enough bread recipes on my blog. So, I submitted the only good one I have, my Artisan Bread.
    Why play?
    These cooking games are inspiring, challenging, keeping you accountable, and expanding your horizons. Most importantly they are fun!
    Want to join in on the fun? It’s free!
    You can visit Recipe Challenge February host Ann to find out what ingredient she wants us to use. I was happy to participate in February challenge over at Cook and Enjoy Recipes. Here is how it goes:
