When you think of leftover Christmas breads, fruitcake seems to be the one item that is singled out. Whereas other Christmas breads like Banana Nut, Spiced Apple, Pecan Maple, Lemon Loaf and Holiday Rum and Eggnog breads leave nary a crumb, there is still life left in those leftover breads to enjoy as the season winds down. A few suggestions here will certainly alleviate any pangs of guilt when you realize you need not throw these pieces of bread away with the trash.
Bakerly non-GMO French recipe breads and pastries are delicious!
Bakerly originated when Julien and Fabian, two Bretons (from Brittany, in the North West of France) decided to combine their efforts and talents to convince American consumers that crêpes, brioches, and other traditional French products deserved a place in every American household.
I must say, I am so glad they did! If you like fresh, soft, melt in your mouth bread, you’re going to love Bakerly! We had the opportunity to sample their Strawberry filled Crepes, Brioche Rolls, Chocolate filled Crepes, and Hand Braided Brioche. Everything was delivered in a careful manner leaving nothing mashed!

Few things are more satisfying for a person who likes to cook than making homemade bread. What smells better than bread baking in the oven, or tastes better than still-warm bread slathered with sweet butter? Organic bread from a company like Klosterman Baking Company may be just the thing, but there’s a wealth of delicious ingredients that you can put in your bread just for the variety of it. Here are five of them:
Making your own bread is a delicious accomplishment. There’s nothing like fresh homemade baked bread! For those of you who are gluten intolerant like myself, there’s still hope for us. I’ve found that almond flour can make great biscuits and pancakes! Let’s not forget coconut flour – it makes the best banana bread!
I hope you’ll find these tips for baking bread useful!
- Knead your dough for 30 seconds after mixing to improve the texture of baking.
- Substitute cooking oil in waffles and hot cakes instead of shortening.
- While bread is baking, a small dish of water in the oven will help keep the crust from getting too hard.
- Dip a spoon in hot water before measuring shortening or butter.
- Be sure to preheat your cookie sheet, muffin tins, or cake pans before doing any sort of baking.
If you have read my Meatloaf recipe, you will know that I am famous for creating recipes with the items I have on hand. Especially when payday is five days out! 😉 It is almost like a game for me at this point. We have a family of 5 and live on a very tight budget. I am always scouring through the pantry to see what I can create!
Last night we had BBQ chicken and macaroni & cheese. I noticed a couple of packs of hot dog buns lying on the counter. I could tell they weren’t going to last much longer. I would probably be throwing them out since we didn’t have any hot dogs and like I said, payday is five days away.
I decided to make Garlic Bread Loaves with them. I buy garlic loaves at the store occasionally, but they can be expensive unless you have a coupon. Plus, there is usually 6 pieces in a box, which doesn’t go far with a hungry family of 5!
- Hotdog Buns
- Garlic Powder
- Heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place Hotdog buns on cookie sheet
- Spread top with butter
- Sprinkle Garlic Powder on top of each bun
- Optional* Turn oven to Broil and stay right by it! The garlic loaves will brown in a minute or two!
I was surprised that it went over as well as it did. 🙂 They ate them all!
You can pick up a store-brand of hotdog buns for around $1.25 and make 8 garlic bread loaves to top off a delicious dinner.
