Bread Cheats You Knead to Know

Here are some short cuts to crafting some of the most traditional breads from the very same dough recipe, a bread machine-bread dough recipe to boot! How easy is that? My goal is to get people interested in the form and function of crafting bread. It is a beautiful and sadly lost art. So whether you take short cuts, or the traditional route, the feeling of crafting the bread, the smell of it baking, the sight of it’s beauty, the magnificent taste, the simplicity of its ingredients allows for a moment of taking pause before the Creator to be thankful for all that makes life truly good.  He, He Alone, for there is No Other.

Grilled Matzo Panini

More Ideas to use up our Costco Bundle of Matzo. I softened, then fused layers of Matzo to created more of a bread like texture, then grilled it to create a panini with strips of our left over Seder rib-eye roast, spinach and a dairy free tarragon cream sauce. It was so tasty. Let me know if you try it, or something similar…

Vegetarian Black Bean Nachos

A healthier twist to one of my all time favorite “junk” foods.

If you are looking for a good cheese, natural cheese, vegetarian cheese (yes, bone/tissue is often found in cheese, making most cheese not truly qualify to be called vegetarian). Here is a truly Kosher cheese. As finicky as I am about animal products, I feel good serving this. It can be easily ordered through most Fry’s, Kroger and Costco locations, so tell the manager that you WANT to purchase it weekly.

I’m using the Mexican Blend with these nachos. YUM!
