Easy Sour Cream Biscuits

Easy Sour Cream Biscuits by Salad Foodie

Quick to the table because there's no cutting of shortening into flour mixture. Just stir in sour cream, knead lightly, pat out, cut and bake. Couldn't be simpler to get homemade biscuits on the table. I like to use up the tail end of the sour cream this way.

Buttermilk and Butter Biscuits - with Attitude!

Buttermilk and Butter Biscuits - with Attitude! by Salad Foodie

Playing with a biscuit recipe one day I pondered…..what if I subbed butter for the shortening and added some kick-up seasonings? The result got great reviews from guests…. and hours later and at room temp, the “attitude” was delightfully more pronounced.....mm-m! Buttermilk makes them tender and light, while the butter…..oh the…

Blue Cornmeal Cornbread

Blue Cornmeal Cornbread by Salad Foodie

Blue cornmeal imparts a blue-violet cast to the bread, a coarser consistency and a sweeter, nuttier taste than yellow or white cornmeal. It is 20% higher in protein and has a lower glycemic index, good news for those with elevated blood sugar. However it can be difficult to find! Arrowhead and Bob's Red Mill make it and some health…

Baking Powder Biscuits

Baking Powder Biscuits by myra byanka

This classic recipe makes about 8 biscuits (2 1/2 inch diameter). I like to brush melted butter on the tops after the biscuits come out of the oven. If you have leftovers, do not refrigerate. Just wrap them in plastic, and heat the next day in the oven, which is the best way to re-heat all bread products.

Testing Yeast for Freshness + A Source for Bread-Making Troubleshooting

Testing Yeast for Freshness + A Source for Bread-Making Troubleshooting by Salad Foodie

When yeast dough bread-making has poor outcomes, it can be frustrating to figure out what went wrong. Heavy coarse grain, collapsing loaf, dense, gummy chew - these are just a few of the problems encountered. Was it the yeast, flour, measurements or…

Mashed Potato Rolls

Mashed Potato Rolls by myra byanka

Accidentally deleted this recipe, so here it is again. It's my favorite, go-to general purpose recipe for dinner and sandwich rolls, because they last longer than a day, due to the potatoes in them. Add fresh herbs and garlic for Italian and comfort foods, or substitute mashed sweet potatoes for the russets. Keep the dough in…

Yeast Rolls

Yeast Rolls by myra byanka

Great recipe from the 40s. No kneading required. By far, the best recipe I've ever baked in my search for wonderful dinner rolls. Recently, a friend made this dough and put it in her oven to proof with the light on, but it was too hot. When we got it out and looked at it, it was bubbling. So, I tried to save it by putting it in a…

New Best Flour Tortillas

New Best Flour Tortillas by myra byanka

Heretofore, I have only used lard to make tamales; however, I experimented with using it for tortillas. They came out flavorful, fluffy, and soft. Best ones ever! Dough or cooked ones will freeze. Re-heat on a griddle or skillet for maximum softness. The microwave will toughen them.

No Knead Multigrain Bread

No Knead Multigrain Bread by myra byanka

This dough is wet and won't keep its shape, so I bake it in a Dutch oven. If you don't have one, put the dough in a prepared 9x5 loaf pan.

Favorite Oatmeal Muffins

Favorite Oatmeal Muffins by Salad Foodie

No, not just my favorite oatmeal muffin, these are actually my Number 1 Favorite Muffin ~ period! I love that they are comparatively low-fat and won’t make your fingers greasy as you eat them. I love the crunch of oatmeal, the sweetness of raisins and cinnamon, and the spongy texture buttermilk imparts to baked products. I love…

Old-fashioned Icebox Rolls by myra byanka

Make the dough and keep it in the reefer for up to a week. Bake rolls when you want fresh ones. I usually let the dough stay in the fridge a few days for extra good flavor.
