sweet hawaiian bread

This is an extremely easy recipe for sweet, Hawaiian bread. It is quite similar to the King’s Hawaiian Sweet Bread rolls at the grocery store. This bread is extremely easy to make in the bread machine. Nothing beats homemade bread -- and the bread machine makes it so easy. This bread is sweet, sunny, and fruity, just like the Hawaiian Islands. It also makes amazing french toast!

 Ingredients

3/4 cup juice (I always use Nantucket Nectar's Orange Mango, but any mango, pineapple or orange juice will work)
1 egg 
2 tablespoons vegetable oil 
2 1/2 tablespoons honey 
 3/4 teaspoon salt 
3 cups bread flour 
2 tablespoons dry milk 
2 teaspoons fast rising yeast or 2 teaspoons quick-rising yeast
Place ingredients in bread machine in order directed by manufacturer. 
Cycle: white, sweet, no timer. 
Setting: light.

    1. Thank you so much! That is so sweet! I would prove this until double in size (about 1-2 hours depending on the temperature of your kitchen).

  2. What bread maker do you recommend? My moms old one finally gave up the ghost while I was borrowing it. She doesn't want a replacement, but I want one for myself! :)

  4. What size loaf does this recipe yield? I'm guessing 2 lbs just from the amount of flour.

julia's banana bread

I just woke up from one of the best dreams I've ever had.  At the moment, I am sitting on Amtrak -- rolling through miles of factory towns and burnt out buildings on my way to New York City.  As much as I love the city that never sleeps, I seriously needed some sleep. Thank the Lord it's spring break and I can finally log out of my school e-mail account, hang up my backpack, and get some serious shut eye.  About an hour ago, the bumpiness of the train lulled me to sleep, and I was transported far, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city...


It's a bit of a pet peeve of mine when people tell me about their dreams.  Not their dreams as in aspirations, but their nonsensical, rambling, nighttime dreams about purple cows and police chases.  Please forgive me, but I need to share this awesome dream with you guys.  It's nothing crazy or complicated  -- just a small tree house, a winding road, and some really good banana bread.

recipe showdown: belgian waffles

It's humiliating.  It's tragic.  It's the decay of Western civilization.
... and I can't stop watching it.


Ever since I heard that little, blond, 4-foot-tall toddler's famous catchphrase"a dollar makes me holler honey boo boo," I've been in love.
She's hyperactive, uninhibited, and foul-mouthed... and I'm kind of obsessed.


But since this is technically a food blog, I should be talking about food, not the "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."  I did a little research and the Honey Boo Boo clan has some *pretty* interesting dishes.
Have you ever heard of "Sketti"?
Spaghetti, doused with a sauce that is one part margarine, one part ketchup.
However, the most infamous Honey Boo Boo specialty is her "go go juice" -- a secret mix of Mountain Dew and Red Bull that gets her "go go"-ing for her pageants.  If you aren't familiar with "go go juice," click here.  Thank me later.


Anyways, I have my own version…

sex in a pan

Did I catch your attention? Good.
This is a sinfully decadent, sinfully easy dessert with a sinfully rewarding response.

It's not the daintiest, nor the prettiest. As a matter of fact, it's basically a hot mess in a pan.
But you know what? Despite it's frightening appearance, people just can't keep their hands off of it.
I made this for the first time for my school's Winter Sports Banquet.  In the morning, I put it in the fridge, all wrapped up in foil with a big sign saying DO NOT EAT...


When I came back to get it for the banquet, some sneaky little devil had eaten half the pan.  I wonder who it was...
Was it the P.E. teacher, trying to get his chocolate fix before he had to teach another period of freshman Health?
Was it the librarian, trying to drown her sorrows due to the fact that no one checks out anything but textbooks anymore?
Was it that "innocent" little freshman boy from Baking club?
I'll never know...

However, what I do know is that som…
