True story. (Refer headline to this post). Vegetarian Lasagna has been on my to-cook list for so long. I finally got down to making this last year. To my surprise, I nailed the recipe in the first time. I tried it again last week and decided to share the recipe with all of you!

A cross between Pasta and a Casserole dish, Lasagna combines best of both worlds. It is time consuming and requires good planning for all the different layers. But if you plan well, it is a breeze to put together! You don’t need to be intimidated by this recipe at all!    (more…)

I have lost count on the number of times I’ve had pizza. Every time a craving strikes, I either hit up Domino’s for one of their delicious pizzas, or I persevere and make my own pizza. Either ways, pizzas are soul food and one of my favorite things to eat / bake.

Consider this recipe for Roasted Veggie Pizza as a broad guideline to making your own version of this pizza. My only advice is – make the perfect dough and use fresh, seasonal vegetables. Fresh veggies make a world of a difference to the end dish.

As long as we are talking about bread baking, you must know that it does not get any easier than these soft petit pains au lait rolls.

These french milk bread rolls are pleasantly soft and spongy and an absolute delight to devour. Traditionally studded with pearl sugar, these rolls are meant to be had at breakfast or with chilled milk. However, if your taste buds call for something spicy, you can easy swap out the sugar for your favorite choice of herbs and spices, while retaining the dough and the process of shaping the rolls. The typical “tooth mark” on these rolls give them a differently gorgeous look.

Although you can rely on all purpose flour to give you a spongy texture that we all love, it is recommended that you try to get your hands on some strong bread flour. And if you want an alternative, vital wheat gluten can help with the gluten content in the dough, thus making it elastic and spongy. Then again – if you are just starting out – don’t even bother. I used neither bread flour nor VWG, and I still found these rolls to be great.   (more…)
