Deli Style Rolls

These deli style rolls are the perfect sandwich roll – they have a substantial crust yet are light and airy on the inside. Just like you would find at a deli!

It is no secret that I love baking bread. I usually try out a different loaf every weekend that we are in town. But for some reason, I never make rolls. I’m not sure why – they aren’t harder to make than normal bread. I just never think about it. But some sandwiches just call out for a roll. Like pulled pork – definitely need a roll for that! Or an egg sandwich – it just isn’t the same on toast. So I decided that we needed some deli style rolls in our life!…

It is no secret that I’m putting pumpkin in everything these days.  I talked about it earlier this week when I made pumpkin coffee cake.  It is also no secret that I love to bake bread!  Just look at all of these recipes. It is really one of my favorite things to do on a lazy Sunday. There is nothing better than the smell of freshly baked bread in your house.  TheBetterHalf is pretty spoiled – I can’t remember the last time we had store bought bread!…

Bacon Bread

The title of this entry says it all for this one:  Bacon.Bread. Delicious, fluffy bread with tons of bacon baked inside.  Does it get any better?  I really don’t think so.  I’m pretty sure TheBetterHalf would be happy if this was the only bread I ever baked going forward.  I mean what is not to love about three quarters of a pound of bacon being added to your bread dough?  And imagine the sandwich possibilities with this loaf.  A turkey sandwich…on bacon bread.  A grilled cheese with tomato…on bacon bread.  A BLT!….on bacon bread. What doesn’t sound better when you put it on bacon bread?  I think even a PB&J would be phenomenal on this bread. I may or may not have tried that….TheBetterHalf was grossed out, but I thought it was amazing! The sweet and salty combo, mmmm….

White Sandwich Bread

spread it on

As you might have noticed, I love baking bread.   Since I started baking it in January of 2012, I don’t think we’ve bought any bread – I won’t allow it!  Homemade bread is just so much better!  And we usually have a lot leftover from the loaves I bake, so I just slice it up and pop it in the freezer.  You can put a frozen slice in your toaster and you have delicious toast ready in a few minutes! …

Philly Cheesesteaks

Serve on french baguette

Hailing from the great city of Philadelphia, I consider myself somewhat of a cheesesteak aficionado.  Pat’s, Geno’s, Jim’s, Tony Luke’s, John’s, Rick’s (creative names, I know) – I’ve had them all.  But on those occasions when you can’t make it over to the corner of 9th and Passyunk for a wiz-wit, you can still make a delicious cheesesteak right on your stove top.  …
