My husband loves the pizza I normally make, though it is usually a thinner crust in favor of our waist lines. He found this recipe and asked if I would be able to make it sometime and I was ready to tackle the challenge! I still haven’t had a chance to remake it, but just having this up makes me want to make it again. It was incredibly tasty pan pizza and the original recipe has many tips you may want to check out.

croissants take 1

A slight disclaimer: I did make these croissants, but they weren’t as successful as I would like, so I’ve delayed posting this for a couple months now. It’s been too hot to retry them, so I might as well post and then show new pictures when I can try again. I might be me since it was my first time making them, but they weren’t light and the ends splayed out in each layer instead of staying together. I scanned through several recipes after making these and the only difference was many of the other recipes let them rise for upwards of two hours before making them and then putting them briefly back in the fridge for the butter to cool. I think I might try that another time. All the rest of the steps seemed pretty common though and I’ll post my (almost) step by step pictures. Regardless, they were quite tasty, just not quite a croissant.

No-Knead Bread

I know, I know, everyone has the recipe up for no-knead bread, but I had to put it up for myself so I could stop having to search my bookmarks for it every time I wanted to make it. It’s not the favorite bread that I make, but it is one of the easiest and can have a great flavor, so I still make it pretty often. I use the recipe straight from the original NY Times article.
