Dinner

Simple, Rustic French Bread

Posted by Jessie on February 22, 2011

Bread is surprisingly simple to make and homemade is far superior to most you can find in any grocery store. All you need is a little push to get you over the hurdle that it is far too difficult and you don’t have time. Here is that push! It IS easy. It is four ingredients and the majority of the time the dough is spent rising or in the oven. Fresh bread out of the oven with butter and jelly is good not only for breakfast or a snack, but I’ll admit to eating it for lunch, and I think once for dinner.


Snacks

Fresh Hummus

Hummus is a traditional middle eastern spread made with chick peas and tahini paste, which is ground sesame seeds. This recipe is from my uncle’s mother and is especially excellent because of spice added by the jalapenos. It is also a nice treat when it is served warm. My uncle Jack insists that you “don’t have enough hummus” on your piece of bread, even if it is caving under the weight of a giant mound.
