Look for us in this Sunday’s paper

Zoe and I will be in select newspapers all over the United States this Sunday, November 14.  Our flyer will have a Red Star Yeast coupon, and links to their site with video and both our Master recipes (whole grain and white).  If we’re not in your city this Sunday, you can still see the video and recipes (but not get the coupon) at breadin5minutes.com.

We’ve been baking with Red Star for as long as we’ve been baking (40 person-years?), and have been doing events with Red Star for almost a year now– great product, consistent results, and available in many forms (packets, jars, and bulk all over the place).  Check out my post about our neck-tag on the Red Star yeast bottles.

See you Sunday…

Pizza Lollipops ~ The Movie


Here is a fun video Jeff and I made with Jennifer Samuel from Unplanned Cooking about the ever popular pizza-on-a-stick. This version was made with the whole grain master recipe from HBin5 with classic pizza toppings rolled inside. It is an easy, quick and healthy snack for kids after school or a great idea for your New Year’s Eve Party.

Holiday Wreath Bread!

Tis the season for all things festive! Here is a very simple loaf that is gorgeous and will be the perfect addition to your holiday meal.  Despite its impressive appearance we promise it is easy to make.

You can watch Zoë make the Holiday Wreath loaf and a Panettone on KARE11 Showcase Minnesota.

We will also be doing a book signing at Cooks of Crocus Hill in Edina, MN this Thursday from 6-8:00pm. We’d love to see you all there!

Then on Friday December 12,  Jeff appeared on Fox 9 News at 8:30 am, to mix up more Holiday favorites in five minutes, and he also appeared on WMAR Channel 2 in Baltimore (the ABC affiliate) to show the same breads (click here to view).

Now for the Holiday Wreath Bread, and some Holiday gift suggestions: (more…)
