Simple puff pastry

Do you remember these delightful ideas for folding puff pastry? This pastry dough is a miracle and the biggest accomplishment of French cooks. It's buttery in taste and fluffy, delicate and perfect for almost any baked recipe that is destined to impress. While this simple puff pastry is not as good as the original French recipe, it skips all that butter drama and difficulty, which will be a plus for less advanced cooks! Lightly knead the dough, let it rest in the refrigerator for some time and roll in one session.

Spongy waffles

Usually waffles are served crispy, but from time to time I like to make them soft and spongy — perfect base for a plum jam! :-) This recipe makes 4 delicious, spongy waffles that you can prepare in no-time!

Whole grain wheat bread

There's something really personal about making bread — you cannot make it well, unless you care deeply and commit lots of attention. While white breads are all the rage, from time to time it's nice to enjoy a more substantial, heavier bread and this whole grain wheat bread recipe delivers beautiful, soft and moist bread ideal both for sweet toppings (I personally like strawberry or plum jam) and salty ones (cheese, ricotta or cottage cheese). It's also packing quite a lot of fiber, which is healthy and will keep you full for longer time with less of the bread itself!

Soft bread

Making bread is an art, and it's also a science — but when you get to know basics, you can get really creative and make beautiful, tasty breads and bread rolls. You have to start somewhere, and this soft bread recipe is a terrific way to enjoy fresh, spongy, tasty bread whenever you want!

This recipe is a great base for more fancy breads — you can add more dry ingredients, e.g. nuts, sunflower seeds, dried tomatoes, olives, to make the bread more interesting and artisanal.

And they look amazing, so you can surprise your friends and family with both delicious and great looking bread! The only caveat is the required baking form in the appropriate shape, but you will not regret buying it after you make your first batch!
