Popular Bread Recipes

There's something essential about bread-especially, warm, spread with butter-that most of us are powerless to resist (carb cutters, how do you do it?). The variety of bread recipes is endless: dark, nutty rye, tangy sourdough, pillowy dinner rolls, crusty baguettes - you could sample a different type of bread every day for a month and still not make a dent in the options. Don't let a bread machine do all the work. There's something comforting about baking artisan homemade bread - the smell of yeast in the air, and the act of kneading dough to the smoothness of a baby's bottom feels like exactly what it is: a ritual that's been done for thousands of years.

Chestnut Stuffing

Peeling fresh chestnuts may be a bit tedious, but the result is worth the effort. Chestnut meat adds incredible texture and richness (without much fat) to a holiday stuffing. And, after all, it is a once-a-year ritual. But if you lack the patience, jarred vacuum-packed chestnuts are a convenient alternative.
