Hot Cross Buns

Happy Easter everyone!  It’s such a beautiful Sunday morning and we had this scrumptious hot cross buns for breakfast today.  I know that traditionally these buns are served on Good Friday, but clearly I didn’t plan for Easter week–hung my head shamefully  This year’s Easter is such an easy going day for my family, in […]

Parker House Rolls

Have to try this rolls whenever I see the recipe for Parker House rolls.  I’m imagining soft and fluffy rolls, warm and buttery.  And I’m not disappointed with this recipe.  It’s a bit time-consuming forming this small pillows but of course, any shape will do.  The addition of sea salt at the end is necessary […]

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

This cinnamon swirl bread is one of many sweet breads I’ve discovered that’s big on flavor yet very easy to make with the aid of a bread machine.  I purposely keep a bread machine just to make bread dough or pizza dough because it never fails to produce any kinds of dough I need.  And […]
