German Pancakes with Caramel-Poached Pears

German pancakes, or Dutch babies, are the traditional Christmas morning breakfast from my childhood. While these take a little while to bake, you only need about three minutes, one bowl, and one whisk to throw together. Depending on what you top them with, they can go either sweet or savory.

No-Knead Kalamata Olive Bread

I adore no-knead bread. It’s so cheap and easy to make… once you spend that starting cash on the baking stone. But that’s only 20 bucks–50 for a really big pretty one with a lifetime guarantee. Think of all the money you spend on bread and pizza, and how easy it is to devour a… Continue reading No-Knead Kalamata Olive Bread
