Homemade Roasted Garlic Round Loaf

Tweet So recently I decided to start attempting to make bread and other dough-involved recipes (stromboli). It really started when my great Aunt Carm, who is 101, asked how my father-in-law’s bakery was doing.

Well I haven’t moved on from the good old […]

Rosemary Focaccia – From the Binders of M&P

Tweet Last night I started going through some cookbooks my Mommom gave me after Poppie passed away. I was going to start making breads, since that’s what Poppie used to do all the time. And recently my 101 yr old great-aunt Carm thought I was my grandmother for a couple minutes and asked about my […]
