For Foodies Out There

I woke up feeling really good today!
Whatever it was is gone.
And I did some cookin'!

First, I made an Asian Broccoli Slaw...

Toasting the Ramen noodles and almond slivers...

I put it together and promptly forgot to photograph the finish slaw. DUH. Note:  Do not use the dressing pictured. It wasn't nearly as good as the homemade dressing called for in the recipe. Find the full recipe HERE. I didn't follow it exactly.  I used 1/2 bag of broccoli slaw and 1/2 bag of regular cabbage slaw with grated carrots. I toasted the Ramen noodles and almond slivers for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Then I made something even better...Herbed Buttermilk Bread

Ready for the oven...

Oops, almost forgot the egg wash.

Perfect Bread!
No yeast, but it rose beautifully.

I didn't mean to yell.

So freakin' good!  You hear me?
I changed the recipe I found on Pinterest so here it is:

Herbed Buttermilk Bread

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper, ground
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 Tbsp dried parsley flakes
1 tablespoon fresh Rosemary, plus 1 teaspoon, chopped
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (canned fine)
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
Pinch of kosher salt for sprinkling

Egg Wash:
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon water

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pepper and mustard. Add the parsley, 1 tablespoon chopped Rosemary and cheeses. Stir.
In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, 2 whole eggs, and olive oil. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir just until combined and evenly moistened. Do not overmix. Scrape batter into prepared loaf pan.
In a small bowl, mix together egg yolk and 1 teaspoon water. Brush top of batter with egg wash. Sprinkle top of batter with remaining teaspoon of rosemary leaves and sprinkle with kosher salt.
Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in loaf pan 5 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack. Serve warm or room temperature.

And then...

We had sliders for supper!
I just had one because I was full from the bread.
But they were good.

Oh, yes...I'm feeling better for sure.

  1. So glad you're feeling better! I want to make slaw now. I make broccoli slaw pretty often with a yogurt-based dressing, but yours reminds me of a salad I once had which was made with bok choy and cabbage, with the ramen noodles and sesame dressing. A lady brought it to a barbecue I attended years ago and it was so delicious. I will have to try yours next.

  2. Glad to hear you're feeling better. I love home made bread and your loaf looks so yummy. It's so nice when it's still warm too! Thanks for the Ollie pic - what a happy little chappy. xox

  3. I'm so happy that you're feeling better Pammy Sue. Your recipes look delicious, but since I can't eat cabbage I think I'll be tring the bread recipe only, goodness it looks amazing. I can't wait to try it.

  4. I think I just saw that bread recipe somewhere! I use a similar one that uses Bisquick and dill weed that is absolutely scrumptious -- when I make the effort to bake it, that is! So glad you're feeling better.

  5. That bread looks amazing, Thanks for the recipe. I love sliders. Enjoyed the food porn.

  6. Glad you are feeling better Pammy Sue, your food looks delicious especially the bread and looking at the list of ingredients I'm sure I can find them all here so I must give this a try. :)

  7. Now you've made me hungry for bread, and sliders, and it's only 9:25 in the morning. lol. I am definitely going to try this bread recipe. Looks soooo darn good.

  8. Just one word YUMMY. That ramen noodle slaw is perfect for potlucks and family gatherings. First time I ever had it was a potluck at work. I think some people there would have licked the bowl if they had the chance. They passed out the recipe and it was called Oriental Salad.
