This one is personal! I’ve been making my special wreath bread for the holidays ever since I was in high school. I love making it, I love cutting into it (as pretty as it is) and I absolutely love giving it away as a holiday gift from my kitchen. I think I cut the recipe out of a Women’s Day Magazine many, many years ago, and eventually the clipping just disintegrated from overuse. By the time that happened however, I had the recipe embedded in my cooking DNA. The inside of this gorgeous bread wreath is filled with delicious surprises like brown sugar, walnuts, soaked raisins and spices. The outside is a thing of beauty and in my opinion, the perfect holiday wreath to share! Enjoy it as a breakfast bread or a sweet snack anytime!
This is one of those recipes – you decide you’re finally going to give homemade glazed doughnuts a try. Then you sit down, pour a cup of java, purr like a kitten, and say, “Ah, now that’s a doughnut!” That was my goal when I set out to find a delicious homemade doughnut recipe. For me, it had to be the simple, classic, raised-and-glazed variety. And yes, it has to be fried to a light golden-brown and then drizzled with the old-school white glaze. Well, I’m purring like a kitten over these homemade delights. I’ll share the doughnuts with family. Just give me a bowl of homemade doughnut holes!
They have been with us for centuries – the roll-with-a-hole called a bagel. But when The Bagel Store in Brooklyn turned them into a psychedelic rainbow of twisted dough, our love affair with the bagel only got deeper and more colorful. I haven’t had this much fun in the kitchen in a long time! Hope you have as much fun as I did!
