Here’s a delicious recipe for homemade French Bread to serve with any meal. Delicious with the dipping oil.
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a small saucepan, combine milk, butter, sugar, and salt. Heat until butter starts to melt (between 110-115ºF). Add to yeast mixture with 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and allow to rise for 50-60 minutes.
Punch dough down. Turn onto lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. With rolling pin, shape each into a 10×12 rectangle. Roll up jelly roll style, pinching edges and ends to seal. Transfer to greased baking sheet, placing sealed edges down. With a sharp knife, slice 3-4 diagonal cuts in each. Allow to rise for 20-30 minutes. Bake in a 400ºF oven for 20 minutes, until crust is golden brown. Serve warm. Extra loaf may be frozen if desired.
In a small bowl, combine all the dipping spice ingredients. Store in an airtight container to use as needed.
For the dipping oil, combine olive oil, dipping spice, and balsamic vinegar in a small serving dish. Serve with warm French bread. Yum!
Chocolate zucchini bread loaded with chocolate chunks and drizzled with an orange-infused chocolate glaze.
These beauties are nutrient-dense, full of healthy fats, protein and antioxidants. And not to mention, with staying power to keep you fueled well until lunchtime. Be sure you don’t skip the cinnamon in these muffins. Not only does cinnamon have several wonderful health-related effects on the body, but it is magic when paired with blueberries.
I will admit that I adore traditional banana nut bread, but I always feel as though there is something missing. In this recipe, I added cinnamon and nutmeg to provide a warmth and depth of flavor that cannot be achieved any other way. For those of you who say, “I do not like bananas,” you should still give this recipe a try. My husband said that it reminded him of carrot cake!
