From Chef Mary Berry’s Blog

Peanut Butter, Chocolate, Banana each alone are wonderful tastes.  Put them together in one recipe and it’s heavenly.  This is a beautiful bread that is topped with a chocolate ganache.  My husband loves ganache, so I know that this will be a winner in our house!

Panzella is one of our favorite salads.  It’s a great way to use stale bread.  This recipe adds a delightful twist by using rye bread.  And there comes a point that we are overwhelmed by all the tomatoes from our garden.  Homegrown tomatoes make this a great treat!  Great recipe!

Alexandra’s Mother’s Peasant No Knead Bread!

Posted on Updated on



I love bread.  Bread with butter is even better!  So I am always looking for a great recipe to make.  As I have gotten older, I want not just a great recipe, I want something that is quick and easy to make.  A couple of week ago, I did a some no knead rolls that turned out pretty good.  They need some work though and I will repost on that when I get satisfactory results.

But I have a great find!  I stumbled upon Alexandra’s Kitchen!  It’s a great website with some recipes I know I will be trying.  The first one that I just had to try out was a bread, of course!  It was her mother’s ‘no knead peasant bread.”  I loved it.  Toothy with a good crumb.  It didn’t go stale overnight.  My husband like it as well.  Check it out.    Keep Reading!

No Knead Bread Rolls

No Knead RollsYesterday was a crazy day for me.  A couple of meetings.  I promised my husband I would do some errands for him.  I promised myself I would plant the rest of the eggplant plants.  I also wanted to get ready to plant some Jalapeno peppers later this week.  By the time I got done and looked at the clock, it was 4:15.  Time to think about what’s for dinner.  There was a lot of fresh veggies and lettuce.  A salad?  Sounds good.  Is there any bread to go with it?  No bread!  Well, I didn’t feel like kneading bread.  I am not crazy about quick bread with salad.  I thought hmm…  Google is my friend.  So, I googled no knead bread rolls and got a lot of ideas.  However, this one on the Oprah website looked especially good.  It was for 24 rolls, so I cut the recipe in half(there is only my husband and me). It was easy to make and turned out great!  However, I did cook them a bit longer than I should have.  The half of recipe made huge rolls.  I will make this again and cut the recipe in half again so I am only making 6 rolls.  I will let you know how that turns out. If you try the recipe, please let me know what you think! Marcey
