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 <a href="/recipes/bread/rye/">rye</a>, tangy <a href="/recipes/bread/sour-dough/">sourdough</a>, pillowy <a href="/recipes/bread/rolls/">dinner rolls</a>, 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 <a href="/recipes/bread/machine/">bread machine</a> 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.

Orange-Honey Sweet Rolls

From Midwest Living

The recipe for these hearty rolls comes from Jean Hixson of the Kansas Wheat Commission. They¿ll keep in an airtight container for a couple days, or you can freeze them (unfrosted) for up to 2 months. They¿re best served warm, so when ready to eat, wrap the frozen cinnamon rolls in foil and bake about 25 minutes in a 300° oven. Frost as directed.

Apple Pumpkin Sunflower Bread

We packed a bushel of fall flavor into this homey loaf: pumpkin, apple, nuts and spices. A generous half-cup of boiled cider adds unmistakably fruity zing, but you can substitute any apple-flavor liquid. You can make boiled cider yourself using the recipe on our site, or purchase it at specialty food stores or online.

Southwestern Cheese Panini

From EatingWell

Lots of colorful vegetables and salsa make this cheesy panini prettier than any grilled cheese you've ever seen. The small amount of Cheddar cheese in this sandwich goes a long way because it is shredded and sharp. Serve with a mixed salad and you've got a delightful lunch or light supper. If you happen to have a panini maker, go ahead and skip Step 3 and grill the panini according to the manufacturer's directions.

Lemon-Raspberry Muffins

The secret to the sparkling flavor of these delicately crumbed muffins is the strips of lemon zest finely ground into the sugar. Enjoy the muffins warm right from the oven.

Fattoush

From EatingWell

Toasting the pita adds crunch to this bright-tasting salad, and a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of ground sumac-the berry of a bush that grows wild all over Lebanon-add depth. Letting the salad sit for a bit before eating allows the pita to soak up the lemony dressing.
