Classic Irish Soda Bread

For many people living in the United States, when they hear the words Irish soda bread many think of a sweet bread dotted with raisins and caraway seeds. While the American-Style Soda Bread is delicious, it is not the traditional Irish soda bread. The traditional bread only includes four ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt, and buttermilk. The “soda” in the name comes from the use of baking soda to leaven the bread instead…

Individual Yorkshire Puddings

Yorkshire pudding is an essential and easy dish to serve alongside your Sunday roasts. I made these Yorkshire puddings the first time about a month ago for Christmas dinner and they were a huge hit. Unfortunately my family devoured every last bit of the roast, preventing me from sharing the recipe with you. But don’t worry, the roast was absolutely incredible and I will be making it again soon!

Orange-Spice Banana Bread

If you’re like me, you always have overripe bananas sitting on your counter top. I have good intentions to eat all the bananas, but there is always at least one or two that get brown spots before I can eat them. I usually make my favorite banana bread, the Ultimate Banana Bread, but I didn’t have quite enough ripe bananas to make a loaf this time. So I went searching for…

This holiday bread has just the perfect amount of spice.…

Jalapeño Corn Bread

This Jalapeño Corn Bread speckled with chopped jalapeños and cheese is a great accompaniment for chili, soup and meat dishes. Like it hot? Add another jalapeño and leave the seeds and membranes in the jalapeños. It seems that some dishes just beg for a large slice of corn bread.
