On today’s edition of CDD Cooks, I’ve made my own version of pigs in a blanket using bread dough, so they’re more of a sausage roll. They’re perfect for breakfast or snack right out of the oven. In this recipe, I’ve made two different kinds of sausage rolls–the straight rolls are the original version and the twisted rolls have tomato sauce. They were so good, even Jared said he was officially impressed. Have a great weekend!
The first few big holidays are over and done with, and now we’re left waiting for New Year’s eve. I usually like to reflect on all my past goals and accomplishments and things to improve on, and now it’s time to make those resolutions for 2013. Another year has come and gone, and although we never really need a reason to start setting goals for ourselves or to improve, New Years is always a good excuse to. So what do you hope for in 2013?
This week I put the candy to the side and focused on a more ambitious project–bread. It takes so much patience to knead and wait and knead and wait, but there’s nothing like having fresh bread from the oven. How do bakers do it? I followed this recipe for challah bread from Martha Stewart, and it came out pretty well. For now, I’ll be trying out a lot more other bread recipes. Any ideas for cool things I should cook?
Christmas comes early this year! Just kidding, but if you want to impress some friends, what better way than to make them some chocolate bon bons! These are made with 70% dark chocolate, caramelized walnuts, with a piece of orange in the middle. They’re not as complicated to make as they seem, but it definitely takes some practice. Stay tuned for the entire recipe to come!
