Honey Whole Grain and Rosemary Bread

Love it? Hate it? Crave it? Avoid it? If you live in the US, at least one of those probably describes your relationship with bread. Maybe all of them! The explosion of people who are trying to limit their gluten intake has made everyone who thinks about eating at least reconsider their relationship with bread at some point. If you do still eat bread, this seedy, honey whole grain rosemary bread is amazing. I made this recipe up a decade ago, and just pulled it out again after not making any bread for six year. Try it – it is awesome.

The Insanely Delicious Miso Sauce

Insanely delicious AND ridiculously simple It’s true, this miso sauce is so easy and tasty that it’s ridiculous! We started using it as a sushi dipping sauce, but we’ve used it as a pasta base, spring roll sauce, condiment sauce, and tonight a sauce for TACOS! I think this was a collaborative recipe. Rachel had been making a sauce in her Macrobiotic culinary classes that was very much like this, but without the mirin. I learned to make a sauce like this for pasta when I was living in Japan. Mostly we use this as a dipping sauce for sushi, but it also makes a...
