I'm really enjoying this bake-a-long that Victoria, Crystal, and I are busy with! It's been a very casual, fun, and low-pressure way to try out a bunch of new bread recipes.
Like . . . last night's Vermont Cheddar Rolls:
Oh, so yum! Still warm from the oven and slathered with butter, these were just about the best thing in the whole wide world. The dough might even need more cheese next time . . . :)
Served the rolls alongside . . .
"Smoky Split Pea Soup," from the most recent issue of Vegetarian Times. Pretty quick and easy for a weeknight, given I used split peas from the co-op, (high turnover means quicker cooking times, I've found,) and dang tasty, too! I especially enjoyed the sweet potato instead of the more traditional carrot -- I love sweet potatoes, and don't love carrots! Isn't that weird?
Tonight, I wanted even faster, less-complicated fare:
Pasta and salad never fail to satisfy.
AND NOW . . . I need your help! I have been dealing with a monster mac and cheese craving for days now . . . I'm talking, instant mac-in-a-box type craving! I might try making some stovetop mac from scratch this weekend -- anyone have a good recipe they love?? Please share!
