The Flexibility of Yeast Dough


"You're one of the few people who can get me to eat carbs." Oh really? Well can't say I blame you. The thing is, when I think over my years I rarely think of things like kale. In fact: I don't. I cook through culinary exploration, influenced greatly by life. An all-purpose Yeast Dough is something my grandmother often prepared to bake some of the tastiest desserts and side dishes imaginable. One recent afternoon, a friend of mine and I set aside a couple of hours to really show what one dough can do: Cinnamon Rolls, Donuts (Cinnamon-Sugar, Almond Glazed, Chocolate Flakes), Donut Holes (Traditional Glazed), Dinner Rolls, and Soft Pretzels. One dough, yet so many uses! Our afternoon of conversation and debating what to do created the activity.  Next time you're bored, try making a batch of dough and seeing what you can come up with!!

Oatmeal Cranberry Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Discovering delicious designs in the kitchen is part of the excitement in culinary exploration. After several test versions, this Oatmeal Cranberry Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie became the latest confection perfection:  melting-in-the-mouth, caramel-toned, cinnamon-hinting, without an oatmeal overload. I ate one out of the oven. I ate another after it cooled. I ate another for breakfast. I ate another with coffee. I ate…and I ate. These chewy cookies disappeared particularly fast among friends, which is either a credit to the cookie or a mere measure of how hungry my friends can be. Enjoy!!
