We love tacos. I can't tell you how many posts we have here that have that sentence in it. You know what makes tacos lousy? Store-bought tortillas. You know what makes tacos great? Homemade flour tortillas. . . .
I have been a long time fan of Mimi's honey bran muffins. Each time I dine there I HAVE to get one. And sometimes a second one to-go! Sadly, I no longer live near a mimi's so my craving for these muffins has gotten out of control. I've been itching to come up with Benefits of Bran Some people turn their noses up when they hear the word "bran", but I promise that you will LOVE these muffins. They are sweet, tasty, moist, and full of fiber for your belly. Bran is a wonderful ingredient to add . . .
Flatbread Pizza is one of my very favorite meals to order at a restaurant. I love the flavor infusions of herbs, sauces, spices on a light crispy crust. Usually the only time I order flatbread pizza is when I'm out with my girlfriends, so I wanted to make this, from scratch, at home for my family! I knew my kids would love it. The Dough! One of my favorite and most used recipes is this Pizza Dough recipe. It's so simple, very fast and no-fail. Seriously friends, it will change your . . .

This is the corn bread recipe that I grew up on. We all LOVED this recipe, my siblings and I would down the whole pan whenever my mom made it. This is really a perfect family recipe, not just because it makes a ton, but because of its taste and texture. Cornbread tends to be a little dry and have rough grainy texture. My kids will take a bite out of a traditional cornbread and be done with it. Kids are so sensitive with textures! so much more than taste. This cornbread is light, moist, sweet and . . .
I LOVE Coffee Cake...and its been years and years since I have made it, but recently I had a memory of it, which lead to a craving, which made me really want to make it again, especially for my kids to try coffee cake! Instead of a big cake I made it into muffins and they all loved it. Even this morning my son woke up and asked if we could make coffee muffins again. So we totally did. Coffee Cake is a savory cake with a sweet crumbly topping. It pairs so perfectly with a nice hot cup of . . .
Hey guys - so today is my birthday, so I thought - why not share a birthday recipe? I'm not a big bread maker. I'm not a patient person and all the waiting and raising just isn't my jive. I'll make rolls a few times a year and cinnamon rolls a few times a year. That's about my max. But what better reason to make bread than a birthday? Who wouldn't love to wake up to these birthday cake sweet rolls?! The dough is my mother-in-law's recipe and it is so so perfect. I did a twist on . . .
None of us here at Oh So have ever really submitted to a particular diet. We like our veggies, our fruit, our cookies, our steak, we like it all in moderation. I feel confident in saying that none of us would ever give up bread. It's also safe to say that we like to make things ourselves instead of buying them when we can--and when we have the time (there are 12 1/2 littles between us). I took Des' quick french bread recipe and turned it into a crusty round of bread bursting with . . .
I kinda love to experiment with exotic spices. It all started with my love of Indian food! One time, while at my favorite Indian place in Utah I asked the lanky 14-year-old boy what the main spice was in the Tikka Masala I loved so much. He held his finger up, skipped to the back kitchen, and came back to me. He leaned in and pronounced, "Garam masala." These muffins do not have garam masala thankyouverymuch, but they do have another exotic Indian spice in them: cardamom! It's really . . .
Fall is here and so is pumpkin season! What is your favorite pumpkin recipe? I'm partial to pumpkin cake, but cookies are a close second. Today I have another recipe that is near and dear to my heart - pumpkin bread. Years ago I belonged to a crafting group and my dear friend gave me a loaf of this bread. I may or may not have eaten the entire loaf myself. I sheepishly asked for the recipe and she graciously agreed. There is nothing better than a moist quick bread in my . . .
