What Would Betty Do Logo Quick Cornbread

Quick and Easy Homemade Cornbread It was finally, finally a rainy night in California, and I wanted chili and cornbread. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize until the last possible moment that I didn’t have any buttermilk to make my usual cornbread recipe. I scoured the internet and quickly discovered that there aren’t exactly a ton of […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Everything’s All Focaccia

Delicious Rosemary Focaccia A few weeks ago, while I was traveling, The Husband purchased premade focaccia dough and baked it up for dinner with The Assistant. The boy was hooked. While I was surprised that he liked the intensity of the rosemary flavoring, he absolutely adored the soft texture. Plus, he was delighted to find […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Delicious Pumpkin Chocolate Bread If there’s anything that makes the Tiny Kitchen Assistant happy, it’s adding chocolate chips to everything: there are no muffins, pancakes or quick breads that are safe from his tinkering. Personally, I think it’s genius. This recipe is no exception. We took a basic family quick bread recipe and added half […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Cornbread (Without a Box Mix)

Yes, there are plenty of times where I’m rushing around before dinner and only have time to whisk the requisite ingredients into a box of Trader Joe’s cornbread mix. But on this particular night, I had a full array of ingredients: buttermilk, flour, stone ground cornmeal from Muddy Dog Coffee, and frozen fire-roasted corn kernels […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo You Can Make Pitas, Too

Homemade Pita Bread Ok, maybe in recent weeks I’ve become a little bit obsessed with grilling flat breads. First I made flatbread pizzas, inspired by Bryn at Then I made naan — without a fancy tandoor oven — on the grill. And now, with my goal of leaving no carb untested, I’ve made pitas. […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Homemade Indian Naan

Homemade Naan Bread Inspired by the success of the grilled flatbread pizza, I wanted to try my hand at other grilled breads. Naan seemed like an obvious choice. I’ll be honest: more often than not, I will heat up frozen naan from Trader Joe’s when I’m making an Indian meal. But for some reason, one […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Whole Wheat Banana Bread

I don’t know about you, but when I see the words “whole wheat” I immediately think of two words: healthy and blech. (Does “blech” count as a word?) I promise you that this recipe doesn’t taste like some sort of healthy food. It’s a modification of this one that I found on allrecipes. This is […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Pan Cubano (Cuban Bread)

There’s something about Cuban bread. It’s soft, smooth and perfectly suited to making Cuban sandwiches, or just accompanying a lovely Cuban meal. But for some reason I’d never actually attempted making it. One weekend, I was feeling inspired. I found a lot of recipes to work from, including one from my go-to source, 3 Guys […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Homemade Rye Bread

I’ve always loved a nice rye bread. I did not, however, have any illusions that such a thing could be created at home. That’s crazy. Isn’t it? Maybe not. I expected this recipe to be edible. I didn’t expect it to be where-did-you-find-a-Jewish-deli good. This recipe makes four 1-pound loaves. The bread freezes well; defrost […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Homemade Matzo

I’m not Jewish and I don’t celebrate Passover, yet I love matzo, clearly just an extension of my ongoing bread and carbohydrate addiction. Last year, I made homemade matzo for the first time. It’s ridiculously easy. While it doesn’t result in the flat, crispy cracker that you expect from Manischewitz, it does result in a […] Read More
