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.
No yeast, but it rose beautifully.
I mean PERFECT BREAD!
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 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
Pinch of kosher salt for sprinkling
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.
Happy Dog = Blurry Tail
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.
