Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Different liquids will impart different characteristics to the crust of your bread. Water, a common choice, will cause the top of the bread to be crisp, and will significantly intensify the flavor of the wheat. Save some of the water you’ve used to boil potatoes and it will add a unique flavor, make the crust smooth, and cause the dough to rise faster due to the high starch content. Milk gives bread a rich, creamy color and leaves the bread with a fine texture and a soft, brown crust. Eggs will provide a moister crust. A liquid sweetener such as molasses, maple syrup, or honey will cause the crust to be dark brown and will keep it moist.



Vegetable or meat broth will give the bread a special flavor and provide you with a light, crisp crust. Alcohol of any type will give the bread a smooth crust with a flavor that may be similar to the alcohol used, especially beer; just don’t use too much or you’ll kill the yeast. Coffee and tea are commonly used to provide a dark, rich color and a crisp crust. But one of the most favorite tips may be the easiest not to mess up. A couple of minutes before your bread is done, just brush some apple cider vinegar onto the crusty. It will be a lovely brown color, and nice and shiny!

When bread dries out, it hardens. But to make hard bread as good as new, wrap the loaf tightly in a damp paper towel for 2-3 minutes, then remove the towel and heat the bread in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. When French or Italian bread hardens, sprinkle the crust with cold water and heat at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

We love this secret for a perfect loaf of bread, used by many bakers. Put some ice cubes in a shallow pan and put it in the oven with your loaf of bread. This ice cubes will produce a dense steam, and as the water evaporates, the crust becomes hard and crispy. The steam will also allow the bread to rise more evenly, giving you a crumb that’s firm and chewy.

 After you’ve removed bread from the oven, cool it on a wire rack. This will allow air to circulate around the bread and should prevent any soggy areas from developing in the loaf.

It’s never good to be dull…unless you’re a bread pan. For the best results when baking, avoid a shiny bread pan. A shiny pan reflects heat to such a degree that the bread may not bake evenly. However, a dark pan may cook the bread too quickly, resulting in burned bottoms. Your best bet?  A dull aluminum pan.

Who doesn’t love a warm sandwich? Luckily, you don’t need an expensive sandwich press to make delicious heated sandwiches – just use your microwave! When heating a sandwich in the microwave, you’ll get the best results using firm, textured bread such as French or Sourdough. The filling should be heated separately. If the filling is heated in the sandwich, be sure to spread it evenly over the bread and very close to the edges. Wait a few minutes before eating the sandwich, as the filling may remain very hot even if the bread is cool to touch.

Came across this bakery on facebook. I seen a friend of mine had it as one of his “Likes” so I checked it out and it sounds fantastic! Nothing but great reviesw on all their products. I ordered a loaf of the Sourdough (Low Carb) and a loaf of the 12 Grain Sandwich Bread along with a bread cutting board and bread knife. I’ll let you know how the bread is after recieving it. In the meantime you can check the web site out by clicking the link at the bottom of the post.
The Julian Bakery began in the quaint, historical town of Julian, in the mountains above San Diego, California. An expansion led the business to the seaside community of La Jolla, California, still in the county of San Diego.

The Proprietor:
Barbara Squier, a nutritionist and baking visionary. Barbara lives a natural, spiritual lifestyle, creating heavenly breads from God’s endless bounty.

Message from Barbara:
Hello, welcome to our Julian Bakery website. I am the owner of the Julian Bakery and a nutritionist.

I have designed our breads to have all the amino acids (proteins that are essential for life) in every slice. We grind our organic grains in a stone mill before baking, preventing rancid flour, while achieving more flavor and more nutrition. It is the same concept as fresh ground coffee. All of our main grains are organically grown, free of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. It is safe for children. All of our sourdough yeast free breads are cultured (the same concept as yogurt). They are easier to digest, contribute to the friendly flora of our intestines, and are a low stress food (providing predigested released nutrients from the culturing process).
Barbara’s mission is to bring healthy and delicious breads to everyone.

Quality is the heart of the Julian Bakery. Great care is taken to select wholesome, chemical free grains, seeds and nuts for stone grinding and in conjunction with a slow culturing process to provide the consumer with the best benefits bread can offer, full of amino acids and complex carbohydrates.

(This is one of the loaves I ordered)

Amazing Sourdough (Low Calorie & Low Carb)

This is our Amazing Sourdough bread. It is low calorie and low carb, making it ideal for any diet! This amazing 60 calorie per slice bread has only 4 net carbs per slice combined with 5g of protein.

What separates this bread from the rest is that we have added chicory root, which allows carbohydrates to pass through the body without them being digested.

This is why we designed this unique bread to curb your appetite, allowing you to take in less calories and carbs without the feeling of being bloated. This soft, delicious bread is absolutely great with any meal!

Lean-O Cioppino

Today’s Menu: Lean-O Cioppino w/ Sourdough Bread

When I seen this being made on Hungry Girl the other day it looked and sounded too good not to try! I went earlier today to stock up on the inredients and also picked up a loaf of freshly Sour Dough Bread, from the Kroger Bakery. It looked delicious but I had never heard of Cioppino so I looked it up and here’s what I found:

Cioppino is a fish stew originating in San Francisco. It is considered an Italian-American dish, and is related to various regional fish soups and stews of Italian cuisine. Cioppino is traditionally made from the catch of the day, which in the dish’s place of origin is typically a combination of dungeness crab, clams, shrimp, scallops, squid, mussels and fish. The seafood is then combined with fresh tomatoes in a wine sauce, and served with toasted bread, either sourdough or baguette. The dish is comparable to cacciucco and brodetto from Italy, as well as other fish dishes from the Mediterranean region such as bouillabaisse, burrida, and bourride of the French Provence, suquet de peix from Catalan speaking regions of coastal Spain.

This recipe from Hungrey Girl called for Clams and Shrimp. The recipe also called for Amy’s Organic Light In Sodium Chunky Tomato Bisque but they were out of stock of that so I went with a can of  Amy’s Organic Light In Sodium Cream of Tomato and when preparing it I added a half a can of Tomato Paste to it to thicken it up a bit. It’s very easy to make and every bit as delicious as it sounded! What a great combination to make a healthy and hearty Soup and it’s only 185 calories and 20 carbs. I topped it with some crumbled John Wm Macy’s Cheese Sticks and I had a side of Sour Dough Loaf Bread. This is a fantastic recipe, give it a try! I left the recipe along with the link to “Hungrey Girl” at the end of the post. For dessert later a 100 Calorie Breyer’s Ice Cream Bar.

Lean-O Cioppino

2011 Hungry Girl


Two 15-oz. cans reduced-sodium creamy tomato soup with 4g fat or less per serving (like the Light in Sodium version of Amy’s Chunky Tomato Bisque)

Optional garnish: fresh basil leaves


Place a nonstick pot on the stove, and set temperature to medium heat. Pour in the soup.

Add clams, shrimp, oregano, and basil. Stirring often, bring to desired heat, about 2 minutes.

If you like, season to taste with salt and pepper and garnish with basil leaves. Enjoy!
