Made these to bring for Thanksgiving dinner. I didn’t bring any home so they must’ve been tasty.

Week 48: Stromboli made with white wine pizza dough


My husband made this Stromboli look pretty, but I made the dough. Good way to use up some white wine.

Week 49: English Muffins (Harry Potter cookbook version)



This is one of the only bread recipes I’ve ever made that turned out better than the same in Bread Baker’s Apprentice. And we didn’t need the oven- save this for the summer next time!

Week 50: Multigrain extraordinaire bread rolls


This was the only roll recipe all year that turned out a roll that was crisp on the outside but soft on the inside. Perfect for little sliders.

Week 51: Panettone


My hubby waited all year for this bread. We made most of it bite sized in a mini muffin pan. Very tasty indeed.

Week 52: Sourdough baguettes


Since panettone uses sourdough starter, I figured I should make some plain sourdough as well. It turned out very nicely after about 16 hours of rising since it’s so cold!

* Unless otherwise noted/linked up, all of my bread recipes come from the Bread Baker’s Apprentice Book, which I would highly recommend.
