Crunchy Cheese Bread Sticks Crunchy Cheese Bread Sticks By The Iowa Housewife 11/13/14 10:00 This is another version of our favorite crisp, crunchy bread sticks. They are a perfect snack for drop-in guests and we love these so much we substitute them for purchased crackers. I buy my cheese powder at the nearby Amish stores – it looks like the stuff...
Mom's Italian Bread Mom's Italian Bread By The Iowa Housewife 09/08/14 10:00 We wanted some bread for making pizza, so I tried this recipe from Taste of Home Baking Favorites . It’s the simplest and cheapest of doughs – 2 nice, big loaves only cost 54¢! This bread is also excellent with Italian meals or toasted, or for croutons...
Fresh Pear Bread Fresh Pear Bread By The Iowa Housewife 09/02/14 17:10 Today I made Fresh Pear Bread. I had not made any breads with pears in before, but I will certainly make this many times. The recipe is from Pillsbury’s Simply from Scratch 1986 paperback. It is moist, and light tasting. The pears were really nice at the...
Blueberry Quick Bread Blueberry Quick Bread By The Iowa Housewife 08/04/14 10:00 Sliced a little thicker as it was still warm Quick breads are a favorite of mine to bake and everyone loves to eat them. When I saw this recipe for Blueberry bread with pineapple and coconut and lemon I found one I had not tried at some point. I must confess...
Family Favorites...Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce Family Favorites...Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce By The Iowa Housewife 07/18/14 10:00 One recipe I tried from The Southern Living best comfort food recipes, 2011 , was a recipe for Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce. I bought 2 small bottles (50ml) of Bacardi Gold rum at one of our local liquor outlets. I think rum flavoring might work, but the...
Oatmeal Bread Oatmeal Bread By The Iowa Housewife 06/03/14 10:00 Here’s a nice sandwich loaf that also makes good toast. I like to make loaves this size in my Kaiser 4” x 12” pans to make smaller slices – I get 22-24 slices instead of 15 or 16 that I get in a 9” x 5” pan and the loaves bake a little more quickly because...
Hearty Raisin Bread Hearty Raisin Bread By The Iowa Housewife 05/21/14 10:00 Click on photo for a larger view If you like raisin bread, here’s one that will make you feel less guilty because it has quite a bit of whole wheat flour in it. It isn’t as sweet as some raisin breads, but it’s still delicious. I especially like it toasted;...
Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bread Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bread By The Iowa Housewife 05/20/14 10:00 This bread from the “Best of Country Breads" is surprisingly delicious – my husband really, really liked it. The recipe contributor said her husband brought the recipe home from the office so she could make it for him – after my husband’s reaction, I can...
Fresh Herb Batter Bread Fresh Herb Batter Bread By The Iowa Housewife 05/14/14 10:00 Baked and cooling Batter Breads are easy to make, and do not require kneading. However, you do need to beat them till they are forming some gluten strands. One of the tricks to baking batter breads is not to let it rise to much before putting it in the...
Sage Bread Sage Bread By The Iowa Housewife 04/30/14 10:00 This bread recipe won a blue ribbon at the huge Clay County Fair in Spencer, Iowa for Janice Nostrom of Humbolt. I can see why – it smells heavenly while baking and needs nothing more than butter to be delicious. It was great with a pasta salad, for sandwiches...
Classic Rich Bread Classic Rich Bread By The Iowa Housewife 04/16/14 10:00 I bake bread regularly, and this is an old recipe from the "Red Star Yeast Centennial Bread Sampler 1981" that I have been making probably since the book came out. It makes a nice, golden, fine-grained sandwich loaf that’s perfect for toast. It's really...
Breakfast Corn Bread Breakfast Corn Bread By The Iowa Housewife 04/07/14 10:00 I liked the “Make it your own!” ideas in the "Midwest Living Comfort Food” and here’s one of them. They used a basic corn bread recipe, giving you the option to choose any cornmeal desired; and to use 1 cup buttermilk, OR 1 cup of sour cream OR a 14 1/2...
Family Favorites...French Bread Braids Family Favorites...French Bread Braids By The Iowa Housewife 04/04/14 10:00 I’m somewhat “braid-challenged”, but the photo of these French bread loaves looked so pretty, I had to try them. The dough was easy to handle, and they are inexpensive to make – they only cost me 88¢ for both loaves! I do buy yeast in 1# bags, which cuts...
Oatmeal Honey Bread Oatmeal Honey Bread By The Iowa Housewife 03/10/14 09:00 This is a little different from my usual oatmeal bread, with the yogurt. I changed the directions to use instant or rapid-rise yeast. Luckily, I had a 7 ½” loaf pan because I use it for my husband’s favorite lemon nut quick bread. This is a nice sandwich-style...
Dilly Casserole Bread Dilly Casserole Bread By The Iowa Housewife 02/06/14 10:00 Better slices when cool, tastes so good warm The recipe in the Pillsbury The Best of The Classic Cookbooks for Dilly Bread tempted me to try a loaf. I am not a bread baker but this is a batter type bread and done in a casserole. The recipe was a winner...
Carrot Onion Dill Bread Carrot Onion Dill Bread By The Iowa Housewife 02/05/14 10:00 When Myrna saw this recipe on my blog work list, she didn’t think it sounded very good – I don’t think she was visualizing yeast bread. We liked this tasty, pretty, savory bread – for sandwiches or as toast. My husband thinks I need to add this to my yeast...
 Tropical  Fruit Bread "Tropical" Fruit Bread By The Iowa Housewife 01/27/14 10:00 Myrna and I rarely use Bisquick, but we found a couple of nice cookbooks from them, and bought some mix to share and to try the recipes this week. This is a delicious quick bread with a nice texture– it really should be called “tropical” fruit bread, with...
English Muffin Bread English Muffin Bread By The Iowa Housewife 12/31/13 10:00 I've looked at recipes for English muffin bread for years and never tried them…I don’t know why, because one of the only bread products I ever buy ready-made is English muffins. I don’t believe I will need to buy them anymore. This bread is great toasted,...
Apricot, Pecan & White Chocolate Bread Apricot, Pecan & White Chocolate Bread By The Iowa Housewife 12/19/13 10:00 The second recipe I chose from the Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Baking was for another quick bread. This one has apricots, pecans and white chocolate all of which I had on hand. As it is cold and we have slippery roads having everything on hand helped...
Cherry - Golden Raisin Bread Cherry - Golden Raisin Bread By The Iowa Housewife 12/17/13 10:00 I baked a quick bread recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Baking 2009 today. The bread is excellent. Great flavor and of course as with any quick bread ease of preparation. Now I have to tell you that for the first time in quite awhile it...
