Potato Bread

If my hubby does the grocery shopping he buys potato bread and of course the kids love it. I have always wanted to try baking my own.  Finally, I made the time.  It was soft and delicious!! I added some grated Parmesan and a little garlic power.  We ate it up so quick!!
Potato Bread
adapted from
1 1/4 cups warm water
2 teaspoons yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1 egg
2/3 cup mashed potatoes
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4-5 cups flour
Put the warm water, yeast and sugar in the mixing bowl.  Stir and let sit for a few minutes until the yeast begins to bubble a bit. Then add all the rest of the ingredients, but only about half the flour.  Add enough flour to make it really soft and pliable, knead for about 6-8 minutes, and let it rise covered with plastic wrap for 1 hour. Punch it down,shaped it into two loaves and let it rise another 35 minutes till doubled.
Bake it at 375 degree for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and sounds hollow when you tap the tops of the loaves.
I like to rub the tops of the loaves with butter when they first come out of the oven.  Something my Grandmother always did.

*Optional: I added 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 cup grated Parmesan to the dough mixture.  I then sprinkled the tops of the loaves with the Parmesan the last five minutes of baking.
I think it would be fun to experiment with different flavors of potatoes, garlic mashed, butter, ranch and ect.
I made this the day before the power first went out and it was heavenly to eat just plain!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
