I made your ridiculously easy focaccia bread and I had to drop you a note to say it turned out beautifully! Just like your picture. I have been taking pictures and sending to my friends and sister to show off these beauties!
Made the bread for Easter and it baked up perfectly and paired really well with the ham. Nice to have an easy dinner bread recipe when you need it!
Oh my! This was my first attempt at any bread – so easy and so delicious!!
I never, ever comment on recipes but this is hands down the BEST bread recipe! So easy and turns out perfect every time. I made 6 loaves and froze them before baking for a big family dinner and everyone asked me for the recipe after!
I’ve made the rolls about 4 times now and each time, they’ve came out wonderfully (and I am new to this whole no-knead bread baking thing).
Simply amazing!! I have made these rolls twice this week…My 29 year old son asked for them instead of his traditional Birthday Cake 🙂 Thanks so much…
Ridiculously easy and, according to my six-year-old, crazy great!
You can do it too! Homemade bread is so delicious and on a different level from anything you can buy. It takes any meal up a notch and makes a perfect starter or side to whatever you are serving.
This easy, no-knead, no-mixer, Cinnamon Raisin Brioche Bread has a sweet, buttery, tender-crumb and it's studded with plump raisins and swirled with ribbons of cinnamon sugar. (WARNING: it's IMPOSSIBLE to eat just one slice of this bread!)
The best brioche I’ve ever had. Thank you for your scrumptious and easy to make recipe. I love nuts so I added a scoop of walnuts. Delicious. Yes, truly ‘impossible to eat just one slice’. Also, thank you for the labels; they are pretty, elegant. A lovely touch.
These Ridiculously Easy Brioche Dinner Rolls almost make themselves! There's 15-minutes light labor on your part (no-mixer, no-kneading!) then the yeast and oven work the crazy delicious magic!
These rolls were the absolute best. They makes me feel like I am remotely competent in the kitchen. So thank you.
Stir together this one-bowl, no-mixer No-Knead Brioche Bread in minutes. Let it rise, then shape, bake and get ready for tender, buttery bread that will take the show for toast, sandwiches or at your next dinner party!
This looked and seemed too easy to be true. I live at 10000+ feet and was sure this would not work. WRONG. It worked perfectly. This is a delicious bread, perfect texture, and taste. Thank you a million. Still going WOW!
This truly is the Perfect Banana Bread! It's a super-easy, one-bowl, no-mixer, moist, flavorful, tender-crumbed, recipe with beautiful, consistent results.
My 9 yr old granddaughter loves to learn cooking skills with me. We made this today (actually she did). So good!!
This Ridiculously Easy Rosemary Bread definitely earns its ridiculously easy name but, even better… it’s ridiculously delicious!
These Easy Artisan Rolls truly are unbelievably easy. Stir up the dough then go to bed. In the morning, shape and bake. Unbelievably delicious too!
I just started making bread three months ago. These are the best, easiest rolls ever. Will never buy store-bought again. Thank u!
These tall, flaky, Ridiculously Easy Cheddar Chive Biscuits are melt-in-your-mouth-delicious. They will have you quite smitten, at the first bite!
These biscuits are required for every family vacation and holiday. Have already made 2 batches for our beach week -thank you
With less than 10-minutes of hands-on time and no-kneading, the name Ridiculously Easy Focaccia Bread says it all! Almost. It’s also ridiculously delicious!
Another fantastic recipe! I can’t believe how ridiculously simple and ridiculously good this bread turned out. Was a bit concerned since I left the 2nd rise for over 3 hours. The bread was perfectly crispy on the outside and soft inside. This recipe is a keeper for sure. Thank you for sharing.
These delicious, golden glazed Buttermilk Brioche Buns have a soft, tender crumb, and come together, start to finish, in less than an hour! They are amazing with this Brown Sugar Balsamic Pulled Pork.
Made the buns yesterday, WOW so good! My bread making skills have mixed results but these were perfect. And, done in a hour as promised. The detailed instructions were so helpful I will be making them often. Thanks so much.
This delicious, pillowy soft Turkish Flatbread is an easy, one-bowl-no-mixer recipe. It’s perfect with hummus, tabouli, for wraps and so much more! It pairs perfectly with this Grilled Chicken Shawarma and this Turkish Tomato Cucumber Salad.
What a great recipe, did these last night and everybody including all 4 kids loved them. The instructions make it easy to get right. I remember having a bread like this on IOS and have tried to 30 year to find something similar and now I have. Thank you
Loaded with healthy seeds and a generous scoop of whole wheat flour, this ridiculously easy, one-bowl, no-knead Seeded Focaccia Bread is also ridiculously delicious!
I feel as though I’ve just had a spiritual encounter in my kitchen as I sit here devouring the first loaf, and will soon be on to the second if I don’t put it out of sight. My children are in agreement. I love how adaptable it is as well, with the ability to use any seeds/herbs/seasonings I have on hand. I can’t thank you enough for this insanely simple recipe that I’m sure will be a staple in our household from now until forever.
This unique, delicious Cheddar Herb Savory Irish Soda Bread goes well with soups, salads and just about any entree and yet comes together in well under an hour! It always brings rave reviews from young and old alike, Irish or not!
