HAH! You thought that I was going to miss out on posting a pumpkin pie recipe just in time for Thanksgiving didn’t you? Well, you were almost right but I snuck one on in there. I must confess that Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday – just behind Christmas and before Halloween ’cause I love candy. I thought that “I love candy” warranted all caps but I didn’t want to get carried away on dark chocolate peanut butter cups when this is supposed to be a PIE post.
Bread, bread, bread. Need I say more?
I am a fan of things that are easy and also relatively quick to make. Bread is usually pretty easy but it has to rise for like 8 hours, and who has time for that? Not this girl. This recipe calls for sugar, which a lot of traditional ciabatta recipes don’t have. I’m not Italian so I’m sure they’d be upset when I tell you to add sugar to the yeast but it decreases the rising time for the dough and lets you have tasty bread in under 3 hours. This week I’ll be munchin’ on this loaf along with one of my favorites, butternut squash soup.
