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 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 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.

  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.

  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.
