The Best Oopsie Bread Stuffed with Pulled Pork (Low-Carb)

THE BEST OOPSIE BREAD

OOPSIE IS A LOW-CARB BREAD REPLACEMENT THAT IS TAKING THE WORLD BY STORM! If you haven’t eaten bread in months and you crave it THIS is the easiest and tastiest alternative in my opinion. I’m not a low-carb eater but my wife is and I’m the guinea pig who helps her create recipes and has to taste them first like this Oopsie Bread which I gave 5 stars. Don’t worry if you are thrown off by the captivating name of Oopsie bread because I was as well. My wife came to me one day and said the her friend who is also on a low-carb diet made this recipe for low-carb bread called, Oopsie bread. I said, Oopsie what? You probably did too BUT let me tell you even the skeptic in me was changed once I tucked into that delicious low-carb crock-pot pulled pork on 2 Oopsie bread rolls. Where does the Oopsie Bread name come from? I did a little research hoping to find out about Oopsie bread and just as the name suggests it was made as a mistake but a mistake that has made non-bread eaters rejoice. If it were me the recipe would be […]

Cinnamon French Toast With Mango

CINNAMON FRENCH TOAST WITH MANGO

AN EASY FRENCH TOAST RECIPE Most people have the ingredients to make Cinnamon French Toast in their house but they might not know how to make it. Believe me making Cinnamon French Toast is so simple you will be making if often like we do in the Yeassaey house. Breakfast foods for most people consist of muffins, oatmeal, bagels, cereals, smoothies, fruits, yogurt, eggs, bacon, ham, sausages, hashbrowns, toast and so on. Sometimes it’s nice to go the extra mile and splurge to make french toast or even pancakes. I’m sure many of you out there will admit to eating breakfast on the run most days but it really is nice to sit down to a proper breakfast to savour the wee morning hours before work or on the weekend. I’ve had oven baked french toast before and it’s good as well but it will take you a bit more time. This recipe is for the speedy person in you especially if you have a crowd of hungry eaters waiting at the table. Our son is now a year old and once in a while we like to make what we call back in the UK, ‘Eggie […]

Easy Cheesy Chili Cornbread Muffins

Easy Cheesy Chili Cornbread Muffins

YES IT’S CHILI IN A MUFFIN! I bet you thought this was just a cheesy cornbread muffin with chili powder but NO it’s a Cheesy CHILI Cornbread Muffin. No need to cook up a pot of my Turkey Chili or Mr. CBB’s Slammin Chili with these because I’m giving you the cornbread muffin and the chili all in one. The Chili Pepper is widely used around the world but did you know it’s spelled differently which is why you may see chile con carne, or chilli con carne. Chili pepper, the spicy fruit of plants in the genus Capsicum; sometimes spelled “chilli” in the UK and “chile” in the southwestern US Now that Fall is in the air and back to school is in full swing for the kids I’m busy in the kitchen using my free time to create delicious recipes for my family. If I can make ahead and freeze meals to make week-night cooking easier, I’ll do that. I have used this basic chili cornbread recipe for years as it was in one of my old recipe books which I can’t seem to recall. I have tweaked the cornbread recipe to my liking through trial and […]

Spiced Apple Bread

spiced apple bread

SIMPLE QUICK BREAD If you are looking for apple recipes you’ll want to add this spiced apple bread to the menu this week. Apples are everywhere in September especially at the farmers markets where you can buy bushels of them for a reasonable price. Also, with the Fall season around the corner apples are waiting to picked from the trees so now is a good time to harvest them. Now that the leaves are falling to the ground and seasons are changing this spiced apple bread is the perfect dessert. Quick breads have long been a favourite in many households not only because they are easy on the budget but they are fast to make. I’m a huge fan of apples and since I had a spare can of apple pie filling in my pantry I decided to create this spiced apple bread. Typically I would make my apple pie filling or apple sauce which you can do or you can use this shortcut that I’m taking to use up a pantry item so it doesn’t go to waste. If you don’t have apple pie filling in your cupboard like me you can easily substitute with a homemade spiced […]

Today I’m going to show you how to make pizza buns which you can enjoy on their own or stuff them to make a sandwich.

We’ve all had to learn from our mistakes which helped us create experiences. All in all this pizza bun dough recipe will take about an hour to make and get ready for the oven.

Traditional Scottish Baps or Buns

traditional scottish baps

BREAD MAKING MADE EASY Scottish Baps also called buns when homemade are fresh soft pockets of bread that are perfect for a sandwich. Just recently I started making buns again because the numbers in our budget were just getting too high. As you all know I love to be busy in the kitchen and looking for ways to help lower our grocery budget. One thing I like to do is make all the treats we eat in the house instead of buying commercially made products. My kids enjoy my Milk Toffee, Cinnamon Buns, Cherry Pie Minis, Granola Bars or even my Jam-filled Oatmeal Squares. Honestly, I could go on and on sharing recipes with the amount of homemade baking and cooking that I do. It suits our family and our budget. We have all discussed the cost of living, and living within our means lately and the biggest thing that was eating into our budget for a long time was bread and buns for sandwiches. I know you may think I’m joking but yes bread products can easily drive the budget higher each week. I was buying bread at reduced prices and freezing them but was finding they didn’t keep […]

Cheddar Chive Biscuits

Cheddar and Chive Biscuits 1

A TASTE OF FRESHNESS If you are a fan of cheddar cheese biscuits you must try my cheddar chive biscuits which takes the taste up one notch in flavour. I don’t know about you guys but I love cheese and so does the rest of the family. We often buy cheese when it’s on sale and freeze it so we always have cheese in the house especially for cooking. Adding cheese to biscuits seems like a natural thing to do but you can turn any plain biscuit into something magical in your mouth with a host of flavours sweet or savoury. My garden is now in full bloom with my veggies growing at extra speed with all this rain we’ve been getting. My chives have done exceptionally well considering I’ve left them out all winter long. Mind you it’s pretty hard to kill chives, spring onions and garlic. I have already cut them about 3 times and they continue to produce for me. I’m sure if I take them in over the winter with my luck things would be different. Cheddar chive biscuits Tonight I am making my bruschetta pasta salad and these cheddar chive biscuits to […]

Margherita Pizza

Margherita Pizza

ONE OF THE BEST PIZZAS YOU WILL MAKE I haven’t met many people who say they aren’t fans of pizza and today I’m going to make your mouth water with what I call my Margherita Pizza. There isn’t a gathering that I’ve held or been to where I’ve made this pizza where friends and family are wanting the recipe. Now, they won’t have to ask as my secret Margherita recipe will be shared here today and available forever. What I love about making homemade pizza is that my family can get involved and we all enjoy creating a custom pizza that we will all enjoy. No one says a pizza has to be topped with just mozzarella and pepperoni. Don’t worry if you don’t have round pizza baking sheets or any mad dough throwing pizza skills either. I make my pizza in square pans and cut them into squares and you know what? They taste the same as if it were shaped like a round pizza pie. Pizza any day If I do say so myself nothing beats pizza whether it’s on a weekday or a Friday night and I’ve even had the pleasure to eat pizza […]

Simple homemade plain bagel

Homemade bagel wm

HOT BAKED BAGELS We enjoy a good bagel in this house and although it’s easy to buy bagels when grocery shopping we tend to enjoy homemade bagels the best. Yes, I know you are thinking, she even makes bagels and it’s true I do. I try to make as much homemade food as I can for my family instead of having to rush in and purchase convenience items just so they can enjoy something they love. My family doesn’t complain about the homemade cookies, cakes and delicious meals that come out of our kitchen. I hope one day they can teach their own children the simple art of following a recipe, basic ingredients, cooking and baking techniques which I share with them each time they are my little helpers. With the rising costs of everyday produce and other grocery items I can cut my grocery budget and save when I make food homemade like bagels instead of opting for commercial baked bagels. If I can make it, I’ll give it go. Bagels are expensive and for just six in a packet for a decent bagel the price can hit upwards of $3.00 or more so it’s a luxury item. […]

Stollen bread for the Christmas holidays

Christmas-Stollen-Bread

SWEET AND SIMPLE THIS FRUIT BREAD IS PACKED FULL OF FLAVOUR If it’s a sweet treat you crave but don’t want to indulge in chocolate or something ooey gooey then this recipe is a must try. Christmas prep is in full swing at my house and the hustle and bustle in the kitchen only means that I’m baking up a long list of holiday favourites for everyone to enjoy. I like to be ahead of the game and get some treats and breads ready in case of unexpected guests or even just as a sweet treat on a cold winter’s day! With so many rich, traditional foods at Christmas, it can be a welcome change to be offered a slice of delicious home-made Stollen bread with butter, cheese, or a homemade preserve such as my carrot marmalade which I also use in this recipe. With the coming and goings of expected and unexpected guests during the Christmas holidays it’s a good idea to have a stand-by recipe for bread suitable for all occasions. This Stollen bread recipe offers just that and it’s not that difficult to make but it’s the culture behind the bread that most people often wonder […]

The other day one of my fans and I can’t remember who mentioned or liked this cauliflower pizza recipe and I knew I just had to make it. I thought it was a brilliant idea since we had a great big bowl of cauliflower mash in the refrigerator that my wife and I made the previous day instead of mashed potatoes. Her sister came around with a head of cauliflower that they weren’t going to use up on time and asked if we […]

Homemade Olive Pita Bread

Homemade Olive Pita Bread

Making homemade olive pita bread is easier than you think and it won’t break the grocery budget. Even if you don’t like olives in your pita bread simply leave them out of the recipe. We’ve been buying pita bread lately to get away from traditional loaves of bread and it’s much more versatile for us as a couple. Although we normally buy it we wanted to try and make homemade pita bread to see if it was worth all the hoopla in the kitchen. It sure was, absolutely worth every penny and the time and effort to make it. This is now going to be a regular recipe in our home although I may modify the flour for my wife who would want a whole wheat pita. You can flavour your pita bread with olives, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, chives and parsley. You really can add any spices you like to this pita bread recipe to make it your own custom bread. For this recipe I used a white all-purpose flour although you don’t have to stick with white flour as there are other options. If you love pita bread and you can’t have white pita you can easily make a whole wheat […]
