Wheat Germ & Herb Biscuits and a Super Food Giveaway!

Wheat Germ and Herb Biscuits

Recently, I was offered a free jar of Kretschmer Wheat Germ to try and also a jar to giveaway on my blog, which is really great but honestly, I already knew about the awesomeness of wheat germ. I’ve been a fan for awhile and use it all the time for coating chicken, adding to granola and cereals and even baking. Did you know that you could do all of that with wheat germ? Well, you can.

And also, wheat germ is a super food. It’s an excellent source of nutrients including . . . → Read More: Wheat Germ & Herb Biscuits and a Super Food Giveaway!

Lemon Chia Seed Zucchini Bread

Lemon Chia Seed Zucchini Bread

Generally speaking, I am not a huge fan of chia seeds. They get kind of slimy and what-not and I just do not find that texture enjoyable. So, I have been at a bit of a loss of what to do with my huge bag of Chia Seeds. And I do want to use them, because they are SO good for you.

And then I came across this recipe and it’s perfect because it’s baked and thus, the slime factor is relatively low. In fact, the chia here basically take . . . → Read More: Lemon Chia Seed Zucchini Bread

Cream Cheese and Red Onion Bialys

Cream Cheese & Onion Bialy

This recipe is one inspired by our recent trip to the coast, where each morning we got a delightful cream cheese and onion bialy at Pacific Way Cafe Bakery. I made these the following weekend and I think they turned out very well — chewy, cheesy, onion-y. Ohmygod-y.

Mine had (maybe…maybe) too many onions on them (but, I like to over-fill things!), but that was the only issue. I divided my filling up between my bialys instead of measuring it. The wrong choice? Perhaps, but all things being equal, I might . . . → Read More: Cream Cheese and Red Onion Bialys

FFwD: Provencal Olive Fougasse

Provencal Olive Fougasse

Oh my, this was so good! I think this is my favorite French Fridays with Dorie so far…and that’s saying a lot, because I’ve really liked pretty much everything (except the sardines, which this totally makes up for).

This is also bread that I thought, looks much more complicated than it is — always a plus. I actually can’t wait to make this one again.

Notes: 1. I used a mix of kalamata and mixed Mediterranean olives, as I didn’t have any oil-cured ones. But I really want to try it with . . . → Read More: FFwD: Provencal Olive Fougasse

FFwD: Saint-Germain-des-Pres Onion Biscuits

Onion Biscuits

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is indeed an onion biscuit. I liked these a lot. I made a half recipe and only seemed to have gotten seven biscuits, but I may have made mine a little big. Another item of note — I used red onion. I think that’s it. Oh, and they had a delightfully crunchy exterior.

If I try these again, I think they would be great with green onions too.

Here’s a link to everyone’s posts and my photos below. Good night.*
